Also, why use an aerodynamic design with heashield and wings/flaps on the Moon?
It's never been that:

Whether it's nuts or complex or not, getting in and out has also always been clear: lift at the airlock hatch. Even the NBL training has incorporated it.

Yeah, afaik they are also integrating mockups for Gateway at the SVMF in Houston.

At ESA they already train for geological excursions on the surface of Moon and Mars.

The interior looks nice for now. Damn, if I only could become an astronaut or engineer or "only" a trainer... 😥 These mockup facilities already are a blayground for big boys and girls before one travels into space.
