Atlas V is an expendable launch system and the fifth major version in the Atlas rocket family. It was originally designed by Lockheed Martin, now being operated by United Launch Alliance (ULA), a joint venture between Lockheed and Boeing.

This addon includes real-life launch commentaries of individual Atlas V missions that were conducted since 2002. It has flown flawlessly 86 times as of November 2020, delivering payloads into various destinations, from LEO to the deepest portions of the Solar System

REQUIRED ADDONS:
See the Statistics.txt for the info on when the launch audio starts from the countdown, and instructions on how to operate them manually on start

To minimize hard drive space, see the ReadMe.txt about which Atlas V mesh/texture on each required addon should be installed

INITIAL RELEASE: 2021-Jan-19

Added 12 missions, covering Flights 1 to 20:
  • Flight 1 = AV-001 = Hot Bird 6
  • Flight 2 = AV-002 = Hellas Sat 2
  • Flight 3 = AV-003 = Rainbow 1 (EchoStar 12)
  • Flight 4 = AV-005 = AMC-16
  • Flight 5 = AV-004 = Inmarsat 401
  • Flight 6 = AV-007 = MRO
  • Flight 7 = AV-010 = New Horizons
  • Flight 8 = AV-008 = Astra 1KR
  • Flight 9 = AV-013 = STP-1
  • Flight 10 = AV-009 = NROL-30
  • Flight 11 = AV-011 = WGS-1
  • Flight 12 = AV-015 = NROL-24
  • Flight 13 = AV-006 = NROL-28
  • Flight 14 = AV-014 = ICO G1
  • Flight 15 = AV-016 = WGS-2
  • Flight 16 = AV-020 = LRO/LCROSS
  • Flight 17 = AV-018 = Nemesis 1 (PAN)
  • Flight 18 = AV-017 = DMSP-18
  • Flight 19 = AV-024 = Intelsat 14
  • Flight 20 = AV-021 = SDO
- Missions scratched have no official addons yet on Orbiter, and therefore no sounds were included

- No official archive footage were found for the launches of AMC-16 and WGS-1, therefore no sounds were made also, but nevertheless simulated in Orbiter because of available addons

- Fixed guidance files for DMSP-18 and Nemesis 1 (PAN) so that their fairings will now jettison automatically
