With very few free time to spare on drawing, it took me some three months to complete this:

The Atlas rocket family.

I'm pretty confident that 99% of all Atlas -from the first Atlas-A to the latest Atlas V- are represented here, including two planned variants supposed to fly in the near future and the canceled Atlas Heavy proposal.
For earlier launches I've included a list of the payloads carried (and even the exact launch date in some cases, regardless if it resulted in a failure or not -like all launch attempts on the Atlas-Able carrying the Pioneer probes for example), recent launches with more commercial payloads and a longer operational life of the rocket used would be far too long and complex to list, so I've left them out. Take it as a sort of nod/homage to the earlier space exploration era.

One last trivia. The LV-3C Atlas-Centaur-A first and only launch is proably the one which has been seen the most without people knowing which rocket is it. It's the rocket blowing up right at the end of the movie Koyaanisqatsi.

Spectacular work BB.

You are going to make me have to do something to help fill out the US rockets.

The Atlas family is magnificent. 10/10.

That is super work!! I knew the Atlas was long-lived but I hadn't realised there were so many variants!

Unfortunately, I recieved some extra insight that made me realize the Atlas diameter is off in every drawing. All earlier models should be 21 pixels wide while they are 23. And the Atlas V is 29 instead of 25. the diameter proportions between Atlas and Atlas V is correct, but this does not change they are too wide. I've made an error from the start and took it over to every subsequent model I've added.
How I missed that still somehow escapes me, but this does not change the ends.
That entire sheet is worth nothing but the trash bin.

20 pixels if you want to be exact as the tanks are exactly 10 feet in diameter (just like the Titans).

Really great work BB! It's always pleasure to see well produced space-related designs.
But you don't have to credit me for that tiny capsule :) consider it as a part...

I read this later... It would be sad to throw these in the trash bin :( Yet; I agree it's quite hard to fix, if you don't want to allow compromises. I truly hope, you didn't start these with the V N22 :shock:

Hi BB1987. Your rocket sheet is an Excelent addition, thanks!
