In Orbiter, the Russian MIR station is still in orbit around Earth and can be used for docking approaches. Furthermore, unlike its real-life counterpart, Orbiter’s MIR is orbiting in the plane of the ecliptic, which makes it an ideal platform to launch lunar and interplanetary missions.

MIR sends a transponder (XPDR) signal at default frequency 132.10 which can be used for tracking the station during a rendezvous maneuver.

MIR supports 3 docking ports, with the following IDS transmitter frequencies:

  • Port 1 135.00
  • Port 2 135.10
  • Port 3 135.20
