The full BepiColombo stack seen in ESA's test centre in May 2017.

From bottom to top: the Mercury Transfer Module (sitting on top of a cone-shaped adapter, and with one folded solar array including protective cover visible to the left); the Mercury Planetary Orbiter (with the solar array seen towards the right, also folded with cover), and the Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter's Sunshield and Interface Structure (MOSIF). The Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter sits inside the MOSIF, which will be discarded after arriving at Mercury.
