Default Space - 15959 Nuclear Mars flyby design "Hyperion"

A design for a manned Mars flyby mission, using nuclear engines, by Krafft Ehricke,

There would be a fleet of three or four, which I decideed to name Bradbury, Bonestell, Burroughs and Lowell.

Very limited (and somewhaty contradictory) information available. What there is I got from Winchell Chung's always excellent "Atomic Rockets" site:

Very cool. They fit in very nicely with your NIV and Tube station models.
Why would they need to discard the tanks ?

Saving weight,

I can't find it explicitly mentioned, but I think the mission profile involves 'stopping' at Mars, (without landing), before firing up the engines to come home.
