Generally placed at the top of the rocket as part of a lander, the Mk2 Lander-can provides full command module functionality. It features large radial size nodes on top and bottom.
Due to its superior visibility to the other pods, the Lander-can is generally used when doing IVA landings.
Keep in mind that the Lander-can has an impact tolerance of merely 8 m/s, making it the most fragile of all command pods, along with its smaller version, the Mk1 Lander Can. That means direct contact with the ground should be avoided, and a landing gear or at least a more stable component should be used to protect it. The Lander-can is able to survive entry into Kerbin, but requires more than one parachute to land safely.
|“|| This cozy capsule seats two, and is very lightweight. However, don't expect it to survive atmospheric entry or even a sneeze.
