The Mk2 Lander-can is a Command Module housing two Kerbal crew members during their mission. Inexplicably, the agency description for its manufacturer, Sean's Cannery, calls this the “Lander Can Mk1 Cockpit”.

Generally placed at the top of the rocket as part of a lander, the Mk2 Lander-can provides full command module functionality. Unusually, it features a size 1 node on top and a “Rockomax” size 2 on bottom.

Like its smaller counterpart the Mk1 Lander Can, the Mk2 Lander-can is well-suited to perform IVA landings given its superior downward visibility versus other pods. However, the lander cans are also the most fragile class of all command pods with an impact tolerance of merely 8 m/s. Direct contact with the ground should be avoided; a landing strut or at least a more durable part should be used to protect it.

Despite the manufacturer's description, the Mk2 Lander-can has the same thermal tolerance as other manned command modules and is able to survive atmospheric re-entry, but requires more than one parachute to land safely.

Product description

This cozy capsule seats two, and is very lightweight. However, don't expect it to survive atmospheric entry or even a sneeze.
