The Mk2 Lander-can is a Command Module housing two Kerbal crew members during their mission.

Usage

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.

Description

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