The Advanced Canard is a control surface, akin to the AV-R8 Winglet and Standard Canard, except that the Advanced Canard is intended for use on an aircraft. That intention has not stopped space programs all across Kerbin from using the (slightly) lighter and more powerful control surface for a vertical rocket. The Advanced Canard offers different dimensions from the Standard Canard, most notably a shorter attachment base. They otherwise have identical stats.


They need to be mounted curving forward otherwise their function is greatly reduced.

Product description

Our engineers thought this design looked "high tech" and therefore must be clear improvement on earlier models.


  • New model and texture
  • Rebalanced for the new aerodynamics
  • Initial Release
