KV-2 ‘Pea’ Reentry Module
The KV-2 'Pea' Reentry Module is a Command Module housing one Kerbal crew member during their mission. It has a rounded shape, similar an onion or Stayputnik. The KV-2 is based off of Vokshod (2 person variant).
Generally placed at the top of the rocket, the KV-2 Pea provides basic command module functionality.
Notably unlike the previous pods, the KV-2 has a small integrated heatshield, no monopropellant, and no reaction wheels. The last one requires extra care in craft design, else a mission could be curtailed or lost due to limited control options. It is lighter than the other 2-kerbal pods, with the exception of the Munar Excursion Module.
