The Mk1-2 Command Pod is a Command Module housing three Kerbal crew members during their mission.

Usage

Generally placed at the top of the rocket, the Mk1-2 Pod provides full command module functionality. It has twice the torque of most other manned cockpits. For small or medium-sized rockets, this is often sufficient.

The Mk1-2 Command Pod features a small radial size node on top, typically used for parts like the Mk16-XL Parachute, SAS modules or RCS tanks. It also has a large radial size node on the bottom. The Pod is outfitted with several steps under the crew hatch as well as two windows facing upwards and two more sideways windows the crew can look through during IVAs.

This command pod has a high impact tolerance of 45 m/s which makes it much more stable that most other parts. The result is that the pod is often the only part of a ship which survives a crash. That's good for the crew when the crash happened on Kerbin, but not so good when on another body, because it usually means the crew is stranded without a way to get home. But note that when it comes to pure impact tolerance, the Mk3 Cockpit intended for spaceplanes has an even higher rating.

Description

This modern cockpit is designed to be fully re-useable. Its spacious cabin can hold a maximum of 3 crew.
