The Mk1 Cockpit is a cockpit-style command module that is designed to be placed on the nose an airplane or spaceplane that uses parts of a small radial size.


Interior View of the Cockpit Mk1 on the runway

The Mk1 Cockpit is generally found at the front of the spacecraft and can house one Kerbal crew member. It's especially useful for IVA flights because its large glass canopy offers a wide field of view; however, it cannot mount an inline parachute because it lacks a frontal node and is less useful for rockets because it's heavier than the Command Pod Mk1. In 1.0.5 a "docking mode" was added. When the screen is clicked, the IVA view moves to a location behind the seat, looking up through windows designed to look at a docking port directly above the craft.
