This cockpit has only one attachment node, a special Mk2 shape and generates decent lift, which essentially determinates this cockpit's role. As a [[spaceplane]] cockpit it can hold two [[kerbonaut]]s, but one is enough to control the vehicle so this cockpit gives a limited "crew transporting capability" to the [[craft]]. For enhancing this property use the [[Mk2 Crew Cabin]]. The Mk2 Cockpit stores some (15 units) [[monopropellant]], and adequate amount (150 units) of [[electric charge]] too. The amount of this [[resource]]s and their reserve-usable can be adjusted, naturally.

Mk2 Cockpit is a Mk2 sized cockpit adopted from the "Spaceplane Plus"(SPP) mod by PorkJet.

Usage

Panorama view from captain's seat(left)

It is best used in spaceplanes because the Mk2 shape generates decent lift. It has one attachment node at aft, thus it conventionally is placed at the front of a set of Mk2 parts. Otherwise it is alike with the standard Mk2 Inline Cockpit, featuring the same IVA and crew capacity of two. One crew is enough to control the vehicle so this cockpit gives a limited “crew transport” capability to the craft. The Mk2 Crew Cabin is ideal for adding crew capacity.

This cockpit has the following adjustable resources and other tweakables:

Product description

Fits not one, but two Kerbals! This spearhead-shaped new Mk2 design from the lovable folks over at the C7 Aerospace Division should help you pierce the great blue yonder known as the Sky.

Changes

  • Initial release

Trivia

  • One of the displays has a k-OS crash screen on it, which is almost identical to one shown by Microsoft Windows 95.
