Unlike the [[Mk2 Cockpit]], it has 2 attachment nodes, one in the forward and the other at the aft, instead of only having 1 node, allowing it to be placed inline among other Mk2 parts. It is best used in [[spaceplane]]s, because the special Mk2 shape generates decent lift. It uses the same [[IVA]] as the basic Mk2 Cockpit. 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 (25 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.

The Mk2 Inline 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 two attachment nodes, fore and aft, allowing it to be placed inline with other Mk2 parts. Otherwise it is alike with the standard Mk2 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

After 'accidentally' snapping the nose off of the Mk2 Cockpit, the engineers over at the C7 Aerospace Division realised that such a design looked quite functional. They quickly hammered out the following part and spruced it up for all your inline spaceplane cockpit needs!
