The NCS Adapter is a strut-type part that acts as an adapter between size 0 and size 1 parts of rockets and spaceplanes. It can hold small quantities of liquid fuel to power jet or nuclear engines.

Usage

The NCS adapter is made for placing nose cones onto spacecraft, but like every adapter it can be used for other purposes. It holds 80 units of liquid fuel as default, but this amount is tweakable, of course.
