The Protective Rocket Nose Mk7 is a size 2 cap that fits in the front of a rocket.

Usage

This nosecone has a lower drag coefficient than most parts with the 0.22 update, potentially making rockets more stable. Originally this part was useless before 1.0 because nosecones at that time added more drag, but after the aerodynamics overhaul, this part is being made useful.

Product description

A large nose cone for covering up exposed areas of big rockets.
