The Shock Cone Intake is an air intake for jet engines. It is currently the "largest" intake area, with 20% more area than than the Ram Air Intake, and 50% more than the Circular Intake. At 0.024 tonnes empty, the shock cone is proportionally heavier than either, partially offsetting this advantage. Originally a part of the Spaceplane Plus mod, it has become a stock part as of version 0.25.
