The Shock Cone Intake is an air intake for jet engines. It currently[outdated] has the largest intake area, with 20% more area than than the Ram Air Intake, and 50% more than the Circular Intake. Its larger area induces more drag (when toggled “Open”), but improves upon the Ram Air Intake's ability to collect intake air at the highest reaches of an oxygenated atmosphere. 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.
