The Structural Intake is a air intake which is naturally radially mounted and supplies jet engines with intake air. Although the ability to attach the StrutCo Cubic Octagonal Strut radially has allowed for functionally radial mounting of intakes designed for node attachment to the ends of fuel tanks. The structural intake also suffers from the somewhat bulkier looking air scoop having more than double the area (0.006 vs 0.0025) while massing the same.
This intake was included in the Spaceplane Plus mod which was integrated into KSP 0.25.
