This is the smaller version of the Mk2 Lander-can which fits only a single Kerbal. Like the name suggests, it is useful for landers, because of the large window that allows a view to the outside and ground. The flat octagonal surfaces on the outside allow easy attachment of radial engines and/or landing gear. It is however very fragile, which makes landings after the potential loss of landing gear very risky. It also has the lowest mass of any manned command pod in the game and as such is useful in situations where a lot of delta-V is required. The low mass also means you can stack two of them and have a two-man lander at a fraction of the mass and cost of the Mark 2. (Though it tends to be top heavy in such a configuration.)
