The Mk2 Command Pod is a command module capable of housing two Kerbals during a mission.

Usage

Usually placed at the top of the rocket, the Mk2 Command Pod provides all functionality of a command module.

The Mk2 Command Pod features a tiny radial size node on top, typically used for attaching a Mk16 Parachute, and a medium radial size node on the bottom. The pod's crew hatch is outfitted with a small window through which an occupying Kerbal can look out during IVA.

New players (or those new to Making History) should note that unlike the Mk1 Command Pod and the Mk1-3 Command Pod the Mk2 does not have Monopropellant Tanks.

Product description

Twin-seater for when a single Kerbal feels too lonely.
