The Mk3 Cargo Ramp is a ramp for Mk3-sized cargo bays designed to allow transfer of cargo on and off a (space-)/aircraft. It is used on the Mallard.

Usage

Open ramp

The ramp's opening mechanic differs from that of standard cargo bays. "standard" types open on both sides, making stacking it on a rocket possible, and having a pair of doors in the side of the bay for cargo transfer. This part lowers a ramp making driving in and out of the cargo bay by a smaller rover possible.

To open and close the ramp, right-click the on the ramp, and push the Open/Close button. An action group can also can be used for this purpose; by employing the Toggle Ramp command, the doors can be opened and closed by a single keystroke. The opening angle can be tweaked by the bar of the DeployLimit ( - the number in the bar doesn't mean the angle in degree!). Use it carefully - the opening torque is not limited, and so the ramp can lift up or damage the whole craft.
