The Mk3 to Mk2 Adapter provides fuel to jet engines attached beneath it. It also serves as an attachment point for wings, fins, and landing gear.

The MK3 To MK2 Adapter is a liquid fuel tank originally developed for the C7 Spaceplane pack, and has become a stock part since 0.15.0 and the introduction of the Spaceplane complex. It had a new model and texture in the 0.90 update when Mk3 parts were overhauled and resized.

Product description

Our engineers insisted on a way to reuse Mk2 parts on the new Fuselage system. Manufacturing a streamlined adapter despite the considerable difference of the two cross sections required quite a radical design. It is often used as a slide on Take Your Kids to Work Day.
