The Probodobodyne HECS is an unmanned command module that runs on electricity.


Generally placed at the top of the rocket, the Probodobodyne HECS provides full command module functionality with a tiny connector on the top and bottom. This is a hexagonal command module available allowing three and six times symmetry instead of four and eight times.

The HECS is one of the few parts in Kerbal Space Program that is covered in multi-layer insulation.

Product description

The HECS core capabilities go far beyond its sleek, 6-sided futuristic casing. This probe core provides advanced guidance assistance technology, and comes fitted with internal reaction wheels and decently-sized batteries. Despite concerns that one day, autonomous spacecraft cores could become self-aware and turn against their creators, or even become very stubborn against opening pod bay doors, Probodobodyne insists that these unmanned AI-driven devices are the way of the future.
