The Protective Rocket Nose Cone Mk7 is a size 2 cap that fits in the front of a rocket.
This nose cone can be used to minimise the drag of a 2.5m stack when facing directly prograde, potentially making rockets more stable and improving fuel efficiency. Historically, before the major aerodynamics change in 1.0, this part was primarily of aesthetic value (although the reduced drag coefficient for nose cones in 0.22 did make it possible for them to provide some improved stability, at the cost of increased total drag). The new drag model has made them useful or even essential.
