The Ram Air Intake is an air intake for jet engines originally developed for the C7 Spaceplane pack, and has become a stock part since 0.15.0 and the introduction of the Spaceplane complex.

The Ram Air Intake takes in slightly more air than the Circular Intake but the Shock Cone Intake takes in even more air.
