The Tail Connector B is a part introduced in version 1.0. As the description suggests, it is a simple variation of the Tail Connector A. This is a part with only one node connector meant to attach to the tail of an aircraft. Its purposes are aerodynamic and structural. This variant provides more ground clearance during take-off.
This part is used for the tail of a plane usually. It adds to the craft's mass, but decreases the drag, making it a good place for tail fins and winglets on planes designed without a centerline engine, such as on the wings. Of course this part can't store any fuels so fuel tanks are required nevertheless.
It can also be used for connecting 1.25m diameter engines (such as the LV-T30 Liquid Fuel Engine) radially on a fuel tank when the attachment node is rotated to face downwards, where engines are placed.
