Rover mk3 w/ in-line delivery package module

Need even more Rovers? Want to toss them from your vessel before touchdown for science? Well now you can! With the in-line delivery package. Designed to fit the Sr. underside ports of the Lander mk5 or Vall Hopper this disintegrating clam shell allows you to bring one more rover. Sr. docking ports on both ends allow carrying craft to retain connectivity.

The landers must drop the rover before touchdown, do not attempt landing with package intact. It’s recommended to drop the rover at a height where the debris will be destroyed on impact and the Rover’s wheels will soak the fall. This is about 40m above ground level on Vall, where the package was designed for.
When used with Lander mk5, side roll cage legs must be kept retracted or will be destroyed by engine wash.
Make sure the Rover’s light is facing the ground ladders of landing craft to ensure clam shell doesn’t strike ladder on deployment.
Rover probe cores and wheel disabled for transport, manual activation is recommended before deployment. Brakes off let rover roll out of impact zone automatically.
