Description

Allows for KSP1-Shuttle boosters to be successfully recovered.

A stock subassembly called Recoverable Booster Nosecone. Built with 13 of the finest parts, its root part is adapterSize2-Size1.

Built in KSP version 1.0.4.

Designed for my KSP1-Shuttle http://kerbalx.com/crafts/1923

Allows the shuttle’s LRBs to be successfully recovered intact in stock 1.03/1.04 aero. Hidden inside the nose cone are a trio of auto-deploying airbrakes that work as high speed drogue chutes to help safely slow the booster down during re-entry to ensure the landing chutes open safely.

Landing speed is around 16m/s.

Simply replace the KSP1-Shuttle’s boosters' stock nosecones with this subassembly, and you’ll be able to safely recover your boosters.

I may make this the stock version included with the shuttle in the next revision.
