Description

Can lift 10 tons to safe distance.

The Emergency Launch Cone can be attached to the bow of any Kerbaled spacecraft and lift it to safety even from a launch pad failure. Proven to lift up to 10 tons to as high as 350 m and 7 tons to 650 m. Great for hard mode games where kerbals do not respawn and there is no quickreload. Design to integrate with a fairing. Other uses include:

  • Separation thrusting: can fire one or more of its series of engines to help separate from a discarded rocket stage.
  • Launch Assistance: can fire nearly all its engines to provided extra thrust and delta-v during orbital insertion.

A stock subassembly called ELC. Built with 27 of the finest parts, its root part is stackDecouplerMini.

Built in KSP version 1.2.9.
