The Orion Escape Tower is a fairing in the Orion assembly, and the largest escape tower in the game. The tower will prevent the Capsule from being destroyed in the event of a first stage failure. The part is both cosmetic and functional, and detaches when the first stage is jettisoned. the escape tower is not required to prevent the capsule from overheating as the capsule alone is aerodynamic enough to fly in a stable manner.
