Description

Constructor mk

20px Atmospheric Thrusters can only operate in planets with atmospheres as the name implies. They are the most efficient source of thrust in an atmosphere. However, there main disadvantage is the futility of using them in space. If an Engineer should choose to build them on their vessel in space it is recommended that their power be switched off.

The Small Ship Large Thruster has less Thrust per Block as the Small Thruster. But there is a really high Energy aspect. For the Thrust of one Large Thruster you need 5.25 Small Thruster - we take 5. Now you need 2.4 MW for one Large Thruster and 3.5 MW for 5 Small Thruster. Feel free to build compact but keep in mind that it will take more Power.

* The Exhaust Destruction "Hit-Box" describes the region in which Blocks are damaged. (tested with Light- and Heavy Armor Blocks, result may differ depending on the Armor Value of the given Block)

** The Thrust Values are based at the override function of the Thruster and what is displayed there.

*** The Power Requirement is measured by placing a Reactor, Cockpit and one Thruster, then start override to maximum and read how much percent of the Reactor is used. I know this is not really accurate but i think the Values are still representative.
