Large Atmospheric Thruster
Large Atmospheric Thrusters are powered ``Thrust```blocks that only work while they're in an atmosphere of a planet (not any atmosphere in general such as a pressurized room outside a planetary influence). Their effectiveness is proportional to the "thickness" of the atmosphere they're operating in, being completely ineffective in Space. It moves a ship (grid) in the opposite direction of the exhaust point. The Large Atmospheric Thrusters are more efficient than Small Atmospheric Thrusters, but they're costly up front, and heavier.
- For more information on all thrusters and their mechanics, see Thruster.
Thrusters are used to move a ship (grid) in a specific direction, and also used to stabilize it's position with Inertial dampeners. In order for a grid to be entirely stable, thrusters must be pointed towards the front, back, left, right, top, and bottom of the grid.
Large Atmospheric Thrusters don't require any type of fuel other than energy sources such as a Large Reactor in order to function. They can run on any amount of power, however their full potential can only be used with larger amounts of power.
Full build cost for a Large Atmospheric Thruster is : 5 496 iron ingots, 24 cobalt ingots, 780 nickel ingots.
