Thrust rating

Thrust rating (TR) is the strength of a thruster. The ratings are on a scale from TR1 to TR13. Higher thrust rating means a more powerful thruster. Not all similiarly rated thrusters are made equal, however. A thruster made by a better manufacturer will be better than a poorer, cheaper made thruster even though it has the same rating. Thrust ratings are also not relative to each other. For example, a TR2 thruster may only be slightly stronger than a TR1 thruster as they are generally used as maneuvering thursters on smaller ships, but a TR7 could be many times stronger than a TR6 as thrusters rated higher than 6 are generally used as main thrusters on much larger ships. Note that stock engines do not always have the maximum possible thrust rating.[1]

TR1

Weak thrusters, commonly used as maneuvering thrusters in lighter ships.

TR2

Stronger than TR1, these are used to maneuver heavier ships and power light ships.

TR3

These serve as the main thrusters for light ships and as maneuvering thrusters on heavy ships.

TR4

These serve as main propulsion for mid-weight ships or fast, light ships.

TR5

Used individually in medium-sized ships or en masse in heavier ships for main thrusters.

TR6

Very heavy-duty thruster used to maneuver carriers.

TR7

Super duper heavy-duty thruster used to maneuver carriers.

TR8

Powerful heavy-duty thruster used to maneuver big cargos.[2]

TR10

Powerful heavy-duty thruster used to maneuver bigger cargos.[3]

TR13

Powerful heavy-duty thruster used to maneuver even bigger cargos.[4]
