    What is a drop-down thruster?


    When reading a repair specification, I came across the word "drop-down thruster".

    Can you help me?

    What I know is that an ordinary thruster is a device that is installed either aft or fore and its purpose is to improve maneuverability of a ship.

    Thank you.

    Re: What is a drop-down thruster?

    It's a retractable thruster - instead of being underneath the ship at a fixed position, and thus providing movement in only two directions (forward and reverse), a drop down thruster can be lowered down at various headings, giving you 360 degree thrust.
