Default Have we figured out how maneuver might work?

I confess, I've been reading Atomic Rocket lately. I regret doing so.

Disclaimer: I am not a gearhead. But, the gearheads do intimidate me, and they say that reactionless drives are a no-no.

So, maneuver drive isn't reactionless, is it? All those rocket nozzles in the backs of ships seem to suggest it.

And no, I don't think they're fusion rockets or high-energy plasma rockets. But they are emitting something that's not particularly destructive but still enough to warrant nozzles.

I do think maneuver drives are gravitic in nature, which means they push and pull against local gravity sources.

But that's as far as I've gotten.

Gravitic, with rocketlike emitters of some sort, but not a fusion/plasma torch.
