What did everything use for propellant in G-Reco?

Why do people like you continue to post on this board despite how many times you've proven that you don't belong here?
Pretty sure the mobile suits didn't use Minovsky reactors, as that shit was considered taboo.
Most places used photon batteries for power, and were banned from reverse-engineering the allowance they were given, that was the entire issue with the stranglehold the Capital had over the rest of the nations.
But in the first freaking episode they talk about the Minovsky Magnet Ray Field around the tower, the tower cars clearly are using it, and suits that pass outside certain range of it start falling. So yes, minovsky propulsion is still a thing.
Photons do work for propulsion, but they're horribly inefficient. We're talking about consuming 300 megawatts per Newton of thrust. So either it's some other technology that gets called "photon thrusters" for some technical reason, the mobile suits have terrifyingly powerful energy sources, or the writers have no idea how science works. I'm guessing it's the third one.
I can only suspend my disbelief so much. Believing that the giant robot is a practical combat platform is one thing. Believing that the giant robot's thrusters output enough energy to destroy small countries is another thing entirely.
A special propellant funneled through special systems in the special giant robot that fights in spaces filled with special particles that conveniently make any conventional or even semi-realistic weapon useless.
Just like they always have in UC, for the past 36 years.

Water doesn't compress.
Even if you were to push the water molecules together. They would just stop moving and lose energy, becoming cold. Which would cause them to turn solid and expand.
They could be using the same principles that nuclear rockets and jets operate by. Pass your propellant trough a heat exchanger from the reactor. The heat causes the gas to expand rapidly and escape from the thruster nozzle, pushing the engine along. It's not know for power, but it is supposed to be rather efficient. Efficiency improves as the temperature differential gets higher between the stored fuel and expelled fuel
>So yes, minovsky propulsion is still a thing.
not for mobile suits. That's why "suits that pass outside a certain range of it start falling":
the minovsky field described in ep1 is strictly for capital tower itself.
This just reminds that before the show Tomino talked about there being an ocean in space between the Earth and Venus or something like that, because people found that they needed that visual to ground themselves even when living in space. I'm disappointed we really got nothing out of that, because the concept of a huge pool of water just floating in space makes a pretty fantastic visual.
