Thrusters are one of the most important items when it comes to building SV, HV and CV. They are used to move the vessel in the direction they are pointing. So you you would need two per dimension.(forward and backwards) HV uses 2 dimension while the other uses 3.
There are several different thrusters that you can make to each type of vessel. Their specs are listed below, as well as relevant measurements in efficiency.
