That is correct. It is also what tends to happen when you have extra
independent (but weaker) engines mounted perpendicular to the main
As long as the maneuver thrusters and main drive pushes don't push the
ship in the same direction (which they can't if you can't rotate the
between the pushes), I don't see the fact that you accelerate faster if
you use both sets of engines at once as a problem. Neither in the game
nor in reality...
