  Um... nope.

  The Minovsky Drive uses the same kind of particle-acceleration
technology seen elsewhere in F91 and V Gundam (e.g. the F91's VSBRs, the
Zanneck's beam cannon). In this case, the drive emits Minovski particles
that have been electromagnetically acclerated to near-light speeds
(giving them huge mass and momentum). It's basically a relativistic ion drive.
