Someone else noticed, that the 2nd engine on this tank  doesn't give you any atvantage??? It's simply 10 kilos lighter, that's all... Engine horse power any fire chance are the same


...


wtf?


Some guns/engines on other vehicles in the chinese tree are also not worth it, just check it out.

Hey... Those 10kg really matter! It makes your tank 0,000001% more manouverable.

WG is using excuses to spend free xp , prolong grind . Just take a look at the selection of guns for high tiers . You literally work your ass off to get guns with 5 more pen or so

Also have seen that, one friend has this problem at tier 9 medium, it's just crazy expensive - it makes me think of the old lorraine 40t which i had to fully equip... now my spent exp are gone!

The engine is actually worth it, the dumb thing is, the stat that it improves is hidden. It has 2 times more module HP than the stock one, so less chance of it being knocked out or you can run a speed governor longer on it before it breaks down. For a light that is quite important, since if you stop when you don't intend it, you are preety much dead.

Allmost correct :Smile_trollface-3: Made some digging and found a tool that reads WoT XML files (here) and found out that:

12150L Hidden stats:
  <maxHealth> 190 </maxHealth>
  <maxRegenHealth> 95 </maxRegenHealth>
  <repairCost> 7 </repairCost>

8V135 Hidden stats:
  <maxHealth> 360 </maxHealth>
  <maxRegenHealth> 180 </maxRegenHealth>
  <repairCost> 10 </repairCost>

So it has allmost 2 times more HitPoints, but is considerably slower to repair. These are actual game file values. Also the horsepower value is confirmed: not bugged, it's intentional.
