While having a look at the tier IX and X Swedish TDs in the tech tree (nearing the UDES atm) I noticed that the radio is identical on both the Strv 103-0 and the Strv 103B. Same name (Ra 421); same characteristics (850m range, 27kg weight); same tier (X). Yet for some reason, unlocking the Strv 103B or Kranvagn doesn't automatically unlock the Ra 421 module on the Emils I & II, UDES and Strv 103-0? Why?

How would you know since you have neither tank?

 

The radio is indeed the same, and since you can unlock the radio on the Emil I or UDES before any of the others you will unlock it on all of them.  So that point is moot.

 

Justto prove a point I just unlocked the top radio on the UDES using free xp. It has unlocked on all the tanks which share it.

I believe this was an issue that has been corrected in a somewhat recent patch:

1) Because I can view it in the tech tree.

2) If it is the same, why is it not shared between all six vehicles instead of just the tier VIII and IX tanks?
3) That usually happens when tanks have a common module.

For the S1 I can understand that it's a separate module, since premium tanks are always standalones so as to prevent the unlocking of modules (and therefore the saving of - perhaps free - XP by expending money as an unfair advantage). But if module A on a standard tank is a carbon copy of module B on a tank in the same branch and class, and the modules even share the same name, it makes zero sense for those to be separate unlockable items on tier 8+9 tanks on one hand and tier 10 tanks on the other.

There's plenty of other nations which share guns between heavy and medium branches, whilst similar guns with slight deviations in characteristics need to be unlocked separately in their TD branches, and I can respect that, because those modules actually differ in characteristics and names.

What point did you want to prove, exactly?

If it was that you did not understand the question, job well done.

 

The question is why the tier X radio module doesn't unlock the lower tier radio modules in spite having the same stats and the same name.

Well the UDES 421 radio is the same on all the tier 8's and 9's. So basically, once you unlock that via the UDES, you get it for all the tier 8 and 9 HT's. The tier X one, even tho it's the same name is only shared between the tier X's and the Premium tier 8 TD, the S1. So if you unlock the tier X 103B. You already have the tier 8/9 radio for all if you elited them. So it won't unlock anything anyway. As the tier X is only shared via the tier X's.

 

Unless you wanted to grind the tier 8 and 9 with the middle radio... to save 9400 xp for what ever reason.
