Spoiler


 

Seriously, you probably did not have the final Rolls Royce Griffon engine researched prior to buying the Conqueror.

 

 

Did you know you can save the 45,000 experience and still elite the Conqueror by simply researching the FV215b which comes with that exact same engine? 

 

 

BOOM engine researched at the same time without spending 45,000 xp.  :justwait:

Also unlocked via  Cent 7/1

However, 95O vs 81O is quite a HP/T change. Use at own discretion.

More interesting, 81O middle engine, unlocked from Caern., is unlocked for free with Conq GC arty unlock, completing FV38O5

So potentially, basically you can unlock the Top British engines, for  O  exp cost.....

You do notice the HP/t difference in it. 45,000 is not that much all things considered at tier 9. I never regretted unlocking the engine.

Whenever grinding any upper tier tanks (7 thru10) you have to be smart about unlocking tracks, radios, guns and engines.  If you look at the info box for each item, you will often find crossover with other vehicles.  Sometimes key guns, radios and guns will/can be unlocked on tanks 1 or 2 up the line.  Tracks and turrets are unique to each tank.  There is nothing you can do about turrets, but you can postpone buying the tracks by using the silver equipment tracks to carry the weight load instead - with the added bonus that it will be harder to track that tank.

 

You can easily shave more than 200,000 XP off the grind and finish up those items later.  On a 250,000 On-Track grind that is a huge savings, especially when time constraints limit you.  Even saving 45,000 XP can be one day of playing for those that don't play 8-10 hours a day.  This holds true for the Conqueror grind too.  A little study work can save you a ton of grinding that can be finished at a later time.

Yes I did and didn't unlock it, did the same with the Foch because there's rarely much of a difference between each engine upgrade and I didn't really notice much when I got it.

Getting an extra 140hp is a useful upgrade. I doubt it's worth skipping. You can get this engine from the Centurion 7/1 or Conway too.

I did that without thinking, wanted to get to tier X as fast as possible.
