Fritzblitzer posted a topic in GameplayTL;DR: PM2 DOES help at all speeds, WHEN YOU CHANGE THE THROTTLE. I set out to disprove this post on the NA forums: http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/87597-propulsion-mod-2-precise-effects/page__hl__propulsion__fromsearch__1 Because while that post seems thorough, it is wrong. PM2 DOES help at all speeds, contrary to the seemingly thorough test in that thread. I put my CL at half speed(17.4 knots), and then noted the time it took to get to 30 knots from 17.4 knots. With the upgrade, 15 seconds, without it well above 20. While this is known to those of us who use it a lot of players seem to think it is useless, according to the above link.In short, the upgrade allows the ship to adjust its speed to the setting on the speed meter faster, however, there are a few situations where it doesnt help. For example:If you have your speed set to full, and you do a sharp turn but keep the throttle at full, the ship will already be at "full" speed even when bleeding and the benefit isn't activated. Concerning deceleration: From 35 knots (full speed) to 17 knots (half speed), it takes 11-12 seconds with PM2. Without it, it takes the same amount of time or slightly more (hard to tell) BUT the weird thing I discovered is that the ship keeps decelerating to 16.3 knots without it, while it stops at 17 knots if you ahve it installed. To get down to 16.3 takes another second or so, and then the ship has to accelerate up to 17 knots half speed) again. Clearly, the PM2 makes the ship more responsive to speed changes, even decelerations although not nearly as much as when increasing the throttle. *edit* none of the above has anything to do with the engine boost it gives you below 6 knots, that is just a pure Horsepower boost unrelated to this post. (but very useful, too)
