Engineering technology unlocks radar, nuclear weapons, jet and rocket engines, and improves research speed, encryption, decryption, and rocket artillery attack.

Technology[edit]

Engineering technology is separate from industrial technology, meaning the player must hire an engineering design company such as the USA's General Electric (-10%) in order to get research bonuses for engineering technology research. A nation may also be offered political decisions, for example "Give refuge to German scientists (-3%)" or "Give refuge to Italian scientists (-3%)", that give a bonus to engineering technology research for a political power (PP) cost.
