Engines are a type of equipment in Steambirds Alliance. When equipped, engines enhance one of 3 stats: Armor Self-Repair rate, Steam Recharge rate, or Gun Damage.

Tip: Carrying an extra engine in one's inventory and swapping to it via hotkey allows attentive players to quickly adapt to changing circumstances. Most aircraft will use a Damage Engine as their default, but can benefit from having at least one other engine available.

  • Swap to a Steam Recharge Engine if you're heavily dependent on your Secondary, like Medic or Engineer.
  • Swap to an Armor Self-Repair Engine if you're tanking bullets as Hog, or just to boost your own survival.

Engines also have their own class of Pilot Skills, listed here.
