What are blueprints?
Blueprints are special items that provide XP discounts on researching new vehicles.

If you collect all the blueprints for a tank, you'll be able to get a 100% XP discount for it - and therefore, unlock the tank.
However, the higher the tier - the more blueprint fragments you'll have to collect.
It should be noted that the XP discount is only for the research cost of the tank - not its modules.

Collect National and Universal Blueprints
Sometimes you can get a blueprint for a vehicle you've already researched.

These fragments can be combined to unlock new blueprint fragments for a tank of your choosing.
The quantities and ratios of both will vary depending on the tier of the vehicle.
