Hi Everyone  :Smile_Default:

I've been working with my M37 for a while now and I finally have about half the XP I need for the M7 Priest, XP is coming a little faster now that my entire crew is almost at 80% (my shots are much more accurate), my question is, should I research the upgraded radio, is it worth it? (I have all other modules researched, suspension, engine and upgraded cannon.)

I know doing so will make the M37 a premium SPG (then I could train it's crew to 100% much faster), but when I finally do get enough credits for the M7 Priest I wanted to train my M37 crew and use them with the priest, but when I look under one of the crew members personal profile under training with the SPG icon highlighted, the only vehicles are the T-57 and M37, does this mean I won't be able to use my M37 crew in the M7 Priest?

Thanks in advance,

Fasttrax

You need to research the M7 Priest first.

first, get the radio.  second, the M37 will not become premium.  Third, you can't train crew for m7 priest because you have not researched it yet.

So if I research all modules on the M37 it won't be a preimum SPG? I researched all modules on my T-46 and it became preimum, why not so for the M37?

Will it become Elite with all modules researched, or do all modules AND the M7 Priest have to be researched?

All modules AND the M7 Priest must be researched for it to become elite.

It didn't become premium it became elite. Premium vehicles offer double the credits and have half the repair cost compared to other vehicles of the same tier. Elite vehicles are normal vehicles, but you can build up xp on them to be converted into free xp with gold, or you can accelerate crew training, which gives the crew member with the lowest xp amount 2x the xp you earn in a battle, but you won't get xp on your tank in this way. Now for your topic, yes, get the radio first, you will need it to see the targets that your team lights up if they're really far away.

Elite is the word you are looking for.

You have to research everything including researching the tank above to elite a tank.
When you get the next spg up, and transfer your crew over you should be able to equip them on the new spg and click their name and train them for the new spg.

Thank you all!  :Smile_veryhappy:

Glad to hear that the radio is worth it, I'll research it now.

I understand now, I see that on my T-26 (sorry made a mistake, I have a T-26 not T-46) I have all modules and the T-46 researched, and that's why it's preimum, once again, thaks for the help guys!

And yes, once I have enough XP and credits to get the M7 Priest, I will buy it without its crew and transfer my M37 crew into it, then sell my M37, just glad to know that will work!

Thanks for the reply!
