I have been searching far and wide and cannot find WOT's official definition of Elite Status (for tanks).  Trying to figure out if Elite Status on a tank I level is exactly the same as a Premium Tank I buy with gold.

No.  It is not.  Elite allows you to focus all XP on the crew or use gold to move that XP to another tank, but it does not receive the bonuses in XP, gold earned or reduced repair costs that a premium tank sees.

Elite status does absolutely NOTHING for your tank except for one thing: It allows accelerated training. But given that they've nerfed accelerated training to the point that it's useless, it's worth nothing at all.

The only other benefit is this: If you spend money to buy gold to convert XP, ONLY XP from elite tanks can be converted.

Being Elite does absolutely NOTHING for the tanks income earning, battle performance or any other factor.

I appreciate the responses, but can anyone point me to an official definition?  All I have ever found are people's opinion on the matter (which are probably correct), but I would like to see it in writing.
Thanks!

They nerfed accelerated training?

WOT Why would you do such a thing???

Question, if they nerfed it how does it function now?

A tank is elited when every module and following vehicle is researched. In other words, there is nothing left to research from that tank with its accumulated experience points.

I'm sorry, not the definition OF Elite, but the BENEFITS from it.  That's what I'm asking about.

At about 1/5th the rate it used to.

Opinions?  Those are the facts as stated by players with experience in the game.  Reread my post and you will find that it is in fact in writing...my writing, which is all you need on the this topic.

Actually, it's in game. When you elite the tank, a window opens up telling you about accelerated crew training and ability to convert XP on the now elited tank. If you didn't bother to read it, elite another tank and it'll show you again. That is the only benefit you get.

I believe the repair costs on the elited tank are also reduced once it reaches that status.

From http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/Crew:
his is an option available only for Elite Tanks, i.e. fully researched or premium tanks. Selecting this option means that the tank will no longer accumulate research XP (the 5% bonus XP added to the Free Experience pool is unaffected). Instead, the crew member with the lowest total XP will receive twice the XP for the next battle that they would otherwise have received. If several crew members have equal values, the first one is chosen. The crew member who will next benefit from the bonus is indicated with the following icon left of his portrait in the garage view: AccelerateCrewTrainingIndiciator.png.

Because the bonus only goes to a single crew member each battle, the impact to crew advancement is bigger the smaller the crew is.
