I've read here that you can transfer a crew from similar classes and they keep their current level. (amer. medium to higher tier amer. medium.)

But when I moved my 66% crew from an M2 to an M4 Sherman, their percentage was shown in red and never increased again in any subsequent matches they were in in their new tank.

Will they never increase levels anymore without spending cash?

Does the red highlighted percentage mean they really are not operating at 66% but something far less meaning the new 50% crew the tank came with would have amounted to about the same skill level?

Thanks.

You have to retrain the crew for your current tank. And they will lose some of their skill percentage, iir how much though (maybe lowering to a max of 15%, but will not put their skill lower than 50%)

Yeah the red means they aren't trained for that tank and get like a 25% penalty. You have to retrain them for the tank they are using now, if you use the training that cost credits they will gain 75% or more if their % was originally higher then 75%. If you use the free training they will drop to the default 50%.

Every time you move to a new tank the crew gets -10%. If they move to a different type of tank, say a light to a medium they lose an extra 10% skill. I've not tested it but someone told me that if you skip a tier then you lose an extra 10% crew skill.

So if you had a ton of free XP and went from a p4 with 100% crew to a tiger tank your crew would lose 30% skill if you paid for the 75% training, or -40% if you went for the free option.

Don't they keep their added skills after 100%?

Yes, they do.
