I've been wondering for a while now how I get a crew member to the rank of Major? Commanders will get to capt when the 3 secondary skill is maxed. Is there some way to start with a higher ranked crew than say Sgt?

I would imagine you would have a maxed crew if you went from T5 heavy all the way to T10.

Just a guess.

indeed you do :) but they would still only be Capt but not Major. Unless after maxing out the 3rd secondary you still gain exp?

Well, once your Crew Commander got promoted to Major, it would be time for him to get out of that tank and move onto a more prestigious command position.  Are you sure you want him to make Major? ;)

That is a very good point!

I want my crew to be nothing but Generals. Five star Generals, all bickering with one another over tactical maneuvers while corncob pipes wag from their dessicated lips.

All my crew are like the Private that Patton slapped, crying, shell shocked....

My crew is too drunk to notice something like rank.

higher tank tiers will have higher ranks, even with same qualifications (i.e. 100% w/ 3 maxed out secondary skills).

From the wiki:

As your crew gains experience they will be awarded with higher ranks, with every 50% experience is a new rank. If, when retraining, a crew member loses some competence he will not be demoted in rank. There are separate ranks for each nation. A crewman's rank also depends on his role.

So, I interpret that to mean that you could get your crew to high ranks by training them in many different tanks after you've got all three secondary skills (assuming those count for ranks). That way you earn them that 50% training in primary skills multiple times.

My Main crew Commander is at Rank Oberleutnant Posted Image, so 2 more ranks to go... I think I can still get the next 2 ranks if I stay in my Panther, or Panther-II when I get it... jut hope it doesnt mess my Crew Ranking up when the Panther I and II each go down a Tier in the next update...

Crew Rank info and Skills ect... ->>Tank Crew Info

Pardon my ignorance, but is there a bonus to having a higher ranked tanker, or is it just a 'vanity' thing?

Just vanity.

The numbers DO matter though.

@LordBerk;

Cool.  And yes, I mean rank titles.  I am well aware that the numbers signify a great deal... =D

Once your crew member reaches 100% of his primary skill, regardless of the tank, he gets promoted. From that on, at each 50% of the other skills he will get promoted. It doesn't matter how many times you do that, he will only get promoted for the first time he reaches such marks with his experience.

The devs are probably going to release new secondary skills sometime, so that skill will be enough to bump your crew to major.

Hint: sometimes on the loading screen in-game the tip of the match says something along the lines of "Not all qualifications are available to every crew member."
I'm assuming that there will be role-specific qualifications coming up, e.g. driver gets to use extra engine power, or...gunner decreases aim time, etc.

Question. If you train ur crew to 100% in say a vk3601, then xfer them to a tiger 2 to train (med to hvy) if you xfer them back to the vk will they be 100% again or retrain again.

Retrain again, unfortunately.
