I'm going to bite the bullet and buy it. And immediately sell the t34-85M I bough the year before the berlin-trio tanks were introduced. Because its obviously never going to get any of the buffs it desperately needs.

You get a german shepard to sit in the tank's 5th crew position in the garage. It's pretty much just an aesthetic feature. It's supposed to bark when you get detected (If you have 6th skill trained, of course), but it hasn't since pre-9.14

Does anyone know if we can buy it, sell it, then buy it again to get an extra BIA (0 skill) crew for other tanks?

Me too. I just started playing the T34-85M this week and it's not great, that's for sure.

If someone buys Rudy and does not want the dog, I will adopt the dog and rename him Rex. I need one cause one of my German drivers is blind nad needs a new service dog. TY

Yes, you can buy it more than once for additional crews. However, if you sell it before you buy the 2nd i believe you get the silver equivalent. Where if you buy a 2nd while you have one in your garage you get the gold.

I'd assume that if it was in the garage and I re-bough it, I'd get a gold equivalent, but not the crew.

Yea, who says you can't pay to win? Those crews are ridiculously good for someone who doesn't have tons of time to grind skills.. and lets face it, a skilled crew make a huge difference in performance. Unfortunately my piles of money are only so high so I'll restrict it to my own account unless you can find a way to earn me a T55-a and then I'll gift you whatever you like :)

If you buy it and keep it when you buy it a second time you'll get the gold value instead plus the second BIA crew.

The intro is wrong.

 

Dogs were not used as mascots.  At least not up until modern times.  Dogs were working animals, and "war dogs" which were trained to kill on command, chase down scouts, sniff out spies, and so on have been around for thousands of years.

 

The "cutesy fluffy" dog trend is a very recent trend when aristocrats wanted pets.  Recent as in we domesticated grey wolves 10,000 years ago.

i prolly should buy it as i will eventually go up the Russian med line and this will be a decent trainer and since this crew is already skilled it could be well more than worth it.

I have had the Rudy since the Berlin Quartet.
It is loads of fun, and a solid tank. 
HIGHLY recomened it to all.

 

Well worth the $$.

I have to think about it.  It would have been a no-brainer if they had done a 50% (or whatever) contribution to Pets For Vets or other charitable program in other NA country since they are bothering to do it for the K9 Veteran's Day.

Was about to buy it until I looked closely and found exactly that, they just release it on the Day and aren't making any charitable contributions to the Doges themselves. Kinda sneaky too IMO... Ended up buying the cheap one, damn Canadian dollar.

Right for those who are interested I can confirm:

 

Multiple purchase means you get 3,550 gold (if you have the tank in garage) and the extra BIA crew (minus the dog of course as it's attached to the tank and not an actual crew member that you can transfer) plus one garage slot. The tank is worth 715,000 credits if you try to sell it. So for $50.00 Canadian (38 USD) you get two 0 skill 100% BIA crews, 3550 gold, 2 slots, and one good premium tank. I may just buy another cause I have loads of Russian tanks in need of decent crews. It is a shame that they are not donating to charity though, I agree.
