For those of you who don't know, when you purchase a premium tank you already own, you get it's cost dumped back into your account as gold, and the crew in your barracks.

Not a particularly useful thing with normal Prem tanks, but for the Berlin Quartet and an increasing number of special Prems (Tiger 131, Thunderbolt...), that crew is extra special:

 

PS, is there a Mod that'll show which crew are 'Free BIA'?  If not well...somebody make such a mod please!

Thanks for the Sherman III tip, I have a Bromwell crew from the last sale sitting around with nothing to do and now they have a purpose, DERPing tier V instead of my KV-1s.

Yes.  Just have enough barrack slots.

So, I just purchased the Bromwell because I didn't want the other 3 tanks and I also needed the gold.  If I re-purchased it again:

 

1) How much gold do you get for the Cromwell B (on top of the packaged Gold)?

2) Must the new 5 man 0-Skill BIA Crew be Russian, or can I put them to use in another nation?

The Cromwell B is worth about 3500 gold if I recall and the crew will be British, just like the previous crew  Give that there's only one full line of British meds atm, plus the Matilda, Firefly...etc, unless you plan on either A) keeping multiple British meds or B) retraining them to a heavy or TD, there's not much point to having another crew.

This was a very good video.

Commentary was crisp which I enjoyed.

Oops, I meant British but I said Russian.  Thank you for your responses.  I love my Matilda but I'm not buying another Cromwell just to crew that tank up.  She will stay as she lay.

I do not see the video of which you speak.

It's embedded in the first post. Here is a direct link:

Liked the bonus Sherman III gameplay, have mine bought but haven't played it yet.

I did that once. Had 0 bunks left after buying the Quartet. Transfered 5 crewmen before Barracks showed 1 bunk open.

 

Didn't lose anyone, but not sure how long that grace period lasts so I've always made sure I have the room now.

Not a mod, but...

 

Most of my Toaster crew (including loader Markus Liedtke) are zero-point BIA. The other loader (Carsten Schretter) is not.

 

I can verify this in their Personal File, by trying to reset Skills/Perks.

 

Spoiler
