Can you use the same premium crew in 2 (or more) regular tanks?

Nope.

You've got it backwards.

 

You can use a crew from an earned tank in multiple Premium tanks.

As long as they are of the same nation and class.

 

Never purchase a crew for a Premium tank.

If the Premium tank comes with a special crew, a zero skill BIA crew for example, then its best to retrain that crew for an earned tank you already have for that nation. If you don't have one yet, earn one.

For example you buy the Crommie B, it comes with a zero skill BIA crew.

Its then a good idea to grind the earned Crommie (if you don't already have it) and retrain the B crew to the earned Crommie.

Then that crew can use both the Crommie B and the earned Crommie.

This means more potential XP earned every day you play that crew, as you have multiple x2/x3/x5. :honoring:

To state it in other words, crews from tech tree tanks can drive that tank and any premium of the same nation and class.  There is zero reason to have a crew trained to a premium tank as they will only be able to work fully on that tank, then.

No - short answer.

 

You can use a regular crew of the same class tank in a premium without penalty.  NOT the other way around.

 

Premium crews (or regular crews) put into a regular tank that they are not trained for take a penalty to competency and earnings. 

 

The penalty is worse if it's a different class tank.

 

Details here.  You'll have to scroll down a bit.

Thanks for the explanation, guys.  You have helped me understand crews and their dispersal better than I did.
