Hello all!

Well I knuckled under and used up some old gift cards with small balances to buy the Lowe thru the festival discount.

 

Now I'm looking for your opinion on the best way to outfit the tanks equipment and crew.  This will become my German Heavy crew trainer, but not yet.

 

Opinions, suggestions? Thanks in advance!

As for the equipment I'd suggest getting the following:

  • Rammer
  • Vertical Stabilizer
  • Ventilation

Or you could switch the Vents for Coated Optics, the Lowe got 400 default view range so you would benefit from it however since it's a HT the camo won't stand up, so Vents are much better IMO.

For the crew I'd go like this:

1)Train everyone for repairs and then drop for Sixth Sense & Safe Stowage

2)Then train Smooth Ride/Offroad driving and Snapshot and Situational awareness and camo

3)Once you reach second skill drop it for Brothers In Arms and train above mentioned again ^

4)After that is done pick whatever you feel like you might like

Thanks much, but still working on understanding crew skills.  What do you mean by, "then drop.."?  Are those skills which you can increase level on after acquiring, but you pause and switch to obtain a different skill?

Basically, certain perks won't come to effect unless they are at 100% for instance the Sixth Sense. Thus you start training skills that take effect immediately such as repairs or camo. Once you reach 100% in repairs you can press this button:

 

To reset your skills while loosing tiny bit of progress however at certain point you can reset and get the skill to 100% and instantly work and select next one to train(aka dropping for certain skills). So you basically train repairs. Once at 100% and some extra % you can reset and select Sixth Sense which will come at 100% and work instantly and then continue on.

Everybody(!) agrees with Sunes' opinion(well thought out by the way),  any other setups or suggestions out there?

I'm loving this tank, I stink with it so far, but love it.
