The directive for the concealment skill, called Natural Cover, does not work as you would expect from its description.

The drawing below is obviously an approximation and assumes crew level boosts, including Vents, BiA, Food, and the Commander's bonus for 4/5 crew members.

The "Expectation" chart is rather simple, concealment skill provides +75%, boosted to 97% by crew level boosts. Incomplete training reduces this effect linearly. The directive either simulates 100% or increases the concealment bonus by 10% (from +97% to +107%).

Where it get confusing is the "Current Reality". The moment you select the concealment skill for a member, things like Food provide a set bonus that assumes that member has the skill trained to 100%. In other words, crew level boosts increase the height of the black line (anywhere to the right of 0%) rather than increasing its slope, as you would expect. Natural Cover totally ignores crew level boosts until it intersects the black line, where it matches it until a seemingly random point where it goes 10% above the black line.

Edit: This was tested on the 1.7 common test server using the in-garage statistics, but I suspect it's the same on the live server.

I suspect other directives for crew skills have similar issues, but not necessarily exactly the same. For example, Combat Course does not always grant an effect equal to having Clutch Braking fully trained, this can be observed in the in-game vehicle comparison.
