I would never do this when I have a premium tank of the same nation and class. I know Smurf already shared the basic idea, but I want to provide a different perspective.
My T34 is currently operated by a T110E5 crew. I do not own
a T110E5. I manually trained them for the T110E5 at 90% and then used the T34 to get them back to 100% base skill. Now, when I finally buy the T110E5, I have a fully trained crew from match #1.
Edit: I've been waiting/hoping for a Churchill sale for the same reason. I have an IS-8 + near-perkless crew that I hate driving, and I'll be damned if I am training a crew in an IS-7 with that horrible repair cost.
