A clan mate and I were able to get our first Brothers in Arms medals a day ago. I guess that's cool to have, but I fully expect to get a few more of them in short order... much easier to do with a platoon of two than three though.

That is incredible. I mean, I've had the odd 10 or 11 kill game solo a few times, but can't imagine killing 13 of 15 with a platoon mate... it would be so rare to both have one of those games and to be in a platoon. I can only imagine doing it in something like tier 2 or 3 tanks, too.

I run the Stug this morning for a bit before work. I got around 40k silver for one battle! Good thing it's paying good as I dumped the M26 last night, got the Patton, transferred my 200+% crew (retrained to 90%) and upgraded what I could with my xp, and transferred my vents and rammer. I have the top 90mm, but not the 105. I'm down one engine size too. So far I like it wayyyyyy better than the M26. It's quicker and faster and I can zip around the map more than I could with the M26. I got behind a KV4 and a T34 and pumped rounds into them, destroyed a Type 59 got behind a T95 and hit him than went arty hunting, got a shot into an S51 and he returned fire destroying me. I still made like 2k silver

at different points finished a few different tank lines over a few different accounts. just started back here & there and playing 8.0. working on finishing light french tanks. up to the AMX-90. french light tanks are much harder to play with physics thats for damn sure LoL!

I'm liking the Patton. I still need 55k xp for the 105 though

I'm running vents and rammer and I swap out a camo net for every battle. Loaders at 100% the rest of the crew is at 93% small repair kit, first aid kit, and fire extinguisher.

Commander has Mentor 100% and recon 60%
Gunner has Dead Eye at 100% and snap shot at 51%
Driver has smooth ride at 94%
Radio has situational awareness at 94%
loader has repairs at 57%, he started over as I had misunderstood brothers in arms and retrained him.

Any suggestions from the professionals?

Looks good to me.
I suppose it had better. It is almost exactly how I have my crew set up. I'm on 2nd skill(88%) for everyone so my last 3 have
Smooth ride/Clutch Braking
Situational Awareness/Repairs
Adrenaline Rush/Repairs

Commander and gunner are the same as you.

I run the rammer, stabalizer, and gun laying drive. If I'm not sniping, I prefer to have a good chance at getting a hit on a drive by. I've been toying with the idea of swapping the stabalizer for the vent class. haven't decided.

Best think you did was not run it bone stock. The 105 is worth the grind.

Whenever the 1/2 skill reset comes up,
I reset the all my commanders with Mentor as the last skill, utilize the 100% for something else that require 100% to take effect.

6th sense or Recon at 100% serves better than Mentor.

Personally, I don't consider Adrenaline rush all that useful, Safe stowage or other basis skills (camo, repair, etc..) would be better picks than Adrenaline rush or Intuition.

I've never been too sure about Adrenaline rush either. I may switch it, but I haven't decided yet.
I may move mentor to #2. I've done it on some of my other tanks. Mostly I haven't decided what I want in it's place. Also, I've only got enough gold for 1 more reset and I'm not buying any more for another month.
