General Fu is Head of PLA General Staff Department 1995–2002. Maybe his grandson is your gunner? :Smile_trollface-3:

American Tanks - Ryan Murphy
British Tanks - Ryan Murphy

American Tanks I usually have myself as commander and Abraham Lincoln as my gunner. :)

British Tanks also can use the name Sean Bean and there is a crew member that is the spitting image of him.

take (nation)_tankmen.mo , convert it to .po
poedit it and change names to whatever you like.
Convert back to .mo and put it in
C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\res_mods\0.7.5 ext\LC_MESSAGES

Change names to whatever you want, no restrictions.

You can find the originals textfiles in
C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\res \ text\LC_MESSAGES

http://www.poedit.net/ , best open source free program to edit .po and .mo files

Put the original .mo textfile in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Poedit\bin

open CMD and type in the underscored commands, you can autocomplete foldernames and filenames by pressing Tab.

This will have generated an in this case, usa_tankmen.po in the folder, which you can doubleclick and open and edit with poedit.
The rest is simple, you get a long list of names inside the program, hit ctrl-f and search for each individual tankmans current ingame name and change it to whatever you want, surname is a separate entry so two edits per "name". After you have edited everything and saved and exited poedit its time to convert it back to .mo

delete in this case usa_tankmen.mo from the bin folder and type in this next line

This will for some reason generate two files, one empty usa_tankmen.mo , and one messages.mo containing all the data. So rename the messages.mo to in this case to usa_tankmen.mo and put the edited file in
C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\res_mods\0.7.5 \ text\LC_MESSAGES

Well,

I noticed that it is possible to generate a german crew member named Albert Speer... Not sure it that's an easter egg or an oversight. :P
