Hello! I just bought the KV1 and im searching for the right skills. From my little search around the forum ,i saw that Clutch Braking is handy on Driver for the KV1.
What about the rest of the crew? ( command,loader,radio op,gunner)

Are you going to keep the KV1 or sell it later and move the crew to some other heavy tank (KV3, IS, etc.) ?

One option is to get "Brothers in Arms" in every crew member, when everyone gets 100% they will improve by 5% meaning that with BiA and ventilations your crew will reach 121%.
Another option is to use:
Commander - Mentor
Gunner - Snap Shot
Loader - Safe stowage
Driver - Smooth Ride
Radio - Repair

You *might* want to train your crew for perks relevant for the KV-1S, IS or perhaps for the KV tree instead, as by the time you have 100% skill level you have probably moved your crew to the next tank in the line. Unless you chose to keep the KV-1 for creditfarming of course.

I am sure that i will keep KV1 for a long time. How do  i know this? When i play tanks i like,i make them elite. So it is almost certain that i will play many battles to make KV1 elite and to farm for the next tier. So i want skills that fits the kv1. When i reach next tier,i will deal with that later :P

You want repairs on any vehicle, even more so on one that is an arty magnet when standing still. Other skills/perks are nice but you need repairs otherwise a single little bugger can track you and you're helpless for long time while arty and other enemies have a go at you from huge distance where you can't even see them thanks to KV-1's poor view range (which typical of lower tier Soviet heavy tanks, by the way).

C: Sixth Sense - BIA - Recon/Repairs
G: Repairs - BIA - Snap Shot
D: Repairs - BIA - Clutch Braking (maybe worth to take CB first at the cost of repair time)
R: Repairs - BIA - Situational Awaraness
L: Repairs - BIA - ??? (not very useful skills, I'd probably go for Safe Stowage)
