I am up to 70% of my 8th skill and get a lot of requests to list my skills in the order I took them so I decided to make a YouTube which shows my tank build for my 28.01.  I list my skills and discuss why I took some of them in the order i did, show my equipment and ammo load then take the tank out for a spin and get a Tier X battle in Erlenberg Standard mode.
(When i'm talking about camo paint, I only mention gold because I buy my paint scheme permanently but it should be noted that you make enough money with a 28.01, it can easily pay for temporary camo with credits and still be profitable.  So, if you don't have gold to spend, use silver and get camo schemes anyway!)

Most excellent pointers for fresh and older scout wannabees.

Tazillian' drive-by-derp with locked turret is going to be on my practice list when my crew gets back in the VK28.
You could take a look at pogs contour icons. they're great for checking out some armor thicknesses and enemy view ranges what you just cant recall.

Elaborating about the importance of mobility and hence having the rep kit on 5.
it is disturbing to see that the med kit resides on 6, which requires you to thumble 64 instead of 44 to establish mobilty again when the driver is killed.

70% of 8th skill congratz!

I checked them out long ago; never liked them.

I like my fire extinguisher on 4 where I can hit it fast.  I use the arrow keys to steer since I am left handed and use my left hand for my mouse.   It is very easy for me to hit 4 with my little finger while I drive and not have to stop driving.   I used to have fire extinguisher and med kits reversed (med on 4 and extinguisher on 6) and I prefer this setup better.
My set up should not disturb you - it is what I like.  You are free to put yours how you like!
