Not sure what would happen if you don't have enough 'bunks' there so make sure you have the space for them.

 

They will go in the barracks even if you don't have space.

ISU-122S is on current Military parade offer so I am sure Cromwell B (and Rudy) will be on sale also during May.

Though everyone who does not own Cromwell B (nicknamed Bromwell) please aknowledge Cromwell B is  in theory  powerfull tank but not easy to play in a way to deliver good performance in sigle play. It requires sharp quick decisions and reflexes, for some reason I am terrible in it.

 

But its BIA crew value is great,  and its very very popular in Clan battles,and powerfull in platoons.

Well it has all the same pros and cons of the regular Cromwell unsurprisingly (I'm not that good at either) :D

​Cromwell B carry me to fly over the battlefield using its magnificant speed and response , which brings me frequently to quickly in front some big fat guns which tear it apart.

On the other hand sniping in Bromwell means,well a sniping with a tank that in some circumstances reaches  around 70 km /h  and its very difficult to restrain from charge in such tank. Its  just like driving Ferrari slowly like a missionary. But its paper tank and because of rush I came into trouble. 

 

In Clan wars and in well coordinated platoons (not" just like that " ad hoc platoons) it works like a pack of Velociraptor dinosurs from Jurassic park film.

 

Peculiar tank, spice it is no doubt whatsoever I am proud to have it.

I'm sure I heard/read that the BIA on the thundy is going to be counted as a first skill. Feel free to correct me.

Haven't heard anything myself so I can not comment on that at all. Still getting a extra one skill US crew can't hurt.

Try it with BIA, vents, food, 105 oil and off road driving.

 

132% driver with the extra engine power and reduced resistance offroad makes it go like sh*t off a shovel.

For extra comedy being 100% trained on controlled impact means you can hunt light tanks by just crashing into them (yes its silly, but its also great fun)

The reviews I've seen so far suggest this may be a bug and that it will/should be a zero skill BIA crew. It is far too coincidental that WG start to release the Berlin tanks again where the only missing nation is the USA and lo and behold the Thunderbolt is about to be released as well.

It it appears a few times each year, usually during tank fest and Xmas. So you will get your hands on it for sure soon enough.

Not 100% the same, not even visually. The gun barrel is even shorter. Other then that it's minor differences in ground resistances, hull traverse and the B has 21m shorter radio range for some reason.

iirc the B has the better ground resistance. And the Cromwell has the better traverse. So in a straight line the B will get there first.

They usually appear a week or two at the most when QB reviews a tank that's not for sale. As he has an embargo to follow that lifts shortly before it's on sale.

I can't remember what I did with my Cromwell B crew, I don't have any UK crews with BIA on them.....

 

Maybe I accidentally dismissed them?

​Yes I did also had nerve breakdown after Crusader 9.18 quillotine, selled Crusader and disbanded  4 skill crew members with  it my hands were shaking from frustration what they did to Crusader , now I want to play Covenater, maybe would buy Crommie, get Gold and that BIA crew, train them in Mk VIC light I still have.

Light Vic is fun, but no fast crew trainer. I used my UK prem meds to train my current Crusader crew when it was a light. As it's faster with 6 daily runs there vs one in the Vic. And then convert them to a light crew later. Just as my new German light crew is trained in my German prem meds. As not gonna get there fast in a Pz II D vs 6 premium German meds.

Sadly on this version no - reset skills you lose BiA.

 

 

As Baldrick says on the Berlin crews you never lose BiA on a reset. It also is an 'invisible' skill so your next skill is treated as your first and accumulates faster than a normal second skill would.

 

OK.  I'm pretty sure the Tier VI Swedish premium autoloader  crew came with BIA but it was as an actual not zero rated skill.  Nice but nowhere near as good as having that Berlin style BIA.  In fact it seemed to take ages to get 6th sense running.
