OK, I now have 10 orders having completed (with honours) all the mission 15s for the Stug and HTC.

I'm now on mission 15 for two lines towards the T55a and the other 3 are on 8,12,13 (or something like that).

 

What I feel I should do is use all my orders straight away (to get the benefit immediately) and then try to get them back by actually completing the mission.

 

So I would complete 2 mission 15s (8 orders).  This will give me the primary prize plus the female crew member.  I'd then be able to focus on "improving" the missions that aren't with honours, including the two mission 15s that would give me 4 orders back each.

 

The remaining two I feel I should keep, rather than use them to skip a single mission.  That way if/when I complete the 4th mission 15 I'll have 4 orders and be able to skip the 5th one, get the T55a (I could really do with a German, medium crew trainer), get the girl and move on to the early/easier Obj 260 missions.

 

Is there any flaw in my logic or extra advice over anything I haven't considered ?

Thats what I did. Skipping missions 1/14 seems like a waste of orders when you should be able to get enough orders to just skip #15.

 

In the end I used two solo orders for two HT missions I didnt make on the Obj. 260, but that was just to get the cammo.

I'm debating skipping SPG-15/3...
It's unlocked, I'm just failing to do it.
I kinda want the orders for the Obj though, so debating whether I really want to 'waste' them on this.

If you're having a hard time to complete the T-55, I'd wait until being closer and then just finish it.

As a rule of thumb, the missions that were changed got easier primary and harder secondary, so in the long run you'll struggle to recover the orders.

I'd say however you see fit, yesterday I used them to finish HT-15 and SPG-15 for T55A, finished LT-15 second game I played in RU251, neat.

Probably to do the SPG-15 missions. I really can't be arsed to grind enough spg's to do them.

I'd wait til you get 3/5 of the T55a final missions done, and then use orders on the last 2, reasoning being you can't know for certain which ones will give you the most trouble completing.

 

Say you now waste 8 orders on a mission with relatively easy primary conditions but difficult secondaries. You then realize there's one mission that's really fricking hard to complete even the primary. Now you have to either do that really hard primary or an easy-ish primary but a really hard secondary. 

 

Now if you had waited you might have completed that easy-ish primary from the first mission on your own and you wouldn't have to trouble yourself with the secondary.

 

 

All this of course will flip upside down if you want to eventually get those orders for the Obj 260, then you'll want to do as many as possible with secondaries anyway.

well i had 12, used 8 of them for t55 and obj 260 spg missions, another 4 on t55 lt mission set for now, will do those light missions later, i just wanted to get another crew of 4 girls and t55a in garage, so i will get the orders back later(hopefully) and will see which missions or which other set of missions for obj 260 i will skip, cant be bothered with spg missions, did them on t28 and stug, just to get as many crew members possible. use them wisely, i used orders on lt missions for t55a cause i know that i will get them back and will be able to use them somewhere else for 260 missions. I mean if u skip a mission set that u wont be able to finish after + u get stuck with missions on other vehicle class u are kind of screwed :(

Well logic would say save them for the Obj260 missions but then I might not live that long (probably not got more than 50 years to go:P).

Yes, if you skip a mission with an order you can recover that order at a later date by going back and completing that mission with honours.

So do the arty missions from the previous campaigns, they're easy to do and if you complete the last mission with honours you'll get the 4 orders back.

Not exactly you need to finish all 15 missions with honour to get the 4 order back. If you finish spg mission with honor you only get 1 order.

I was thinking along the same line, but for the T28 HTC.

If you are pretty sure you can finish the skipped mission eventually with secondaries than it might help speed up and enjoy the rewards early. I have most light and heavy missions completed with honours for first two sets. The sooner I unlock T55 missions, the sooner light and heavy play will get me more missions done. Currently Im stuck with the start fire mission for mefium, just to much RNG involved as Im not a good or enthousiastic med player

Might be a good idea to save the orders if WG gets around to launching a new personal mission set. I've got a feeling why that isn't a priority - not to mention that back in my day we had no goshdarn pershonal misshionsh. It took close to three years after launch, we're closing in on four years with the same set. 

While I haven't finished them yet, I kind of hope for a new set; currently reached a point of stagnation where I kind of lack the tanks and willpower needed for certain missions.

Not exactly; you need to finish each SPG-15 mission with honours to get the 4 orders back for each one.  

If you finish a standard spg mission with honors that you skipped, you only get 1 order.

I used them on missions that I am sure I can handle, but the gain the reward already. Gained a lot of credits, so I was able to buy a tier 9 and also gain a few 1000 free xp to unlock stuff. I will see later on if they are useful to spend on hard missions.

Is the German tier 7 arty enough to do most missions for T55A (gonna assume StuG and T28C are easy in tier 7 jerman piggy)?
