So.  While this weekends crew retraining/reskillng discount is on.

I decided to try to find out,  what the extra crew member that will be required for the Badger will be?

Not easy info to find! 

Obviously I looked at the Tortoise & deduced that it was probably a radio operator. 

But due to WG's twisted way of manipulating stuff, I refused to stop there. 

After quite a bit of searching I eventually found a screenshot from a super tester that showed the crew. 

Confirming it is the radio operator! 

 

Thankfully I have a radio operator with 3 skills in my Tog that I will use. 

But as it took me a while to find out that the info. 

I just thought to share it! 

 

Cheers & good luck!

Thanks. I still have the Tortoise radio operator in my garage. He will go in the Badger now. :)

Same as tortoise

 

It surprised me how hard it was to find out.

It was quite  a blurred image from a russian tester. But it was certainly clear enough to see the radio operators head phone symbol.

Here is a link. Click on the image top left.

It is all in Russian.

But the crew symbols are clear to see.

Like death and taxes a Tortoise Radio Operator is inevitable.

I have question about those new Frenchi heavies...

planned to buy amx 30 for my soul, but will send crew to amx m4 45 and grind xp...

I found that tier8 amx 65t has  4 crew members, but, which one?

 

Loader or radio operator?

 

edit:

tier8 4 crew, but tier9 and 10 have 5 crew members?
I hope, there is no double loaders or something like that...
Anyone knows more?

Yep, radio operator.

 

What I'm the most interested is the gun.

 

272 pen

420 dmg

8,81 shots per minute (without rammer & bia)

0.29 precision

 

Nice...

Tier 9/10 has the same crew layout as the M4 49 Liberte.

Image links you to a youtube video, and there's nothing blurry about it

Those are old stats.

 

Pen is same

alpha is 480

Reload 8,1

 

So worse dpm. 3556,8 to be exact. 

 

Armour is now 355 on the front, before it was 304.

The initial image I found was blury.

When I thought to show the link I realised there was much more to it.

Is it that important?...

It was just a courtesy. 

As I thought people would appreciate seeing it first hand...

Have not seen this before,

Did they improve anything else other than that band? (rest of the ufp or lfp)

 

As a swap of dpm for a  band of ott armour really does not look like a great trade off. Especially as it was good enough to begin with.

 

The radio operator slot will give my spare AT line/AT-15a radio operator a proper home. So no complaints from me but i expect it will annoy some.

Yeah, because radio operator is the best job for a female crew member, the skills are so many and so critical..

You can always retrain her for something else later and it will keep BiA intact.
