If you don't know what to do with them, you don't deserve them :)

Since BiA is unified, it usually makes the most sense to put a girl as the commander and possibly the driver (depending a bit on the tank); the idea is that you pick one or two crew members that both have multiple useful skills.

 

It takes ages to train a regular crew member to finish their fourth skill; way less for a girl to do the same. For instance, my Chinese medium crew has started their fifth skill after over 1500 battles, including a ton in premium tanks with acc. training on. The Swedish girl crew we got last Christmas finished after about 500.

Part of it is due to performing better and boosters - but girls makes a difference regardless.
The reason for this is that each skill takes twice the experience of the previous one to train, and the girls (+"Berlin" crew that comes with Rudy, Cromwell B, IS-2, ISU-122S and Tiger 131) get the first skill as a 'zero'-skill, i.e. the second skill they train is counted XP-wise as the first one (which also happens to come pre-trained for free). In practice, this means that a girl crew member needs 1,260,384 experience to finish their fourth skill. The regular crewmen needs ~3,150,000 for the same.

 

On some tanks it might make sense to make a full girl crew, e.g. if you have a favourite premium tank that uses that kind of crew and/or they're on a (medium/light/TD) tank with the loader as the radio operator BiA+Camo+Repairs+Safe Stow.+Sit.Aw. are all rather useful on a medium tank, for instance, while on a heavy tank there's usually no real point in picking camo skills - and sometimes not even Sit. Aw. Even on a medium tank, the gunner is typically the one with the least amount of useful skills. On a med, you might want BiA+Camo+Repairs+Snap Shot. Deadeye is of questionable use, and armorer isn't particularly useful on most tanks (and you've got a rechargeable repair kit to deal with it).

@qpranger 

Oh but i know what i want with girls, i want to put them in tank where they will be most effective so let me rephrase question, did anyone play t-20 or bc12t are they worth investing girls in them, how good are they tier for tier, are tanks that come after them maybe worth girls ? ty :)

 

@Aikl

Batchat 12t is not really worth it. Might not be a terrible idea to train them before putting them into the Batchat/AMX 30, if you're going down that line. Obviously they'll start at 80% when you retrain them for credits, but a superior option to starting a fresh crew on a T9 tank. The 80-100% base skill is a rather quick grind.

 

T20 is not a bad pick; while the Pershing isn't great, the M46 and M48 are nice tanks.

 

In the end it depends what tanks you actually want, but you get a rather nice boost simply from two girls per tank. I'd say commander and driver in two tanks are a decently good choice.

 

(If you're going for diversity, the Centurion AX and M48 are sort of the same breed. While counter-intuitive, the CAX is more like the T20 than the M48 is.)

I just put them anywhere where I have worse crews than what they can immediately offer. Sometimes only as commander, doesn't really matter what nation or vehicle class.

Helps with even the worst stock grind.

i wasn't sure what to do either, but seeing as you get four free girls I figured I'd have a go at the Chinese TD line which needs four crew and thankfully doesn't bugger around with the crew composition/skills down the line.

Since they changed the rules about BiA and SoS (and never bothered to give a leveled playing field), this is what you should do:

 

Girls should mostly be picked as commanders for tanks you plan on using for some sort of competition, mostly tier 10, occasionally tier 8.

In special cases, LT and MT tanks, they can also be recruited as drivers.

Put them in the tank line, you are will most likely play a lot. At least, that's what I would do. It does not matter, if you are aiming for the patton or batchat 25t. Both are decent tanks. The batchat is still used as scout/medium in clan battles, that patton not so much in the moment. As you do play some french tanks, I would go with the batchat line.

 

Or you could do what Pansenmann said, use the girls as commanders for your grind tank to get a free 6th sense for each girl. This would make a grind much more pleasant, but you won't get those super crews, you could get with a all female/berlin crew.

well. depends. First and foremost i would (and have) put them in a line that i'm grinding so they rack up XP. I mean, you could put them in your favorite tier10 but it's going to take ages for them to skill up that way.
