Hello! I was thinking about which skills that are usefull for my light tank crews. I was then wondering if the concealment skill makes the light tank harder to spot even when it is moving, since LTs keep their concealment vallues while moving? Or is ceoncealment only active when stationary? 

 

Thanks in advance for any answers.

Always. It only drops when shooting, you can see the values in your garage. The skill is just a bonus to this value, and yes, it's a very good skill for lights (and also meds)

Camo net is only active when stationary. The camo skills works regardless. Even when you fire on the move. If you go to the comparison tool in the garage and select the camo skill, it will list the changes to your tanks concealment % on the right side when moving etc.

 

My 416 med has 6.24 when firing on the move, it gets 3.67 if I fire on the move with no camo skills on the crew.

In light tanks 2 things are a must: Full camo skill and Camo paint (you can rent it for 100 battles for 75k). This will mean 440m view range tanks may not spot you untill 300 or even less when you are completely in the open and moving.

Sort of essential and with lights cammo is the same static & on the move.
Cammo skill is the average for each member so 4 crew skill with 1 100% only equals 25% all 4 with 100% = 100%.
Lights prob need most skills as view range of recon & situ aware + the almost essential 6th sense.
Guns are often a bit lack lustre and BOI & Vents with smooth ride & snapshot can help boost with a whole rake of other slight increases.
Repairs is also nice as sometimes you might get away with being tracked.
Some when circling need anything extra you can get with clutch breaking.
Offroad as any speed increase is nice.
Lols so top scouts like nice crews but 1st & 2nd skills maybe camo & view with 6th sense with Situ Aware being 3% & Recon 2%
Then you have the rest
You might decide ultra passive bush hopper of net & binnocs or more active with optics and use the net slot for something else like vert stabs / rammer / vents
Also external cammo added is only 3% but more is better

Camouflage skill for all crew members for sure, also recon (commander skill) and situational awareness (radio oper.) are goodd skills.

Yes the camo on the lights is the same either if u r stationary or moving.

You have to improve those two values in light tanks, concealment and view range.

And whatever you do when you have all your camo sorted out is don't shoot as a very realistic arrow tells your victim where you are.

Better late than never compared to 40k 100 wn8 tomatoes who don't want to improve and therefore never ask for advice. 

I got through maybe 10k games without relying on 6th sense. Still reached over 52% wr and got positive stats.

Heh, my first 5k+ battles I used to dismiss my crew after "completing" a tank :teethhappy:
