If you already have the tank, it's 300 gold for a full free BIA crew.

In the news it says: In case you already own the vehicle, purchasing either bundle will not give another crew.

This tank is a turd. Utterly powerless against tiers 8. BIA crew is its only asset.

I already owned Tiger 131 but crew was retrained to something else.  So I bought Tiger 131 for 300 gold and got BIA crew. I tried it second time and did not get another crew (but this time I still had crew trained for Tiger 131). So my guess is you can get BIA crew only when you do not have one in tank (trained for Thunderbolt in this case). Anyone able to try/confirm today? I will try but it will be late night

I like this tank :child:, but expensive to play. For silver making this is not the best one.:coin:

I think after the Tiger 131, they realized their mistake (that people can but multiple BIA crews for just 300 gold each), and a few days later (day 7) started writing the "In case you already own the vehicle, purchasing either bundle will not give another crew." 
So I am extremely skeptical that retraining the BIA crew for another vehicle still allows you to get more BIA crews for 300 gold. 
Please do let us know if it works for you..

I already had Thunderbolt in garage and I needed few american crews with BIA for my tanks, so I decided to purchase it again.

So I sold my old Thunderbolt and bought it again for gold. Got another BIA crew. "Mission completed! Reward: Recruits:" etc

Next I decided to see what will happen if I buy it again without selling old one. No BIA crew. Well, that was expected.

OK, I sold it again. And bought it again. And guess what? I got no BIA crew again.

And that was rip-off and against their own description.

"In case you already own the vehicle, purchasing either bundle will not give another crew." 

When I was buying Thunderbolt for a 3rd time, I already sold old one and wasn't owner of Thunderbolt at the moment of purchase.

And I got no BIA crew anyway.

I guess there is some bug in that "Mission completed", so you can get BIA crew buying this tank only once - no matter if you have or have not that tank in your garage.

Real bad programming and deception of customers as a result imho.

Nope, not for me. Anything under tier 7 that isn't a light tank isn't worth it.

Well if that’s how it’s going to be, no BIA crews for repeat purchases, then the advent calendar has no interest to me this year

Yep - mean-spirited in the extreme, especially in the 'season of giving'! C'mon WG, does it really kill you to let people buy extra crews this way??

I risked for the biscuit and purchased the in game bundle to check. Working as intended. Received BIA crew for 300 gold :teethhappy: I suppose this works only once (like with Tiger 131), so will not try again.
