    Its based on best training (100% crew) but not boosters like extra rations, chocolate and crates of coke or by modifications from equipment like rammers and vents.
    Viewrange is stock view range of the turret, this increases with better turrets. Equipment like binocs do change this value but not the one you see in the garage. Much like how the rammer affects RoF ingame but doesnt change its value in the garage.

    to reach shown view range you need commander to 100% , everything else bino / coated optics increase it above shown value. vents and chocolate and stuff like that do not infulance it afaik.
    In this world, is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? ... At least it is true that man has no control; even over his own will.

    How about experience earned for crew? Is it a log curve or something? I know its harder to go from 90-100% than from 0-50%.

    And how much of your experience per battle actually goes towards training the crew? Or is it a set amount per battle?

    assuming the wiki is up to date

    The in-game Tank Statistics (and those in the WIKI and other places) represent the maximum possible value; 100% crew, installed ventilation, rammer, chocolate/increased rations/cola, etc. It is common for us to think of those statistics as being those requiring only a 100% skilled crew, but it is more than just that. A tank you have in your garage will show the values of upgraded modules.
    http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/Battle_...ank_Statistics

    100% crew + Ventilation + Chocolate = 100%

    100% crew = 87.3%

    for crew skills



    Experience needed for the next level can be calculated by by multiplying the next level by 50, 100, 200, or 400 for primary, secondary 1, secondary 2, or secondary 3 skills respectively. For example to get from 68% to 69% in a primary skill you will need 50x69 = 3450xp

    the more crew members, the longer it takes as xp is shared between them

Not upgrading semi useless things (lol +70 radio, +5hp engine etc) doesn't seem to make as big of a difference as downgrading guns.
    Short anwser. You cant.

    Longer anwser.
    You dont, if match maker wants to fuck you you get fucked,
    They did have module weighting in the game during the beta but everyone sperged at wargaming beacuse they said if they had an IS for example when it was stock or with the 100/better 85mm it would be in lower games and then as soon as they got the 122mm they got put in higher tier and said why did we bother upgrading beacuse now we are in higher teir games.

    Pretty fucking stupid logic but wargaming took it out pretty quickly, also I dont think it worked quite how they wanted it either, you got games with an IS with the 85/100 in T5 games and they rolled everything.

    I really hope they have trading, would mean you could pick up rigged tanks cheaper etc.
    would be pro.

    They do not. But then again, they do not have turrets (for the most part).

    I have never needed it on my TD's or SPG's simply because I stop to shoot than keep rolling. For my Ferd and other TD's I go with vent, rammer, and gun laying drive (or spall liner). For the SPG's, I go with the same combo. Hit hard, hit fast, hit accurately.

    Yup. Not binos though, but yes coated optics + everything else (vents+gold consumable).

    In practice coated optics on 460 view range tank doesn't get you max vision. There is even a small difference between binos+optics and just binos.

    How about a link to the wiki is added to the op btw.

    No large patch incomming -> test server is down. A quick search on WG forums would have resulted in the same answer.

    Is there a trick to not losing money when driving the Panther II? It seems like every match I'm getting spotted somehow and nuked to oblivion by artillery then I lose 10k in repairs. I have 80% camoed crew and a net but somehow I'm getting spotted in bushes all over the place. Even if I manage to win a match, I have so much damage from tanks trying to pick me off that I don't break even on repairs. This tank is way too slow stock to void incoming shells.

    In short.
    lrn2play.

    In long.
    Im having the same issue with my KT I think you just need to play the tank more and learn how to drive it better.
    When I first started with my tiger I wasent loosing money on it (only beacuse prem) but by the time I got the KT I was making cash hand over fist with it beacuse I knew how to drive it.
    the amount of times the fucking thing burned to death made me mad.

    It gets better as you upgrade. Play it as a long range support sniper. I literally haven't lost money on the panther 2 save for maybe 3 games.

    According to a few google searches:

    Most tanks had a splashboard on the glacis plate although there are pictures of T-44A tanks without them. It protected the upper part of the vehicle from splashes of mud.
