I've tried searching for an answer on this, so, if I've missed it or over-thought this, forgive me.

 

I have 2 crews I've swapped between TT and premium tanks. Now, I'd like to modify the arrangement without a (silver) training penalty. Here's the scenario:

 

1. Crew A is in the Marder 38T and has been swapped with the D. Max.

2. Crew B is in the E 25 and has been swapped with the Jg. Pz. IV.

3. If I move Crew B to the D. Max and back to the E 25, does Crew B get a penalty when moved to the Jg. Pz. IV again?

4. If I move Crew B to the D. Max and then directly to the Jg. Pz. IV, does Crew B get a penalty?

 

In my mind, there shouldn't be a penalty because I'm not changing Crew B's TT "home" tank. ...but I want to be sure before I lose silver and time. Thanks in advance.

Crews can move to any prem tank without silver penalties.... of the same nation of course.

I want to say that as long as you do not change the assigned TT tank, you should be good.

 

Might be wrong though...sorry :(

To the best of my recollection,

If a crew is in a TT tank, to assign them to another TT tank you will pay either Gold or Silver to reassign them. Once you have paid the Gold or Silver, that tank is then their home tank, regardless of which tank that crew started in. Additionally, if you keep the crew that comes with a premium tank and you want to assign that crew to a TT Premium, you will have to pay and then that crew becomes assigned to said TT tank. 

 

If I'm incorrect in any of this, please correct me

Crew B can do Everything stated . Without xp loss or need of silver . as E 25 and Dicker Max are premium vehicles.

Everything here is correct. There are Rare occasions when a premium crew gets 1 free transfer. Sabaton and I think WS crews ....

You will only have to retrain crew B if you accidently move it into crew A's TT tank (Marder 38 t) But it should say "move back for free " (when it is the correct tank) or something like that. You can basically move as many German crews in and out of German premium tanks as you want. So you could try out three different crews with a different set of skills/perks in the E25 to see which crew better suits that tank. And then safely return them to their original TT tanks. Hope this helps.

They should have a "move crews to home tanks" that works for your whole garage. I get confused about which crews in which premium tanks belong to which TT tank.

Absolutely correct. I tried it out tonight (Crew B from E 25 to D. Max to Jg.Pz. IV) with no penalty. Thanks to all for the confirmation.

Essentially that was the problem I was trying to solve: "If I went from TT to premium to premium, would I have to remember (on my own) the original TT tank?" As stated above, in the Reassign option from the latest premium tank -- regardless of the number of premium reassignments, there will be a caption above the home TT tank which says, "Assign back for free".

Basically your crew will have an assigned tech tree tank it belongs too. If you try putting it in another tech tree tank you’ll have to pay silver (and retrain the crew from 75%), but if it’s only moved the crew between premium vehicles there is no penalty and can go back to its assigned tech tree tank whenever you feel like it.

If you select the crew in a Prem then "reassign" you can scroll through a list of tanks and then select the one that states "can be assigned back for free", or something similar. "free" being the keyword here.

There was a suggestion a while ago to have the Home Tank be the first in the list but it's apparently not a priority.

 

Edit: Back to OP

A crew can only have one TT home tank. They can be moved into any Premium tank for no cost. Moving into a new TT tank will cost silver/gold/overtraining XP and become their new home tank.

Remember, it's just a game!

I’ve suggested this several times in the past. I think Wargames just gave us that label that lets you know you can put the crew back into its home tank for free instead. 

I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

The crews belong to a TT tank only, not the premium ones. You will never pay anything if the same crew ever returns to the same TT tank, no matter what premium they went to.

For example the crew of my VK36 ballad in a captured KV1, Kraft panther and Panther 8.8 because they need the same skills, when I returned in my VK I did not pay anything It seems to me  (it's past, I'm not uses more TT tank now) If I decided to transfer the crew of my E-25 in my VK36 (it does not belong to him), in addition to paying to train it I would have to pay gold to change several useless skills for him.
