So I just had a bad go with my E-75 and decided it was time to let her go. The tank just didn't fit my play style. Slow up hill and long reload were a few of my peeves with it. Now that left me with a decent crew so I bought the Jagdpanther II which has been researched for a long time.

 

This left me with a crew to put in it at 75%. The question is, do I put the crew in my Hammer and train it up to 100% quickly or do I just train it in the Jagdpanther II?

 

I can get it up to 100% quicker in the Hammer but I won't be earning any research XP to upgrade. If I already had all of the packages researched it would be a no brainer to use the Hammer.

 

Just a little curious as to what others think. I'm leaning on just using the Jagdpanther II so I can get the top gun quicker. I have the second package and the 10.5cm seems to be adequate. I'm very glad I had somehow already unlocked that gun because the 88 seems like it would have been rather painful.

 

Not really much of turretless TD lover but to be honest, the tier VII Jagdpanther isn't that bad. Seems the horizontal gun traverse is going to be my biggest problem with the J II.

Overtrain your crews. That's what I do.

 

In your case, I would just use crew XP boosts in JPanther and get to 100% faster + you get XP.

Yeah, I usually overtrain my crews but this was an impulsive sell and it takes forever to overtrain once you get lots of skills. Good point on the crew XP boosts. I'm not sure if I have any left. I don't ever buy them but I've won some a few times.

I would put crew in Jag and earn xp for upgrades as i go. True it's better to overtrain but in this case just roll with the punches

Play the tanks that give you the best stats or are the most fun to play.  (You will find they are often the same.) Everything else will sort itself out.  

 

If you have to train up a crew form 75 percent, use boosts and ops.  If you've saved some crew so boosts you can get a crew from 75 to 100 percent in 4 games or less.  WG has made to too easy lately.
