Hey fellow tankers,

Loaders are kind of hard up for crew skill choices in most tanks. But SPG loaders seem to have even fewer viable choices. After taking Brothers in Arms and Concealment all the other skills seem kind of pointless:
  • Firefighting - I've never seen an SPG burn to death. Too few hit points for it to really be an issue.
  • Repairs - Again the low hit points make this almost moot. If you lose your track, you're pretty much already dead. A slightly faster repair won't save the vehicle.
  • Intuition - I don't see the point in premium HE, so what ammo types would I be switching between?
  • Safe Stowage - Most of the time when and SPG ammo rack is damaged, you just explode. And if it was just damaged it seems unlikely that your regular 30sec reload is going to save your from the follow up shot of whatever just shot you. and
  • Adrenaline Rush seems a bit iffy too. Most SPG's are 2 shots kills. I don't see many SPG's getting around on 9% health.

So what would you recommend for the third skill on SPG loaders? (Not that I have a 3 skill arty crew.... I'm ah... asking for a friend.)

I train mine on the assumption I'll swap them into a real tank at some stage.

Like you I'd never have a 3 skill arty crew but looking at a 'friends' garage he would retrain Safe stowage as 2nd after concealment hits 100% on one of the first loader then restart concealment.

My 'friends' highest skill arty crew has BIA, Safe stowage, Concealment on one loader and adrenalin rush training as 3rd skill on the other loader (after BIA and Concealment).

CGC - I went BIA, then safe stowage + adrenaline rush ( i didn't even bother with concealment and was not going to allocate gold to arty) then went concealment


T92 - BIA then intuition for both. It felt even more dirty getting an instantaneous AP shell load one in three times.......

I've turned a fair few SPG loaders into fresh commanders and drivers over the years to get a new tank off to a good start.
