Status Report: Insider: Crew skill overhaul
some fresh info from the insider: World of Tanks developers are working on a skill/perk overhaul - these are the skills/perks that they are considering (with appropriate effect). Keep in mind that this might not come anytime soon (at least it won't as per Storm) so it's possible these are just directions they are thinking in. The developers are also considering speeding up the skill progression by making levelling up your crew easier to match all these new skills and perks. The names are translated and are likely only temporary. It's possible these will appear both in Xbox and PC tanks.
