I'm not too sure about that either and have assumed, that I can level these skills up as soon as I have one more gunner. Might be that you need the amount of experienced gunners as the airplane has gunner positions, which is 3 in your case to level up more than one point for each gunner.

Currently the War Thunder forum is down, but I just found a thread that relates to the question by googling a bit I think (They seem to be moving the forum, I hope the links redirects to the new website then)

Oh its pretty simple, you need to have to have exactly (or more) "experienced gunners" as the number of gunners in your plane (3 in your case), otherwise you get penalties to the skills.
You can add skills to the aiming etc. but you will get massive penalties, and effectiveness of the skill will be very low (for eg. you can have skill at 5/50, but with -3 penalty its effectiveness is just 2/50 etc.)

Basically, for bombers with many gunners, you first have to spend shitload of time getting additional "experienced gunners", before improving skills. Although I myself think its much better to firs to go for "expert" crew qualification first, you'll get it in shorter time(if you skill up properly) than even one gunner, and then obtaining gunners will be a lot easier. (actually, going for "expert" first, should be a priority on ANY crew)

Just started playing, have gone through the tutorial and played 1 online round.
Game has great potential! I like it a lot.

Simple question: when all my planes are spent for one round, can I quit the mission and still recieve my XP points, or do I have to wait in Spectator mode until it's over?
I see were you are trying to reach: "how can a 17 year old kid have such a thinking like this? why doesnt he wants to be like normal teens who whana get rich? and his plan actually makes sense, but is too damn revolutionary and good at the same time than is still doubthfull if it works..." - Damaso

Finally finished downloading the 6+ Gb, registered under the same nick as here.

For now, I just did the tutorials and 2 arcade rounds. The battle was quite messy but I managed to down a plane ! Still have to try it deeper. I'm not used to the mouse+keyboard flying but my joystick is kaputt.

A few questions come to my mind :

- these two battles were really chaotic, does it change with the "tiers" (or whatever the name is, been playing WoT a bit too much) ?

- Can someone explain me a bit how to level up. I saw that you get money and XP for your actions, but I saw that you have ranks for each nation, skills for the crew, etc...I don't really get all these things and their forums are down.

- Do you need to buy hangar slots or you can add as many planes as you want ?

@ Musti and Shitmaker: Thanks for the explanation

Simple question: when all my planes are spent for one round, can I quit the mission and still recieve my XP points, or do I have to wait in Spectator mode until it's over?
You get the XP and money also when leaving.

- these two battles were really chaotic, does it change with the "tiers" (or whatever the name is, been playing WoT a bit too much) ?
I´m at Tier 5 atm. and it´s still chaotic. However the specialised roles of the Aircraft are now easier to distinguish... you have the bombers trying to get the ground targets at higher altitudes, the "attacker" aircraft trying to get you in one run and the one-motor aircraft still fly everywhere around the airfields trying to shoot everything in sight without any formation. But it´s better than the first rounds imo.

- Do you need to buy hangar slots or you can add as many planes as you want ?
You can buy 2 Hangar slots for "silver". After that it costs you "gold". With more slots you can participate longer in the battle, but imo 5 slots (the ones you can buy for silver) are enough. After that you can change the planes that you already had there before in that slot with the new one. The crew however needs to be instructed to that aircraft for some silver. Don´t know whether you can change the aircraft after they have been instructed again and again for free.

Q1: Yeah, battler are a chaotic, At a bit higher tiers people tend to be a bit more smart (sticking together, covering bombers), but no, it stays like that (F2P game, what do you expect)

Q2:You earn 4 types of exp (well, not really, but it will be easier to explain)
1.Your general rank shows how much total XP you gathered in general (quite obvious). Total XP you get from a battle goes there.

2.You Air force rank determines what planes you get, and you also unlock single player missions. The higher the air force rank, the more interesting shit you get (like tiers in WOT). Its quite cool because you just have to fly for a certain nation to unlock more planes, so if you don't like a certain plane, you can just skip i t and play the other ones(a fighter you don't like for example). Just like General rank, total XP from a battle goes there but only to the nation you were playing.

3.Each plane you were playing, also gets XP, When you gather enough XP on a plane you get various unlocks for them(apart from rank 0 planes, they don't have any unlocks), some planes have mor of them thanthe other. You gain plane XP for basically doing shit with it (you can check stats after a battle, and see whats what, just)

4. Crew XP. Basically its like plane exp. only its for the crew ,you get it for killing stuff etc. After a battle you get XP point that then you can spend to skill up your crew (cost of skilling up rises slowly, at the beginning it takes 1 XP point to get 1 skill point, but then it changes to 2 for 1, 3 for 1 etc.)

Q3: You can have as many planes as you want. There is no limit of planes you have, BUT there is limit on crews. Basically you start with 3 planes and 3 crews with each nations. Whenever you got to battle, you go with these 3(your whole line up), one gets shot down, you pick another one etc. But you can buy more crews, to have more "lives" per battle (you can have better choice of planes, and you can fight longer), You can have 5 crews per nation without spending any real money.  You can always change the planes in your line up whenever you want

I'm RDDT_Fh2Hi for those interested.

Loving the Japanese tree, albeit I'm only rank 3 so far. So maneuverable its crazy.


Liking the Ami tree too but the P-40 has the maneuverability of a barrel.  I can't stand the German tree the planes are too unmaneuverable even at L3

Started with british tree, but after getting the Hurricane I've (for the time being) switched to soviet, with the promise of a MiG eventually, and heavy bombers as well.
Plus, love the look of the soviet planes.

Whats better than Hurricane MK.2? A black Hurricane Mk.2, what a great camo. Awesome plane, 12 mgs, rockets, bombs, fully upgraded and with expert crew. I'm keeping it. I wish for the MK.2 version with 4x20mm cannons.

What a beauty.

Bouras, it will probably be added. These are definitely not the full trees
