Starting KM SS line,what should my crew be?

if you have a KM BB then you will only need the opration crew + sonarman &planesman
 
basiclly i will tell you what crews KM SS5 needs to make it a hunting shark and you should know about the lower tiers
 
1-BO  most ss players make there BO ghost  (no sailors)
some other players get elite repair and delay the classing as BO for very late level
and then make that sailor a BO with out making him a ghost cos that will give them good repair
2- two  tropedo crews (torpedo stat 12 if possible if not 11 will do)
3 planesman  15 POT if possible if not try 14 (if you have olives buy Elite Potential Sailor)
4- sonarman / if you plan to be other SS players nightmare i suggest Elite Potential Sailor then Premium Sailor
if you just wanna have fun  15 or 14 POT will do it
5-two engenires with 12 engine stat
6- repairman with 12 repair stat
 
 
all of the above stat are good but you will need to BVE your crew to have the best out put from them

Actually a BO doesn't lose any support stats so an elite repair classed as BO right away is actually better because classing increases crew growth.

you are 100% correct BO don't lose any stat only gain 2 POT
my mistake i didn't clarfiy what i mean
*by delaying  you can put that sailor on support slot of any ship
and level him faster than classing him as SS BO since SS exp sucks
thanks for your concern i made alot of mistakes while grinding my KMSS5
and always had to start over gain to fix these mistakes
so this is what every one should do
 
PS: KM SS4 gunners are useless in my opinion
why ? cos
1. no good sub driver is willing to surface and pom pom a ship
while he can put a torpedo in it ,
2. using these pom pom means revealing your postion
and alerting every enemy ship
3.your sight /gun range is limited so when you think that there is nothing guarding
a cv and try to surface to kill it you will probably open the hell doors on your self
4.- KM SS 4 have 8 slots
1-BO
2- tropers
1- sonar
1-planes
1-repair(on gun slot)
2-enginers(one on gun slot)
as you can see no place for gunners
 
of course you will say why would i put enginer on gun slot which means it won't help in OH
well becuase in SS5 if you don't have 2 enginers you will be food
that BEAST is somehow slow and need 2 enginers

[/QUOTE]Clearly you have never surfaced on top of an unarmed CV and flakked it to death. Also it saves torpedos. Have fun running out of "trops" after killing 2 BBs :\

[/QUOTE]There are other ways of taking down an SS besides tanking hits, maybe you prefer reps in your gun slots, I don't. And no I don't have an SS5, what does that have to do with anything? I think my stats are decent for my SS4 and BO lvl, I don't really care for comparing kill counts but here's mine:

in SS 5 you will need 2 enginers cos it is  somehow a slow beast
so my suggestion is get of the gunners and put repairman and 1 extra enginer you will need it in SS5

What you want during progression is prettty straightforward until SS4.BO, Sonar, Planesman, Engr, Torpedomen.But you definitely want to use the U-Flak guns.  They are totally awesome.  You'll need a pair of L77 gunners when you get to that stage.  Those who disparage those guns have absolutely no experience with them.  I've ripped many a squadron of T4s and Bombers out of the sky, keep pesky ASW at length, and polish off that smoking CV without wasting another torp.  As for SS5,  you have 5 support + 1 gunner (that is essentially a useless spot everyone puts a support person on).  I run my Sonar and Planesman + 3 Chief Engineers + a Seaman on the gunner slot.  I pull 900 SD without a repairman and I know my Seaman is helping my other crewmembers in their special services that a repairman can't and my existing repairman is too low a level, lousy and ineffective.So you can put any number of support + Sonar and Planesmen in those slots.  I prefer 3 Engineers + 1 Seaman.  .
