I know there are similar topics, but I can't seem to find one with the info I'm looking for. I'd like to start a US bb crew (to eventually get bb6) and I want to know what sailors are best. I've heard a lot of people recommend this:
1 bo, 2 gunners, 5 eng, 3 rep, 1 scout.
While this is nice, I still have some questions. Does repair ability or eng ability cap? If so, how many sailors will it take to reach this cap and what level will it cap? Can I use eng/rep from my uk bb crew or do i need to make new US ones? What base should my main gunners be and how should i level them? (I can get prem and/or boost them). Also, I am not a fan of aa gunners. (but if my eng and rep caps with extra slots left over, I'll make AA gunners)
Please give me some advice on the best crew setup possible, how to class my sailors (main gunners), if UK rep/eng skills are transferable to US (I know some nations transfer skills), and what sailors I should buy elite and/or boost. Thank you guys for the help.
P.S. I've made a US BB5 crew on Navyfield Europe, but it's been a long time since I played US.
