It's always handy to keep a little bit of each type of ammunition available in each of your tanks.  Look below, and whichever way the dial is pointing, either towards Armor-Piercing (AP) or High-Explosive (HE incl. HEAT), is the type of ammo you should over-load.

Which crew SKILLS & PERKS should I take?…

One of either a  Small Repair Kit or a Large Repair Kit is virtually always needed on every tank.

Repair Kit*

A Small or Large First Aid Kit is almost always recommended on ALL of your tanks in World of Tanks.  Oil or Gasoline are often used on light tanks, but typically at the expense of the Fire Extinguisher (go for the automatic version whenever possible)

Camo is a much needed skill for every tank - but doubly so for light tanks, scouts, tank destroyers and mediumsRepair is a handy skill for every tank, but especially heavies, and mediums.Sixth Sense is the most useful skill for every tank's commander - always take it first.The Mentor skill is virtually useless.  Use it only when you want to train crew members as fast as possible.Remember, Brothers in Arms only works if EVERY crew member in your tank has it!One of the better skills - take itOff-Road Driving increases every tank's speed in certain conditions - and speed wins battles - so take it.Adrenaline Rush is only useful in rare occasions when you're about to die - so what's the point?Call For Vengeance is another in a long line of useless crew-skills & perksCome play Mechwarrior Online with me!This tank's global win-rate is...:

The Medium 1 is the only Medium Tank at Tier 1.

Being the heaviest tank at the tier, you’d expect the Medium I to be considerably higher-armored than the rest of the tier.  But, you would be mistaken.  The Medium I has virtually no armor at all (6mm).  Absolutely everything that gets a clear shot at you will penetrate.  Your only hope is that they hit a highly-angled part of your tank - and don’t triple-over-match!

That being said, the Medium I has a devastating gun for Tier 1, capable of 2-shotting pretty much anything.  So, be sure to keep close to cover.  And, don’t rely on your speed, as the Medium I has a rather anemic top-speed of only 24km/h.  You should really play the tank more like a Tank Destroyer (TD).  

The Medium I plays very similarly to what you can expect from a lot of the British Tanks which come after it:  mediocre speed, great gun, little to no armor.  But, boy that gun!…  Nothing is more fun than watching a light tank come around a corner to meet your gun unexpectedly!  It won’t end well for him at all…

The Medium I leads to a whopping 6 different tanks in the British line!  So, if you choose the Medium I, know you’ll be playing it for a while.
