If a vehicle with the Elite status receives a new branch in the Tech Tree, the vehicle will keep its status, even if the newly added vehicles are not researched.
The А-20, a Soviet light tank, had Elite status before the introduction of the МТ-25, a Tier VI light tank.
Sometimes players may face the issue of Elite status not being displayed on the vehicle panel.
An Elite vehicle is a vehicle that has all modules and subsequent vehicles researched. A special mark is displayed on the vehicle icon. It indicates that the vehicle is Elite.
If a vehicle has not received Elite status in the vehicle panel and the Accelerate Crew Training option has not become available, despite the fact that all modules are researched, the player should enter a battle or restart the game client.
