OK I have uploaded a bunch of pictures that I gathered from arond the web. Hopefully I did nothing illegal by posting them. If please let me know.

First let me say I am new again to this forum. I used to follow it a while ago and recently rediscovered it. I find it to be an excellent resource.

I am very interested in the use of captured vehicles by the Germans. I really enjoyed the discussion on the use of French vehicles and would be interested in a similar discussion on the use of Russian vehicles, use in variants, conversions, OOB, TO&E information, AAR's etc.

Some sources I have that may be of interest include

Captured Armored Cars and Other Vehicles in Wehrmacht Service by Werner Regenberg

Captured Tanks under the German Flag Russian Battle Tanks by Dr. Werner Regenberg and Horst Scheibert

Captured Tanks in German Service Small Tanks and Armored Tractors 1939-1945 by Werner Muller

Panzer Units in the Operations Zone Adriatisches Kustenland (OZAK) 1943-1945.

Armored Vehicles and Units of the German Order Police by Werner Regenberg.

Look forward to the discussion.

Paul
