German Captured Vehicles and Conversions

The German army made use of any captured vehicles they still deemed useful and these usually ended up being crewed by Germans and serving in that region. In some cases many of these vehicles were used outside their native borders and fought in places like the Russia front, the Balkans and even North Africa. The German army also converted many of these captured vehicles and used them as a basis for self-propelled guns, these ranged from tank destroyers to armoured artillery and were armed with a variety of guns and howitzers.
