BEUTEPANZERS - GERMAN USE OF CAPTURED TANKSEdit

Beutepanzers Codex Entry

German tank detachments used captured French and British tanks in combination with advancing infantry. They were mainly used in support roles because of their small numbers, and were tasked with drawing the attention of the enemy defenses.

But without the capacity to resupply or repair them effectively in the field, once the "Beutepanzer" were knocked out or had broken down, their crews usually abandoned them. The use of the cumbersome, slow-moving tanks was never really popular with German High Command, because they contradicted the quick, aggressive tactics of the German attacks.
