Wow the Germans were even using captured Halftrack in 1940, did we send these out that early to the French or English!

The sign at the top of the house when enlarged looks like Italian words. Very blurry.

Really nice additions.

I found some new pictures of beutepanzer too at warhistoryonline.

 

This one was already posted in post #15, but from a different angle

Another one, looks like Africa too, tan colored uniforms and painted helmets, this one has a Flak Kannone mounted into it after capture, haven't ascertained the type of cannon that is yet, will shop this around on WMF, maybe it too is a Erbeute model, Czech. Polish???

Not a Weapon in the strictest sense I know, But I've Been looking at this photo for years and years, first seen it in 1983 in this big book I bought and still have by Andrew Mollo HERE

 

Seeing the photo now online, I never noticed this Schütze of the Herman Göring Division in the lead has an American GI T Handle Entrenching Tool shoved in his belt, never noticed till a couple of days ago LOL, always thought it was and opened German folding one LOL.

Not to be difficult, but this pic is not from 1940. I'm interested in where it was obtained.

😄That's from a movie, the 1969 The Battle of Britain, a sequence when the Germans got the Allies on the run.  I was just doing my customary goofing around 😆

 

I did the same with the two other color photos, these being from Patton the other The Battle of the Bulge 😊.

Not only the germans used foreign equipment, the american 83rd division was called the "Rag Tag Circus" in 1945 because of the use of every german vehicle they can find, who gave them at least 90% of the speed of the 2nd armored divison on their race to the Elbe.
