Capturing enemy equipment

Postby HrcAk47 » Fri 10 Mar 2017 02:35

I was thinking, will it be possible to capture enemy equipment, should one manages to "tactically outplay" them? I mean the stuff like heavy machineguns, AT guns, mortars... maybe even tanks? MadMat did mention something that crews can abandon tanks after sufficient hurt to their feelings. So that got me wondering.
The SEAD never bothered me anyway.

No, you won't capture enemy equipment. Not dynamicaly.
Yet, some actually recorded war booties have been included in some divisions.

If your crew abandons a tank is that equivalent to it being knocked out? AKA is is re-crewable if it's friendly?

So enemies can't press the surrendered unit into service but if you come across the vehicle you can if it was yours originally? That's a neat idea.

That was me asking a question him. It makes more sense though. It's easier to use your own stuff rather than learning are you go with the enemy's.

Well that depends if you got trained crew. Frankly i don't see this being a thing. Especially for tanks. You don't learn to operate stuff in 2 minutes.

I doubt it as well, but doesn't hurt to ask. :D

During Pegasus bridge the ox and bucks captured a German anti tank gun will this make an appearance?
Interestingly they used it to try to deal with German snipers hitting a water tower and the local maternity hospital no one was hurt but the soldier manning the gun read later that the Germans got the blame!

Being shot at really is a great incentive to learn faster though!

It really isn't, direct fire guns are about as far as you can go. Beyond that it gets too technical.
