Hello. As discussed on CCS (link ), would it be possible to actually use captured guns/vehicles in combat? I always wondered whether those captured 88's or Shermans would show up in my forcepool later on, but I never encountered one.

In real life the Germans seemed to use any captured equipment as much as they could. I think it would be a very nice feature for Close Combat if captured equipment could be put to use, later on in the campaign. Thanks for looking into it!

They could be modded into a force pool associated with a date. But is there any evidence that any vehicles or guns captured during the operation were used in the operation. The Germans certainly used a lot of captured equipment the Russians also did if they got enough of it, and had time to train on it, I would doubt that the combined US British forces did at all.

I personally would not like equipment captured in game to be added to the force pool.

It's not that often when you capture a piece, usually it's destroyed, so it won't be that commonplace. Capturing something implies you can use it for yourself, so why not make use of this? It's a prominent column on the scoring table, and sometimes I actively try to capture some pieces, but then after the battle it has no effect? A bit strange, don't you think?

I believe it would add to the realism angle of the game, just like scavenging weapons does. Those are pretty advanced game features. It could be limited with a limited ammo supply for example, or with a 'chance' factor of getting the thing to work. For the non-likers, perhaps this could be in the 'options' screen: "Use captured enemy vehicles/guns" check box.

If it could be modded, then maybe the modders out there could think about it.

Tanks captured removes them from the enemy forcepool. That in itself is worthwhile as its loss to the enemy. I can't see the developers spending time on this there are many features that would be worth including or improving before this. It can only be modded by putting the enemy equipment in the forcepool, this would not relate to whether or not you had captured the equipment, it would be just there at a given date.

I don't care about that, I just contribute possible ideas/improvements. Whether or not they're picked up or in what order they're dealt with, is up to them. Not posting doesn't get anything done.
