I know the soviets did not have that many trucks at the beginning of the war but they did have over 100,000 of them...but after two turns as germans i have not captured any?

russian tank and mech units must have trucks

sure most stuff was moved by waggons!

You are looking at how many of your vehicles have been captured, not how many you have captured (if you are looking at the loss screen during your turn).

That fooled me more than once too. Maybe slightly reword this entry?
AFAIR it's also translated wrong in german due to the impression of captured vehicles, not vehicles lost by capture.

Probably it makes sense to reverse it. It should be much more clear what amount is captured, then what amount from what was lost is actually captured by enemy.

Yes, but this was set up just to show your losses. The wording is clearly deceptive though. Having something tell you how many enemy trucks you have captured would be nice to know too.

But it doesn't display the loss - it is way more accurate. It was not possible to know how many of vehicles were captured vs destroyed.

Agreed that it should just be lost to enemy action, and doesn't need to be broken into combat and capture. IIRC this was added more for debug info, and it just stuck.
