From: Markus Poehlmann <email@example.com> Subject: German Commandeering Russian Tanks at Kursk Date: March 31, 2010 3:33:01 AM EDT To: Antwort H-War <firstname.lastname@example.org> The use of captured tanks in the German army was endemic from the very beginning. In fact, the bulk of the German tank force in 1918 consisted of captured British Mark IV. It might be of some interest that the Red Army also used 'foreign' tanks at Kursk. The 36. Guard-Tank-Regiment, for example, fielded British Mark IV (A22) Churchill.
