Are there any German list that use captured Polish Tanks? I acquired some Old Glory stuff in an auction and was looking to use them in a German list. Otherwise I will wait for the day I want to paint up a Polish force. I saw that Germans used the 7TP in Normandy any idea?

Hmmm ....a polish 7TP in Normandy? Well I have never heard of one .... and if so ... as a prime loader ...Tracker ...or tow?

Anyways ... Germans did use 7TPs for a little bit right after the Polish Campaign ... not sure if they ever saw combat though.

but never the less ...using a 7TP in German colors in place of a 38t or 35t could be a hoot.

cheers!~

Why not use the Beutepanzer list and just sub-in the models for another tank?

Well I spent $74 dollars for about $580 dollars worth of 15mm miniatures. I paid about a buck a tank. So if I have fun painting them as German then I got my money's worth. If I get them on the table one day then it is an added bonus. Plus it gives me something to research.

7TP were possible used in the Normandy for Training but where replaced with better Tanks before the Landung.

Polish Tanks were used in Finland but as I know they were 3.TK and TKS. 7TP were possible used in 1941 for fighting Partisans.
