    Is anyone aware of any German units posted from the eastern front to the western front that brought any captured soviet vehicles with them?

    I'm intrigued by the possibility of a cromwell/churchill/shermen, etc vs t34 battle.

    Thanks

    This excellent site might help;
    Beutepanzers.
    There are some shots of T34 & KV2 tentatively identified as part of a German force destined for Malta and some speculation on whether a T34 can be seen in France on one image. At the very least it's good starting reference for what units used which vehicles... and a fascinating website.
    cheers,
    Adam.

    Here's one of a Churchill Mark III recovered by the Germans after falling into a hole on Dieppe's promenade.
    If memory serves correctly, her name is "Betty".
