i guess the name could do with a bit of help, but the idea is simple: vehicles that were captured from one side and used by the other.
examples:
saint-chamond used by german forces
t-55 used by IDF
various panzers used by soviet forces
and so forth

as some research is needed by participants, i suggest June 1st 2018 as a starting date, and June 1st 2019 as end date. period would be WWI-present

I like Robin's suggestion - "Under New Management".

A June or later start would suit me, most of my group builds are over by then. I have a few options open, but maybe I'd do the Marder 3 Ausf M Early used by the British in Italy

Sounds interesting. Would join with either with German tank used by British or American, or Russian tank used by Finnish.

Count me also in.
I'll build a German vehicle, captured by the Soviets,but transfered and in use with the First Bulgarian Army in 1945.
It might be a Hetzer or Pz.IV/70(V), or even the mighty Panther.

My kind of campaign. "Under New Management" -- There was one several years back called as such. So maybe the Campaigns Admin may name this as #2. "Pre-owned" sounds ok too. Whatever... am in for this one for sure

Count me in. A June start date would be good. Should have my workhorses campaign finished. I've got an Academy German Panzer 747(r), better known as a T-34/76, waiting to be built.

Did some shopping, and my entry will be KV-1 in Finnish markings. Finns captured two KV-1 tanks in 1942 (KV-1 and a KV-1E), and I'm building the cast turret KV-1 probably in 1943-1944 three colour camouflage scheme.

I'll post proper starting picture once the campaign starts.

2017. See 1/2 way down the page:

http://za.ign.com/battlefield-next/105231/preview/battlefield-1-they-shall-not-pass-expansion-rundown

Jokes aside, they were captured, but I am not aware that any were then used by the Germans
