Looked different picture trophy T-34 and there is a lot of photos where the Germans should be laid down for these tanks additional screens on the sides.
Probably too much to ask, but maybe it's worth to make these screens, so the tanks look more unique.

I've seen photos of captured T-34 with cupola. It will be better than just repainted soviet vehicle.

Comrades, remember this is not the final T-34. The final one will have more distinctive elements rather than only the skin :).

It will have different cupola and skirts.

@Erwin-Rommel
I guess they were re-chambered to use German ammo, just like they did with the Marder II (Sdkfz. 131) and the 7.62 cm F-22 field guns they put on these vehicles.

@TheVole
They cannot upgrade the beute-Shermans into the 76mm version, same for the T34/76 for the 85mm version. They just revive them... I think.

I haven't tested the sherman 76 resurrection so, I'm not sure if it will work on release :). Meanwhile you can use regular shermans.

Cool concept, but I'm quite worried about how the allies will fare against their own vehicles, since most target tables were not designed to fight against their allies (even AT guns have weird penetration values regarding their own faction vehicles).

Anyways I'll just wait and try it myself :D

Don't worry, we have thought about it as well, I think the balance will be fine :).

@modber
The Famo has the ability to bring back enemy wrecks as beutepanzers. However, this is limited to only the M4 Sherman for US, the T-34/76 and T-34/85 for Soviets and the Cromwell for the Brits. Although it is not free, but at least you do not destroy your wreck trying to revive it XD.

Famo can also revive axis(WH/PE) medium tanks like Panthers and Panzer IVs.

What kind of turret is that on the T-34? Is that a late prod. series for radios, or..?

Description

Ostheer will have access to some Beutepanzer units, however, it would be limited to M4 Shermans for the US, T-34s for the Soviets and Cromwells for the Commonwealth.

How do you get these? If you have followed the beta you already know this :).

Thanks to Xalibur for the Beutepanzer texture of the Sherman and thanks to DMz for the new T-34 texture.

Thanks to DMz and Beefy^ for the Sherman add-ons.
