But pzkfw VI Tiger II Konigstiger was very advanced and rare tank. I seriously doubt that allies would send it to combat instead of giveing it for researches. And most captured enemy tanks weren't totally repainted, they just had crosses on previous symbols and new symbols painted + flag in case of allies. But enough of nagging:p , great job on new skin, if it's not for realism than it looks very good. And it is true. You can't use it on map where axis have Tigers too because it'll mean the same skin for all unless you'll make a new model, copy Tiger II content and just rename it to be able to use different skin.

Although I appreiate the effort that you have put in to that skin, I highly doubt that the US ever operated captured King Tigers. Most were sent back for testing, some were destroyed. I know one infantry unit used tons of captured equipment, even a Bf-109, but I don't know about Tiger IIs.

Here is a good list of armor that was captured and put back into service by its new owner:

Germany:

  • Char B1 bis (training purposes)
  • Suoma S35
  • M4 Sherman
  • T-34s (all models)

Russia:

  • Panther

UK:

  • Panther

Also, the paint would not have changed, I would bet. Factory paint jobs were often left on, maybe touched up. The insignia, obviously, would have changed.

Some images:

No offense, but none of those next choices are worth your time. Make a Panther captured by the Russians. They were issued like trophies to the best Russian tankers, and told to never let them become disabled or knocked out. That should be your next move.

Well thanks for the info. I just wanna clear a few things out. 1st: What im doing here is certainly not for realism. I do it because I felt it would be cool to have some captured vehicles and I understand why someone feels offended but this is seriously nothing that will find the way to your screen if you dont want to. 2nd: I have a good source about a british captured panther from the other thread ->LINK<-.

Thats already done :) I have 2x king tigers the captured one and the original. I simply copied and pasted and changed the names and stuff nothing advanced going on here.

Well, if you do things that are realistic, and make their way into the mod, then you have your foot in the door. I really suggest that you work towards what actually existed, not just what you ambigously think to be cool. Do you really think that the Germans need more firepower with the IS-2 or Firefly?
