BFC, Why no Russian use of captured Panzerfausts, when there was IRL?

Recommended Posts

I ran a search and never was able to find anything official on this. Clearly, they were used. Beevor, for example describes them being used to create "doors" into buildings in Berlin. One figure I saw indicated about a million were used during the war.

Here's what I found, with a freebie for the Finns and Finnophiles!

Panzerfausts for nonGermans in CMBB. Note large quantity seized and used by Russians IRL.


More discussion of use here.


Couldn't find a direct discussion of why the Russians aren't allowed them in CMBB, but this was too juicy to pass up. A Finnish Panzerfaust manual!
