Re: external gas tanks

On Soviet tanks diesel was used which is not so prone to catch fire as petrol and IRRC on of the drums on later T-34 series was motor oil. I would also add that on post war tanks (T-54, 55, 62, 64, 72 etc.) additional fuel drums mounted at the rear were are not ment for combat but would be removed b...

Re: Flying Fortress captured

Not really. Japanese planes were the ones they got early in the war after Phillipines and NEI (Java mostly) campaigns where they were damaged and left behind. Japanese captured and fixed them. German planes were damaged i.e. crashlanded birds that they managed to fix and get airborne again.
