Following the success of Operation Barbarossa, many Soviet vehicles were captured as were the factories for making them and the workshops for their repair. Many of these vehicles were adapted to German use in various roles.
Although some of these tanks were used as is, mainly in a Partizan supression or police role, more were pressed into service as prime movers where its tracked nature proved valuable in dealing with the poor conditions on the Eastern Front.

Small numbers of this tank, Russian Vehicle Note 5 were captured and pressed into service. Unlike the T60 (Russian Vehicle Note 4, German Vehicle Note 1d), this was found to be effective as a fighting vehicle so tended to be used as such rather than being converted to a tow vehicle.

Stuart tanks were captured and put into use on almost all fronts. In the Desert, where the mobile warfare saw workshops overrun and lack of supply saw many captured vehicles pressed into service on both sides and the Eastern front where this vehicle was often abandoned due to the poor supply meant it's limited range often meant it was left unable to move.
See Russian Vehicle Note 48, Briotish Vehicle Note 3 and U.S. Vehicle Note 3.
