Howdy-

In the Russian OB, they get a German LMG, is this weapon considered captured and if so, it will suffer both Ammo shortage and captured use penalties?

thanks

I have no special information regarding this scenario. Barring an SSR, however, the default must be that the LMG suffers Captured Use Penalties. This by the first sentence of A21.1:

A21.1 POSSESSION: Any SW counter [EXC: radio] possessed by an enemy unit may be used by its new owner, subject to certain restrictions [meaning that A21.11 ff. will apply]...​

Regardless, Ammunition Shortage never applies to captured Gun/SW (A21.11).
