'Fury'....whose tanks are they using...??
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

This is most untimely. Sets back the filming date of my "Haunted Tank" production by at least a year. I hope Billy Bob Thornton is still available for shooting then. Sad

Whatever the movie is, no Hollywood or otherwise TC is ever going to match the legendary Oddball. Razz

I'vez read that the film is about a tank crew during the last days of WW2. They are using an M4A2(76) HVSS or an M4A3(76) HVSS, so this would fit. However, the most common tracks for HVSS tanks in 1945 were steel tracks and not rubber tracks. The wood and sandbags additional protection on the tank in the photo below also doesn't really fit with what we can see in period photos.

P-O that is Bovington Tank Museums M4A2 76mm HVSS and true or not I have heard that they may have paid to use the Tiger 1.... have to wait and see I guess.

I'm seriously cringing here. I'll be impressed when they get Brangelina "into character" by teaching him to bust track. Laughing

A real tough audience here...LOL

Give the movie a chance, I will. The 'long hair' photos are in the training phase prior to filming. At least he's trying to 'get in character'.

As for the vehicles, hopefully they do use restored vehicles and not vismods. BUT, its Hollywood, so anything is possible... Perhaps even a properly equipt tank movie...

At least its not George Clooney...LOL!!

I remember being on location with Michael Caine in the late 70s IIRC doing a film about the crew of a matilda retreating across France during 1940. It was based on a book whose name I forget but anyway I digress - they actually had a Matilda but it had no engine and all the 'moving' shots had to be it freewheeling downhill which made for some interesting scenes and much recovery work. In the end they abandoned production because of cost overruns etc.

Well, it's starting to look ever-so-much better...

"Pitt will play a battle-hardened sergeant named Wardaddy."

Even better, it also stars Shia LaBeouf. What could possibly go wrong? Laughing

It might be OK because a member of the cast is Scott Eastwood, son of Clint.

A good mix of vehicles in that park, I spot JCs M4A4, TMs M4A2 76 HVSS, an M4A2 that I have seen before in the UK and the original German half track that looks like Bruce Cromptons.
