I didnt see any previous posts in re: Pacific series.
What is the scuttle butt on the tracks used in the series? I dont recall them saying much about it in the "how it was made" previews. Figured I would try to get it here first.
The jap tank a vismod (based on what?)? I notice the "OD" looks very "green" on the their trucks and jeeps.

I've not seen the series - but I'd offer that most USMC vehicles would be "Marine Corps Green" rather than OD.

I thought the Japanese tank moved awful quickly in last week's episode...

But I suppose that could be racked up to artistic license based on exaggerated memory...

I can post stills from the "Peleilu" episode if anyone is interested?

A great series "The Pacific", right up there with "Band of Brothers", "Letters from Iwo Jima" and "Flags of our Fathers", even up a notch when it comes to battle scenes.

The bulk of the miniseries was filmed in Austrailia. I don't know how many Amtracks are running (I thought only a couple) but they had at least one for the filming plus others that were mock ups and a bunch added via CGI. There was at least one Sherman in the Peleliu episode. There were at least two Japanese light tanks shown - likely mock ups, but I don't know what chassis was used. The Guadalcanal episodes had a halftrack (M3) running in a couple scenes.

Yes, Rik, please post the stills.

I noticed that the Jap tanks were pretty quick too, figured maybe they were Toyotas and were experiencing some issues with the accelerator pedals...
As you Neil, I figured they were CG/partial CG and that being artist creations they had them zipping around like they were.
I thought someone on here had within the past year or so posted a topic of a restored Jap tank ??? Thought maybe that vehicle had played a role in the series.

I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

Will post stills from both the aired Peleilu episodes later today, any special requests?
