1943 Autocar M15 Halftrack Multiple Gun Motor Carriage

Yep, Autocar M15 Halftrack (NB not an M15A1 as the M2 Machine guns are mounted above the 37mm gun)

Henschel Pz.Kpfw.VI 'Tiger'
Fury (2014)
Yep Kevin Wheatcroft, I have a friend who works in his collection. His Panther is absolutely stunning, he has most of a King Tiger in parts which he plans to get Running, an S-Boot along with loads of other stuff. There is also a King Tiger in Switzerland being restored to running condition and there was talk a while back that Bovingdon wanted to get their King Tiger running too, but I doubt that will happen any time soon. 2014-10-13 22:57
Henschel Pz.Kpfw.VI 'Tiger'
Fury (2014)
Yep, excellent armour and firepower, but the technology wasn't available to make a strong enough engine and transmission.

Despite the fact the Bovingdon Tiger is a very early one it is very authentic for late in the war when all sorts of early Tigers and Panthers were pulled out if training units for combat. Here is one of Germany's last (early) tigers KO'd near the Brandenburg Gate

Fisher M4 'Sherman'
Verboten! (1959)
It can be tricky, I use Hunnicutt and Son of Sherman vol 1

Link to "www.amazon.co.uk"
http://www.bookworldws.co.uk/sherman-volume-p-5973.html

In the case of this, these look to be American (number of them and no fireflies)

That rules out A2 and A4 which weren't used by the US in Europe
The welded hull rules out the A1 which had a cast hull only
Very late M4s had the flat welded glacis (without the lumps for the driver's hatches) but they all appear to have had the 105 howitzer fitted
Leaving the A3 which had the flat glacis and 75 mm gun and was used by the US in Europe.

It is still it can be tricky with grainy pictures where you can't see much.

but AFAIK the engine is not quite original , they put it the more powerful engine version from the Tiger 2 (King Tiger)

That's because they managed to destroy the original engine trying to get it running 😬.

unknown M3
Fury (2014)
The Sherman "Fury" and Tiger were from Bovington, and possibly some of the other Shermans, most of the softskin and semi tracked armour came from collectors and film supply companies. The Sd.Kfz.7, Sd.Kfz.251, Kettenkrad, Kubelwagen and Hetzer all came from Bruce Crompton.

http://www.axistrackservices.com/

Given the attention to accuracy this halftrack is likely to be a White M3A1.

Fisher M4 A2 'Sherman'

In the film it is supposed to be an M4A3 but the actual tank is the very same A2 as here, which I incorrectly suggested was an A3, Doh!

/vehicle_199286-Fisher-M4-A2--Sherman-.html

The one next to it with the cast hull is an M4A1

/vehicles_make-Pressed+Steel_model-M4+A1.html

One of the other ones is an M4A4 which belongs to Jim Clark called "Sloppy But Safe"

Vickers-Armstrong FV 4204 Chieftain
Tank Overhaul (2006-2009)
Leyland motors was the design parent of the Chieftain tank in 1956, production was undertaken by Vickers in Elswick and Royal Ordnance (RO) in Leeds (which was then bought by Vickers).

The Chieftain ARV was Designed by RO and Military Vehicles and Engineering Establishment, and production undertaken by Vickers at Elswick.

While Leyland did the original design subsequent production and development was undertaken by Vickers who subsequently became the design authority (technically now that would be BAE Systems, but I don't think we'll go there).....

Rightly or wrongly the company that manufactured the vehicle is listed on IMCDB not the design company, leading to Sherman, T-34 and T-55 being all over the place, but I guess you've got to have a system. :)

Chrysler M4 A3 E8 'Sherman'

It isn't an M50 as they used the earlier style turret. The M51used the T-23 turret but the gun was ridiculously long so my money is an M4A3E8. 2014-10-12 21:55

ZTS-Martin T-54
Tank Overhaul (2006-2009)
janek wrote It's very possible that this tank came from Czech Rep. or Slovakia. Otherwise, the owner could paint on it a big red star. :) However, there is a tank in Swiss museum - a Czech made T-54 with Polish markings.


Very true, the Czech and Polish ones tend to be a lot better built and cared for than the Russian ones, it is very difficult to tell from a single pic, but the flat machined spot under the sight appears on quite a few Czech ones.
