Willys MB 'Jeep'
If You Go Down in the Woods Today (1981)
Well it is likley to be either a Ford or Willys Jeep, as all the rest seem to be in here as Willys and you can only tell a difference if you look at the front crossmember it gues it can go down as a Willys.


Incidentally this one appears to be marked as a US one as it has the US style siren on the wing and bodge tape over the "USA" and Allied Star markings on the bonnet and rear quarter.

Ward Lafrance unknown
Diesel (1985)
I agree it looks a lot like a Ward Lafrance

1964 ZTS-Martin T-55 A
The Interview (2014)
It is not an AM2 so I would give it the same details as

Volkswagen unknown [Typ 2 / T1]
N.N. (1990-1995)
This is an early "Barndoor" type split that dates between 1951 and 1954, after 1955 they had a peak over the windscreen. 2014-06-16 17:22
1964 ZTS-Martin T-55 A
The Interview (2014)
With that box on the side of the turret it seems pretty conclusively a Czech T-55A

Link to "commons.wikimedia.org"

None of the manufacturers available is the Czech one though so probably best to leave that as unknown uless anybody knows for sure

Fisher M4 'Sherman'
Verboten! (1959)
They look a mixture of early and mid production M4A3s with 75 mm guns, so should be one of these....

BMW R 75
Noi, cei din linia Întâi (1985)
Right first time, it IS a Zündapp KS 750 and not a BMW, you can tell by the external frame round the tank and the toolbox by the back wheel.

FMC M113
A Country Practice (1981-1994)
Yep, I agree 2014-05-23 14:09
1964 ZM Labedy T-55
Border (1997)
That looks like a Tiran, an old T-55 upgraded by the Isrelis with a T-55 turret hull and fume extractor on the gun like that on a T-62,

Cadillac M41 'Walker Bulldog'
The Last Escape (1970)
It might be trying to portray a T-34, but the hull looks very similar to these M41s.....

Cadillac M41 'Walker Bulldog'

M41 Walker Bulldog with a made-for-movie turret?

1964 Volkswagen Sedan [Typ 1]
All Saints (1998-2009)
True, the engine lid can be changed pretty quickly, but the dirt and paint match and if cars are only going to be identified by the details that can't be unbolted there will be an awftwul lot of unknowns around :). The dashboard and windows are correct for 1958 onwards, the lack of semaphores is correct for 1960 onwards, so it is very unlikely to be a reworked split or oval. In the sixties Australian built cars retained old details longer than their European versions so can look older than they are, but all of the visible details seem to correspond to an Australian built '64 or '65, unless any more pictures turn up that is probably as close as you can get. 2014-05-12 22:53
1964 Volkswagen Sedan [Typ 1]
All Saints (1998-2009)
If it is an Aussie CKD (Completely Knocked Down) car the age characteristics are a little different from the German ones. Which kind of fits with the <1964 small windows but >1965 numberplate light.

According to http://members.netro.com.au/~vwcc/mathews.htm

1964 cars had a wider number plate light, wider front blinkers

1965, when German cars got bigger windows, better wipers...Aussie cars kept the older body

1966 Beetles .... had a diagonal "1300" badge on the engine lid.

So you can probalby narrow it to 1964 or 1965 as there is no evidence of the badge.

Synomosia sti Mesogeio (1975)
Yep I aggre, post-war modification on a Kübelwagen

2014-05-08 14:43
Volkswagen Kübelwagen Replica [Typ 82]
The Monuments Men (2014)
They are very good replicas, probably based on type 181 Trekkers as they are a little too chunky at the front compared to the real thing.

PPS OT-810 Modified as Sd.kfz.251
The Monuments Men (2014)
Difficult to be sure without a better view of the tracks, but agree it is far more likely to be a modified OT-810 than an original Sdkfz 251

Pressed Steel M4 A1
The Monuments Men (2014)
Almost, Sherman M4A1(76)W Sherman with (VVSS)

you can tell it is an A1 from the (curved) cast hull the A2 was welded (flat). Its difficult to know the manufacturer, but here it is listed as pressed steel....

The Monuments Men (2014)
This is the General Motors C15TA armoured truck


has the same cab as the Chevy Otter armoured car but the truck back is the giveaway.

Looks very similar to this.....

2014-05-01 14:13
Leyland A34 Comet
Look at Life: The Price of Valour (1964)
Although the hull and turret are correct for a Comet, the gun is way too short, possibly it is an old one used as a driver training vehicle. 2014-04-18 23:23
White M2 Halftrack
McHale's Navy (1962-1966)
I've just checked the Hunnicutt Half-Track bible (ISBN 0891417427) and that agrees with you, it is an M2

Only the M2s had this locker and catch on the sides and not the M3s

Yep, probably one of these.....

Yep looks like it

2014-02-24 22:37
BMY M74 Tank Recovery
Patton (1970)
I agree, this is an M74; the M32 didn't have the front dozer blade, the box structure below the jib is also only on the M74. The other ways to tell are the M32 has a horseshoe shaped turret whereas the M74's is kind of hexagonal. 2014-02-24 22:35
Cadillac M41 'Walker Bulldog'
Patton (1970)
That is an M41 Walker Bulldog. The fake Rocket Calliope on top was occasionally used on Shermans but not on the Chaffee (that this is portraying)

2014-02-24 22:29
Fisher M10 'Wolverine'
Diplomatie (2014)
That'll be an M10 Tank Destroyer

2014-02-24 22:15
White M16 Halftrack
Sengoku jieitai (1979)
It is a White Halftrack, which has the cut outs in the side for the Maxim anti-aircraft turret so it would have originally been a White M16, I think they retained that designation after the gun was removed too as all of the load area was very different to that of the standard M3A1.

Made for Movie M5 'Stuart'
Zone Troopers (1985)

Probably based on a Universal Carrier (especially given the right hand driving position)

Cadillac M41 'Walker Bulldog'
Alarm für Cobra 11 - Die Autobahnpolizei (1996-2014)
It is an M47, with the turret traversed tot he rear of the vehicle


These vehicles have a large turret bustle, which acts both as counterweight and ammunition storage and can also have a box on the back making it look even bigger. This one seems to have some non-standard applique armour added to the bustle, presumably to increase protection for the ammunition.

Uralvagonzavod T-34/85
Gosudarstvennaya granitsa (1980-1989)
Yep definitely T-34/85, it has the larger cast turret.

The Fall Guy (1981-1986)
I'm no expert on these but it looks a lot like a Fergie

White M3 Halftrack
Bitka na Neretvi (1969)
If it is the same vehicle the front roller has been removed in this shot, either way I think it is the same type.....

2013-08-28 14:12
White M3 A1 Scout Car
Bitka na Neretvi (1969)
With the roller on the front I think it is more likely to be a modified version of a White M3 Scout Car

2013-08-28 14:09
Made for movie Type 97 Chi Ha
Empire of the Sun (1987)
I think it is supposed to be a Type 97 Chi Ha


But looking at the wheels and front hull it is made from a French AMX-13
