Corrected entry: When the tank crew is in camp private Ellison calls War Daddy first Sgt Collier. He is wearing Master Sgt stripes. (00:12:00)

Correction: Collier's arm sleeve rank shows three stripes and one rocker, the insignia of a Staff Sergeant (pay grade E-6), not a Master Sergeant (three stripes and three rockers, Pay Grade E-8). Also, due to the high casualty rate of the tank company, it would not be wrong for Staff Sergeant Collier to be addressed as "First Sergeant (three stripes and three rockers with a diamond in the field between them) " by a new soldier, especially if the "Master Sergeant with the clipboard" referred Norman to report to "First Sergeant" Collier. Since Collier was (presumably) the senior NCO according to time in grade and service, plus the high casualty rates among the tank company NCO's and officers, then Collier would be the "Acting" First Sergeant, despite what his arm sleeve insignia indicates.

Correction: In what scene was a TicTac referenced? I have seen this movie over and over with and without subtitles and nowhere was mentioned a TicTac. The closest thing to hearing "TicTac" was when Gordo is telling a German lady he will take care of her and asks, "Wanna see da tank?", but says it quickly, so it may have sounded like he was saying "TicTac."

Corrected entry: Fury is an M4 Sherman Firefly armed with a powerful 17 pounder gun. Unlike the standard Sherman, the gun carried by the Firefly could and did penetrate the armour of the heaviest German tanks, including the Tiger, at long ranges. In one celebrated encounter a Sherman Firefly destroyed three Tigers during a brief battle which saw the death of German tank ace Michael Wittmann. Fury's rounds would not have bounced off a Tiger at the short ranges shown in the tank on tank battle scene.

Correction: The Sherman tank "Fury" is an American M4A3E8 model with a 76mm main gun, not a British Firefly with a 17-pounder main gun. Unlike the 17-pounder gun, the 76mm would have difficulty penetrating a German Tiger tank's armor unless the Tiger was at close range or exposed its vulnerable side or rear flanks.

The 76mm gun would penetrate a Tiger from the front at distances far exceeding those given in the film. http://i.imgur.com/TQr6d1z.jpg.

Look it up. Tiger tanks were famous for having indents where Shermans hit them head on. No penetration. There's a story of a tiger tank taking 5 direct hits from a Sherman and surviving.

Corrected entry: In the final battle scene, before a shot is fired, the Germans are seen marching along with many Panzerfausts over their shoulders, and yet they are seen unpacking them much later. A few well aimed shots at a disabled tank would have finished the battle very effectively much sooner. Panzerfausts were a very effective anti tank weapon.

Correction: The reason we see the Germans unpacking them is because the soldiers with the Panzerfausts were either killed or busy running away when the tank crew started to shoot. Rather than searching the area for the dropped or lost Panzerfausts, the Germans opted to wait for the cases to be carried from the rear. The German officer even says something like that they will win if they just get to fire them on the tank.

Corrected entry: Wardaddy more than likely would not have a MP43 or ammunition or mags for it. The Automatic rifle Sturmgewehr 44/ Machinepistole 43 was not issued in plentiful numbers as it was an experimental firearm - This is the model Kalashnikov used to design his AK - 47.

Correction: Between 1943 and 1945 there were over 400,000 of these rifles built. Also about 822 million rounds. These were handed out especially to Waffen-SS troops so easy to get a hold of when fighting SS panzer groups.

Corrected entry: The interior of the tank shows a "Mothers Cross" medal. This medal was given to German mothers and would not generally be on a WWII battle-field.

Correction: They're already fighting within German borders, would have passed plenty of towns on the way. There were undoubtedly Mothers Crosses in those towns.

Corrected entry: At the start of the movie when Gordo is holding Red's left hand after his head has been blown off, Bible is in the turret looking at the back of Gordo's head as Gordo sits in the driver's seat. Then the camera pans across and you can see that Bible is looking at the front of Red's corpse, so now Red is facing backwards in the tank. The next shot shows Gordo still holding Red's left hand, but obviously now Red's corpse is once again facing the front of the tank.

Correction: Red is facing the front the entire time. When the camera pans across there is a coat covering Red's body, presumably has been put on by the other crew members, and this leads you to believe that Red is facing backwards. In the following shot (which shows Gordo holding Red's hand), you can see the coat was put on.

Continuity mistake: In the final war scene, when they first run out of ammunition, Grady puts a belt into the coaxial .30, and as he is firing you can see the end of the belt, but in the outer scene when the German is hitting war daddy with a shovel, the coaxial is still firing.

Wardaddy: I had the best bow gunner in the entire Ninth Army in that seat. Now I have you.

Trivia: Staff Sergeant Collier's nickname, "War Daddy" is based on the nickname of real World War 2 Sherman tank commander Staff Sergeant Lafayette G. Pool, who fought with the 3rd Armored Division. Pool survived the war (though he lost a leg from his last combat operation) and died in 1991.

Question: Why did Gordo bring up the horse thing at breakfast?

Answer: Gordo was making a point to Norman that the crew of the "Fury" had seen some horrible things during the Battle of the Falaise Pocket. After wiping out an entire German army there, they were tasked with putting wounded horses out of their misery. The point was that Norman was not there, and did not experience what they had, so Norman could not judge the tank crew's actions.

Scott215

Gordo brought up the horse thing because him and the other (original) crew members were not happy with Don and Norman enjoying a nice, quiet meal without them. He even say's "You weren't there" meaning Don sharing this with Norman when he hadn't yet been through much war time like all of them had, together. They also say "We weren't invited", "Why weren't we invited." The horse story was to get at Don for not inviting them and sharing it only with Norman.
