Revealing mistake: When Sgt. Troy throws the grenade at the Gestapo agents barricaded behind the table, it is thrown wide right, yet the pyrotechnic explosion is dead center of the table barricade.

The Rat Patrol (1966)

Show generally

Factual error: The tanks, half-tracks and self-propelled guns are modern American vehicles painted in a a bright yellow color rather than a muted desert sand color. The only vehicles which actually did see action in North Africa in WW2 would have been the M-7 Priest Gun Motor Carriage and the M3 half-tracks being used by the Germans in "The Rat Patrol."

Fury (2014)

Factual error: One scene has Sgt. Collier having a conversation with Norman as they are riding on the turret of "Fury" without their tank intercom throat mikes and headphones. The noise of the moving tank alone would cause any conversation to be a shouting match between the two soldiers. Further, they are in column with three other noisy tanks, which would make a casual conversation even more difficult without utilizing their tank intercom system.

Fury (2014)

Factual error: The film shows the American and German tanks firing at each other on the move. Tank warfare doctrine dictated that tanks must be stationary when shooting at a target, to ensure a hit. Some tanks were equipped with stabilizers on their guns to allow firing on the move. All the tanks in "Fury" (German and American) were not so equipped.

Suggested correction: The Sherman was one of the first widely produced tanks to feature a gyroscopic stabilized gun and sight. The stabilization was only in the vertical plane, as the mechanism could not slew the turret. The stabilizer was sufficient to keep the gun within 1/8th of a degree, or 2 mils while crossing moderately rough terrain at 15 miles an hour. This gave a hit probability of 70% on enemy tanks at ranges of 300 to 1200 yards. Yes they did fire on the move, although very slowly.

Suggested correction: This entry is half right. German tank Doctrine dictated that vehicles come to a halt before firing. US Army manuals from the period state that if you are out ranged you charge while firing on the move. All of the M4 variants in the film have single axis stabilization systems and by the point in the war depicted in the film were trained to use it.

Continuity mistake: When Dale is shooting the nail gun at the kids covering behind the Sheriff's jeep, close up shots show the projectiles hitting/shredding the grill and smashing the right side headlight. A couple scenes later the grill and headlight are intact.

Fury (2014)

Continuity mistake: Not more than one to two hours after Wardaddy shaves his face clean in the German ladies' apartment, a closeup shot of him in the tank shows beard growth of 2-3 days.
