they did indeed capture halftracks on both sides from the enemy and paint them in their colour shemes. the tanks are the funny part 😉

The tanks look nothing like they are supposed too. Got a real kick out that.

The large tanks were American M 48 Pattons , the smaller tank the guy slid under was an American Walker Bulldog , I forget the M number . Seems parts of the movie were shot in Spain so probably vehicles from the Spanish Armed forces ( they also supplied tanks for the movie Patton ) Always wanted to kit bash a US M3 Half Track to look like these “German ” vehicles . I wonder if the same movie company made the film , Raid On Rommel , they seem to use all the same vehicles

Nah, this movie is a classic. It somehow rises above its cheesy flaws. Historically it is beyond absurd, but that’s not the point.

Well… I’m not sure of all I just viewed… but darn it was awesome! That tank slide stunt looked absolutely dangerous, but was also a showcase of old school film making, there’s real danger there! That is what’s missing from the modern films in scores. Funny that, more risk more reward!

But can George Peppard hit anything? Least he can make his own tank

My favorite irony in this vein is the movie Patton, where “Patton” fights German M48 tanks named … Patton. 😀

I don’t think I need to watch the movie after how much the trailer showed. Plus the movie looks like it has Limburger cheese levels of funk.
