Fury picture

Factual error: During the final battle, Gordo the tank driver calls out, "Panzerfaust, four o'clock!", as he looks through his periscope. He could not have seen any targets at four o'clock, as the driver's periscope could barely rotate towards the eleven and one o'clock positions, close to the left and right front corners of the tank's hull. The four o'clock position would be near the right rear of the tank.

American Sniper picture

Other mistake: After the shoot out at night the American forces are faced with a group of hostile locals, and the team are told to pull out and get in the vehicles. As they drive off we see a back shot of them sitting on the back of the one of the vehicles, but on the right hand side you can see a backpack and part of an American soldier, did they just leave him? (01:12:50)

Saints and Soldiers: The Void picture

Factual error: The three panzers that ambushed the Hellcats are supposed to be Mk. III's with the 50mm gun, but they only had 5 bogie wheels, instead of 6, and no driver or radio operator's hatches.

Suite Française picture

Factual error: When the Germans come to the town a tank rolls through the picture. The first shot shows the tracks, then the whole tank is shown and one can see the tracks again. The turret suggests a Panzer III (which would be accurate for the time). It appears however that the tank is a modified Russian T34 or T55 or something as the road wheels are too big for a Panzer III. (00:13:00)
