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.
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.
Corrected entry: When the tank crew is in camp private Ellison calls War Daddy first Sgt Collier. He is wearing Master Sgt stripes.
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.
Corrected entry: 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.Scott215
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.
Corrected entry: 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.Scott215
