Factual error: One of the tanks in the column is an M47 Patton which was first introduced in 1951. (01:01:20)

Factual error: The tanks overlooking the river are actually French AMX-105 self-propelled artillery introduced in 1955. (02:01:00)

Factual error: During the German assault on the bridge, one of the destroyed vehicles on the bridge is actually a French Hotchkiss-Brandt CC-2-55. Although it is disguised as a German Marder III tank destroyer, its lower chassis is still easily recognisable as the CC-2-55.

Factual error: In the first shot of the scene when the 30 Corps lines up on the roadside while Fox yells at his men, two of the Sherman tanks can been seen with objects which look like tires beneath their chassis. These two tanks are likely to be mock-ups built on wheeled vehicles. (00:43:30)

Fury (2014)

Factual error: Wardaddy orders Grady to load a smoke shell to blind the Tiger. But Grady takes a shell labelled "HVAP-T M93", which is a high-velocity armor-piecing round from the shelf. When the shell is fired and hit the Tiger, it shows a smoke effect rather than an AP effect. (01:19:20)

Fury (2014)

Continuity mistake: Wardaddy uses a Sturmgewehr 44 throughout the movie. In the first shot where he shoots the teenage German soldier, the Sturmgewehr 44 is missing the front sight hood. The hood appears throughout the movie afterwards. (00:24:05)

Fury (2014)

Continuity mistake: When Parker is engulfed in flames, he pulls out his handgun and shoots through the helmet in his right temple. In the next shot, there is neither a bullet hole nor blood stain on his helmet. (00:24:25)

Fury (2014)

Trivia: The sound effects of high-velocity shells are created by the sound of spinning Frisbees taped with whistles mixed with sound of real shell pass-by.

Fury (2014)

Factual error: In the hedgerow battle, the Fury tank platoon face off with a German MG 42 machine gun and two 7.5 cm Pak 40 anti-tank gun. Each of these guns opens fire only after the previous one gets knocked out. In a real combat situation, all of the guns would open fire at the same time and establish a cross fire, effectively suppressing the ground troops and tanks from advancing. (00:31:35 - 00:33:30)

Fury (2014)

Factual error: When Fury enters a village and faces a field gun attack, Sgt. Collier orders through the tank radio "Throw some Willie Pete in that ground floor." While white phosphorus has been used for a century, Willie Pete as a slang term for it only dates from the Vietnam War. (00:48:05)
