The Duel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Season 3, Episode 68, "The Duel": When the truck first blows its tire, it is in a very muddy, watery patch of road. Subsequent scenes show the road is dry except under the truck where the truck driver is trying to jack up the truck to change the blown tire.

The Duel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Season 3, Episode 68, "The Duel": Opening shot shows a "German" tank with the commander's cupola on the left side of the turret. As the "German" tank is really an M-41 Walker Bulldog from the Korean/Vietnam era, the cupola should be on the right side of the turret as the majority of American tanks since WWII have that feature. Obviously, the film was flipped.

The Duel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: The German tank has its main gun traversed to the rear of the tank as Sgt. Saunders is trying to climb aboard. A following shot shows the tank with its main gun pointing forward, then the next shot the gun is facing toward the rear again.

The tank used in this episode was a Korean/Vietnam War-era American M-41 Walker Bulldog.
