Is it from the movie Patton? Looks like Kasserine Pass to me.

Split second too late

Both Battle of the Bulge and Patton were filmed in Spain. And they borrowed tanks from the spanish army.

Battle of the Bulge tried to pass off Chaffees as M4 Shermans too.  I mean they seriously couldn't find a few working Shermans?

Well, Russian directors were lazy too... But for "White Tiger" they ordered Tiger I model with additional elements to make Tiger P if needed. It took six months to build one from... Nothing. Usually they just used one working Tiger I for close shots and T-series with cupboards for panorama...

Its from this movie

http://de.wikipedia....bell_in_Uniform

The Background text says:

Quote

Für die Darstellung der deutschen Panzer diente das amerikanische Modell M47, als amerikanische Panzer der M48. Beide tragen den NATO-Codenamen "Patton".

Patton M48 tanks were used to portray american tanks. Patton M47 tanks were used to portray german tanks. (Not a very bright idea if you ask me)

While i was watching the movie the first time and saw the tanks. I heard them talking about german Tigers attacking.. saw the pictures and though: "So where the fuck are the Tigers?"

lololol, it makes me wonder why they didn't just build cardboard versions around them, would've made them at least look vaguely German.
And it does annoy me when massive budget movies like Saving Private Ryan don't even use the right tanks, its not as if they could afford it!

At least Band of Brothers uses the real deal for the most part

And they don't.

The Tiger is a mock-up, the Jagdpanther as well (T-54 build afaik).  And the Stug uses the wrong suspension system, only the Shermans are good. The SKFz 251 in both BoB and SPR are historically correct though.

Look, there's only 1 Tiger I in the world that still runs, you're not gonna bring it to a movie set. The one SPR is a Tiger I mock up build on a T-34 model, the narrow tracks give it away that it isn't a Tiger I.

In Force Ten from Navarone, the germans use T-34/85's in Yugoslavia, now that might work as they could have captured tanks to be used on less important battle fields like fighting partizans. You're not gonna use Panthers or Tigers for that. In the movie "Iron Cross" the russians use T-34/85 which makes sense as we're in 1943. Those films both did it right.

I did say, "for the most part".

Only 1 working Tiger is a problem yes, which is why mockups should be used which are no wehere near as expensive to use as actual historical vehicles. Especially when transportation costs (shipping a Tiger to Spain for Patton would be a hell of a lot of money), maintenance costs, running costs etc etc are taken into account.
