    Tank doesn't has a gunbrake as M4A3E8. So, I think it is M4A3(76)W, which we already have.

    www.guntruck.com/M4A3CoolStuds4GalleryPage.html
    (There is interesting detail. Look on the column - there are ONLY FOUR tanks instead five! I suppose director had exactly only four Shermans for all episode cases).
    Here's more info:
    www.imfdb.org/wiki/Fury_(2014)#M4A2E8_Sherman

    And thanks to will73 we've all tanks name!

    Not all EZ8 have gunbrake. Just like it

    Although fuzzy, but we still can see that it is HVSS.

    Also, according to the below site, Lt Parker's tank that brews up after getting hit with a panzerfaust (the fifth Sherman) is named 'matador'.

    To summarize:
    1. M4A3E8/76(HVSS) - Matador (WIP) or M4(105)HVSS with a T23 turret and 76mm M1A1 gun
    2. M4A3E8/76(HVSS) - Fury (WIP)
    3. М4А2/75(VVSS) - Lucy Sue (ready)
    4. M4A1/76(VVSS)- Old Phyllis (half-finished)
    5. M4A4/75(VVSS) - Murder Inc. (under question)
    In fact, all tanks which took part in the movie were delivered from Britain. Which is strange. There are no any American tank in running condition?

    It was probably just convenient to get them in England from the same place they borrowed the Tiger.

    That will be junk: tires for the mission "Fury". I'm planning to place them near house in the final scene. At this moment object "tires" is undestroyable.

    I'd like to implement the German prisoner soldiers.


    American camp landscape should look like this.

    So, I need at least another big tent with Red Cross and some injured soldiers.

    In SF there are some unused animations, which could be used for the captured soldiers.


    There will be wounded soldier after meeting with Wardaddy.

    Let me guess:
    1. super charge - HE with delay setup
    2. solid shot - AP
    3. smoke - HEAT
    Am I right?

    Hi Lockie !

    I think that "smoke" refers to a smoke shell, designed to produce a smoke screen to conceal the tank, allied infantry... Unfortunately these shells are not modeled in Steel Fury.

    I'm not sure. Do u know know the original name of that shell?
    And what the shell did "Bible" shot at house-hospital? In the movie it is called as "Willy Pete".

    They are. Tiger/Panther/Matilda has mortars with smoke grenades. There are smoke shells at field artillery also. First, they were used in the mission "Thunder".

    It refers to the white phosphorus (WP) smoke shells Very Happy

    See here, for example:

    OK, I see it was exactly "smoke" shell not HEAT.
    HCBI M89, M88 - Smoke Shell
    US M89 White Phosphorus round для 75 mm Gun M2/M3/M6.
    Base emission smoke shell M89 is a blunt-nose projectile with a maximum effective range of 1,600 yards. Its shape makes it difficult to control for deflection and range. It bounces on firm terrain from 100 to 300 yards from the point of strike. Each round burns about 3 minutes. A platoon can screen a 400-yard frontage of average terrain within the effective range of the shell.
    There would also have been a small percentage of 75mm smoke rounds (Shell Smoke MkII or M89) which would have been stowed in the hull an passed to the loader by the co-driver as and when required.

    WP is an incendiary, not just a smoke round. Phosphorus will burn with high intensity and is an effective anti-personnel weapon.

    That's a first backimage. I need a bit of help, which quotes u'd like to see during mission d/l?

    Here's:
    //#01
    Don: They knew we were coming. So they got drunk as lords and they shot themselves at sunup.
    Norman: Why are you showing me this?
    Don: Ideals are peaceful. History is violent.
    //#02
    Trini 'Gordo': In France, we hit the beach right after D-Day and fought through all those fucking hedgerows. We finally broke out into open country. And bypassed all these Kraut divisions. We linked up with the Canadians and British and trapped an entire Kraut Army pulling back to Germany. We fucked them up. With planes and  rtillery. Dead Krauts and horses and busted up tanks and cars for miles. Miles. Your eyes see it but your head can't make no sense of it. We go in there. And for three whole days we shot wounded horses. All day long. Sun up to sundown. Putting down horses. Hot summer days. Ain't smelled nothing like it. The sound of it. Those fucking horses screaming. Black clouds of flies buzzing. Like being in a giant bee hive.;
    //#03
    Boyd 'Bible': You from Missouri?\n
    Norman 'Mashine': No. \n
    Trini 'Gordo': You from Chicago? \n
    Grady 'Coon-Ass': Nah, you're from Arkansas, ain't you?\n
    Norman 'Mashine': No, I'm from Pittsburgh... \n
    Grady 'Coon-Ass': Hey, hush up, man, nobody gives a fuck where you're from.;
    //#04
    Don 'Wardady': I had the best bow gunner in the entire Ninth Army in that seat. Now I got you. I promised my crew a long time ago I'd keep them alive. You're getting in the way of that. It ain't like the newsreels up front.\n
    Norman 'Mashine': I'm sorry. I am trained to type 60 words a minute. I am not trained to machine-gun dead bodies. I am trying my very best.
    //#05
    In WW2 American tanks were outgunned and out armored by the more advanced German tanks. US tank crewmen suffered staggering losses against the superior enemy vehicles.
    It is April 1945. The Allies fight deep in the heart of Nazi Germany, encountering the most fanatical resistance yet. In desperation Hitler declares total war, mobilizing every man, woman and child...;
    //#06
    Boyd 'Bible': Hey, you go to tank school?
    Norman 'Mashine': Tank school? No. I've never even seen the inside of a tank. I'm a clerk typist. I was heading to Fifth Corps HQ, they pulled me off the truck, they sent me here. It's gotta be a mistake.\n
    Grady 'Coon-Ass': A mistake? Army don't make mistakes. It do what it do.
    //#07
    Don 'Wardady': Norman! You cocksucker. Why didn't you take the shot?
    Norman 'Mashine': He was just a kid. I'm sorry. I'm really sorry, Sergeant.
    Don 'Wardady': You see what a kid can do? Look! That's your fault. That's your fucking fault. Next German you see with a weapon, you rake the dog shit out of him. I don't care, if it's a baby with a butter knife in one hand and mama's titty in the other. You chop him up!;
    //#08
    Don 'Wardady': Norman! Get out here! You are no goddamn good to me unless you can kill Krauts. Put a big fat hole in his back. Put a big fat hole in his fucking back.
    Norman 'Mashine': No. It's not right.
    Don 'Wardady': "Not right"? We're not here for right and wrong. We're here to kill them. Why are you here? You're here to kill him. You know why he's here? He's here to kill you. He's here to kill you, Norman. He's here to rip your throat out with a bullet.

    It is a camp (draft version) where Wardaddy's squad will start from.

    Here's a new object in the camp - "Speakers". To announce orders or whatever and the next image with a "captured prisoners".


    I've placed in the camp a targets Smile

    PS
    Camp becomes better and getting a new details. I think would be interesting to make a new mission: Destroy the camp/German "kindness", where camp subject to be destroyed and may be liberate the captured soldiers.

    The camp is almost finished. Though, would be good to place a couple trucks with a fuel.
