    Sherman Tank Logo's

    Post by woofiedog on Sat Jan 09, 2016 2:15 am

    Here is a photo that look's to be of the real "Fury tank and crew" that was taken during Operation Cobra, 1944. Cool



    Here are some other Sherman's with logo's from US, US Pacific, French and German units.

    Great pictures!
    As for logo "Fury", then I think it's a photoshop, coz letters looks a very accurate. I'm ready to make one round scotch bet bounce

    I'll take that bet, but for a round of Baker's Bourbon! Basketball

    I do believe the name "Fury" was painted on the side of that Sherman is real for that time period of the war. The caption states the photo was taken during "Operation Cobra 25–31 July 1944. And that looks to be a fresh crew and Sherman to the battlefield with little signs of battlefield wear and tear. Also those trooper's riding on the tank are in fairly new field uniforms and are carrying a lot of extra gear that they would not be carrying after some time out in the frontlines. Wink

    Here are a few more Sherman's photos that also have that stenciled look that would be made in England, while waiting to be shipped over to France before or just after the D-Day landings.

    One other fact comes to mind, would be that same "painted name", I "bet" would latter be painted out some it would not be an aiming point for German tank crews or anti-tank gunner's. Twisted Evil  

    Below are two Sherman photos of the very same time period, that have that "stenciled painted logo" look to them. Also there seems to be two different "Hurricane" named Sherman's. One other item is that they also have a "camouflage paint scheme" that matches the "Fury Sherman's" paint scheme.  Wink





    A hand painted Sherman logo...



    Can almost taste that chilled, refreshing first sip of Bourbon going down now! Basketball
