    A Mysterious "Fury" Photo?

    Post by woofiedog on Sat Jan 09, 2016 7:37 pm

    Have a question for the community here concerning a photo that is suppose to be a real Sherman tank named "Fury".  The photo was stated to be taken during the Operation Cobra, July 25, 1944 thur July 31, 1944.




    The question is...

    Is this a "real photo" of a Sherman tank that is named "Fury"? Smile

    Or...

    Is this a "photoshopped photo" of a Sherman tank made to look like a real "Fury" named Sherman tank? cheers

    All or any opinions or thoughts concerning this photo are welcomed. Very Happy

    Have some information that may help confirm that this is a real photo of a Sherman tank named "Fury".   Basketball

    M4(76mm) Sherman Medium Tank 1943-65, by Steven Zaloga, Jim Laurier.

    Quote...Prior to Operation Cobra the First US Army instructed it's tank units to paint their armored vehicles in a pattern of black sprayed over the lusterless olive drab.

    And that Sherman named "Fury" has an overspray of camo paint. cyclops

    Also notice the camo paint on this Sherman named "Hurricane" with the drawing and a real photo.







    Another Sherman tank named "In the Mood" with the same camo paint scheme.  Smile

    http://www.usarmymodels.com/MANUFACTURERS/DML/dml6083.html

    Quote... Due to the surprising failure of the US 75mm guns to penetrate German tanks, a call was made to send over the new 76mm armed tanks as replacements. Pool received one of the first 102 tanks sent over in July 1944 as a replacement. Being in Item Company, 3rd Battalion, 32nd Armor, he gave the tank an "I" name – "In the Mood."

    "In the Mood" was painted olive drab with black disruptive stripes per the 1st Army standardized camouflage recommendations. It had no frontal bumper codes nor the previously used yellow turret codes (as it was a replacement it does not appear to have ever carried them), the name in white centered under the turret on each side, and the serial number USA 3070713-S (for radio suppressed ignition harness) on the rear sides. The tank did carry the "circled star" marking on top of the front of the turret.
