    There’s no trouble that a couple of Army jeeps and .50 caliber machine guns can’t solve!

    Those trucks they shot up were actually carrying Allied POW’s.

    @thatrandomguy53
    Tiger VI ? Those doesn’t exist. Did you want to say Panzer VI, which is the Tiger I ?
    Well, those were not built in large numbers : with the four prototypes and all combat and service versions included, 1350 Tiger I were built. Besides, it’s a very heavy tank, slow and much proner to mechanical failures than its’ weaker, although more reliable, counterparts on the Allies side.
    And the German used very often captured Allied vehicles. So did the Allies.

    Even though they used american half tracks,it is great that they modified them to look more like German ones,rather than just a repaint.

    @Briselance Good point, However in those days films occasionally named Sherman’s with swastikas as “Panzer IV’s approaching”

    trash!

    @Proudnewfoundlander1 I stand corrected: Jalbert was French Canadian in real life; he only played a Cajun on COMBAT! (This explains how Caje got to be such an expert skiier, a skill he sure as heck didn’t learn down in the bayous of Louisiana!)

  14. terentii says:

    @Proudnewfoundlander1 I think you’re confusing real-life Brit Gary Raymond (“Sgt. Jack Moffitt”) with real-life Cajun Pierre Jalbert (“Caje” on COMBAT!), probably because they both wore black berets. While it’s possible that Hitchcock’s red kepi was something from the French Foreign Legion, it could also have been from the American Civil War. Troy could well have picked up his non-reg Anzac campaign hat in North Africa, and Pettigrew was indeed a moonshine-runnin- good ole boy from the South!

    The guns on the jeeps look like 50-cal. BMG M2 machine guns but the fireing rate sounds way too fast. Sound more like tommygun speed.

    @cosmicdingo: More like when he was in his 30′s.

    @thatrandomguy53 those veteran German troops were mighty poor shots, also. I know the t.v. shows of that day used USA vehicles with German markings. Must have been due to budget and/or unavailability of said vehicles.

  18. thatrandomguy53 says:

    LOL M3A1′s and American Halftracks with German Balkenkreuz on them, that type of stuff b4 I dont think the germans wud want a M3A1 instead of a Tiger VI

  19. Briselance says:

    @meninagorda
    Those Germans are part of the Afrika Korps, and used many captured allied vehicules. So did the Allies.

    For a WW2 desert series in 1966 this was super crisp clear filmed in great desert locations in Spain and later in California, This show is what popularised the whole WW2 era that came out in the ’60′s worldwide, many movies followed with great interest but soon Vietnam screwed the whole thing up and began decades of decadence. …..Vietnam was definitely the demon of decay
