    That was a rather different movie.
    Played at 2X speed that Tiger Tank was moving around like a TW.

    I watched the entire movie. I had to stop it a few time to catch up on the reading but all in all it was interesting. The ending is not what I expected it to be but it was still good. Also a lot of Lend/Lease stuff in the movie.

    Here is one I found interesting. It is about the Chinese civil war and is based on a true incident.
    For all you gun nuts, remember this is a Chinese movie, how many American made surplus rifles can you identify? I think the army back then used what ever weapons they could get their hands on and the movie reflexes that.

    I think the Russian white tiger movie had a pretty feeble story line. Some nice footage of T 34s of various different models, some of which were probably not WW2 vintage.
    But then The movie Patton used American tanks of post Korean War models. It is very difficult to obtain originals. As for American tanks, When they become obsolete they
    get used for targets in training areas. I know because I have shot up many of them in my time in early M-60s. I know that the Russians used to send theirs to lesser countries that were their allies or at least had the money to buy them. The tiger in the movie looked to be a WW2 leftover and it may have been an original. A few of them found their way into the arsenals of third world countries after WW2, it may have been one of these or one resurrected from a Russian junk yard. I am sure there were plenty of them left in Russia after the war.
    My vote for the best tank movie ever goes to "Fury" starring Brad Pit. Who ever conjured up the personalities of the tank crewman in that movie hit the nail on the head.

    I watched the first 12 minutes of the Chinese movie. It looked pretty realistic and well filmed, I'll watch the whole thing later. I did see a variety of weapons, American Springfield's, I thought I saw a Brit Lee Enfield in one mans hands, and there seemed to be some Russian Bolt actions of WW2 vintage. The submachine guns were probably Russian.
    I would bet that the wide variety of weapons was intentionally used by the movie makers. After all this was a movie about civil war. Civil wars usually have one side making do with what ever they can get their hands on while the big government troops would be more uniformly armed. The potato masher grenades may have been German but other countries used them too. The smaller grenades could have been British or American. China at the end of WW2 had a plethora of weapons and ammunition given them by the allies in WW2.
    After things stabilized a few years later they made their own copies of SKS and other Russian weapons.

    Keep on the look out for a Johnson -- it competed with the Garand to be the US Army rifle. A small number of Johnsons were used by the Marines in the Pacific and at least one found its way into this movie production.

    Elime, what is the name of the movie that you posted, it wont show up for me, just a black square. I noticed a lot of the lend/lease vehicles in it which I thought was a good touch to make it into the movie. Phelonius, if you look at the Tiger tank more closer, I don't think that's its a Tiger at all, Most Tigers were destroyed During the War, so many movies have replica's of them built on Sherman and other tank chassis. This one looks like its on a T-34 or maybe an IS series tank because of how far forward the Turret looks in the side shots.
