Battle of the Bulge movie was ruined for my by their use of Americn Patton tanks with no attempt to disguise them as German.
The tanks were the stars or the movie for god sakes!
In all fairness finding enough props for the scenes isn't easy to do with authentic equipment. many viewers are likely clueless about a Panther and a T34

Ever noticed on many of the war documentaries , the same war scenes get used over & over. Some not even relevant to the topic.

Movies made today seem to want to try to be more accurate in this way. The WW2 movies that came out after WW2 didn't seem quite so concerned with such accuracy.

Battle of the Bulge, Telly Savalis:



M47

In Kelly's Heroes, its a T34 but its at least disguised relatively well



And saving private ryan



A T34/85 converted for the movie
Saving Private Ryan from what I remember seemed fairly realistic.

A little cardboard and paint would have been worth the effort.
The tank was the star of the movie.
