Patton - German Tank?
I rented this movie for the historical parts. like battles what kinds of tanks and other AFVs (Armored Fighting Vehicles.) But, when watching the battles, when the Germans are running up next to what are supposed to be German tanks, they aren't German tanks. They are actualy American tanks. I'm not quite sure, because I'm not into modeling many American tanks, but I think they are Patton tanks, and at some points they aren't even painted the right colors.

Assuming this to be true, using the wrong tank is not truly a slip up. Presumably, the producers knew what kind of tanks they were using, and didn't just mistakenly think they were German tanks. Most likely, not very many German tanks survived the war intact or were available by 1969.

Yes they were US issue M-48 pattons. They are not all that unique though they don't look like tha German Panzers and Tigers. The give away are the tracks. The tracks were US standard T-97 tracks. A dead give away.
