Seems like with new CGI technology available these days they should be able to do a movie with a vast tank battle like the one John mentioned at Kursk. Heck, there's probably someone working on one right now....
also unfortunately, the best part of this film is not shown on this YouTube video... they show a complete tank assault ( including infantry and air support) from beginning to end.
LOL what about a (sticky bomb) that was used on the tanks tracks in Saving Private Ryan.

That’s a classic, a gold heist wasn’t it, didn’t they use the tank to blow a hole in the wall or, was it the bank safe, it’s been a few years since I’ve seen it?
Bovington isn’t too far from where I live, its in the Dorset area, and during certain times in the year, when walking along the Bournemouth shoreline, you can hear this mild low frequency sound, that sounds like an aircraft going though the (sound barrier) bouncing off the cliff tops, it’s a tone that tickles my ear when I hear it. It’s the tanks firing, doing tests on the tank range and that’s like 10 12 miles away.
I do think the Battle of the Bulge tank sequences were among the best you'll find.
Absolutely. They used virtually every tank that was in existence at the time. A number of them were modified to appear to be the correct model even though they weren't. Those scenes could only be done with CG today, cause there's only a handful of those tanks around that run. It's the only movie I've seen that depicts accurate large-scale tank tactics and formations in the field.
Does Rat Patrol have tanks "hull down" on a hilltop exchanging long range armored piercing rounds with enemy tanks? Or do they have platoons of tanks assaulting dug in troops, with friendly troops providing cover fire?
