tanksoffurym3grantlee550

The M3 Grant/Lee is the latest in our series of WWII tanks from Fury. Used by the Allies in the European, North African and Pacific theaters, the tank was 18 ft. 6 in. long and 10 ft, 3 in. tall and weighed in at 12 tons. There were two main armaments, a 75mm gun and  a 37mm gun, along with 4 .30 Browning machine guns. While the tank provided above-average protection to its crew, the M3 Grant/Lee did not perform well off-road and was replaced by the M4 Sherman.

Fury, the World War II tank movie written and directed by David Ayer and starring Brad Pitt, arrives in theaters October 17. Set in the final days of the European conflict in April 1945, the film follows a Sherman tank and her crew on a mission behind enemy lines. Check out the M4 Sherman here, the Panzer I here, the M3 Stuart here and the Panzer IV here.
