    It seems they didn't had enough fighter cover at all...

    Yeah, they definitely needed more air cover!

    This movie kept calling the tanks Grants, but they were actually Lees. Basically the same tank on the outside except the Grant had a different turret. The Lee was American and the Grant was British. The Lee is one of my favorite tanks. I was really happy to see them in action in color, it was interesting just how dark the olive drab was and just laying on the dust looked like a relatively simple weathering job.
