I found the battle from the movie Patton and it seems I remembered it wrong. The Germans were using M48s and the Americans were using what I think is a Pershing, maybe a M60

I am amused by Pattons notoriety especially in the movie where you have the Germans creating entire plans around Pattons movements yet in reality he was hardly mentioned in any German communications and completely over looked in the Feb 1944 German war diary on Allied commanders.

An interesting read...

In the Patton film, the tank being used by the "Americans" is the M-41 , so - called Walker Bulldog light tank. A nice machine, fast, maneuverable, armed with a 76mm main gun. An anachronism when it was introduced. Nobody wanted light tanks anymore.

Still, not a bad movie to watch.
