2nd Armored WARDADDY 1st Patt Tanker
2nd Armored 'WARDADDY' 1st Pattern Tanker jacket.
This recreation of the jacket model worn by the character “Wardaddy” (Brad Pitt) in the movie ‘FURY’ is embellished with high-quality, mil-spec, embroidered 2nd Armored Div shoulder device and sergeant stripes - exquisitely hand-sewn down in cross-hatch stitching.
FURY is set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named 'Wardaddy' commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.

Officially designated as 'Jacket Winter, Combat', the 'Tank' jacket was originally intended for all branches of the U.S. Army as a general issue winter jacket. However, it was re-designated for use only by U.S. armoured troops, hence its nickname - 'Tank' (or 'Tanker') jacket.
