Hey all. I come seeking knowledge!

I'm starting up a comic this semester depicting the misadventures of a fictional tank crew. characters1.jpg

I'm in need of some story inspirations, so if any of you guys know of any harrowing tales of tank crews and tiger aces, or sites/books I can read some, please hook a brother up!

Try Tigers in the Mud, its the best tanker memoir I know of, written by Otto Carius, who was the 1st, 2nd or 3rd (various sources) top tank ace of WW2

My favorite tank story is actually one during the assault on a city in Germany. The tank commander who was commanding a M36 was told there was a German panther parallel to him on the street adjacent his, only problem was he soon realized this was incorrect and that the Panther was pulling up in front of him from behind a blow out wall, Realizing he was caught in a trap, he ordered his driver to drive the tank forward at maximum speed and ram the Panther, after doing so the panther rolled over on its side, the M36 commander backed up, fire a AT round into the tank and caught the Panther on fire.

read it in a book many years ago, the name I cant recall'

Ill edit this reply instead of posting another. In my opinion McGibs the driver should be totally in-different to the other crewman's cries for his affection, while the gunner and technician are transparent in their lust, the Commander keeps a secret resolve often disciplining the other two for their outrageous behavior especially in times of war, but in secret worships the Driver, who again is dumb as rocks and is indifferent to their pleas for attention.
