About the Uniform
U.S. tank crew in WWII used a uniform essentially the same as their infantry counterparts, although a tanker's helmet and warm tanker's jacket with fitted sleeves were designed to be used by crews in their cramped vehicle interiors. Goggles were a vital form of protection from dust, and many tank crew also used hoods and overall-style tanker's trousers to keep the cold at bay.
