      I am inclined to say no, having seen a few pictures of Michael Wittman & they didn't really look like that guy.

          I don't know. Here is a link with a small picture of him. Second one on the right just beneath Otto Carius.

            I have seen photos of him which were taken from the film you see in Youtube, and all these have stated it is Michael Wittman. He had a very young crew, thats why the second guy next to him on the turret looks like a kid.

              I paused video and resized the mswindow for picture of guy with headphones and put it side by side to Killion's avator(?)/picture on the original post. Heads are facing the same way and I'd have to say they are the same person. The eyes are telling.

              From DW's link, they have Wittman listed as 5th overall so why is he the most well known? I've heard of Otto Carius mentioned occasionally but hardly the other guys including #1

                There are several threads where Kurt Knispel's name comes up.
                Just run a search.
