    name='WarFilmBuff']Could be the Battle of the Last Panzer 1969, an Italian made war film with Guy Madison as an American, the tank crew are German.



    Another possibilty is The Last Escape 1970, in which Stuart Whitman and Martin Jarvis!! are Allied agents in Europe, they are chased by both German tanks and a Russian tank in a large forest, this chase sequence forming most of the second half of the film.



    However I have a hunch it is Wheels of Terror aka The Misfit Brigade 1987. It again featured a German tank crew this time on the Eastern Front with Bruce Davison and David Patrick Kelly amongst the crew. The headlining stars were David Carradine and Oliver Reed, although they both had little more than cameos.


    Now we have a best answer with three possible answers, which one is it

    I think it is The Steel Lady from 1953, but I don't think that's the movie the OP saw on TV. It might be, but The Steel Lady is set after WWII and the hero finds a WWII tank buried in the sand. It's a sort of action adventurer type movie.
