The Haunted Tank was a feature of DC Comics war stories created by Robert Kanigher that appeared during the Silver Age of comic books. It focused on J.E.B. Stuart, who rode in a tank with the U.S. Armed Forces in Europe during World War II. Jeb was a descendant of Confederate General Jeb Stuart, whose ghost haunted the tank, and guided it through enemy territory without a scratch.

First appeared in G.I. Combat #87 (1961). Haunted Tank was drawn by Russ Heath, and later Archie Goodwin. It was not a regular feature, and never got its own title. Appearances:
