M60 to M60A3 Patton Main Battle Tank (MBT)The M60 "Patton" medium MBT was an effective redevelopment of the M48 medium tank, designed to counter the larger armament of the Soviet Union's T-54 and forthcoming T-62 tanks. Introduced in 1960, the M60 featured a larger 105mm main gun, more angular turret for better protection and a diesel engine. In 1962 the initial design was modified resulting in the M60A1, which boasted a further sloped and elongated turret with thicker armor, laser rangefinder, solid state ballistic computer and a crosswind sensor and stabilization system that allowed the tank to be aimed and fired on the move.
