File Description

Here we we have an lovely M60A3 Patton sent in by _Blackbird for the RACS, seems fitting for them to me anyway.

Enjoy.

In 1978, work began on the M60A3 variant. It featured a number of technological enhancements, including smoke dischargers, a new rangefinder and ballistic computer, and a turret stabilization system. All active American M60s eventually underwent the conversion to the A3 model.

The M60A3 was phased out of US service in the early 1990s, but it remained a front-line MBT into the 21st century for a number of other countries.

While overall a considerably less effective tank than the M1 Abrams, the M60A3 did have some limited advantages over some M1 models.

This is the M60A3 medium tank. 
In 1978, work began on the M60A3 variant. It featured a number of technological enhancements, including smoke dischargers,
a new rangefinder and ballistic computer, and a turret stabilization system. All active American M60s eventually underwent the conversion to the A3 model.

The M60A3 was phased out of US service in the early 1990s, but it remained a front-line MBT into the 21st century for a number of other countries.

While overall a considerably less effective tank than the M1 Abrams, the M60A3 did have some limited advantages over some M1 models:

    * The M60A3 had a notably better thermal imaging system than that of the M1 up into the 21st Century, when many M1s had newer ones installed. It was, however, considerably noisier, emitting a loud clicking sound audible several meters outside the vehicle.
    * The M60A3 had an exterior phone for infantry to talk directly to the crew inside. This feature was also installed on some USMC M1A1s in Iraq and is now being incorporated into all active Abrams.
    * The diesel had lower performance, but also had lower cost, maintenance and better fuel efficiency.
    * The exhaust temperature of an M1's turbine is very high, which makes it dangerous for infantry to take cover behind it, rather than the diesel engine on an M60A3.
    * The escape hatch located under the hull of the M60A3 is not present in the M1 Abrams, making it more difficult for the crew to bail out of a battle-damaged Abrams than a M60A3.
    * The M60 series' L68A1 105mm main gun fires a much wider variety of ammunition than the currently used 120 mm smoothbore on the M1 series, including a dedicated HE (High Explosive) round, a flechette round (commonly known as 'beehive') and a White Phosphorus smoke round, among others.
    * The M60 series includes instrumentation enabling indirect fire as ad-hoc artillery if needed.
