The M60 is a tier 3 Main Battle Tank originating from the United States, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked from the M48A3, and leads to the M60A1.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy armor : this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

With a well-designed turret and ample gun depression, the M60 serves as a viable ridge poker and hull down defender that can also brawl in a pinch. While its hull armor is mediocre at best and its mobility is lacking, it compensates for this with a relatively high rate of fire and good gun handling, along with being one of the first vehicles in the game to offer ERA protection.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent gun depression
  • Well sloped and armored turret

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Poor hull armor
  • Poor mobility

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

To compensate for the slow speed, upgrading to the AVDS 1790-2A Diesel Engine will provide a moderate mobility boost. Upgrades to the firepower should be considered next, as the long-range capabilities of the vehicle can be boosted by the accuracy and ammunition upgrades offered.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats.
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation

History[edit | edit source]

Created by the United States, this main battle tank was developed from the M48 Patton as a tactical upgrade against Soviet vehicles. The M60 was produced between 1959 and 1980, with almost 900 units produced and sold to various governments. Entering active service in 1960 with an eventual phase out starting in 1997, this vehicle has participated in combat primarily in North Africa and Western Asia. Although the M60 has the "Patton" designation, it was never officially given the title, as the U.S. government did not consider it a stand-alone vehicle.
