The M60A1 is a tier 4 Main Battle Tank originating from the United States, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked from the M60, and leads to the M60A3 and M60A2 Starship.

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 M60A1 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]

The first upgrade that should be applied to the M60A1 is the RISE ERA package, which massively increases protection against HEAT ammunition, increasing survivability.  Upgrades to firepower should be considered next, to help remove enemies from the battlefield even faster.

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

The first major improvement to the M60 series, the M60A1 features a more angular and significantly thicker steel turret. The hull remained almost unchanged, but the frontal arc and gun were both substantially improved over the base vehicle.

Utilizing an older variation of explosive reactive armor, this upgrade covers the M60A1 extensively along the glacis and the majority of the turret, offering marginal protection from kinetic rounds and a few hundred millimeters of diffusion from HEAT detonation.

History[edit | edit source]

A program in 1960 led to the M60A1, the first major variant on the M60 platform. This American main battle tank was first produced in late 1962, featuring a turret that was both larger and better shaped than the original M60. It stayed in production until 1980, serving for much longer than it was originally intended.
