The ultimate evolution of the M-26 Pershing, the M-60 first entered service in 1960. Marine units were equipped with the M-60 up to Operation Desert Shield, and it is still used internationally. Like many western tanks of the time, most versions mounted the British L7 105mm gun.
The exception was the A2 model which featured an unfortunate gun/missile launcher. Perhaps counter intuitively, the future was an old technology, guns, not missiles.
