Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Highest base view range in-game (together with the M48A1 Patton)
  • Good gun depression
  • Gun has very good accuracy, penetration and alpha damage
  • Overall best gun handling stats in game
  • Better hull traverse and way better mobility than the M48A1 Patton


Cons:


  • Sluggish mobility for a medium tank
  • Worst camouflage of all medium tanks in its tier due to its very large profile
  • Relatively thin armor
  • The giant machine gun on top of turret is a weak spot; However, you can abuse it with constant moving


Performance

The M60 plays very much like an M48 Patton, boasting the same gun depression, damage, and penetration. However, there are some key differences between the two. Overall, the armor on the M60 is weaker than on the M48 Patton, it has a slightly lower rate of fire, and it is slightly larger with even worse camo values. However, to make up for this, the M60 has slightly better mobility and better soft stats ex. aim time, etc.

Because the tank is so large and poorly armored, your best bet is to not get shot in the first place. Along with the usual flanking that a medium tank can do, the M60 is excellent at supporting its team from behind cover. The gun depression, combined with the superb gun handling allows you to pop above a hill and get a shot off before the other team may be able to react. The view range also allows you to spot any other tanks that your teammates may have missed.

Going along with its view range, the M60 can also perform the role of a scout, assuming caution is taken. Because the M60 is such a large and poorly camouflaged target, using cover while spotting is a must. If you try to rush through enemy lines like an ELC, you will quickly find your tank destroyed. You can use the MG turret to your advantage by spotting targets from behind cover while exposing very little of yourself. Your view range alone will also enable you to light enemies that your teammates cannot see.

Historical Info

During the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, a Soviet T-54A medium tank was driven onto the grounds of the British embassy in Budapest by the Hungarians. After a brief examination of this tank's armor and 100 mm gun, British officials decided that their 20 pounder was apparently incapable of defeating it. There were also rumors of an even larger 115 mm gun in the works. Hence there was a need to adopt a 105 mm gun, which emerged as the famed Royal Ordnance L7. This information made its way to the United States, where the Army had been experimenting with a series of upgrades to their M48 Patton tanks. Most were relatively minor, all retaining its 90 mm gun. These experiments were concerned with improving the armor and the introduction of a variety of autoloader systems and upgraded rangefinders.


The T95 program, launched after the Questionmark III conference in June 1954, was the intended replacement to the M48. It featured a host of innovative and experimental components such as its 90 mm smoothbore T208 cannon rigidly affixed to its turret, and its new powertrain and suspension. The burden of developing them however slowed the overall program to a crawl. General Taylor approved of a new tank development program in August 1957. This incorporated many ARCOVE recommendations and foresaw the eventual replacement of the light, medium, and heavy tanks with two types the airborne reconnaissance/assault vehicle and the Main Battle Tank. The MBT was to combine the firepower and protection sufficient for the assault role with the mobility to perform as a medium tank. A tank of the T95 series, armed with a smoothbore cannon and powered by a compression ignition engine, was envisaged by the Army Staff as the bearer of the role of future MBT.

The course of this tank program was the source of widespread debate. The Bureau of Budget (BOB) believed that the Army was not progressing with sufficient speed in its tank modernization program and recommended the immediate replacement of the M48A2. Correctly predicting that the BOB would not approve the procurement of the M48A2 after the fiscal year of 1959, the Deputy Chief of Staff, Logistics (DCSLOG) proposed a tank based on the M48A2 featuring improved firepower and the AVDS-1790 engine. Of course the alternative was to introduce a tank from the T95 series but it remained highly experimental with its compression ignition engine not as developed as the AVDS-1790. An influential group of senior officers, by May of 1958, concluded that the T95 had only marginal advantages over the M48A2. They proposed that the most important improvements, better firepower and fuel economy, could be achieved by mounting a compression ignition engine and a more powerful gun on the M48A2.

In 1957, plans were laid in the US for a universal or all purpose tank. Fulfilling this requirement with an interim tank resulted to the M60 series, which largely resembles the M48 it was based on, but has significant differences. The M60 mounted a 105 mm M68 main gun with the bore evacuator mounted towards the middle of the tube, compared with the M48's 90 mm M41, which mounted the bore evacuator towards the end of the tube right after its T-shaped blast deflector. It also had a hull with a straight front slope whereas the M48's hull was rounded, had three support rollers per side to the M48's five, and had road wheels constructed from aluminum rather than steel, although the M48 wheels were often used as spare parts.

The improved design incorporated a Continental V-12 750 hp (560 kW) air-cooled, AVDS-1790-2 diesel engine, extending operational range to over 300 miles (480 km) while reducing both refueling and servicing. Power was transmitted through a CD-850-6 cross drive transmission, a combined transmission, differential, steering, and braking unit.

The hull of the M60, like its predecessor the M48, could be cast as cast as a single piece or by welding smaller castings. The turret was similar to the M48A2's and was made as a single piece casting although it was modified to accept the new larger diameter cupola and the M116 mount for the 105mm gun. The hull was divided into three compartments, with the driver in front, fighting compartment in the middle and engine at the rear. The driver looked through three M27 day periscopes, one of which could be replaced by an M24 infrared night vision periscope.

The M60 was the last U.S. main battle tank to utilize homogeneous steel armor for protection. It was also the last to feature an escape hatch under the hull. (The escape hatch was provided for the driver, whose top-side hatch could easily be blocked by the main gun. Access between the driver's compartment and the turret fighting compartment was also restricted, requiring that the turret be traversed to the rear).

Originally designated the XM60, the new vehicle was put into production in 1959, standardized as the 105 mm Gun Full Tracked Combat Tank M60 on 16 March 1959, and entered service in 1960. There was a proposal in April 1959 to change the nomenclature to 105 mm gun main battle tank M60; this was however rejected due to a conflict with the Federal Cataloging Agency Policy. Over 15,000 M60s (all variants) were built.
