This is a re-release model of the M60A3 tank. Together with the M1 Abrams, the M60A3 formed the core of U.S. tank forces during the 1980s. It featured a cast iron chassis that was inherited from the M48 tanks that first appeared in the 1950s, and was powered by a super-charged air-cooled diesel. The turret, too, was manufactured from cast iron, and was mounted with a 105mm gun with thermal sleeve to provide protection from barrel distortion. Other technologically-advanced additions at the time included a laser-based rangefinder and ballistic computer, allowing the M60A3 to pack a fearsome punch. Production began in 1978, and the 3,600 examples produced went on to fulfill a leading military role for in excess of 20 years.
    • The turret depicts the cast iron finish of the real tank
    • The model can be assembled with or without thermal sleeve attached to the main gun
    • Modelers can choose to construct the model with open or closed crew hatch
    • The driver's hatch is movable
    • An authentic suspension is recreated using separate parts
    • 3 sets of markings and a commander figure are included with the kit
