The M60 “Patton” is a second generation main battle tank (MBT) introduced in December 1960. With the United States Army's deactivation of their last (M103) heavy tank battalion in 1963, the M60 became the Army's primary tank during the Cold War
The program to develop the M60A1 was approved in early 1960. The M60A1 is the first variant to feature the distinctive "needle-nose" long nosed turret, along with better armor protection, improved hydraulics and AVDS-1790-2A TLAC engine
The M60A1 was in production from 1962 until 1980 and was extensively used by the US Army and Marines Corps. A total of 7,948 M60A1s (all variants) were built. Many of them were later converted to the A3 standard.
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) purchased its first M60A1s (designated E60As per US Foreign Military Sales and Magach 6 per Israel) from the United States in 1971. These E60A tanks served in their original (American) configuration but with the M19 cupola being replaced with the Urdan low profile cupola. At the start of the Yom Kippur War Israeli forces had a fleet of around 150 Magach 6s. They saw action in both the Sinai and Golan Heights. The location of flammable hydraulic fluid at the front of the turret was exposed to be a severe design vulnerability
This Hobby Master die cast replica is a M60A1 Patton MBT in service with the Israeli Defense Force at the Sinai Desert during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. The model features authentic paint scheme and markings, a rotating turret with elevating main gun, realistic non-moving tracks, and an acrylic display case.
