Turkey is building the ultimate M-60 MBT...

So let's see.

The Turks have...uparmored it....added APS to fire control/other electronic widgets to it...and now they're adding a mast.

This has to be the ultimate development of the M-60 MBT.

Don't get me wrong.  I have no illusions about it being competitive with other more modern MBTs but as an Infantry Support Tank, I believe it to be extremely COST EFFECTIVE (well can get M1A1s for a song and the German are tossing Leopard MBTs at people...).


I like what they're doing.  It is possible to breath new life into older vehicles. It is possible to field a capable military while being frugal.
