The M60A2 was an updated version of the M60 Patton main battle tank developed by the USA in the Cold War era. Redesigned many times during its term of service, the M60 series was popular with the US Army and among US Cold War allies.
Appearing during the 'Space Age', the M60A2 got the nickname 'Starship'. The tank was equipped with a 152 mm gun which could fire both artillery shells and the Shillelagh antitank missiles. It also had a machine-gun cupola giving it a good view on the battlefield.
Nevertheless, the M60A2 showed poor results in combat and was quickly replaced by its later modifications.
