M60A3 Patton Tank West Germany 1990s Hobby Master HG5608 scale 1:72 Hobby Master 1:72 Ground Power Series 1:72 Scale Item: HG5608 The M60 was initially introduced in 1960 and often incorrectly referred to as a Patton. The M60 resembled the M48 because it was based on the M48 but with some significant alterations and improvements. M60 has a 105mm Main Gun while the M48’s was 90mm and the front slope was straight compared to the M48’s rounded front plus other modifications. The M60 was the last U.S. tank to use homogenous steel as well as an escape hatch in the floor for the driver. On February 24, 1991 at 04:30 local time Operation Desert Storm began. The ground operation only took 100 hours with 1st and 2nd USMC Divisions fighting their way through more than 100 miles of Iraqi held territory defeating 7 Iraqi divisions, destroying more than 1,600 tanks and armored vehicles and taking over 22,000 prisoners. The M60A1 tanks with Explosive Reactive Armor (ERA) have an extra layer of protection and it extends their life. These added tiles are backed by shaped charges that blow the tiles away when struck, reducing the damage.
