TK2045S - Takom
The M60A3 tank was introduced in 1980, and phased out by 2005, although the foreign sales model remains in use by a number of nations.
The M60A3 featured a redesigned wedge-shaped turret with improved ballistic protection, weighed 58 tons and was served by a crew of four - commander, gunner, loader, and driver. The A3 features a laser rangefinder, solid state ballistic computer, crosswind sensor and the power of the turret motor was improved from 5hp to 10hp.
Later production A3s feature a muzzle reference system, a halon fire extinguishing system, and an engine exhaust smoke system. Steel wheels were used again since they were more cost efficient. It is powered by a 643hp Continental AVDS-1790-2C, 12-cylinder diesel engine with a General Motors CD-850-6A transmission.
The range and speed stayed approximately the same as the original M60, 300 miles (482km) up to 30mph (48km/h). It is armed with a 105mm M68 main gun, commander's cupola-mounted .50cal M85, and a co-axial 7.62mm M73, M219, or M240.

There is a bathtub-style lower hull, two rubber band tracks, two steel pins to join their ends, one brass Photo Etch fret with mesh for the turret basket, one decal sheet with markings for four tanks.
