Yeah, the entire game is full of M60s.

Early Abrams is in, too, as well as some leftover M48.

Yes it's an M-60 Patton on the MGB.  There are seven versions of the M-60, an M48A5 Patton and a 105mm Abrams.  Below are some screenshots of the Cold War US tanks in NTC terrain.  Back row are three of the M60s.  Front row is M48 and M1.  I hope a future module brings in the M551 Sheridan and others.

Edited the title to something a little more relevant with regards to search queries.  ;)

That M60A2 with the 152mm gun is a beast in the game, especially at long range.

Here are the M113s in the game set in the National Training Center (NTC) environment.

I just reread Red Storm Rising a few months ago.  Man, was that a fun read, even if Clancy's technology usually worked a bit more reliably than IRL!

Did we ever figure out how effective TOWs or Apaches were against T72s?  Or whether the M1A1's stabilization technology really put it in a different class than anything the Russians could field in terms of shooting on the move? 

I remember a ton of weapons systems that all looked good on paper but never ended up being deployed in combat until 1991, against an undertrained and overbombed Iraqi army that melted like butter in the desert.  After all these years, I can't even remember when the Bradleys finally replaced the M113s, when the F16s replaced the F4s, when the Leopards rolled out en masse, or when the M1A1 got its teething problems worked out.

I do remember, by 1990s, the Danes had at least one tank.  I saw it on a railroad siding once!

Thanks Redwolf! Downloading now. O0
