Summary

An American M60 Patton moves through a village in West Germany as part of the 1982 Reforger exercise.


by this date it's most likely an M60A3(TTS); also, the vehicle has covers on the smoke grenade launchers on either side of the turret, and that may be the cross wind sensor between the arms of the TC and Loader. The thermal sleeve on the main gun barrel before the bore evacuator is usually removed when the Hoffman device is strapped on, as this vehicle has. Edit This is an M60A1 from the 8th (U.S.) Infantry Division (8th ID). The M60A1 had a stereoscopic range finder, the M60A3 has a laser range finder. The M60A3's laser range finder used the same range finder bubbles (at top of turret on both sides midway back) as the M60A1, but only the right bubble contained any optics.
