Combat Mission Wiki

The M60 series was the second generation of main battle tanks designed by the United States. Although "Patton" was never an official nickname of the tank series, the moniker has been often applied to the M60 as being a descendant of the M48 Patton tank design. Beginning service in 1959 and with eventually 15,000 examples built, the M60 was to be the primary tank of the United States for most of the Cold War. M60 Patton series of Main Battle Tanks can be found in Combat Mission: Cold War.
