A U.S. designed main battle tank, eventually replaced by the M1 Abrams (tank) but in extensive use worldwide. The M60 was the last of the "Patton series" tanks, which included the M47 Patton (tank) and the M48 Patton (tank), which were derivatives of the Second World War M4 Sherman (tank).

Its 105mm cannon has been adapted to the Stryker M1128 mobile gun system‎. The M729 (combat engineering vehicle) is a M60 derivative.
