M60 Main Battle Tank

The M60, a descendant of the M47 and M48 Patton tanks, was the first American tank to be given the designation "Main Battle Tank".   The M60 series of tanks served the US from 1960 through 1991 before being replaced with the M1 Abrams tanks.  Over 15,000 M60s were produced; with the M60A3 being the final production variant.  The "TTS" suffix to the M60A3 model designation stands for "Tank Thermal Sight" for tanks fitted with the AN/VSG-2 thermal sight.

Comments about M60 Serial and Registration Numbers:

1. Serial Number (SN) - It is stamped on top of the left front towing lug and also on the left side of the upper engine deck. Many M60 tanks have two serial numbers; the original one as built and also either an Anniston Army Depot (AAD) rebuild SN (which ends in an A) or a Mainz Army Depot (MAD) rebuild SN (which ends in a M).

2. Registration Number (RN) - It is stamped below the left headlight and sometimes on the left side of the upper engine deck along with the serial number. It is also known as the "USA Number".

3. The SN and RN for each vehicle is listed in the chart below, if known. The original source of this website's SN's and a few RN's is Neil Baumgardner's The USA Historical AFV Register; and these SN's & RN's are listed in the chart below with an asterick(*). As the SN & RN of each M60 is confirmed with a photo on this website from an on-site visit the asterick is removed.

There are 107 known M60s on display in Wisconsin.  They are at the following locations:
