From the Vault: PS Magazine articles on M60 Tank

Today we present a couple articles from PS Magazine detailing the maintenance and operation of the M60 MBT.  The first article is a three part series called “Your M60” which ran in 1961.  The second article is a two part “Be Your Own Inspector” article which appeared in 1966.  PS Magazine is an illustrated “comic” style magazine put out by the US Army since 1951 to teach soldiers best practices in preventative maintenance.  These articles might be a trip down memory lane for any retired tankers that frequent this site.  For others, these articles may impress upon them the complexity and work required to properly maintain a cold war era MBT.

  1. This reminds me of the little handbooks “PMCS Monthly”. I loved reading those.

    Does anyone else remember those?? Do they even still do that anymore? I doubt it…
