From the Vault: PS Magazine on the M60A2 (1975)

PS mag M60A2While perusing the online archive of old PS Magazine issues, we came across this article on the M60A2 from 1975.  This piece gives some interesting insight into the operation of the US Army’s least successful MBT of the cold war.  Apparently, the turret of the M60A2 was cramped enough to warrant a warning to soldiers with big feet to avoid kicking the gunners panels which could result in knocking “the firing and alignment mechanisms outta whack.”  The article can be viewed as individual images below or the entire issue can be downloaded as a PDF here.



  1. I used to love reading these at my old unit back in the day. When I got on active duty I never saw them.
