M60 Patton - Lego compatible COBI 2233 - 605 brick main battle tank
AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER - DUE FOR RELEASE 24TH FEBRUARY
Developed from the M48 Patton, the M60 became America's primary main battle tank during the Cold War with over 15,000 built. Entering the field in 1960, it first saw combat with the Israeli Army in 1973 (the 'Yom Kippur' War) and later in 1982 in Lebanon. It was used by Iran in its war with Iraq in the 1980s. Its greatest use by US forces was in the 1991 Gulf War and, by 1997, it was retired and superseded by the M1 Abrams. However, modified and upgraded M60s still continue to be used today in the armies of a number of countries including Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia with over 3,000 units between them.
