John Kettler Posted May 13, 2016 Share Posted May 13, 2016 Raytheon may be calling it a M60A3 SLEP (Service Life Extension Program), but it's in many ways practically a new tank: 120 mm L/44 gun, digital FCS, zero timed 950 hp engine, switch from vulenerable hydraulics to electrical drives for turret, apparent netting capability, side armor, turret slat armor and more. Intention is to equal or exceed T-90S in a clash. While it shares certain core similarities with the Israeli developed Sabra (M60T) (second vid) in Turkish Army service, it would be fair to say the Raytheon offering will go much further.
