The A1 model entered production in 1962 and included a number of serious upgrades. It had a new reshaped turret offering a better laid out crew compartment, better protection and a more angled shape, with the sides getting narrower towards the main cannon.
It includes two sets of smoke grenade dischargers (one either side of the turret - the control cable ran up the side of the turret, protected by small strips of thin armour plate) and a large spotlight placed over the main gun.
The M68 was fitted with a stabilization system in 1972 (AKA M60A1 AOS “Add-On Stabilization”), which was not effective enough to provide firing whilst on the move, but did allow the coaxial MG to be fired whilst on the move.
