The M60A1 and A3 were exported to NATO and US friendly countries as either new vehicles or in later years as the US had a surplus stock of these tanks as it was replaced in US Army service by the superior M1 and M1A1 Abrams.
The Super M60 was a comprehensive update package for the M60 Patton series tanks, offered in the early 1980s for the export market to increase the protection, firepower and mobility for the M60A1 and A3. Though this upgrade package offered M60 users an opportunity to dramatically increase the combat power of their tank fleets, no country ever bought the update, and the program effectively ceased by the end of the Cold War. Only one prototype was built.
