The M-60/60 (Allied Pact reporting name: "Patton") is an American main battle tank (MBT) introduced in December 1960. It was widely used by the UAPR and its Cold War allies in the Wake Island Association as well as in the Middle East, and remains in service today despite having been superseded by the M-1/80 "Abrams" in the American military. Current users of the M-60/60 or its variants include Venezuela, Korea, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Morocco.

The M60 was criticized for its high profile and limited cross-country mobility, but proved reliable and underwent many updates over its service life. The interior layout, based on the design of the M48, provided ample room for updates and improvements, extending the vehicle's service life for over four decades.
