What was particularly characteristic of this vehicle was the completely newly developed turret with a narrow profile. The main weapon was the 152mm cannon/launcher combination M48, which, in addition to normal ammunition, could also fire the MGM-51 Shillelagh guided missile.
A total of 526 M60A2 were built on M60A1 chassis and entered service from 1972.
Due to numerous problems with the vulnerable technology and the emerging superiority of modern conventional cannon armament, the vehicles were taken out of service again in 1983. Some of the chassis were later converted to M60 bridge-laying tanks.
