Thread: Preparing for the worst...Reforger M60A3

Nice, but the TC hatch does not lay that flat.

Don't go overboard on distressing the roadwheels.

I'm trying to remember if we had a BFA on the 85.

We had them in 1AD and I hated them!

I've heard that the bustle rack is a bear.

Turret bustle= bustle rack

Jeff,

Ours were empty.

remember that the left blister is empty-the LRF was mounted only on the right side.

on many tanks the M85 deflector was missing as it's not needed-no searchlight on a A3.

A good pic of the series 200 lock used on the loaders hatch when the vehicle was not being used.

I've always seen this lock being used in this position but never on the sponson boxes.

Gaiter= accordion

From what I remember, the round is most influenced by wind the first 10 feet from the muzzle of the gun. Hence, that's why the wind sensor is at the rear of the turret.

We used ours for bore sighting only-I never once worked with the infantry.

The PE strip by the fender is rubber if I remember correctly.

Don't forget the cable for the grunt box!

One lock on the sponson box, usually the middle, is fully in the lock position. There also should be a lock on each sponson box.
