The Phoenix Project addresses both immediate and emerging operational threats to the M60 Main Battle Tank using a modular and flexible approach to improve shoot-on-the-move capabilities, as well as increased lethality, mobility, and survivability. These upgrades are achieved at low technical and operational risk and at low cost.
True shoot-on-the-move capability, day/night target acquisition, and improved first round hit probability are achieved
with Raytheon's Integrated Fire Control System (IFCS) upgrade.
Significant improvement in the firepower and lethality of the current M60 platform is achieved through the replacement
of the M60 105 mm rifled cannon with RUAG Land Systems L50 120 mm smooth-bore Compact Tank Gun (CTG).
Improvements in M60 acceleration and cross-country capability are achieved with the mobility upgrade provided by
General Dynamics Land Systems.
Survivability is improved through the addition of the armour protection scheme for both the M60's turret and the hull.
The protection scheme can be reconfigured to changing threat conditions.
