Can M60A2 be add in the game?

If the M60A1 is coming to the game, and the m551 is in the game too. Can we gat the M60A2 with the 152mm main gun?

 

The M60A2, nicknamed the "Starship" due to its "Space Age" technology, featured an entirely new low-profile turret with a commander's machine-gun cupola on top, giving the commander a good view and field of fire while under armor but spoiling the low profile. It featured a 152 mm (6.0 in) main gun similar to that of the M551 Sheridan light tank, which fired conventional rounds as well as the MGM-51 Shillelagh anti-tank missile system. The fitting of a CBSS (closed breech scavenger system), which used pressurized air to clear the breech after each shot, solved the problem of unburnt propellant from the main gun rounds fouling the barrel and pre-detonating subsequent rounds.

I'm all for it, but definitely not before the BR cap is raised to at least 9.0. 7.0 and 7.3 BR vehicles would stand absolutely no chance against it and most 7.7 BR would have serious troubles to deal with it - well all except Brits of course ;)

Oh yes please...

 

Day one wallet warrior right there, even if it was a awful tank IRL.

Not really. Armour is worse than on the normal M60, and one might argue the gun is less effective.

The turret's really damn good though. 40 degrees a second traverse rate and almost 300mm turret armor. That's pretty scary, though it will be compensated by the muzzle velocity of the shells being low for such a high BR.

That turret armour is about the only thing it has going for it over a normal M60A1, so I think that with the low muzzle velocity balance the vehicle out.

Which is why I don't mind it being in-game.

 

SEE GUYS? I DO SUPPORT STRANGE TANKS SOMETIMES.

I vote yes! It adds nothing new but instead acts like a better, slower M551 Sheridan! I agree it should be top BR in game though.

It's nothing OP really, just the same thing as a Sheridan with some more armour and way less mobility. And we all know how mobility is more important than armour in top games.

Nope why because its a 1980s tank and the game cut off at the 1970s.

The cutoff is technology mostly, dates don't matter for gameplay.

 

And still you are wrong, it's from 1969, the M60A3 is from 1980....
