Turkey's M60T upgrade nears conclusion


12th April 2018 - 11:06 GMT | by Grant Turnbull in London



The Turkish Land Forces is set to complete the modernisation of its M60T ‘Fırat’ main battle tank fleet next month, officials have disclosed.

Speaking at the Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness conference on 11 April, a Turkish industry official said that 120 M60Ts had now been upgraded and that the programme would likely wrap up 'in several weeks’ time.

The official told Shephard that on top of the 120 tanks already modernised, an additional 49 have been earmarked for upgrade work and 12 units will be used as spares. That aligns with the number of M60Ts the Turkish Army is believed to have in its inventory.

In 2002, Turkey signed a contract worth nearly $700 million with Israel Military Industries (now IMI Systems) to upgrade 170 M60A1 tanks to the M60T standard, incorporating a new 120mm gun, explosive reactive armour and updated powertrain.

The Turkish MoD contracted domestic company Aselsan for this round of upgrades, signing a contract at IDEF in Istanbul last year for $135 million.

Modifications improve overall situational awareness and crew protection and include Aselsan’s TLUS laser warning system, a SARP remote weapon station, the ‘Yamgoz’ 360° surveillance system as well as a new air conditioning unit.   

The upgrades are carried out at army maintenance centres around Turkey.

The Turkish Land Forces have not wasted any time in deploying the upgraded tanks, with photos appearing online in February showing the new M60T tanks in Turkey’s Hatay province, close to the Syrian border.

It was reported they were being transported to support the army’s ‘Operation Olive Branch’ mission around Afrin, where it committed troops to fight Kurdish militants of the YPG. A major driver of the modernisation has been protection against the increased threat from anti-tank guided missiles, which have caused multiple casualties during Turkey’s incursions into Syria.

The official told Shephard that it was also expecting a serial production contract for modernising the Turkish Army’s legacy M60A3 variant sometime this year, under what is known as the Euphrates modernisation.

Photos have appeared online showing a prototype of the M60A3 modernisation, incorporating several of the technologies that have also been used for the Fırat including cameras, laser warning systems and the SARP RWS.



Additional upgrades include the addition of angled ERA plates around the turret as well as a new driver vision system, power distribution unit and fire suppression system. An active protection system, likely based on the Ukrainian Zaslon, is also in the works although the industry source said this may not be for another year or two.

Modernising the legacy M60A3 has become a more pressing requirement in recent years as progress on Turkey’s domestic Altay MBT programme has stalled.

Turkey originally received 274 A1 and 658 A3 variants from surplus US stock in the 1990s, according to the SIPRI arms transfer database.

There is also a requirement for modernising the army’s ageing Leopard 2A4, although fluctuating relations between Germany and Turkey has also slowed this effort.

Currently, the Turkish army uses four versions of the American-made M60 main battle tanks including 100 M60A1, 650 M60A3, 166 M60T and an undisclosed number of M60TM.

The first upgrade of the Turkish M60 MBT was made in Israel to convert the tank to Sabra Mk II standard. The first Sabra Mk II was delivered for Turkish trials in 2005 and passed qualifications in May 2006. 170 were upgraded between 2007 and April 2009. The upgrades were undertaken by the Turkish Army's 2nd Main Maintenance Center Command, with upgrade kits supplied by IMI (Israel Military Industries).

The M60T keeps the design of the original M60 tank but fitted with new armor and it incorporated the MG253 120 mm gun developed by IMI.

The modernization of the M60T tanks was carried out by ASELSAN within the scope of the FIRAT Project, which was initiated to improve the protection level of the Main Battle Tanks participating in Operation Euphrates Shield against anti-tank threats and terrorist elements and to bring additional capabilities to existing systems.

The M60T Modernization Project Contract was signed by the Undersecretariat for Defence Industry to bring additional capabilities into existing systems in order to effectively protect the main battle tanks. Deliveries are ongoing within the scope of the contract for the system, which includes the Close Range Surveillance System (YAMGÖZ), Tank Driver Vision System (DVS), Tank Laser Warning System (TLWS) and ATS-70 (Electro-Optic Sensor System) equipment.

The M60TM incorporates many new features including a remotely operated weapon station mounted on the roof of the turret, a laser warning system, a 360° surveillance system and a telescopic mast with camera to conduct surveillance missions on the battlefield. The mast is mounted on the left side of the turret with a stabilized sensor pod including day charge-coupled device (CCD) camera, thermal camera, and a laser rangefinder. It also has an Aselsan camera suite to provide situational awareness through 360°.

The M60TM is also fitted with the PULAT Active Protection System developed and designed by the Turkish Company Aselsan. PULAT has been developed in a very short time span with a great effort and was proven successful against hundreds of RPGs and ATGMs during its qualification phase. PULAT, with its full autonomous functioning ability, allows tank operators to ignore any incoming threats and focus on the main mission. PULAT detects any incoming threats and neutralizes them before they even reach the tanks.

PULAT detects the anti-tank missiles or rockets approaching to the platform with its high technology radar and then disables them at optimum range from the platform by using the Hard-Kill method.

PULAT provides 360 degrees full protection, depending on the placement of the modules on the platform, against anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM) and rockets. PULAT is effective in both asymmetric warfare and the operational environment of main battle tanks. PULAT can also handle multiple threats effectively at the same time as a result of its distributed architecture.
