East vs. West - T-72, Type 59, M60A1Patton - Cold War Armour at Tankfest 2016

Jukka O. Kauppinen

T-72M1 (E1994.6) - After World War 2 Soviet tanks developed along logical traditional lines. In 1960 work began on a new design, the T-64, which incorporated many revoluntionary and untried features but it was not a great success and in 1970 the prototype of T-72 appeared, which could be described as a simplified version of T-64. In 1995 production was estimated at around 25,000 tanks, although this included licence built versions from India, Poland, Romania, the former Czechosolvakia and Yugoslavia. Our exhibit was in service with the former East German Army; it is the model T-72M which was produced for export only. Tanks of this type were employed by the Iraqi Republican Guard during the Gulf War (1991), by the Syrian Army in Lebanon, by various elements in the former Yugoslavia and, of course, in Chechnya. The striking feature of T-72 is the low profile. This is achieved by careful design but in particular by the elimination of the loader who, because he has to work standing up, largely dictates the height of a tank. He is replaced in this vehicle by an auto-loader, which can feed the gun at any angle with a separate projectile and charge case. The ammunition is arranged around the turret rather like the carousel of a slide projector. Ammunition stowage is limited, the rounds are unprotected so there is a high fire risk, the mechanical equipment is prone to break down and the rate of fire, due to the action of the auto-loader, is slow. -- Norinco Type 59 Main Battle Tank - The Type 59 (Chinese: 59?; pinyin: W?ji? shì; industrial designation: WZ-120) main battle tank is a Chinese-produced version of the Soviet T-54A tank, the earliest model of the ubiquitous T-54/55 series. The first vehicles were produced in 1958 and it was accepted into service in 1959, with serial production beginning in 1963. Over 10,000 of the tanks were produced by the time production ended in 1980 with approximately 5,500 serving with the Chinese armed forces. The tank formed the backbone of the Chinese People's Liberation Army until the early 2000s (decade) with an estimated 5,000 of the later Type 59-I and Type 59-II variants in service in 2002. The Type 59 was modified several times during its service with the replacement of the 100 mm Type 59 rifled gun with a 105 mm rifled gun. It was also the basis of several later Chinese tank designs including the Type 69 and Type 79 tanks. -- M60A1 (RISE) Main Battle Tank (E1993.128) - Successor to the M48, another General Patton One major criticism of the M48 was its relatively poor armour protection which left it vulnerable to the Soviet T-54. When the M60 appeared in 1960 there was little evidence of change in this respect; the lower hull was thicker but armour thickness on the upper hull had been slightly reduced. In terms of firepower and performance there were great changes which had been foreshadowed in later M48 production. M60 carried the British 105mm gun and employed the 12 cylinder Continental diesel engine which gave it a very lively performance. Like M48 the M60 is a large tank, made bigger by the enclosed commander's cupola, virtually a little turret in its own right. Early models featured a turret similar to M48 but the M60A1 has an elongated turret with an improved shape at the front. Later changes included modifications to the engine under the Reliability-Improved-Selected-Equipment programme or RISE.
