St. Anthony in Fremont County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
M60A3 Army Tank
The A3's improvements over earlier M60 models included a ballistic computer for fire control, a laser range finder, a thermal gun sleeve - which kept heated guns from sagging - and a greatly admired advanced thermal sight system that provided night vision.
This tank was dedicated and brought to its final resting place November 11, 2002.
