About the M48A3 Patton - Main Battle Tank:

Converted from earlier variations of the M48 in early 1963, the M48A3 Patton was deployed mainly to Vietnam. The A3 variant fixed the flammability issues of earlier versions by using a supercharged diesel engine rather than gasoline. Used throughout most of the war, the M48A3 was used mainly as infantry support and for maintaining defensive positions. As the US began to withdraw in 1970, most M48A3s were turned over to the South Vietnamese but were hardly used due to a lack of accessible parts.

Specifications:

  • Total Weight: 96,000 lbs (43,545 kg)
  • Main Armament: 3.5in (90mm) M41 cannon
  • Engine: 700 shp diesel
  • Crew: 4
  • Range: 80 mi (130 km)
