One of the most common Main Battle Tanks of the late 1980s and early 1990s in countries not affiliated with the Soviet Union or – later on – Russia was the M60 series. This American workhorse was the mainstay of the U.S. armored forces for several decades, surviving the ill-fated MBT-70 program before finally being replaced by the Abrams series. Many tanks of this type were sold around the world, but in the 1980s, the design started to struggle to keep up with the best Russian vehicles available.

That's when a number of modernization programs appeared. The M60-2000 was a General Dynamics program to improve the aging M60 Patton series by mating the M60 hull with an M1A1 Abrams turret (armed with an M256 120mm gun) to produce an affordable upgrade option for current Patton users. The development started in the 1990s and eventually led to the 120S Main Battle Tank. Turkey and Egypt were interested in upgrading their M60 stock, but they eventually opted for different upgrades.

The biggest competitor to the 120S was Israel with its Sabra program by IMI (originally based on Israel's own Magach 7), which was eventually declared the winner thanks to an extensive economic offset program that Israel offered. The 120S was marketed for several years afterwards but no potential buyers were interested and given the lack of any information and the disappearance of the 120S from General Dynamics offers, the project was likely cancelled around 2010.

This MBT's front is protected by composite armor. Composite armor consists of combined layers of steel and other material and offers excellent protection against HEAT shells and ATGMs. Its steel sides and rear are considerably more vulnerable.
