Final protective layer for long term collection. Magach 6B Gal Batash, an Israeli built derivative of the American M60A1 Main Battle Tank. The name is a derivative itself: as a result of the Yom Kippur war, Israel began a series of survivability and capability upgrades to their tanks. In the case of the M60 (designated as Magach 6), the type received the M60 RISE updates becoming Magach 6B.
Fitting the Gal fire control system created the Magach 6B Gal, while the upgrades adding the 908 horsepower engine and Generation-4 passive armor rendered the Magach 6B Gal Batash configuration. Several dozen Jordanian M48 tanks, captured intact during the 1967 Six Day War were also commissioned into service, adding to Israel`s 150 vehicles already in service at that time. During that war, the Israeli tanks served in their original (American) configuration. Following the 1967 war, several modifications were made to improve the tank to the M48A3 level, resulting with the Magach 3.
These modifications included replacement of the original 90 mm cannon gun with the British 105 mm L7, lowering the command turret`s profile, upgrading the communication suite, and replacing the flammable and underpowered gasoline engine with a 750hp diesel one. When the Yom Kippur War broke out in 1973, Israel had a total of 540 M48A3 (with 105mm gun) and M60A1 tanks. During the war, the tanks suffered heavy losses. The location of flammable hydraulic fluid at the front of the turret was discovered to be a severe vulnerability. At the conclusion of hostilities, Israel had only about 200 M48A3 and M60A1 tanks remaining; the majority of which falling victim to entrenched Egyptian infantry armed with AT-3 Sagger anti-tank missiles.
The war`s losses were replaced with new M48A5 (Magach 5) and M60 (Magach 6) tanks during the 1970s. Prior to the 1982 invasion of Lebanon (1982 Lebanon War), Magach 6 tanks were fitted with explosive reactive armor (ERA). Further work had been done on the upgraded Magach 6 models, including new armor, Merkava-based tracks, a new fire control system, a thermal sleeve for the gun and smoke dischargers, eventually resulting in the Magach 7 model which is still in use with the IDF. Since the 1980s and 1990s, the Magachs have been gradually replaced with Merkava tanks as Israel`s front-line main battle tank. However, the large majority of the IDF`s armored corps continued to consist of Magach variants up until the 1990s, and the tank was continuously upgraded during this time.By 2006 all Magachs in regular units had been replaced with the Merkava.
