I had 23k bonds and decided to take the M60 from the bond shop. 

 

I was undecided because, I though I might try to enter a decent clan and win a 907 since I will have more time this summer, but then I changed my mind.

 

I had 3 battles last night and the tank gun, even without Vstabiliser and GLD was like a laser. I had this moment in El Halluf where I was sniping a STB1 from 500m and hiting everyshot in his lower plate. 

 

Glad I bought this tank because I like mobile tanks,  one of my most played tanks is AMX30 but this gun is way way better. The only cons is the cammo but I can work around that.

Yeah... toolbox, camo net and wet ammo rack are the way to go.

M60 after the buff has actually become quite nice, you just play it for the gun basically and the viewrange :D

All those M60's driving around are a living reminder of all the bonus codes Xensation has given to this community.

Oh the horror how it was to play when it was first introduced. As slow as M48 and no armor. Haven't played too many battles in it after the buff so the 44% winrate still remind me from the old days...

I'm about 1K bonds away from either the M60 or 121B and had convinced myself into going for the 121B as I have the M48 anyway.  However, I'm now having second thoughts!

Vents , vert stabilizer and rammer is the best combo for me.

For meds that have good base view range and you have 4skill crew and up.

I dont have skilled crews for american meds unfortunately. Thats another factor why I took this tank, because the m4improved from tank rewards isnt for me, I hate playing that sort of tanks at low tiers.

Got mine before the last buffs and it was actually quite nice already albeit a bit slow without armor.

I agree. I also got myself the M60 recently eventhough everyone told me it's just a worse Leopard and not worth it. 

 

The troll gun mantlet helps this tank alot, I can play much more aggressively than in Leopard, I can't stress how much I love my M60.

i guess if their shells go above/below the gun it can bounce, but left and right seems weak as hell. Maybe enemy was going for cupola and it went into mantlet top :p

Sitting on 26k bonds and since we dont play CW and if nothing interesting comes up the bondshop 2.0 I am thinking of buying the M60.

To be honest, rammer, vstab, optics are the go to option.

Vents are "only" an option if you also run food. As someone who refuses to adopt the food meta i would rather go with optics. And lets be real the average player isn´t min maxing his tank characteristics with 20k consumables+directives and what not.

The M60 has 420m BASE view range though which is insane. With vents, BIA and those two VR skills it's an easy 460m view range that's always on. While also having all the other benefits of using vents.
