Israel M60A1 with some french bits, includind GIAT guns, 105mm and 120mm

Not that far removed from real world.  GIAT did have a concept to rearm the Patton with their 105mm gun as an upgrade to the M47 and M48 Patton tanks.

I can't see a lot of benefit with using the GIAT 105mm gun over the L7. The 120, yes, but not the 105.

I just found a large Bradley print of his in an antique mall in the area a couple days ago.

What about converting ageing Pattons into state-of-the-art IFVs?

I know there were some similar options in RW, as last oportunities to install 120mm gun... But this is "something" different. ;) :smiley:

Seems to me that a factory setting (with those MINIART interiors) would work for any tank that suits one's fancy.

M26 Pershing tanks under production at GM Grand Blanc Tank Plant in Michigan with the Sherman production line in the background, 1945.

Nitpick:  Italy didn't actually use the Leonardo M60A3 SLEP (as I believe you have drawn) in service.  In fact, no-one uses it as far as I understand.  Therefore, it might be a tad difficult for Italy to give them to Ukraine.
