The M48 Patton was the third tank to be named after George S Patton, a famous general during the Second World War. The tank was a further development of the M47. The M48 was in American service until it was replaced by the M60 Main Battle Tank. It saw action with American troops during the Vietnam war. The original M48 mounted the 90 mm gun but the M48A5 upgrade was developed to replace that with the 105 mm gun used by the M60.

In Game Edit

This is the tier I Nato Tank. Compared to its counterpart it is superior in every category except fire rate and speed. It isn't too far behind tier II tanks in protection and firepower though it will be one of the slowest tanks on the battlefield. It will get thrown in matches with tier II through IV so try to remain behind in the support role so as not to be the primary target. Used effectively this can still kill any tank it runs into though it will require more skill level being the lowest tier player.
