I always rather liked the A2 - an M-60 with a new turret toting a 152mm gun/missile launcher - due to it's 1970s wackiness and short service life. It always struck me as a really heavy Sheridan... Such is my fondness for such silliness that I'd love to see a 1/300 (or 1/285) model of MBT-70 - a cancelled US/West German MBT project which was to have been tooled up with a 183mm gun/missile launcher. Hopefully Andy at Heroics & Ros is reading this....
I found a clip of MBT-70 here. It seems the projected costs made the subsequent XM-1 look like something of a bargain!
My current models are all by Heroics & Ros and date from the early 1980s. They're bearing up well. GHQ did an A2 many years ago, but it has never been updated or re-released. I think I have a few somewhere in dire need of a refit.
