from the wheel configuration very likely this is an M60 tank

I believe this is an M47 Patton. They have been used extensively in movies.

check real pic of M47 patton, http://www.militarymuseum.org/Resources/M47.JPG

notice the DISTANCE between the wheel on the RIGHT side and the one nearest to it on the buttom !! they are almost together !

on this pic here they are further apart just like on the M60 !!! (the gap is clearly much bigger)

this is the main way on how easly differentiate between the M47 and the M60

It is an M48, turret shape position of rangefinder and 90mm gun. Also has a commanders cupola which was not fitted to M47.

the see the smal wheels above, the one in the pic has 3 like M60 , the M48 had 5, so way too many !!!

It IS M48A2 - this variant had 3 return rollers. M48s were made by Chrysler, Fisher Tank Arsenal, Ford Motor Company.

I have to concur, definitely looks like an M48A2.
