It is a Chrysler M48 A1 'Patton' (1952-59).

Are these tanks also the same as this?

Um... of course they did. They remained in service with the US Army until the mid 1990s.

The specific model shown here (the M48 A3) was actually fairly new at the time, having been introduced in 1959.

Ft. Knox was/is a large armor installation...so it would have had the maion battle tanks at the time of filming.

Medium tanks. The US did not have a main battle tank until the M1 (the Soviets' first MBT was the T-64).

With 57 tons of weight, M60 hardly can pass as "medium".

US designation of the time was not based on weight. It was based on main gun calibre.

US Ordnance Committee Minutes (OCM) issued item #33476 states:

76mm - light tank.

90 and 105mm - medium tank.

120mm - heavy tank.

And the M103 heavy tank weighed 65 tons, and was in service at the same time as the M60.

And the weight of the M60 varies between 45 tons and 50 tons, depending on the turret. It is nowhere near 57 tons.
