The M728 is based on the hull of the M60 tank. A dozer blade is mounted to the front of the hull and an A-frame crane is hinged to either side of the turret. In traveling mode the crane is folded down around the rear of the turret. The main gun fires several types of ammunition, to include antipersonnel rounds. During Operation DESERT STORM M728s were used to augment M1A1s equipped with mine rollers and mine plows.
Secondary: .50-caliber machine gun
