Turkey provides M60 tanks to Libya

The tanks were supplied to the forces that were loyal to Libya’s Government of National Accord in its war with the rival Libyan National Army 

The Janes website reported, based on photographs released by the Turkish Ministry of National Defence, that Turkey has supplied US-made M60 tanks to the forces that were loyal to Libya’s Government of National Accord (GNA), which has now been superseded by the Government of National Unity that was endorsed on March 10.

The photographs released via the ministry's Twitter account on March 27 showed Libyans being trained on at least three M60A1 tanks inside a large shed. The Libyan military never operated the M60 but Turkey, the main supporter of the GNA in its war with the rival Libyan National Army (LNA), has large numbers of M60A1s and M60A3s, the report said.

Other photographs showed a MAN truck next to the tanks with the same cab configuration used with the Roketsan T-122 multiple rocket launcher, and Libyans being trained on a Turkish-made T-155 Fırtına self-propelled howitzer, Janes said, adding that some Libyans have been taken for training in Turkey.
