Later in 1973, when the division was withdrawn from the Israeli bridgehead in Africa, the battalion ceased to exist. Sharon sent a letter after the conflict to its veterans: 34 At the moment of the ceasefire, when I was standing in the outskirts of Ismailia watching the last tanks of the 87th burning, I saw before my eyes the unit’s warriors as I saw them on the day of Yom Kippur. I remembered the expression of resolve on their faces, and I knew now that they had not failed. Many of them did not live to see the end of the war, but they were the men that made the end of the war possible.

US DoD photo by Sgt. E. Renner) The US Air Force (USAF) deployed a handful of M60A3s from Europe to bases in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. These tanks were acquired by the Air Force in the 1980s and used for the unexploded ordnance (UXO) mission, either shooting explosive devices or pushing them out of the way with a dozer blade. The USMC was armed with M60A1 RISE Passive as their primary MBT. In 1985, they had 716 of these tanks, equipping three active and two reserve tank battalions, three battalion sets on Maritime Prepositioning Ships (MPS), plus war reserve and training tanks.

The US Army estimated that if it struck home a 105mm APDS, HEAT, or HEP projectile had, respectively, a 71, 75, and 81 percent chance of killing a T-62, either putting it out of action or preventing it from moving or firing. US M60 armor also was upgraded with the Israeli Blazer system. The US Army ordered enough Blazer to equip the two tank battalions then in Korea. When these re-equipped with M1 tanks in the late 1980s, they made the armor available to the Marines, who were not scheduled to re-equip with M1s until after 1992.
