I posted above but never got an answer - did the IDF use a different gunner's sight? The one on these M60's looks different than the standard US one. If so, when was it introduced?

I'm no Magach expert, but the Magach 6 Bet 'Gal' used the Israeli 'Gal' fire control system (introduced in 1989), the 6 Bet 'Baz' the 'Baz' fire control system (I guess the same FCS is used on the Merkava Mk.III 'Baz'). The 6 Mem was equipped with the 'Nachal Oz' fire control system (the same as on the Merkava M.II).
