Spanish M-48A5 (Spanish-Modified)

Notes: Spain began upgrading its M-48A5s in 1965. The first was the M-48A5E, which was quickly phased out of service in favor of the improved modifications of the M-48A5E1. The M-48A5E1 has a new computerized fire control system, with 70% commonality to the M-60A3ís fire control system. 164 of these remain in service. The M-48A5E2 has this fire control system, and adds a laser rangefinder, passive IR vision for the commander, driver, and gunner, a more powerful engine, and an ability to lay a smoke screen by injecting diesel fuel into its exhaust. Smoke grenade dischargers are also added to either side of the turret. The M-48A5E3 replaces the commander and gunnerís passive IR with thermal imaging, full stabilization for the main gun and coaxial machinegun, and a fire detection/suppression system.  In addition, Spanish commanderís machineguns are M-2HBs instead of MAGs.
