Abstract : Tests were made on a recoil exerciser valve to determine its suitability for use in the M60 series tank. It was evaluated with respect to functioning, durability, reliability, maintenance, and human factors engineering. The US Army Armor Board concluded that: (1) the recoil exerciser was suitable for Army use and (2) the advantages to be gained by installing the recoil exerciser valve on all M60 series tanks outweigh the disadvantages.
