Has the optical rangefinder been retained?

According to this, it seems they finally have a customer, as yet unidentified, for the 120S (M60-2000).

I do know Taiwan has been talking about ordering the M60-2000 in the last few years with latest proposal to exchange its obsolete M48 tanks to the U.S to offset the cost for the M60-2000 for all of their M60A3 tanks. However, no deal has been passed so far because tanks are considered less important compared to other military equipment.
