The Towed HVMS 60 anti-tank gun is a towed version of the TAAS - Israel Industries 60 mm HyperVelocity Medium Support weapon (HVMS 60) designed for mounting in AFV turrets.

Early prototypes of the 60 mm HVMS were mounted on converted ex-British six-pounder anti-tank gun carriages, but these mounts were for trials purposes only. The proper towed version is still at an early stage of development and uses a simple carriage with a small shield and tubular trails. To date only prototype examples have been produced, but it is known that production versions will have a form of upwards-folding trail to reduce the length of the towed load. An automatic loading device may be fitted over the breech. Due to its low recoil force of 6000 kg, this gun is easily installed on a broad variety of exisiting carriages, including those of Eastern European origin.
