Description

GarageImage TAM 2C.jpg


The Tanque Argentino Mediano 2C is a rank VII German light tank with a battle rating of 9.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update "Raining Fire".

General info

Survivability and armour

The armour is composed of welded steel, providing protection up to 32 mm.

The front can defend against 12.7 mm machine gun ammo, but the side armour is only proof against standard machine guns of 7.62 mm. However, most enemies that can be faced will usually have a 12.7 mm machine gun or larger in their possession, making it so even a burst of bullets could riddle the TAM with holes. With this in mind, take caution when flanking a tank with a disabled gun to get a side shot, as you can easily lose a few crew members to machine gunfire. This becomes less of an issue after unlocking the APFSDS round when side shots are rarely as necessary.

The TAM also is hull-breakable, and so rounds that hit have a chance of instantly destroying the vehicle.

Armor Composition:

  • Rolled Homogeneous Armor
  • Cast Homogeneous Armor - Gunner's Optics Port (Turret Roof)
  • Structural Steel - Fenders
  • Structural Steel of Chassis - Suspension
  • Tracks

  • Sideskirts - 4 mm

Mobility

Write about the mobility of the ground vehicle. Estimate the specific power and manoeuvrability, as well as the maximum speed forwards and backwards.

Armaments

Main armament

Give the reader information about the characteristics of the main gun. Assess its effectiveness in a battle based on the reloading speed, ballistics and the power of shells. Do not forget about the flexibility of the fire, that is how quickly the cannon can be aimed at the target, open fire on it and aim at another enemy. Add a link to the main article on the gun: {{main|Name of the weapon}}. Describe in general terms the ammunition available for the main gun. Give advice on how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Powerful DM63 APFSDS round making it competitive at its battle rating.
  • Decent mobility allowing it to flank and retreat.
  • Excellent reverse speed, as fast in reverse as it is forwards.
  • High quality thermals in gunner and commander's sights.
  • Large first stage ammo stowage allows for enough rounds for the entire match.

Cons:

  • Extremely poor armor makes it vulnerable to hullbreak and heavy machine guns.
  • Only 12.0x magnification in gunner's sight, leading to poor FOV and tunnel vision.
  • Mediocre gun depression, only -7°.
  • Poor stock grind with expensive module RP costs.
  • Stock DM12 HEAT-FS is inadequate at its battle rating.

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
