CP-30

Notes: Scheduled to be replaced by the VCLC, this vehicle was nowhere near replaced by the VCLC and soldiered on. It is an MRL mounted on a VLRA ACMAT 8x8 chassis. The rockets may be launched one at a time, or ripple-fired. It is otherwise a conventional multiple rocket launcher.

VCLC

Notes: This Argentine multiple rocket launcher is mounted on a modified TAM light tank chassis. In this role the VCLC is topped with a 2-man turret mounting twin 18-round 160mm rocket launchers or 4 350mm rocket launchers. In the front of the turret is a commander's hatch with a machinegun mount. The vehicle is usually followed by a number of M-809 5-ton trucks with extra rocket pods, each of which has a crane for reloading. The other vehicle accompanying is a truck with a ranging radar. The VCLC was unfortunately the victim of the budget crisis in Argentina and was never built in quantity; in fact, the CAM version was not built beyond mockups.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The few VCLCs that saw some action in Twilight War acquitted themselves well; the CAM-350 proved especially devastating to their targets. They were unfortunately few in number until well after the war.

Merc 2000 Notes: Though the VCLC sold reasonably well, the Argentine Army never saw any; the ones produced were sold to other countries.
