TABC-79/SA-9

Notes: Just as Romania's MT-LB-based SA-13 carriers were getting old, so were their BRDM-2-based SA-9 vehicles. As with the SA-13s, the SA-9 turrets were placed on TABC-79 chassis. Again, the TABC-79 in this role does not carry passengers, the space now taken up by the turret and reload missiles and firing electronics.

TABC-79/SA-13

Notes: As Romania's MT-LBs were getting a little long in the tooth and harder to maintain, Romania removed the SA-13 launchers from the MT-LB base vehicles and mounted them on modified TABC-79 scout vehicle chassis. The vehicle, in this role, does not carry passengers, the space now taken up by the turret machinery and reloads for the missile launcher. It is otherwise a standard TABC-79, except for the armament.
