NotesThe Tacam T-60 was developed to give the Romanian army a tank destroyer, and these were similar in a way to the Marder series used by Germany. By 1942 the Romanian army had come to terms with the fact that they simply didn’t have an armoured vehicle capable of defeating the T-34 or KV-I, this problem was solved by merging modified chassis from T-60 light tanks with the F-22 76.2mm field gun. The T-60 and F-22 were captured in some numbers from the Russians and extra armour was added to form the fighting compartment and this came from Soviets BT-7 tanks. These vehicles were used to equip two tank destroyer companies and these were issued to both the 1st and 2nd tank regiments.
