TACAM R-1 (Tun Anticar pe Afet Mobil - Self-propelled Anti-tank Gun) was a small tank destroyer for use by Romania during World War II. It was designed on the 22nd of November 1943 at the request of the Romanian General Staff. Fourteen AH-IV tankettes were to be rearmed with soviet 45 mm AT guns. Although this vehicle was designed to be used only for security duties, the project was cancelled because it was eventually regarded as a waste of badly needed resources.[1]
