The 2K22/9K22 Tunguska was built for a main purpose: superior ground-to-air support. With medium speed, relatively decent armor and twin 30mm rapid-firing guns, it's an excellent escort unit for ground forces or a typical second line of air defense for a base. It can also serve as an anti-infantry medium tank that the Consortium really needs in the early game.
The Tunguska is not all that useful against the TFT. Though a perfect-counter to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, it is ineffective against other air units. The SA-7 on the other hand, is preferably the better anti-aircraft unit, since it just packs a better punch.
The 2K22 Tunguska is a Russian tracked self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon armed with a surface-to-air gun and missile system.
It is designed to provide day and night protection for infantry and tank regiments against low-flying aircraft, helicopters, and cruise missiles in all weather conditions.
Development of the system started on 8 June 1970, at the request of the Soviet Ministry of Defence the KBP Instrument Design Bureau in Tula under the guidance of the appointed Chief Designer AG Shipunov started work on a 30 mm anti-aircraft system as a replacement for the 23 mm ZSU-23-4.
| Extended radar and stealth detection|
Gives Tunguskas the ability to detect stealth air units, plus a 100 percent increase in detection and shooting range against all aircraft.
