In Battlefield 2, the 2K22 Tunguska is the MEC mobile anti-aircraft vehicle. Its counterparts are the USMC M6 Linebacker and the PLA Type 95 SPAAA. Armed with twin autocannons and SAMs, the Tunguska is very potent at taking out aircraft, as well as infantry in the open.
However, against vehicles, the Tunguska can only perform well against light armored vehicles such as the Desert Patrol Vehicle or HMMWV. Against tanks, the Tunguska will surely be destroyed as its guns cannot penetrate their armor, thus any driver should avoid main battle tanks at any cost.

— Battlelog description
In Battlefield 3, the 9K22 Tunguska-M is an anti-aircraft vehicle issued to Russian forces. It can be spotted on the Caspian Border trailer and in some wallpaper art for a Battlefield 3 Xbox 360 dashboard theme. It is also listed in EA's fact sheet.
Despite being an anti-aircraft vehicle, the Tunguska's extremely fast-firing autocannons and turret elevation capability make it a useful anti-infantry vehicle as well. The cannons also have remarkable reload times, allowing for an almost endless rain of bullets. It is a perfect vehicle to lay down suppressive fire.
Although it lacks dedicated weapons against ground vehicles, it is capable of inflicting serious damage. In one salvo (about six seconds of sustained fire), tanks can be brought down to 20% health if flanked, but can retain 75% if attacked from the front.
Its US counterpart is the LAV-AD, which is almost exactly the same except for its amphibious capability and wheeled chassis, the latter of which prevents the LAV from turning on the spot like the Tunguska can.
Patches have changed the anti-air vehicles' performance against tanks, at one point mistakenly eliminating damage. Patches have also increased the time and precision required to kill infantry.
A patch increased the bullet velocity, making it slightly easier to attack high-flying air vehicles.
After Tombstone departs from Molina's outpost and elimates all hostiles outside of it, Recker can drive a 9K22 Tunguska-M, but renderless useless since it's size is to large to fit through the concrete wall.
The 9K22 Tunguska-M is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 4, serving as the Russian Ground Forces' anti-aircraft vehicle.
- When equipped with Air Radar, the Tunguska's radar dish will be deployed and start rotating.
- Unlike its counterpart, the screen will start shaking a bit when firing the 30mm cannon.
- In first-person view, the AA guns will converge on the crosshair. Third-person view uses an "out-facing corners" reticle; the guns originate at the bottom two corners, and converge above center.
