IBM 3430 magnetic tape subsystem
Introduced in 1983, the IBM 3430 Magnetic Tape Subsystem was used with some of the 43xx and 303x series processors, as well as the midrange System/38. Its compact size provided users with increased space savings and its horizontal tape transport deck permitted easy tape reel mountings and handling.
