I feel that there is not much information about the internal structure of this tank

 

Not sure how specific you want to be but from here:

 

https://tanks-encyclopedia.com/coldwar/argentina/tanque_argentino_mediano.php

 

"In total, 50 rounds are carried, 20 in the turret and the remaining 30 in the hull. 13 of the turret rounds are carried on holding brackets for immediate use."

 

and

 

"The bigger rear section occupies the central and rear part of the tank and houses the combat area and turret basket, with the commander, gunner and loader sitting on folding seats in this area, along with all the ammunition."

 

Therefore nothing in the forward area of the hull, beside the driver, etc. which makes sense given the location of the power plant.

Not sure at all if what Wartthunder X-ray shows is trustworthy..   could be made up.    But what it's worth to give idea of possible layout..

All TAMs are based on the hull of the IFV Marder. Since the Marder has the engine in the front, the only place aside from the turret itself is the rear of the hull, where otherwise the troop compartment would have been.

THANKS

My friend found some information. The ammunition that TAM can use immediately is 13 rounds. Seven of the 20 rounds of the turret are stored in a turret bustle storage box and cannot be loaded during combat. The available 13 rounds of ammunition are 11 rounds on the floor + 2 rounds on the bulkhead, similar to Leopard 1.

 

There are two vertical wheeled ammunition racks at the rear of the car body, each of which is about 8 rounds, which is very interesting
However, the remaining storage structure of the hull ammunition is unclear.

 

Supplementary information is welcome
