The BA23 was originally marketed with an 5.25" RD series drive and an
RX50 dual 5.25" floppy drive. Later, for the MicroVAX/VaxStationI/II/IIRC
system, the RX50 was replaced by a TK50. There was also a configuration
with an RX33 instead of either the RX50 or TK50.

A TU58 type tape drive sounds very strange for the BA23... maybe it
was packaged by someone else? (Would the single TU58 tape drive of
a Vax-11/730 be adaptable to the skids of a BA23 drive bay?)
