This article is about {{{1}}}. For {{{2}}}, see [[{{{3}}}]].

Use this template when there are only two uses for the term in question in order to refer to the other article. This avoids the neccessity of creating a dedicated disambiguation page. If there are more than two uses, a disambiguation page will be needed.

For example, if the term in question is "Foo", the article named Foo should be about the more common usage of the term. At the top of the article, place this template to refer to the other article, which would be called something like "Foo (bar)". The template should also be placed at the top of the secondary article.

This template accepts three arguments. To use the arguments, place pipes after you include the template, like:

{{Template:Disambig2|this article's topic|other article's topic}}.

As a concrete example, on the page Armada:

{{Template:Disambig2|the franchise called '''Armada'''|the nameless Transformer in TF:TM|Armada (G1)}}
