Polish TKS Tankette
Like so many other of the world's armies in the 1930's Poland flirted with small tanks, unable to afford larger gun-armed tanks in quantity. When the Germans crashed over their borders in September 1939, they too arrived, we should remember, with many or mostly machine gun armed tanks with paper thin armour.
Polish wz.29 Ursus Armoured Car
Designed in 1929, the Samochd Pancerny wzr 29('armoured car 1929 pattern'), was more commonly known as Ursus or CWS. Based on the chassis of a 2-ton truck, the Ursus mounted a 37mm anti-tank gun and multiple machine guns. Although adequately armoured for the inter-war period, the Ursus was the poor relation when facing more modern opposition in 1939.
Polish 7TP Tank
A development of the British Vickers 6-ton light tank the Polish 7TP saw combat in the Defence of Poland in 1939. Although significantly better armed than the German’s Panzer I and Panzer II the 7TP was never fielded in enough numbers to change the outcome of the war – indeed there were only ever 108 of the single turret versions in Polish service.
