About the TKS - Polish Tankette:
First entering production in 1934, the TKS was based off of the TK3 and featured an upgraded engine and improved armor and firepower over its predecessors, but it was also slower and heavier. While most of the Polish TKS tankettes were attached to infantry units, they also served in independent companies of 13, with a total of 575 TK and TKS tankettes making up the majority of the Polish armored fighting vehicles before the start of WWII. Their most famous display in combat came at the hands of Polish Commander Edmund Roman Orlik who registered 13 tank kills in three engagements against invading German forces.
