NotesThe TK 3 was a light tankette which was built and designed in Poland. The Polish army had already bought a licence to build Carden-Loyd tankettes and did some alterations to the running gear which finished up being used on the TK series. The TK 3 was only armed with a single machine gun and issued to motorised cavalry divisions.
