Polish Tanks

Early Polish armour consisted mainly of French equipment, these were Renault TF-17 light tanks and later these were aided by light tanks purchased from the British firm Vickers. The FT-17 was by now considered obsolete but still formed into three light companies and saw limited action. The Poles also developed a range of tankettes which were mainly armed with machine guns. The Polish army had a number of Renault R-35 tanks but these were not yet ready for battle and were not used in battle, they were all withdrawn to Romania to prevent capture.
