In years 1929-1939 Polish Army have designed, produced and tested many versions of tankettes. Latest variant was TK-3, developed in early 1931. Armed with single 7.92mm Hotchkins MG, with the armor thick up-to 8mm TK-3s were considered rather recon and support vehicle rather than unassisted, independent units. With no AT weapons tankettes stood no chance agains German tanks (with the exception of Panzer I). Due to lack of armored forces, most of the time being only avaliable fighting vehicles, tankettes and it's crews were often outmatched. Significant number of TK tanks were destroyed or abandoned, because of lack of fuel or numerous malfunctions.
