ww2dbaseIn the 1930s, Poland expressed interest to purchase the British Vickers-Carden-Loyd Light Amphibious Tanks, but the two sides never reached an agreement. The Polish Army subsequently requested Edward Habich of the firm Panstwowe Zaklady Inzynieryjne (PZInz) to create an indigenous design. The PZInz 130 amphibious tank project shared the same chassis as the concurrent 4TP light tank project. Habich delivered the prototype to the Polish Army on 2 Oct 1937 and was tested thoroughly with success. In May 1939, the Polish Army decided to abandon such a project. The prototype was captured by the Germans at PZInz's Ursus Factory at 15 Sienna Street, Warsaw, Poland and its fate was lost to history.
