For the Record: Restored TKS tankette
Thanks to wlw for posting this one: * * Thanks to some diplomacy between Poland and Norway, a wreck of the classic Polish TKS tankette was imported from Norway to the Poznan armor museum. The wreck was in terrible condition due to the harsh norther weather it was exposed to. Within one and a half year, the tankette was disassembled and restored completely. Some parts of it (like the roadwheels) had to be made from scratch, but in the end the result was a success. Unfortunately the originl engine could not be obtained and the tankette now runs with a post-war car engine. The tankette was test driven for the first time now, in September 2013. Hard to believe anyone used such a cute little thing for war, isn’t it?
