Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

The label for this TOPAS reads: “The TOPAS APC was produced in Czechoslovakia and brought into service in the Armed Forces of the People’s Republic of Poland in the early 1960s. These vehicles were amphibious and were used by the 7th Lusatian Seaborne Assault Division referred to as the ‘Blue Berets’. The TOPAS-2AP version on exhibit here, fitted with armaments in the revolving turret, was developed by the Wojskowa Akademia Techniczna (WAT – Military University of Technology) in Warsaw. This version saw service in the 7th Seaborne Division beginning in April 1971. This APC was withdrawn from service in the mid-1990s.”
