Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

This TKS was captured by the Germans during the Second World War and taken to Norway to serve with the occupation forces. It was found in the Swedish Axvall Pansarmuseet (chassis and part of upper plates) and was donated in November 2003 to the Polish Army Museum. It was completely restored by the museum and the Ursus factory, with parts coming from different tankettes found in the ground and some parts reconstructed. It is painted in a standard camouflage scheme used by the Polish from 1936 into World War II. Its first public show was at the International Defence Industry Salon (MSPO) in September 2005 in Kielce, followed by a technical demonstration also in September 2005 at Fort Czerniakowski. It also took part in the Bzura 2005 historical re-enactment. (Source: PIBWL, Portal Militarno).
It is in good condition and in running order, but is missing some interior parts.
