Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

The label for this T-55 reads: “Poland had purchased a licensing agreement from the USSR in 1956, and it was then that mass production of the T-54A began. During the license period a number of modifications were introduced which improved the vehicle’s operation, i.e. the tanks were modified in production to serve in deep fording of up to 5.5 metres; there was a significant increase in maximum range, additionally a hydraulically assisted clutch and planetary transmission. These tanks were identified as the T-54AM. When the model T-55A tanks entered into license production in 1964 a decision was made to improve the T-54 and bring it up to the standard of the T-55A tanks. The improved vehicles were then identified as the T-55U.”
