    By Chris Banyai-Riepl

    What the Stratus Polish Wings series has done for Polish aviation, their Polish Tracks & Wheels aims to do for Polish armor vehicles. This volume completes their coverage on the Vickers tank, which was extensively modified throughout its career. This includes operating as an artillery tractor and amphibious tank, among other more traditional roles.

    This book picks up where the previous volume left off, with the Vickers Medium Tank Mark D from the late 1920s. This was a one-off design that actually did not go to Poland, as interest had shifted to the Vickers Six-Ton tank, which is the next subject in the book. From that vehicle the book jumps to the Vickers-Carden-Loyd Mk VI, Vickers 4 Ton Artillery Tractor, Vickers Light Tank 4 Ton, Vickers Light Amphibious Tank, 7TP Twin Turret, 7TP Single Turret, Light Tank V/7TP, and the reinforced 7TP.

    It was with the 7TP that Poland entered the Second World War, and the remainder of the book documents the operational history of the 7TP in Polish and foreign service. The battle for Poland was a quick one, though, and the operational history in Polish service was therefore short. The book presents this history through the organization of the units, but mainly through extensive photographic coverage, which is quite nice to see. Colors and markings are further documented in the form of color illustrations and detailed marking tables.

    This is a nice conclusion to the Polish Vickers series, and provides an interesting subject for the modeler and historian alike.

    Review

    Adam Jonca's superb study of Poland's Vickers 6 Ton tanks continues. And the second and final part – volume 3 in Stratus' acclaimed "Polish Tracks & Wheels" series – spans several subjects, including other Vickers models and local design derivatives:

    Medium Mark D

    6 Ton

    Carden-Loyd Mk.VI

    4 Ton Artillery Tractor

    4 Ton Light Tank

    Light Amphibious Tank

    7TP

    Light Tank V/7TP Conversions

    Reinforced 7TP

    Contents chronologically course through design, development, technical details, testing, service and fates. Operational coverage of the 7TP – the book's principal protagonist – recaps Polish, German and Soviet use.

    Only 124 7TPs, arguably Poland's most potent tank, faced Germany's onslaught in August 1939. Operational survivors initially served with at least three Nazi armored divisions – and, later, with German police units in rear areas of the Eastern Front.

    Nearly 200 photos illustrate text. And over 25 color plates depict vehicle color schemes, unit markings, signaling symbols, and equipment and organization of Polish light tank battalions. Jonca's beautiful profiles will really rouse your modeling muse. But unless I missed something, the author explains the use of two different 1936 olive green camouflage paints – but not the brighter green shade depicted in a few color plates.

    I absolutely loved Polish Vickers Part 2. Get this book!
