The soldiers accompanying the 7TP's on obvious combat missions are apparently Feldgendarmerie, judging from their uniforms. All the other photographs seem to show parades and exercises in Germany and Poland by the Wehrmacht, but the army never seems to have taken the Polish 7TP to war, unlike its nephew, the Soviet T26.

Captured 7TPs were used mainly by Polizei units but IIRC some were used on Easter Front (Minsk?) and I think I saw photo of one in Paris or France in 1944. So it's possible that some could fight against Soviet or Allied vehicles.

I think this is the first photo of German tank captured and used by Polish troops in 1939.

The second photo was posted earlier in this thread but I'm posting it again with another one. Both were made in mid 1940 in Ungern Kaserne in Elbing (today: Elbląg in Poland).

Both photos were shown on eBay and were later posted somewhere in Odkrywca.pl forum.

If this is PZInż.713 then registration plate is a little bit strange. WH-1000000-1099999 block was issued in August 1941 and this truck should be owned by Wehrmacht since September / October 1939.

Unless captured from the invaders of the eastern half.

You are right. There were only 100 PZInż.703 and 713 manufactured and some of them were captured by the Red Army. There are information about few bodyless chassis od PZInż.713 in the Soviet Union but there are no information about completed vehicles.

We had some more photos in this thread: http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... start=3465
