History
This tank design was submitted to the Polish army in 1939 by Professor Antoniego Markowskiego. It was quite an advance design with heavily sloped amour and a large 120mm cannon. Not much is know other then the brief design proposal, even if it would have been excepted though Polish industry at that time would have struggled to produced such a large and complex tank.


Note

This tank received no official designation and was was simply called "heavy tank" (Czolg Ciezki). I have used the name 53TP in accordance with Polish armoured nomenclature to help differentiate it.

Yes recent research has shown this document to be dubious. I will amend the description in the near future.
