This site is devoted to the Polish military vehicles of 1918-1939.
It is dedicated to those, who fought for freedom.
Our intention, first of all, is to popularize less known prototypes, armoured cars and armoured trains of the Polish Army. Other vehicles will be added in our free time (that we are always lacking - that's why we can not update this site frequently - see what's new). We are aware, that some of pages may seem too big and too detailed. Indeed, we have tried to make them as detailed as possible, because it may be difficult to find all these information outside Poland, especially that most of books on the subject are in Polish, and in addition, out of print.
This is only a hobby project, therefore we are unable to search source documents in archives - but we have tried to gather and compare information from most of available publications, and indicate doubts and unclear issues. Some photos are of a poor quality, but we have been trying to make the topic the most complete. This site is very raw and simple - but the information is our goal (besides, it is created entirely in the Notepad).
All photos and drawings remain a property of their owners (most photos are likely to be public domain anyway) and are published in an educational purpose only.
Since the pages were first optimized for 800 x 600 resolution, in case you find any layout errors, mail me.
Until 2018 our site was available under http://derela.republika.pl adress, but we had to move to current domain http://derela.pl.
Now you can find us also on facebook
