It's September eighteenth, 1939, in the Clean wide open close to the town of Pociecha.

Segment Administrator Edmund Roman Orlik leads three TKS tankettes as they scour the land for the adversary.


The tankettes come to a sudden stop as Orlik hears something…

He listens nearer, it seems as though tanks, it is tanks and they're rolling in from the right.

It must be the foe.

He arranges 2 automatic weapon tankettes to remain back as he probably is aware they can do nothing against reinforcement…

It's everything dependent upon him.

Back in the Clean field Orlik orders his driver to take them rough terrain to one side and the little tank tracker gets a move on,

driving its direction through the weeds and hedges.

The little motors fire up boisterously inside the battling compartment,

furthermore, the little size makes them clasp fiercely in reverse and forward with each knock.

Courageous Orlik comes to a position sitting above the intersection with a shrubbery for disguise.

The tankettes are little two man vehicles with an automatic weapon.

Orlik's TKS has supplanted the assault rifle with the 200mm autocannon fit for discharging 5 round magazines in under a moment.

Orlik has his consideration forward, looking through his sight, holding up in snare.

Before him is an unfilled junction, the hints of motors and tracks forebodingly becoming ever stronger.

The German tanks are on a normal watch and are "closed up" with the lids shut.

No Clean powers have been spotted here for basically a couple of days.

Inside the lead tank is Company administrator, Victor IV Albrecht von Ratibor.

He's German respectability and the oldest child and beneficiary of the Duke of Ratibor.

He's in a Panzer IV B and has great front facing protection and, surprisingly, the sides can hold off little arms and at times hostile to tank shells.

In spite of being in the greatest tank on the Clean war zone, Von Ratibor is cautious while moving toward the junction.

The German tanks slow.

"No one's here". Forward!

Orlik's eyes augment as the German conflict machine rolls into view.

Their trap has worked.

The Germans don't know they're there.

With nerves of steel and under the disguise of the shrub,

Orlik smoothly focuses for the white cross embellished on the Panzer's turret and discharge a solitary shot.

A bang breaks the regular quiet and a solitary 20mm shell speeds for its objective.

It strikes square on the tank's turret side, penetrating clean through.

There's tumult inside the German tank as it halts abruptly.

The portals open and smoke streams from the trapdoors of the stricken Panzer.

The driver and an individual from the turret team rush out of the disaster area abandoning their leader.

A TKS concealed in the brambles doesn't hang tight for requests and starts shooting with its automatic rifle.

The 2 crew members fall, never to rise.

Presently, behind the smoking wreck of the Panzer IV the remainder of the watch comprising of two Panzer 35Ts rolls into view.

Orlik quickly arranges his driver to pull back as the Panzer 35(t's) arise with their firearms pointed straightforwardly towards him.

Inside the 35T the heavy weapons specialists focus.

With their position of safety they can scarcely see the Clean tankettes concealed in the foliage.

The heavy armament specialist murmurs faintly "Verdammte Kakerlaken".

Condemned Cockroaches.

One Panzer shoot then the other and 2 shells shout towards the little structure.

Their shells tear through the foliage around the TKS, yet luckily they miss.

Orlik advises the driver to stop as he starts shooting at the principal German,

be that as it may, with the adversary's turret focused on them there is no point of weakness for them to take advantage of.

The two men watch with sickening dread as many shots pings off innocuously from the Panzer's turret and calculated body sides.

However, luckily the German continues to drive forward and the frame loses its significant point.

Orlik pummels one more magazine into the weapon and shoot pitilessly upon the body side ...

until one at last goes in.

The 20mm punctures the Panzer and strikes square in the ammo stowage,

lighting the powder and setting off a disastrous chain response.

The 35(t's) hatch blows open, heaving a section of fire and smoke very high.

The keep going 35(t) continues forward, driving in front of the consuming machine while shooting a large number of shells in the Shafts' overall heading,

their shots tear tree limbs separated and lift soil high up, however luckily miss the little profile tankettes.

Inside the 35(t) they mercilessly disparage the minuscule tanks 'Kakerlaken !'.

So challenging to kill thus difficult to detect… very much like cockroaches.

Seeing his 2 partners previously obliterated, the leader chooses to make a run for it.

We should get support! Run for the town!

In the event that the team can come to Pociecha they can alarm the other German powers that Clean powers of yet obscure strength are nearby.

In any case, the decided Post won't let the trespasser go.

He arranges his driver to pursue him and the TKS quickly staggers through the woodland in pursuit.

They burst through a bramble and spot the Panzer escaping ceaselessly.

Orlik starts shooting, he strikes the 35(t) across its back with a volley of 20mm, and removing it from commission.

Orlik's tank rolls up to the disaster area 35(t) similarly as two crewmembers stagger out.

Quickly leaving his TKS Orlik points his handgun at the two men.

'Hande Hoch !' he yells.

They lift their hands in give up.

"Who are you?"

"Where's your Commandant?"

The two Germans check out at each other and afterward point towards the burning hot Panzer IV somewhere far off.

Together they head for the panzer and check inside as smoke pours from its open trapdoors.

Doing combating the vapor they figure out how to find

the seriously harmed commandant and aristocrat Victor IV Albrecht von Ratibor still alive.

They courageously drag him out of the quickly developing flares.

Be that as it may, is without any result as he would surrender to his wounds only a couple of moments later.

The 2 enduring Germans are sad.

Yet again through watery eyes one of them reviles

''We would have hit you with our firearms on the off chance that you weren't in those doomed cockroaches."

The Shafts took the name with satisfaction and proceeding alluded to themselves gladly as Cockroaches.

It wasn't the first or last time Orlik would guarantee triumphs upon the infinitely better German Panzers.

He would adapt to the situation again the extremely following day, partaking in a hard guard in the town of Sieraków

where the protectors struck down 7 more German conflict machines.

The genuine subtleties of this commitment have been lost to the ways of the world.

We ventured to attempt to reproduce it overall quite well.

Orlik was granted the Cross of Courage (after the battle) for his staggering activities and is credited as Poland's very first tank pro.

However, it would be in every way to no end, sadly.

Regardless of the Clean powers' earnest attempts and amazing expertise, they couldn't oppose their absence of hardware and assets.

Orlik battled to the last and then some, partaking in the protection of Warsaw and afterward joining the opposition upon Clean acquiescence.

Orlik was caught yet figured out how to get away and endure the conflict.

He turned into an effective modeler in harmony time, completing his certificate in what today is the Foundation of Expressive arts in Lodz,

while Władysław Strzemiński from the Assault of the Dead Men was working in the Foundation as an educator.

While we can't rest assured, we might want to think the men met and perhaps were companions.

Tank Expert Edmund Roman Orlik died on the eighth of April 1982.
