History.
The Kubus is a notable example of an improvised armoured car used during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Created by the Polish resistance, the Home Army, Kubus was constructed in just two weeks amid intense fighting against the German occupiers. Its inception began on August 8, 1944, in a secret workshop within the capital. The vehicle was built on the chassis of a Chevrolet 157 truck and featured armour made from steel plates and iron elements scavenged from the ruins of Warsaw. The Kubus was equipped with a Browning wz. 1928 machine gun and could carry around a dozen soldiers. Despite its rudimentary construction, the Kubus participated in several critical operations, including an assault on the University of Warsaw. The vehicle's survival and preservation symbolise the ingenuity and determination of the Polish resistance fighters. Today, Kubus is displayed at the Polish Army Museum in Warsaw, commemorating its role in the struggle for freedom.
