I am hoping that someone here can help me out with some information (in English) about the Polish 20/25TP heavy tank

Not much out there arc. Almost everything is in Polish (there's always machine translators like http://www.poltran.com/).

A few English results:

http://www.1jma.dk/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6662

lots of side views (variants, size comparisons, etc., some labeled as KSUS) but no real written detail.

side view, specs, general description

I don't know if you need this anymore, but i managed to find this:

http://www.achtungpanzer.com/pol/polprot.htm

20/25TP (Heavy Tank)

multi-turret heavy tank,

similar design to Russian T-28 tank,

three projects were made:
BBT design (1936/37) - 23tons, 40mm Anti-Aircraft or 75mm gun, 7 men crew, 40km/h max. speed and 50mm armor,

KSUS design - 22tons, 40 or 75mm and 35mm armor,

PZInz design - 25tons, unknown and 80mm armor,


I also found this interesting website:

http://www.odkrywca.pl/pokaz_watek.php?id=182824

It's in polish, but it contains many drawings and actual photos of polish weapons.
