It should be noted that the ITL M.48/ITL-48 was not to be a jet fighter. Its planned engine was the Jumo 211, many of which (with propellers) had been taken over by Polish authorities after the war.

Hi,

Indeed the CSS-14 was a probable designation of a proposed Go-242 conversion (the conversion has been also referred to as the CSS-242M). After WW2 there were quite a few Go-242 gliders at several airfields in Poland abandoned by the Luftwaffe. So the idea came up to rebuild them into someting along the lines of the Go-244 using captured German engines. In 1948 a project of such a rebuilt was prepared. The aicrcrat was to have BMW-132 engines.

As for the CSS-15 here you've got a scan of the original drawing of the project (with the BMW-132 engines):

There was also another version of the CSS-15 with the Bramo-323 Fafnir engines.

M-9 Ziemowit* trainer project of 1959 (construction team: Stanislaw Jachyra, Adam Borowski, Marek Augustynik) from PZL-Mielec. Span 8.15m, length: 9.2m. It was to be powered by the TO-1 jet engine (by Tadeusz Mirski) that was to develop 400kp thrust.


* Ziemowit is a Polish male first name, also known as a name of a legendary ruler of ancient Poland.
Is that a single-face centrifugal compressor?

Indeed the TO-1 had a single-stage centrifugal compressor.
