The following article is a List of aircraft of Poland during World War II.

List of 1939-1945[1][edit]

(Made vs Used in Combat)

Fighters[edit]

  • PZL P.11 (175 vs 140)
  • PZL P.7 (105 VS 30) note: obsolete by the time of the war; used out of necessity

Light Bombers/Tactical Bombers[edit]

  • PZL 23A Karaś (30 vs 0) note: experimental version
  • PZL 23B Karaś (170 vs 120)

Medium/Heavy Bombers[edit]

  • PZL 37 Los (61 vs 36) due to unjustifiable objections from the Polish Army too few were made and too few crews were ready by 1 SEP 39
  • PZL 30 Zubr (30 vs 0) note: obsolete by the time of the war

Recon (Close Support) Planes[edit]

1939 Totals[edit]

771 made vs 421 used note: leaving the obsolete planes on the airfields and not using them in combat was, perhaps, one of the bigger errors that the Polish High Command committed; in spite of that the crews would have been most likely shot down, they could have kept the Luftwaffe engaged.
