Cet avion répondait au désir des militaires polonais qui désirait un remplacant valable du Karas P23 /43. Celui-ci souffrait de nombreuses insuffisances tels: problèmes avec le profils des ailes qui empêchait une plaine capacité en bombes. Un armement trop léger et un vitesse trop faible. On le verra loprs de la campagne de Pologne, ils furent presque tous abattus par la Luftwaffe.

One of the two prototypes was used operationally during the Sept. 1939 airwar as a courrier between Poland and neighboring countries.

The plane was a succesor of the P23 /43 Kara.
