This engine was needed by the Soviet Union to rebuild after the Second World War.
It was produced in Poland, Finland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and the USSR.
The largest number were produced in Poland. Of the nearly 800 built by the Fablok factory in Poland, all but about 14 were exported.
Of those that stayed in Poland, 6 were used in the forest industry at Cisna. The others at industrial sites.
