ORP Dzik (original name: P.52) was a British and later Polish submarine from the Second World War. The keel for this unit was laid in 1941, and the launch took place in October 1942. The unit was commissioned in December 1942. The total length of the ship at the time of launching was 60 meters and 4.9 meters wide. The displacement in immersion was about 800 tons, and the maximum speed in immersion was about 9 knots. The armament consisted of four 533 mm torpedo tubes, 1 76 mm gun and 3 7.7 mm machine guns.

ORP Dzik was one of the 49 U-type submarines. The units of this type were built to operate in relatively shallow waters and did not have a high surface speed. Another weakness was the lack of an advanced fire control system. P.52 was taken over by the Polish Navy in connection with the loss of ORP Jastrzębie and renamed ORP Dzik. The unit served primarily in the Mediterranean basin, and also took part in Operation Husky, i.e. the landing in Sicily in July 1943. ORP Dzik sunk five enemy ships with a total displacement of approx. 8,650 GRT and - additionally - three landing ferries. After the war, ORP Dzik was returned to the Royal Navy, later handed over to the Danish Navy, where it served in the years 1947-1957.
