In 1911, he produced the first design of a cross-country fighting vehicle with swiveling gun turret a tank, based on American agricultural tractor He called the Motorgeschütz literally "motor-gun" His draft design, more advanced than some of the tank designs of World War I, was rejected both by Austria-Hungary and by the German Empire and no prototype was ever produced He later sought to patent his design, but was told that it might infringe existing patents, so he dropped all plans

In 1941 Burstyn was awarded the War Merit Cross, 1st and 2nd class, with Swords1 At the end of World War II April, 1945 he committed suicide because he feared Soviet captivity2
