Hungary signed a contract for the supply of German infantry fighting vehicles Lynx KF41

The Hungarian army will receive the German Lynx KF41 infantry fighting vehicles. According to the bmpd blog, citing the press service of the Rheinmetall group, the Hungarian Ministry of Defense has signed a contract for the supply of 218 new Lynx infantry fighting vehicles.


On the part of Hungary, the document was signed by the commander of the country's armed forces, Colonel-General Ferenc Korom, on the part of the Rheinmetall group - by President and CEO Armin Papperger. Under the agreement, Rheinmetall will supply Hungary with 218 new Lynx KF41 infantry fighting vehicles, nine Buffalo armored recovery vehicles on chassis tank Leopard 2, exercise equipment, and spare parts. In addition, the agreement includes training and instruction and maintenance. The cost of the agreement is more than $ 2 billion.

It is noted that in the version for the Hungarian Armed Forces, the KF41 Lynx BMP will be equipped with a LANCE manned turret with a 30-mm automatic cannon. The KF41 BMP has a capacity of 12 people - three crew members and nine paratroopers.

The supply of equipment is divided into several stages: in the first, by the beginning of 2023, 46 BMPs and nine ARVs will be delivered. The remaining 172 BMPs will be produced at the joint venture to be built in Hungary.

Recall that earlier Hungary signed a contract for the supply of new German MBT Leopard 2A7 + (Leopard 2A7HU) and 24 self-propelled howitzers PzH 2000 caliber 155-mm / 52. All equipment will be delivered in the period 2023-2025.

      They are giving up Soviet weapons. They now have 360 ​​80 / 80A armored personnel carriers. Instead, it looks like.
      And so a very serious strengthening of the army is planned.

        But Hungary ...?
        Hungary shares borders with Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Croatia, Austria and ... Ukraine. With the first five states, the conflict is almost unbelievable. Perhaps with an eye to the future section of the Ukrainian pie ...

              Oops! They look there as a "fifth point", into which they periodically look and "push", which is why drooling falls on the Soviet Transcarpathia, now a branch of "hospital 404". But you should not indulge yourself with illusions - the rats, as in 1941, also mapped out their plots in our Motherland. Only the "out-of-seated Punils" had the "pipe" at the exit "zeroed". Despite the daily efforts of the "support group", including in "Cheburnet".

              Likewise, the American "heavy" ones fall short of these indicators. They consider "heavy" brigades with tanks and infantry on TBTR.

                The United States does not have any prefixes to the MBR. All the BRTBR. / MBr. called "heavy" formations, all infantry "Strykers", all LPBr, DShBr. and VDBr. "light" ....
                So the formative MBR. The Hungarian Army simply refers to the "heavy" brigades, but only in American terminology, Hungary does not have such terminology ... at the moment there are only two PBRs in the Hungarian Army, one of which (most likely the 5th) will be transformed into MBr.

        Forgotten the Magyars, as all their war rabble was buried near Voronezh. The order was clear - not to take the Magyars prisoner. And why? Yes, because as the Magyars committed atrocities, even Bandera did not commit atrocities.

          218 - Is it a lot or a little? Well, by today's standards, it's significant.

          PS By the way, it is important what political obligations the contract is subject to. And then, you know, the Hungarians completely, completely refuse to play the game of tolerance towards migrants, the sorosyat was kicked out at will; and this is one of the most important postulates of the policy of the same Germany. And no matter how it turns out that Germany will refuse to supply combat vehicles because of Hungary's stubbornness.

            I think a lot, but for the Hungarian Army there are a lot, in fact, the 5th PBR. after re-equipping with new tanks, replacing the armored personnel carrier with an infantry fighting vehicle and re-equipping its hell with an ACS becomes the MBR. it will probably be transferred to the NATO Command in Europe under operational control ...
            PS By the way, it is important what political obligations the fulfillment of the contract is conditioned by.

            I think that the Hungarians want to get their patron in the EU, incl. to resolve their issues related to the rights of Hungarians in Ukraine ...
            Hungary takes part in the war in Afghanistan. In February 2003, a medical contingent was sent to Afghanistan, operating under German command until December 2003. Later, on August 1, 2004, the first combat unit arrived in the country - a light infantry company, and later - other military units.

            I looked at the WIKI list of weapons and military equipment of the Ground and Air Force, all of them come from the USSR / Russia or the EU ... nothing American ...
            I think that the Hungarians hate the Anglo-Saxons (in contrast to other Eastern European countries) no less than the Germans, and this brings them closer together ...

      Each NATO member state must allocate forces to the operational subordination of NATO, respectively, one of the two PBRs. The Hungarian Army will be allocated to the operational subordination of NATO, in one or another operational direction of Eastern Europe (the Baltic States, Poland, etc.) .... accordingly it will look ugly, if, for example, the 5th RBB. The Hungarian Army on a short-term basis, deployed for example near Kaunas, will be armed with BTR-80, T-72, artillery artillery monuments D-20 ...

    Hungarians make a serious army, and long term. And what is this question for? They have questions to Rumunia and Ukraine and Croatia and Slovakia and Austria and even Serbia. Viktor Orban is a good president and has a good national policy for the Hungarians. He himself is an independent president in Europe and is independent, does not want to accept migrants, LGBT, the IMF kicked out, pressed the bank for foreigners, raised the living standards of Hungarians. If there were more Orbans in Europe, we would all be better off. Look how it is conceived to greatly raise the level of the equipped Hungarian army. One can only envy the Hungarians for such a President.
