Czech Republic will be receiving 58 T–72 tanks, the Hungary Defense Ministry said on August 25 which has all the required licenses for the shipment of military equipment.

The supplier Excalibur Defense has began the shipment of the tanks no longer used by the Hungarian Armed Forces.

The customer is allowed to resell the tanks only in compliance with the relevant provisions of the CFE Treaty.

The CFE Treaty sets a ceiling on the number of tanks that can be held by any one country and includes further provisions for reduction, withdrawal from service, storage, information exchange and verification.

Hungary has acted responsibly as it has sold the disused tanks with the provision that they cannot be sold to a country against which embargo is enforced. After the transportation to the Czech Republic, in accordance with the CFE Treaty, the Czech authorities are under obligation and in charge of authorizing and monitoring the handling, use and resale of military equipment.
