Hungary yesterday announced plans to sell its old Soviet-made tanks and fighter planes, saying they were in “very good condition” but expensive to maintain.
Zoltan Borbiro, state secretary for the defense ministry, said MIG 29 fighter jets and T-72 tanks, military equipment and clothing would all be up for sale later this year.
“Since Hungary’s transition from communism in 1990, the army has been organized on a professional and modern basis, and a part of our military inventory is no longer compatible with NATO requirements,” he said.
“It won’t be an easy sale,” he added.
Hungary sold 77 of its stock of 180 T-72 tanks to the newly formed Iraqi army in 2005.
