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.
The Hungarian Ministry of Defence has ordered 20 H145M military helicopters equipped with the HForce weapon management for its military modernisation programme Zrinyi 2026. Together with the helicopters, Airbus will provide training and support package, Airbus said in a statement Friday
