Defence Minister: First Hungarian-made Lynx rolls off production line

The first Hungarian-made Lynx armoured infantry fighting vehicle rolled off Rheinmetall's assembly line in Zalaegerszeg, in western Hungary, on Saturday, the defence minister said.

Kristof Szalay-Bobrovniczky called the event “a historic milestone” in the Hungarian army’s development programme, according to a ministry statement.

The minister said the Lynx is “the most modern, state of the art infantry fighting vehicle of our time, which reflects the cultural change that has begun in the Hungarian Armed Forces”.

Creating a modern, high-tech defence force will ensure that the Hungarian army “can not only effectively provide for the defence of our country, but can also fully meet its obligations to international allies,” the minister said.
