Military receives another 13 Gidran armoured vehicles

The Hungarian armed forces are receiving another 13 Gidran armoured vehicles at its base in Tata, in western Hungary, on Tuesday and Wednesday, the defence minister said in a statement.

Kristof Szalay-Bobrovniczky said the new vehicles manufactured in Turkey will be used by recruits who joined the forces in the wake of a government campaign in February.

The minister said the Gidrans had first arrived at another base, in Kaposvar, in southern Hungary, where they were equipped with radios and other systems in preparation for their deployment.

There are already 10 Gidrans in Tata, serving a rifle company under NATO’s Forward Land Forces Battle Group, the minister said.
