HUNGARY LOOKS TO UPGRADE MISTRALS AS PART OF MODERNIZATION EFFORT
Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Source: MBDA

BUDAPEST - Hungary's Defense Ministry signed an agreement with MBDA France on August 19 calling for the upgrade and development of the Hungarian armed forces' Mistral air-defense missile system. The Hungarian Mistral system consists of 45 man-portable launchers equipping nine air-defense batteries. The Mistral M2 missiles in question have been in service since 1997 and are those slated to be upgraded. In the meantime, Hungary's Defense Ministry also intends on purchasing the more-advanced Mistral M3 missiles with which to modernize its air-defense capabilities. Hungary also has three SA-6 'Gainful' (2K12 'Kub') self-propelled surface-to-air missile batteries in its inventory.

Upgrading its air-defense network is just one of the many goals outlined in Hungary's National Military Strategy that was unveiled in 2012. Longer-term goals include developing network-based capabilities, improving mobility and protection of land forces, modernizing the helicopter fleet and equipment of the individual infantry soldier, acquiring unmanned aerial vehicles, and bolstering the armed forces' strategic airlift capability. These are to be met through 2022.
