American help to the Hungarian Armed Forces

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

The American military gave fourteen HMMWV type multi-purpose armored vehicles equipped with radios and special night-vision devices to the Hungarian military.

The vehicles have been handed over to Hungarian Defense Minister Csaba Hende at the Szolnok Helicopter Base by U.S. Ambassador to Hungary, Eleni Tsakopoulos Kounalakis.

The multi-purpose armored vehicles arrived as part of the ten million dollars Coalition Support Fund the U.S. Congress approved in the spring of 2010 for the Hungarian Army Special Operations capability improvements.
