ARMED FORCES TO BUY NASAMS AIR DEFENCE SYSTEM

 

The Hungarian Armed Forces will buy NASAMS surface to air missile systems from Norwegian company Kongsberg and US company Raytheon, the office of the commissioner for defence development has said. The short- and mid-range missiles will replace defence systems in place since 1976, increase defence capabilities, and enable Hungary’s military to counter attacks by modern military devices such as drones, Gáspár Maróth said. The missile systems expected to be delivered in 2023 “will restore the army’ defence capabilities, which it lost due to the cutbacks in the 1990s, on a 21st century level,” Maróth said.
