The first ten Gidran 4×4 armoured vehicles ordered by Hungary were presented by the Turkish manufacturer at a ceremony at the Hungarian army base in Tata, in northern Hungary. Another 40 Gidrans will be delivered by Nurol Makina to the base, Defence Minister Tibor Benkő said at the event. Engin Aycol, the CEO of Nurol Makina, said at the ceremony that Hungary is the first EU country to put a Gidran fleet into service in its armed forces. “Our company is ready to invest in Hungary and set up a local unit,” he said. Hungary announced in December 2020 that it is putting into service more than 300 Gidrans, some of which will be manufactured in Kaposvár, in south-western Hungary.
