The Hungarian Army was one of the cornerstones of Warsaw Pact military strategy. As late as 1988, the peacetime strength of personnel in the armed forces reached 106,800 soldiers supported by 1,435 tanks, 2,310 AIFVs/APCs, 1,750 howitzers, 270 anti-tank guns, almost 500 air defence systems, and much more. Today, Hungary is a NATO member, has other tasks such as peacekeeping missions and, as of 2010, the total personnel strength is only 23,000. This publication is on one hand a sentimental journey back to the vast equipment of Warsaw Pact times, on the other hand it allows a closer look onto the current situation with even western vehicles being introduced. Special chapters cover, among others, the BTR-80A wheeled armoured infantry fighting vehicle and the T-72 main battle tank.
