Germany Hands Over Trucks and Helmets to NATO Partner

The Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister of Defense, Christian Schmidt, recently handed over defence equipment to Hungarian Defence Minister Csaba Hende in Feldkirchen, Germany.

Ten Unimog 1300 trucks and 500 combat helmets of German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) changed hands during a ceremony. Within the next few weeks, the equipment will be transported to Hungary and will there be prepared to enter service with the Hungarian Armed Forces.

Germany shares a long-time and successful security-political cooperation with its EU and NATO partner Hungary. This cooperation has also proven its worth during the joint operation in northern Afghanistan. The recent handover of defence equipment also serves as a substantiation of the good cooperation of the two countries. Asian Defence News
