Yes, Hungarians could captured more than 100 Soviet tanks. Including not less than 20 T-34. Though if to trust book Csaba Becze in service was more than 10.

It is obvious that Hungarian captured hundreds of russian armoured tanks, but how much are really re-used? miss of spare parts, mechanical problems, supply problem....
Not everybody can be improvised as driver of tank too.
