Milan Szekelyhidi do you know if the book "Weapons of the Royal Hungarian Army" is available in english ? ifso would you be kind enough to supply further details.


I think so, it didn't publish in English.
I try it translate all information, but my English language is poor.

The book writes for tanks, assault guns, anti-tanks, armoured cars, cars, lorries, armoured trains, planes and little information for motorcycles.

I attached the book of picture.
In the book front you can see 4 Hungarian armour graphics:
Up:
WM-21 Sólyom = Hawk near reconnaissance plane
MÁVAG-Re-2000 Héja = Falcon (Héja-M) fighter

Down:
V-4 light tank
39M Csaba reconnaissance armoured car

In the book back you can see the Royal Hungarian Army war flag of infantry units (1938).

You may find interesting an article on the Tas tank http://www.haditechnika.hu/Archivum/199301/930111.htm with pictures at http://www.haditechnika.hu/Archivum/199301/P11.htm. It is in Hungarian, but can easily be translated using Google tools (http://www.haditechnika.hu/Archivum/199301/P11.htm) into something more understable to those who don't speak Hungarian.

The pictures:

Indeed it might have been a very interesting and good looking tank.

Very impressive. If it was going to be mechanically sound, I think it was better than the Panther. Lean and hard hitting. A true medium tank.
