History of the Hungarian Air Force

The beginnings of the Hungarian Air Force can be traced to the Austro-Hungarian Air Force, warthunder.com reports.

The warthunder.com said, Hungarian aviators took part in the First World War, and pilots such as Ferenc Gräser, István Fejes and József Kiss became aces. After the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918 Hungary was for a short time a communist republic – however, the Hungarian Soviet Republic, which operated a small Hungarian Red Air Force, collapsed on August 1st 1919.

According to warthunder.com, the Treaty of Trianon, signed on the 4th of June 1920, effectively banned Hungary from having it’s own air force. However, similarly to Germany and Austria, the Kingdom of Hungary began rebuilding their own air force, disguising it as private air clubs. This fact was revealed to the world in 1938 when the Bled agreement revoked the arms restrictions placed on Hungary after Trianon. At the time, the Royal Hungarian Air Force’s main fighter was the Italian made Fiat CR.32, with the German Junkers Ju-86 serving as the main bomber. A small Hungarian force was then dispatched to Czechoslovakia, with the aim of supporting ground units in the capture of the Upper Hungary province.
