The Hungarian government has made an offer to Slovakia in an international bid to supply armoured fighting vehicles, the government commissioner in charge of defence projects told public broadcaster M1 late on Wednesday.
Gaspar Maróth said the Lynx vehicles, which he called “the most modern armoured fighting vehicle in the world”, would be produced in Zalaegerszeg, in western Hungary, in cooperation with a German company.
The Slovak order will amount to a total 2 billion euros,
Maróth said, adding that Hungary’s “annual (military vehicle) exports could reach 1-2 billion euros by 2025-2026”. By the end of the decade those exports could amount to 3-4 billion euros, he said.
Slovakia is expected to evaluate the bids and make a decision in the summer, Maróth said.
