The Hungarian army is purchasing two KC-390 military transport aircraft from Brazilian aerospace manufacturer Embraer, the secretariat of government commissioner Gaspar Maróth said.

Representatives of the two partners signed the sale and purchase agreement on Tuesday, the statement said.

The airplanes, which are capable of carrying up to 23 tonnes of cargo, will arrive in Hungary in 2023-2024, the statement added.
