The US State Department has approved Hungary’s request to buy 60 AIM-120C-7/C-8 AMRAAM-ER missiles, two spare AIM-120C-7/C-8 AMRAAM-ER guidance sections and related equipment from Raytheon for $230 million.

“The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Hungary of sixty (60) AIM-120C-7/C-8 AMRAAMER missiles, and two (2) spare AIM-120C-7/C-8 AMRAAM-ER guidance sections and related equipment for an estimated cost of $230 million,” Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) said in a statement.

The sale is in support of Hungary's acquisition of the National Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (NASAMS) air defense system and would provide a full range of protection from imminent hostile cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, rotary wing and fixed wing threats.

In August 2019, the country purchased 180 AIM–120C-7 AMRAAM anti-aircraft missiles for $500 million.

The new package includes four AMRAAM-ER training missiles (CATM-120C); missile containers; spare and repair parts; cryptographic and communication security devices; precision navigation equipment; software, site surveys; weapons system equipment and computer software support; publications and technical documentation; common munitions and test equipment; repair and return services and equipment; personnel training and training equipment; integration support and test equipment; and US Government and contractor, engineering, technical and logistics support services; and other related elements of logistical and program support.

quite the modernization Hungary has going on, but I wonder how long it will take before they hit wall where they either can't afford a system or stumble upon some redtape
