Hungary brings forward CAS programme for its Gripens

24 April 2014

The Hungarian government plans to fund a HUF2.8 bn (USD13 million) development to enhance the close air support (CAS) capability of its 14 Saab JAS 39 Gripen C/D aircraft, the Hungarian Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 24 April in Budapest.

The programme is already integrated into the MoD's 10-year development plan, but sources told IHS Jane's the government decided to accelerate its implementation in light of the regional security challenge presented by the Ukrainian crisis. The move is also in line with calls to increase NATO defence spending as well as Hungary's pledge to enhance its Gripens' CAS role as a contribution to the proposed Visegrad 4 EU Battlegroup by 2016.
