Here is my favourit part  ;)s

Hungarian roundels on ground vehicles:

Pz38(t) ausf G (a big part of armored forces) - two side of case and on the engine (to the own air force) - it usable preferably on F version

Hungarian102.jpg

 

35932402702_9cec303979_o.jpg

 

PzIVF1 (the other big part of armored forces) - two side and back of case - on center of left side

look good the tactical number on the rear stowage of turret

28845231837_dcabd31352_o.jpg

 

and the tactical number on the sides of turret

28845222427_2f4336ac87_c.jpg

 

and the roundel behind the side vision device of front MG gunner on the right side of case

43733837342_a688ca0acb_c.jpg

 

on the right side of rear armour - look good the tactical number on the rear stowage of turret

43065258964_0e21d65fcd_o.jpg

 

Stug III G (later 1944-45) - two side of skirt and on back of case

usable with unicolor

stug-iii-01.jpg

 

and with camouflage painting (the camo was on the skirts originally)

29911063758_4f6dc7ef36_c.jpg

 

and on this place (yes, I know this is a German, but I saw a picture... what I don't found now yet)

tumblr_m3sm2rkPBo1qg5z8jo1_500.gif

 

captured M3 Stuart - two side of case

be5a024caa6cc312827251e986275bd5.jpg

 

The Hungarian forces used many other vehicles (many original Hungarian too), but these ingame tanks wear original Hungarian roundels.

The other German vehicles (PzIV F2, G, H, Panther G, Tiger E, Marder II, Hetzer, French captured tanks,), what the Hungarians used, we got with original German marks and used Russian captured light and some medium tanks (T-28, T-34).

 

This Hetzer picture isn't original according to many, but looks good.  :Ps

hetzer3HUNGARY.jpg

 

The Hungarians used marks, roundels by German standard, and if someone want at the Hungarian used or similar types vehicles, need using German places. The Hungarian forces used the original German paintings and in winter whitewash too.
