HM Arzenál ZRt . successfully cooperated with the winner of the short-range anti-aircraft missile contest, the French-English Matra BAe Dynamics (MDB), and its Italian-Swiss subcontractor Oerlikon-Contraves (OC).
The results of the contest were announced at the beginning of 1997, and the winner had until the end of 1999 to fulfill his obligation to deliver the three Mistral anti-aircraft missile batteries. The Hungarian side also imposed requirements regarding the design and equipment of the missile batteries, for which the MDB did not have ready-made solutions.

In order to satisfy these requirements, to carry out the necessary developments and for production, the French side concluded a contract with HM Arzenál ZRt.
In the framework of this contract, HM Arzenál ZRt. developed and produced the necessary quantity of the Atlas Interface Platform, which solves the installation of the Mistral anti-aircraft missile launchers on transport vehicles and the storage and transportation of the tools directly required for combat work, and battery-level logistics wagons suitable for the transport and operation of auxiliary materials, tools, control and communication equipment.

Also within the framework of this program, as a subcontractor of OC, HM Arzenál ZRt. manufactured the radar housings and digital signal processing electronics requiring SMD technology for the fire control radars of the anti-aircraft missile batteries (Mistral Command Post). As a result of the successful cooperation, HM Arzenál ZRt. was the first in Hungary to receive a NATO supplier code.

In 2004, hungarians made the Mistral air defense missile system suitable for cooperation with the K-1P fire control system.
The computer workplace of the Mistral Command Post (MCP) received a TCO terminal, similar to the terminal built into the fire guidance radar (SZURN) of the KUB system.

It can use Mistral 2 and Mistral 3 missiles. The hungarian army acquired Mistral 3 missiles in 2016 which have more range and are better than the Mistral 2.
