Sources and proofs for German tanks in Hungarian usage

Since Gaijin needs evidence for the Hungarian army having used German tanks, to add said German tanks to the Hungarian sub-tree, I started this thread to provide evidence for it.

Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. F1 of the Royal Hungarian 2nd Army at the Don river with German troops and StuG, Russia, 1942.

Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. F2 in service of the Royal Hungarian 2nd Honvéd Army’s 1st Armored Field Division, Russia 1942.

After the fights in August 1942, the Hungarian 1st Armored Field Division got 10 Pz.IV F2 tanks from the Germans to refill their losses. These tanks were operated by Hungarian crews and received Hungarian registration numbers; 1H-834, 1H-835 1H-836, 1H-854, 1H-859, 1H-860, 1H-861, 1H-862, 1H-863 and 1H-864. All of them were destroyed by the Soviet forces during their winter assault in 1943

Gaijin never said they needed evidence for German tanks in Hungarian use. In the article “Sons of Attila — Answering your questions” they said that, alongside different variants of domestic Hungarian tanks and the 40.M Nimrod SPAA, German vehicles in Hungarian service may appear in the Italian tree in the future, both in the tech tree and as event vehicles.

Q: One of the reasons for asking to add the Hungary branch to Italy was Tigers/Panthers they had, being more heavily armored vehicles to diversify gameplay for Italy. It would also be nice to see more domestic vehicles, such as Turan II, Toldi, Zrinyi I, as well as the 40M Nimrod SPAA. Are there any plans for them?
A: Different variants of the domestic tanks, as well as German vehicles may come to the game in the future, both in the tech tree and as event vehicles. The Nimrod SPAA might come to the game in the future as well.
