[UnitList] Hungary


Same on pastebin

Hungary was holding on to the war right to the end. They were Germany’s closest ally in Europe, and Germans shared quite a bit of equipment with them, as well as sold them licenses to build some more.
Some other equipment models were shared with Italians for various reasons - some were WW1 relics ingerited by both and others were purshased from the same sources.
There also was cooperation with Sweden in tank development, with 38M tank and 40M SP AA being of Swedish origin.

Infantry model: based on German, with uniform recolored to more greenish-brown color, like this: uniforma-army.ru/img/vengr26_44.jpg

Also various German equipment:
AFP for fire support
MFP for tank transport


Looks like 31M was not often used with a tripod, so it goes into straight LMG role, and 7M Schwarzlose becomes the HMG. This is quite like Maxim/Vickers and comes from the same pre-WW1 era.
