Believe it or not. One of six Mi-24 Hinds gifted to Lebanon by Russia?

I'm interested in Hungarian Gripens' air to ground capability. I've found some media writeups about HuAF wanting to get precision guided weapons but for the love of me i can't find any confirmation. No US foreign sale document on bombs, no mention of a specific contract for specific amount of money in the media, no photograps.

Which is really weird since there IS a photograph of Hungarian Gripen with a Litening pod. Shouldn't there be bombs available as well, then?

These articles are from 2010, almost 8 years old. No Hinds were delivered to Lebanon.

That is a demonstrator Mi-35M, in other words a new build, so even if Mi-24 donations took place at some point, it would not be something as modern.

I remember an official Saab photo of a J-39D with 2x AGM-65 Maverick and the Litening pod...

Nope, buddy.. That's just a demo bird for Rosvertol, later delivered to Iraq, AFAIK...
