The hall where fifteen years ago the missiles of the air defence artillery battalion were kept now houses the exhibition which was created for the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Hungarian Air Defence branch of service. In the same place visitors can see those assets whose preservation is extremely important for several reasons.

While expanding the Museum, our aim is to collect in one place the technological assets that were used by the Hungarian air defence forces during the 20th century and present them to the visitors in a systematized manner.


The early types of air defence missiles were filled with special liquid fuel – a mixture of an oxidizer for ignition and a highly combustible material. This multi-component propellant was loaded into the special tanks of the missiles with the help of fuel pumps that fully met the safety requirements of the period. This equipment is on display in this area.
