Three New German Arms Factories in Hungary

Germany’s Rheinmetall is currently building three new factories in Hungary for tanks, ammunition and explosives. Bloomberg reported February 17 that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán wants to shape Hungary into a major arms exporter. Hungary’s prior cooperation with German carmakers is serving as a blueprint for the cooperation with Rheinmetall.

Andreas Bock, Hungary analyst at the think tank European Council on Foreign Relations, told Germany’s n-tv:

The arms industry has played a rather subordinate role for the Hungarian economy. But I think that will change soon. It is obvious that beyond these quarrels, there is definitely a close relationship between Hungary and the German economy. Germany is Hungary’s number one economic partner, both in terms of trade exchange and investment.

Despite major concerns about corruption and the state of the rule of law, good location factors help attract companies. We’re talking about over 2,500 German manufacturers and more than 200,000 employees in Hungary. Very important are the comparatively low labor costs, well-trained personnel, a low corporate income tax and government subsidies.

The Trumpet says: For decades the Trumpet and its predecessor, the Plain Truth, have foretold Hungary and Germany’s alliance (request a free copy of He Was Right). The Bible refers to the German military empire with the prophetic symbol of a beast in Revelation 17 and notes that 10 nations or groups of nations will join this empire. We are seeing this prophesied military empire form under German rule.

And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings ….
—Revelation 17:12-14
