Main article: Hungarian national focus tree

Flag of Hungary Hungary, along with three other nations situated between Flag of Germany Germany and the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union, gets a unique national focus tree as part of the Death or Dishonor expansion. Without the expansion, Hungary utilizes the Generic national focus tree instead.

The Hungarian national focus tree can be divided into 3 branches and 6 sub-branches:

  • Political Branch
This branch allows Hungary to change its political stance.
  • Strengthen the Monarchists Sub-branch
This branch allows Hungary to elect a Democratic, Fascist, or a Habsburg King and could potentially re-create the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
  • Strengthen Fascists Sub-branch
This branch allows Hungary to become Fascist and create Greater Hungary and either join the Axis or create their own faction with Italy.
  • Council of People's Commissars Sub-branch
This branch allows Hungary to become Communist and join the Comintern.
  • Industrial Revitalization Branch
This branch allows Hungary to develop its industry and unlock research slots. One of its sub-branches is connected to the Establish the Air-Force sub-branch.
  • Secret Rearmament Branch
This branch allows Hungary to cast off the Treaty of Trianon and start researching military tech.
  • Establish the Air-Force Sub-branch
This sub-branch allows the research and licensing of the Airforce.
  • Army Maneuvers Sub-branch
This sub-branch gives research bonuses for various types of Army equipment.
  • Naval Warfare Sub-branch
This sub-branch deals with the Navy but requires that Hungary controls a coastal state as they lack one in 1936.

Politics[edit]

Ideology[edit]

Hungary starts in 1936 as a non-aligned country with an election in March of 1939. The ruling party in 1936 is the F48P and its leader is Miklós Horthy. Hungary in the 1939 game start is a fascist country.

National Spirits[edit]

Without the Death or Dishonor DLC enabled, Hungary starts with no national spirits. With the Death or Dishonor DLC enabled, Hungary starts off with the Treaty of Trianon, which disarms Hungary. This can be removed by either negotiating with the Little Entente, proposing the Bled Agreement, or by renouncing it if you choose the fascist route of the tree.

Treaty of Trianon
  • Recruitable Population: -0.50%
  • Military Factory construction speed -50.00%
The Treaty of Trianon is, in many ways, similar to the Treaty of Versailles, crippling our military and preventing rearmament. Seeing it altered or abolished must be our premier goal. We can do this by seeking a Rapprochement with the Little Entente, proposing the Bled Agreement, or by renouncing it altogether. The last option will be widely considered as very aggressive and may provoke a strong response.

Strategies and guides[edit]

When playingFlag of Hungary Hungary, there are two achievements you can gain: Miklos Horthy And The Habsburg Prince and Better Than Szent István. Let's look at the Habsburg Prince achievement. For one, you need to do the focus Balanced Budget and elect Otto von Habsburg to the Habsburg throne. Then you need to demand a referendum on unification with Austria, and there are two outcomes: war or unification. If Austria peacefully unifies, that means they have voted to reunite. If Austria chooses no or denies the referendum, then go to war. Keep in mind you should have Historical AI Focus off, and it does not affect achievements. Put your troops on the border and head for the cities. Capturing Vienna and Salzburg will end the war quickly enough for you to annex it before Germany does the Anschluss. From there, you can proclaim the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Your capital will stay in Budapest.

For the rest of the achievement, you have to do some invasions. You need Franche-Comte, Lombardy, Emiliano Romagna, Tuscany, Lebanon, Palestine, all of Hungary, all of Austria, all of Czechoslovakia, Oberschlescein and Niederschlescein to get the achievement. If you really want to get Better Than Szent István, the easiest way is to invade Yugoslavia. Take all of Yugoslavia, use their dockyards to build a battleship and use political power to get Miklos Horty as a Naval commander, getting you the achievement. Compelting the rest of the Habsburg Prince achievement means war with Italy, Germany, France and Britian. The fastest way is to invade Germany first. Head north, take the cities and annex Germany. This will get you two provinces closer. Next, invade France. Just heading into the Maginot Line is going to be a suicide mission, so head through Belgium (Schlieffen 2: Electric Boogaloo) and Britain is almost certainly going to guaranteee France or Belgium, so you can also bring down Britain with them. And Italy might just join the Axis to bog you down, so hoping that the Austro-Hungarian military has been built up significantly, you can do a mass invasion of Western Europe. Getting to Paris will bring down the French, and they will surrender after about half of the country is occupied. Then go around Switzerland to Italy's western border and attack. This will be a surprise attack for the Italians, so rush down the peninsula and do a naval invasion of Palestine and Lebanon. Go down to Egypt, seize the Suez Canal (you should also have seized Malta and Cyprus by now) and march into Algeria. Once you have Algiers, navally invade Gibraltar. This will make supply lines to the British Raj and the Antipodes longer and costlier, weakening the eastern half of the British Empire. Then put all your troops on the north coast of France and navally invade England. When the treaties come, take as much land as possible and what you also need for the achievement. As soon as you hold all the provinces necessary, you can get the achievement.
