An account of one of the Zrinyi`s actions can be found in "Magyar Steel" where five Zrinyi`s ambushed a number of T-34/85`s resulting in eighteen T-34`s destroyed for the loss of one damaged Zrinyi, subsequently all remaining Zrynyi`s were damaged but two were still drivable and were used to salvage the others, so when properly employed the Zrinyi was sufficient in it`s performance against Soviet medium armour.
If I can remember correctly an article detailing the Zrinyi`s career appeared as a follow-up article to Steve Zaloga`s build-up feature of the old Commander kit Zrinyi during 1999 ?

Article on the Zrinyi's career
July 13 2012, 5:53 AM
Thank you, Stirling, for this interesting bit! Do you have a hint for me, where to find the article, you mention?
I really had no idea about how the Zrinyi performed: Depending on the versions it either looks like a Sturmgeschütz or a Jagdpanzer and so one can imagine, which way it was used. But apart from the fact that with all the bolts and non-sloped armour the Zrinyis look a little "old fashioned" (exeption: the broad tracks) at least for the later phases of WW2, their performance will mostly have depended on the degree of experience of the crews and the leading officers, as well as on the general tactics of "hungarian tank warfare".
Now I am really looking foreward to see the first built Zrinyis of the new Bronco kit!
