Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

  • Re: Nagorno-Karabagh: Military Balance Between Armenia & Azerbaijan

    Thanks for the pics. I wish Zoravar would post his analysis of regional military developments.
    For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
    to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

      I thought all countries were the same...covers off indoors, covers on outdoors, especially during formal inspections.

      Also thought it was funny that el presidente had his name in English on his chest...a little nato-ambitious, are we?

        I respect Zoravar's expertise in this field but I would like to mention one little fact which may make any study of the military balance in the region look academic.

        Since the Georgian war ( maybe earlier ) Russia does not get access to resupply the Gumri base instead has an agreement with Turkey to do so.

        Zoravar may be able to shed some more light on this fact.
        Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
        Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
        Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests

          There was a rumour that Russia supplied its base from turkey, but this was refuted by the turks. Not saying it isn't true, but I wouldn't treat it as fact.

            I wonder how they resupply, through Iran?

              The smaller equipment they use cargo planes, not sure about the larger ones.

                  The starter of this thread would post this information every so often, based on his readings and knowledge of the military equipment used by the Armenian military and the azeri one. If you look in the earlier pages of this thread you will see some of his writings.

                    Who is to say the Russian base isn't supplied via Georgia via containers market "To Gyumri, Armenia...from Santa Klauski"

                    If Armenia can get goods via Georgia, why not the Russian base via in Armenia via an Armenian third party?

                      Practically everything that the base needs can be brought in by the good old IL-76 cargo plane

                      Both Armenian and Russian planes are used for that purposes. The routes used can be via Turkey, Georgia or Iran depending on the prevailing political situation.

                      The IL-76 has over 40 Tons payload capacity. It can bring in replacement boots, missiles and even tanks.

                      Note that a Russian IL-76 plane was used to bring in the fuel (uranium) for our nuclear reactor a couple of years ago.
