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.

    The Azeris have fired an Israeli Spike anti-tank guided missile on the direction of Martuni, but we have no losses.

      We already knew they had these but thanks Azerbaijan for firing at nothing and letting us know. I'm sure Iran will be pleased to clarify this too.

        Iran will probably get specimens from Azerbaijan one way or another, if not already, and copy them.
        Unlike Japanese, Chinese, or German technologies, Israeli tech is easy to copy because it's not complicated.
        It could be because Israel being small country tries to keep things simpler and easier to produce. Advanced, quality and ingenious, but simple.

          Shekelistan gets $5 Billions a year in mainly the latest advanced American arms technologies.
          They modify the ones that they think they can sell. India and azeristan are the only countries that tried them and got major disappointments.
          Most of their marketing are done in fictitious 3d animations or fake videos promoting their copied crap.
          They only credit I give them is in intelligence, surveillance and hacking.

              That was a classic slaughter house special and unforgettable lesson for the shekelist to stop bulling countries.
              The famous IDF female soldier that was saying, I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of this tank. And now ... We wouldn't want to be inside that same tank.

                The officer and soldiers who held back the Azerbaijani reconnaissance squad on Feb 25 received monetary benefits from the Armenian National Guard.

                  Maybe our army can discredit Israeli technology soon and teach them lesson in that way.
                  But, Iwant to be honest and fair, I have limited knowledge about tanks though, I think merkavas are still more protected than Russian tanks. Is this a right assumption?
                  It could be a miss assumption because there are many Russian tanks all over the wars compared to merkavas around.
                  But every time I see a Russian tank get hit and explode it sends shivers down my spine.
                  I don't like comparison videos in YouTube because they are much propaganda.
                  But looking back at one sided tank battles between Arabs and shekelists (though main 60's and 70's wars British centurions were used) I often wonder, did Arabs put that bad of name on Russian tanks or they are really inferior?

                    I am not an expert either. The Russians have counter measures as in explosives, sensors that might sometimes work sometimes not. At this point it is not the skin protection is what prevents the missile from hitting it. I am not not big on old moving metals and wouldn't want to be in one. I am all for small, lightweight, intelligent sensors, drones, guided small "tanks".

                      I'm pretty much into tanks.
                      Yes, the Merkava III and IV are better protected than the T-72A,M, and M1 variants.
                      The T-72B, B1 with kontakt-1 is better than the 3 variants I listed above, but they're still inferior to the Merk.
                      The Merk has the engine in the front side of the hull to increase protection, while the Russian tanks have it in the rear.
                      The T-90A with welded turret performed better than the T-72s in Syria.
                      The main issue with the T-72 is the placement of the ammo compartment which makes it detonate like crazy almost everytime it's hit with an ATGM.
                      We have one T-72A that exploded into pieces last April.
