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.

    Manpads and ATGMs have proven to be great force multipliers. If all it takes is MANPADs and ATGMs, Armenia needs to figure out how to domestically produce these.

    BTW, German arms manufacturers are probably kicking themselves in the a$$ now. For the longest time the Leopard 2 was considered to be the best tank in the world, by some people even greater than the Abrams or Challengers. It was never combat tested like the other two. Now that the Turks have actually used it in combat, that myth has been shattered!

      This is a good news for us. Turkey will think twice before dreaming of facing a nation of 60-100000 trained army and full of AA batteries and ATGMs.

      • After a century of advanced tanks protection, it looks like it is getting worse.
        I have never seen a tank blow up so fast, so massive, with all of its munitions all at once.

          • VIDEO: Turkish battle tank blown to pieces by Kurdish forces missile strike in Syria’s Afrin

            BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – Kurdish paramilitary forces in Syria’s Afrin have engaged and destroyed a Turkish Army battle tank with a guided anti-armor missile amid ongoing heavy clashes throughout the region.

            On Monday, a Kurdish anti-tank guided missile team spotted and engaged a stationary Turkish Army main battle tank manning a fire control position atop a hill near the village of Bulbul in Afrin.

            The missile strike not only knocked-out the tank, but destroyed it completely likely killing the entire 4-man crew if they happened to be present inside the armored charge at the time it was hit.

            The battle tank hit by the strike was an Israeli-upgraded variant of the US-built Cold War era (1960s design) M-60 Patton re-named ‘Sabra.’ The Turkish Army has well over one hundred of the armored vehicles in service under the designation M-60T.

            Amid the ongoing offensive by pro-Ankara forces in Afrin, Kurdish fighters have become heavily fixated on the use of anti-tank guided missiles to attack troops and equipment of the Turkish Army – often striking armored vehicles, checkpoints and soldier gatherings.

            • Breaking: Syrian Army looses artillery fire on Turkish forces in south Aleppo, casualties reported

              BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:53 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army or allied paramilitary groups or both have reportedly started shelling the freshly established positions of Turkish forces in the southern countryside of Aleppo province according to both opposition and pro-government sources.

              Opposition sources says that Syrian Army and allied Iranian-linked paramilitary groups have unleashed artillery fire onto recently established positions of the Turkish Army in the strategic Al-Eis area of southern Aleppo province.

              Pro-government sources report that shelling of Turkish military positions has taken place – even claiming wounded among Turkish ranks – but do not specify whether or not the Syrian Army or allied militias or both are responsible for the attacks.

              What is known is that non-Syrian Army pro-government units based opposite the Al-Eis area are mostly Iranian-linked or Iranian (proper) forces.

              On a final note, Turkish Army artillery has apparently responded to the attacks with a rocket artillery salvo against government positions around the town of Shugheydilah.

              Updates to follow.

              • Syrian Army allows massive YPG convoy to travel to Afrin from their lines

                BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) allowed a massive convoy of fighters from the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) to travel through their lines in order to reach the Afrin region.

                According to a military source in Aleppo, the YPG convoy went through the town of Menbeij to the government lines, where they were freely allowed to use the roads to the Afrin region.

                The Syrian government is opposed to the Turkish military’s incursion in Afrin and has agreed to allow the YPG and their allies to send supplies and reinforcements to this front in order to fend off the attackers.
