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.

          Azerbaijan and Armenia has anywhere between 316-500 tanks (T90/T80/T72B/T55)

          Armenia alone has 204 IFVs, Azerbaijan has 189. Armenia with NKR have 300-400 IFVs.

          Azerbaijan has 680 armored cars. (African Union MRAPs, Otokar junk)

          Armenia has 71 APC/BTRs Azerbaijan has 165
          Thank you for the information.
          What is the value of the Mig 29s in regards to the given terrain, overall geography, military objectives, and Armenian countermeasures

          Also, what are the chances that Armenia actually possesses the Iskander missle itself, not under Russian control in Armenia

              Patrolling the border with a chopper is very effective.......the wreckage is in NKR so there is no question about intentions. .
              Normally you would have one or two crew flying the one aircraft (not a gun ship) at high alt (say 1 to 4 thousand ft) and not so fast.Now at 2 to 4 miles away it makes an easy target for any soldier trained with a shoulder fired missile. No chance for that Heli other than emergency landing (auto totation and landing spot). Now if the same chopper was coming at them across the border at max speed tree top level with weapons then they would not be such easy targets. The pilot is ready for anything......but in this case the pilot was not expecting to get shot at with feaking a rocket.
              Defense mechanism is pilot skill, chaffs, altitude, luck.....now if you are flying a gunship then you are more protected and a bigger threat.

              The airport itself is roughly 25km from the line of contact I believe. Also, what are the chances they do shoot down a civilian aircraft.
              The have the capability but I think the chances are low.....then again you have a baboon finger on the trigger, they hate us beyond hate itself....however it would be a political suicide for Aliyev.
              If they shoot they will claim they thought it was a military aircraft.

                  I'm not going to dispute on who's land the helicopter fell on, that has been acknowledged by both sides. I'm just going to quote this article..
                  http://news.am/eng/news/239254.html

                  20 METERS! Although the helicopter fell on our side it was flying either right on the front line or was on no mans land. I'm not trying to justify what the azeris did. It is a much graver provocation to shoot down a helicopter, that to fly that close to the adversary, but why would the orders have been, to send a Strategic asset of our people right onto, or past a "HOT" front line. We all saw the video and saw how close the point of missile impact was to the point of contact with earth, so my point is why were they ordered to do such a thing. In order to fly a strategic asset on a mission like this, a order has to come from VERY high up. No Armenian pilot is going on any joy ride. I'm just curious what minister or political figurehead lives in La La land, and whether they will be calling the shots during the next war. I feel it's reasonable to ask that question. All this BS about it being a training mission is irritating. There's plenty of land to conduct "training missions" elsewhere. It was meant as a sign of "strength" and "courage", but someone's miscalculations resulted in the loss of three lives and a strategic asset of ALL ARMENIANS. Screw azeris for what they did but I can't blame them either. If an Azeri heli flew that close to a section of trench I was in charge of, I would order a shoot down as well.
                  I just hope our leadership isn't as reckless when the time comes...
