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.

    Those are remnants from old Soviet times Mr. Internet Warrior. Those are hardly recognized as de jure Azeri territory today. Same goes for the enclave in Azerbaijan.

    We do control those territories.

    Why are you wetting your pants over this? They are less than 2 miles wide, and are not actually recognized as Azeri territory or Armenian territory.

    Im willing to bet the Soviet government drew ethnic boundaries around 4 villages. It means nothing, and all are in control of Armenia with no dispute over it. Azerbaijan doesn't even complain, neither does Armenia



    Lubawa SA's award winning tactical combat vest: the Lifeguard Special QR. Has been seen in all presentations. It seems as if Lubawa pushed hard to get Armenia to announce its purchase at the MORA meeting. 5 year contract looks promising for the armed forces



    Lifeguard Special QR

    LIFEGUARD SPEC QR overt bullet-proof vest is designed for uniformed armed forces. Due to its functionality, it is a lightweight vest with an integrated platform for carrying tactical equipment.

    The vest cover is trimmed with horizontal strips of a modular system (MOLLE/PALS), allowing for the installation of any number of pouches and functional pockets in any arrangement. The design of the vest allows for the adjustment of the level and the area of protection to the specific operating conditions.

    The vest is designed for overt wearing. The vest is designed for use all year long in any weather conditions, ensuring stability of protective and operational parameters. The vest (cover and ballistic inserts) is resistant to unfavourable weather conditions such as rain, snow, sunlight, high humidity, dustiness, etc., and particularly resistant to human sweat. The vest maintains its protective properties in temperatures from -40C to +50C.

    The entire set (system) of the LIFEGUARD SPEC QR bullet-proof vest consists of: - the basic vest, i.e. vest cover with a modular system and a basic ballistic package formed by soft ballistic inserts with the option: a supplementary ballistic package formed by additional soft ballistic inserts with their covers – 1 x ballistic collar, 2 x shield protector, 1 x abdominal protector, 1 x modular ballistic belt with braces.

    The vest can be supplemented by a set of modular pockets and additional items conforming to the user's requirements.

    The vest features the possibility of connecting the front and rear part by a system of shoulder and waist strips cooperating with the two-point system of quick release of the vest in case of an emergency (such as fire, falling into water, the need to provide medical assistance, etc.). The Quick Release (QR) System is designed in a way allowing for full conformance of the vest to the user's individual requirements. The rear part of the fastening is mounted on the corpus separately from the front part by a flexible belt.

    The cover design provides comfort also in a sitting position.

    The design of the aforesaid connections allows the user to put on, remove and adjust the vest within its girth and length. The vest is designed in a way allowing for the adjustment of the vest within its girth with one hand (especially useful for users moving by vehicles). The vest features the a so-called strip system for medical evacuation. The system allows for quick evacuation of the injured person (a vest user). By using the aforesaid system, the evacuated person is carried on the back of the evacuating person. The outer cover of the bullet-proof vest is made of a material of the highest durability parameters (characterised by high mechanical resistance to tearing and abrasion), providing camouflage in the near infra-red (IRR).

    Ballistic inserts provide maximum possible protected area while maintaining maximum user mobility and ergonomics, understood as the freedom of movement, applying various shooting positions with long short, arms, etc.
    Lets see: PASGT helmets purchased in large numbers, along with MICH 2000 and an unknown number of these vests. 50,000 PASGT helmets cost about 4.5 million dollars, chump change for MoD. (Thats if each helmet is like 70-90 dollars which they are in retail stores). I wonder how much these ballistic vests cost.

    Some more photos, idk if MoD has purchased these or not so take my weird conjecture with a grain of salt. EDIT: Just to remind you all, special forces/recon are probably gonna receive the new equipment. Armenian Army regulars do not need new vests.

            Do you have a reference regarding 50,000 helmets costing $4.5 M,
            My simple arithmetic tells me that's $90 each.

            You also say these can be bought for $70-$90 in (retail ) shops.
            Considering that shops would have 20-30% markup
            and volumes stocked would not match what an army buys ( in this case 50,000 units)

            It appears what Armenia is paying has quite a high markup ... for the benefit of somebody.
            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.

              Azerbaijani Defense Ministry hides 2 losses in Nakhijevan Army and combat injuries of 3 soldiers

              http://www.panorama.am/en/society/20...erbaijan-army/


              Azerbaijani non-official sources report two recent losses and Azerbaijani Armed Forces three servicemen wounded in combat conditions. The official agencies of Azerbaijan did not comment on those incidents, Armenian military-analytical outlet Razm.info writes citing alternative sources.

              According to the article, the sources report that 2 servicemen from the separate combined-arms army of the Nakhijevan Autonomous Republic, senior lieutenant Anar Kerimov and contract soldier Mehdi Zeynalov, had been caught in a storm and died on the spot.

              It is also noted that to this day only Zeynalov’s body has been possible to be found. According to the outlet, the same source says that three servicemen from one of the military units in Beylagan district, Azerbaijan, had been seriously wounded as a result of mortar firing on the frontline. The wounded soldiers were taken to the Central clinical military hospital in Baku. Other details are not disclosed.

              This is not the first case of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan hiding the losses. Consequently, the Armenian side is obliged to consult alternative sources more frequently in order to find out the real number of the losses in the Azerbaijani army. Note also that since early 2015 the Azerbaijani government agencies acknowledged the death of 13 servicemen: according to official information, 9 of them were combat deaths on the frontline.

                Its not a solid number, its just conjecture. You and I will never find out how much they cost in bulk for an military

                  In that case my estimate would be something like this.

                  You say these can be bought in the shops for typical $80.
                  Shop mark-up modest 25%, price to the shops $60.

                  Large volume discount at least 10%

                  I make it $50 – $55 a piece.

                  Total price $2.5M - 2.75M.
                  Worth every penny to save the lives of our lads.

                    NATO official: Effectiveness of Armenian MOD steps is visible
                    17:38, 03.04.2015
                    Region:World News, Armenia
                    Theme: Politics


                    YEREVAN. – The First Deputy Minister of Defense of Armenia, Davit Tonoyan, on Friday met with Ambassador Marrit Schuurman, the NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for Women, Peace and Security.

                    The interlocutors discussed the Armenia MOD activities toward the fulfillment of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on women and peace and security.

                    They also exchanged views on the avenues for ensuring equal opportunities for, and protecting the rights of, men and women in the Armenian armed forces, and making the respective cooperation with NATO grow deeper, the MOD press service informed.

                    Tonoyan noted that the Armenia MOD stands ready to present its respective track-record to the partner countries. He added that the MOD’s step-by-step policy in this regard is justified.

                    It was stressed that the chances of including female soldiers in the Armenian military units engaged in international peacekeeping missions will be considered, too.

                    Ambassador Schuurman, for her part, noted that the effectiveness of the Armenian MOD’s steps is visible, and its joint work with the international organizations likewise contributes to this fact.

                    Schuurman also met with the female soldiers serving at the MOD.

                    Following this talk, the delegation visited the MOD Military Institute Named After Vazgen Sargsyan, where it met with the Institute administration and the female cadets studying at Armenia’s military institutions.

                      The new structures of the military hospital have been put into operation
                      2015-04-07
                      After undergoing a difficult path of formation, enriching and perfecting professional skills, purchasing modern medical equipment and improving the conditions of the premises, the medical services of the armed forces currently demonstrate a high level of performance of their tasks.
                      Nowadays, the medical staff of the National Army carries out complex and unique surgeries and thoroughly pursues the improvement of professional skills. As a particular logistics unit, the military medical services are granted special attention from the Ministry of Defence.
                      Today, on the World Health Day, two structures of modern medical standards were put into operation within the ARM MoD Central Clinical Military Hospital, where flight testing for emergency situations, maxillofacial, dental, MBS therapy and other departments will be implemented.
                      During the event ARM Defence Minister Seyran Ohanyan congratulated the medical staff, emphasized on the role and importance of medical support, and stated that the Armenian Armed Forces continue to execute quality works in the field of military medical services based on the latest achievements.
                      At the end of the opening ceremony of the new medical structures, accompanied by high-ranking officers and representatives of the “Armenian Association of Military Doctors”, the ARM Minister of Defence toured the completely renovated areas of the hospital, equipped with new furniture, medical means and technologies. Seyran Ohanyan also gave a number of instructions and recommendations for the organization of future plans.
                      On the occasion of World Health Day, as well as Motherhood and Beauty Day, Defence Minister Seyran Ohanyan awarded the female medical staff with certificates and valuable gifts.
