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.

    That is good for snipers and special forces.

    On an AK you loose your zero on the scope or red dot everytime you take it off the rails in order to get the dust cover off to clean your AK. So now you have to rezero it which is a pain.
    The Iron sights and rear sight range and aiming the AK sights properly.....you are good up 300 yrds and even more sometimes. So its better to use the AK the way Mr. Kalish intended to.

        Ադրբեջանի բանակում պայմանագրային զինծառայողը գնդակահարել է սպային
        Հուլիս 28, 2015

        Սոցիալական ցանցերից Ռազմինֆոյին հայտնի է դարձել Ադրբեջանի զինված ուժերում գրանցված հերթական սպանության մասին։ Տեղեկությունը, սակայն, տեղ չի գտել Ադրբեջանի պաշտոնական լրահոսում։

        Աղբյուրի համաձայն, զինված ուժերի՝ Աղստաֆայում տեղակայված զորամասերից մեկում, պայմանագրային զինծառայող Հաջիև Էլդարը գնդակահարելով սպանել է իր ծառայակից՝ լեյտենանտ Ռզաև Ջեյհունին։

        Հավելենք, որ 2015-ի հուլիսին սա ադրբեջանական բանակում տեղ գտած մահվան ելքով 4-րդ միջադեպն է, որի մասին հայտնի է դարձել։

                In US, Armenia MOD official discusses Armenian peacekeepers’ participation in UN missions
                12:49, 28.07.2015
                Region:World News, Armenia
                Theme: Politics


                A delegation from the Armenian Ministry of Defense, led by First Deputy Minister of Defense Davit Tonoyan, is in the US on a working visit.

                On Monday, Tonoyan and Ambassador Zohrab Mnatsakanyan—Permanent Representative of Armenia to the United Nations (UN)—held talks at the UN Headquarters with UN Assistant Secretary-General for the Rule of Law and Security Institutions, Dmitry Titov, and Chief of Staff of the Military Office of UN Secretary-General, Brigadier General Ahmed Mohamed.

                The interlocutors discussed the Armenian units’ and officers’ participation in the UN peacekeeping missions. Tonoyan noted that Armenia will continue to be actively engaged in international security operations, and to increase its assistance in the UN peacekeeping missions.

                The UN officials, for their part, hailed the Armenian peacekeepers’ service as part of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) multinational mission, and noted that partners like Armenia are indispensable for the UN peacekeeping operations.

                The parties also conferred on several other matters of mutual interest.

                    Davit Tonoyan: Armenia and Georgia trust each other
                    2015-07-27


                    First Deputy Minister of Defense Davit Tonoyan’s exclusive interview to Mediamax
                    - Mr. Tonoyan, recently you paid a visit to Georgia where you had a meeting with the newly-appointed Defense Minister Tinatin Khidasheli. Around a month ago Armenian Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan said “until recently, the main threat to the South Caucasus security has been the unsettled conflicts, while now the security in the region is more realistically threatened by the countries’ conflicting approaches to the establishment of the security system in the region.” Georgia pictures its future in NATO, while Russia with which Armenia has membership in CSTO does not even want to hear about NATO presence in the Caucasus. Given these conditions, how is it possible to build cooperation based on mutual trust in the defense sector?
                    - The three countries in the South Caucasus have varying ideas and perceptions of regional security. The problem is that recently external factors, the escalation of relations of countries playing a decisive role in ensuring international security, considerably affect the security in our region.
                    I think it’s natural as it’s impossible to draw a separation between regional and international/global security levels. Moreover, certain controversies have emerged in the standpoints of European countries, which are located in the same regional security system.
                    As to the security environment of the South Caucasus, I strongly believe that it is first off the task of our three countries. The establishment of sustainable security environment in the region is not fully contingent on the security systems our countries adhere to.
                    Armenian-Georgian relations are the best example of it – although our countries aim to have membership in different security systems, we are almost unanimous about regional security matters.
                    Stable Armenia and stable Georgia are equally important for our countries. The numerous meetings we had over the past years focused on the detailed discussion of all security-related issues, and we have arrived at absolute mutual trust, transparency and consideration and respect for one another’s views. Thus, at least in this bilateral format we manage to neutralize the external adverse incitements. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about Azerbaijan.
                    - The official press release that followed your meeting with the Georgian Defense Minister noted that military education will be one of the principal areas of cooperation. Could you please specify it a little? What will we learn from Georgia and what will we teach them?
                    - Our cooperation in military education has become dynamic in the recent years. It can be regarded as one of the principal areas of our cooperation. The reforms in this sector have resulted in the establishment of high-quality educational centers offering different levels of education. Also, advanced programs are worked out. And it would be unnatural if the two neighboring countries did not use one another’s capacities for staff training and education.
                    For example, the non-commissioned officers of the Armenian Armed Forces train at Sachkhere Mountain Training School, and the officers of the Georgian Armed Forces and public servants train at the American University of Armenia (AUA) in Yerevan.
                    - Armenia and Georgia participate in peacekeeping operations. Considering this, can peacekeeping become one of the targets of bilateral cooperation?
                    - Definitely. Peacekeeping is on the agenda of Armenian-Georgian military cooperation. Our subdivisions included in international peacekeeping operations have almost the same level of readiness and pass a relevant assessment process pursuant to NATO Operational Capabilities Concept (OCC). This shows there is no any urgent need for joint military readiness measures.
                    As to joint participation in international peacekeeping operations, the subdivisions of the two countries are deployed within the multinational forces. I believe if one of the two countries has the capability of stationing self-sufficient subdivisions abroad in the coming years and makes a political decision, we will then hold meetings for the representatives of the Armed Forces of the other country to engage in the deployed subdivision.
                    -If my memory serves me well, full Armenian-Georgian bilateral military exercises have never been conducted. What is the reason for it? Does it mean there is no need for such military exercises or do Georgia’s relations with Azerbaijan and Turkey as well as Armenia’s strategic cooperation with Russia have their share in this regard?
                    - I can assure you that we are not constrained by external factors in holding joint military exercises or trainings. In any case, Armenia, unlike our two other neighbors (I don’t mean Georgia) never ever attempts to politicize issues related to the combat readiness of the Armed Forces.
                    I believe Armenian-Georgian joint military exercises are a matter of time and they will be conducted as the occasion requires.
                    - Asked about the Russian military base in Armenia in a recent interview to “Russia in Global Affairs” magazine, Tinatin Khidasheli said: “Any Russian base at our borders harbors danger.” Was this question discussed at your meeting? If yes, what did you answer?
                    - Neither Armenia, nor Georgia links the discussion of issues of bilateral cooperation and its development to their relations with third countries. I have already said there is climate of mutual trust between our two countries. We have both asserted that we respect each other’s political stances and will never take any defense measures that will be against the interests of the other country. It is this logic that produces the climate of mutual trust, which enables us not to constrain our relations by such issues. On the contrary, considering Georgia’s ties with Azerbaijan and Turkey, and Armenia’s ties with Russia we are trying to “erect a bridge” to alleviate existing disputes.
                    - 10-15 years ago Armenian leaders used to frequently speak about Georgian-Turkish relations expressing Armenia’s concerns about the close military cooperation between the two countries considering the unsettled Armenian-Turkish relations. However, such statements are no longer made. Is it that the momentum of Georgian-Turkish cooperation has decreased or is it that the Georgian party has offered certain guarantees to Armenia?
                    - I think I answered this question a few minutes ago.

                      I say this from experience.

                      However, you can install a quality red dot on the base of front sight and it is a knocker. On mine, I get the same accuracy and quick taget acuisition as on AR. It will be a good idea if somebody manufactures a rail that can be installed instead of front sight that also includes adjustable new sight.
                      For scope, forget it. They put some on high accuracy AR based platforms, like HK. But this caliber range (223, 5.45) is not meant to be accurate for scope behind 200 meters.
                      Who needs a scope closer than 300 meters? Only small game hunters. Not combat.
                      The practic application of sniper is behind 300 meters. Anything close is open sight or better yet a red dot that has 3-4 graduating dots for 100-200-300-400.
                      I got a red dot on SKS too (this has very similar AK stile front sight) that had made it as accurate as AR.
                      If someone devises and mount a rail on front sight and forend that is sturdy enough to take a night vision, specially withstand auto fire, then you got a big winner for trench or mountain warfare like in our case.
                      Russians don't do it because they don't need it. But we do.
                      At night in frontline if you see better on your sight in those rocks, then you got advantage in suppressive fire.
