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.

    You guys noticed how active Aslan dude has been after the Manat went down the tubes from 1.05 to 1.60xx? The life of an ordinary Azeri must be stressful these days.

      Are you saying that there has been a comparable spending by Armenia? There has been transfer of second-hand S-300 systems from Russian army stocks, delivery of a battalion (31 units) of T-72 and some BTR-70/80. Probably also some howitzer cannons such as D-30 or D-20.

      Azerbaijan's purchase of Russian arms includes a broad list of various types of weaponry.

      S-300PMU2, the latest of S-300P family. These are not even slightly comparable to S-300s in Armenian inventory.
      Mi-35M/Mi-17. Mi-35M are vastly improved over older hinds, with modern sighting systems, use of more improved AT missiles, shorter wing & fixed landing gear, more powerfull engine and rotors of Mi-28, which greately enchantes its flight performance.
      T-90S (Azerbaijani version are improved over Russian T-90A in certain aspects, a newer model of Shtora, automatic target tracking capability, AC), Azerbaijan also purchased armored bridge layers and engineering vehicles based on T-90S.
      BMP-3 (with Vesna-K sighting system with thermal imager and automatic target tracking)
      BTR-82A
      TOS-1A
      Smerch
      Msta-S self-propelled howitzer, 2S31 Vena self-propelled gun/mortar system

      Azerbaijan has also bought hundreds of 120mm 2S12A Sani mortars, Igla-S MANPADs & Kornet AT missiles.

      There were significant contracts with other countries as well, in particular Israel, including for the needs of ground forces (artillery systems including guided rocket artillery, Spike AT missiles etc).

        A wise person in the Greek army told me: "The Azeris are like Arabs. They buy expensive weapons, but don't know how to use them."

          Armenian troops in panic, looking for place to hide – Azerbaijani defense minister


          PrevNext

          AA+A-
          Baku – APA. Azerbaijani Defense Minister, Colonel General Zakir Hasanov attended Dec.29 the graduation ceremony for the students who have passed the specialized officer training at the Training and Education Center of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces.
          Addressing the military personnel, Hasanov spoke about the work done under the instruction of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief to further increase the combat capability of the army. He highlighted the important activities carried out in the system of military education, as well as the tasks set before the military personnel for combat, technical and moral-psychological preparation.

          Hasanov said there is an important task before Azerbaijani armed forces – to liberate Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied regions of Azerbaijan.

          The enemy must understand that the time has come to get out of Azerbaijan’s native lands that it is temporarily controlling, said the minister.

          “With the support of the state and people, the Azerbaijani army has been provided with the most sophisticated weapons and equipment. Patriotism, discipline, knowledge, skills and professionalism of the personnel and their commitment to the moral values are basic conditions for the successful implementation of their military tasks in the short term,” he added.

          The defense minister unambiguously stressed that Azerbaijani armed forces bear responsibility for the full withdrawal of Armenian occupiers from the occupied territories. “Azerbaijani troops enjoy superiority on the frontline. This year, the Armenian army suffered heavy losses as result of the effective retaliation from the Azerbaijani side,” he said.

          The minister noted that Armenian armed forces are in panic, running and looking for a place to hide. “The only combat task that lays ahead our well-experienced soldiers is to pursue the enemy forces everywhere, detect and destroy their points. The real military strength of Azerbaijan allows us to do it.”

          The defense minister mentioned that each Azerbaijani army officer should be set an example for his military staff. “You must train your soldiers in the spirit of loyalty towards our state and hate for the enemy and encourage for exemplary service. Our soldiers should be able to expertly handle modern weapons and equipment and be always ready to defeat the enemy,” completed Hasanov.

              Regarding the purchases from russia,azerbaijan got the kornet, armenia got the metis-m and the milan atgms,armenia also got the igla-s (it was previously posted in this thread).regarding the tanks,azerbaijan's new shiny tanks will be sitting ducks in any battle against armenia, and we should not forget that armenian officials confirmed that armenia was modernising its tanks to the pt-72u twardy configuration with poland, regarding artillery and missiles,president sarkissian stated that armenia possesses missiles that have a range of MORE than 300kms and many articles surfaced indicating that armenia has purchased the iskander-m ballistic missile system,regarding the smerch systems,the armenian MoD refused to make any statements regarding the subject but said armenian forces are acquiring long range and precise missiles etc...

                    Considering the past military budgets of Azerbaijan doesnt show the same superiority on the ground capabilities as it do on paper it should mean that 1 dollar spent by Azerbaijan did not buy as much as 1 dollar spent by Armenia.
                    Dollar spent by tatar vs dollar spent by Hayr.
                    After all is said and done , we are Armenians.
                    A dollar spent wisely is easily worth $10 spent foolishly.
                    The tatar can spend all the money they want , but they are still turcees. All the money in the world isn't going to change that.
                    Excellent point by Etchmiadzin.
