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.

    Normally the aircraft is either mothballed for later use or for sell. The military could have taken over the aircraft since the bird looks like operational. Paint job is expensive and requires a special hanger......we don't seem to have enough hangers for our military birds let alone a painting facility.

    I suppose it can become military VIP bird or.....how about Airforce one.

    btw, its missing the #2 engine intake cover.......hard to get to unless you have some type lift that won't put a hole in the plane. .
    I always thought why don't we have hangars for our Su-25s and Mi-24s.
    You know the sun is crazy here in summer and there's snow in winter so they're not protected this way.
    It wouldn't cost much because we produce cement locally.
    Also, Shirak and Erebuni air bases are very close to the Turkish border..not sure it's wise to leave the jets outside.
    So??

        RUSSIAN LOAN: INSTEAD OF 8 BILLION RUBLES ARMENIA WILL RECEIVE 15

        Russian Armenian News Agency
        Feb 22 2016

        raiadmin 22.02.2016 News коммен~Bи~@ова~B~L 143 Views

        The official portal of legal information of Russia has posted the
        text of the Treaty between Russia and Armenia on granting state export
        credit in the amount of $200 million for the purchase of arms.

        According to the 2nd paragraph of the 1st article of the Treaty,
        Armenia is obliged to pay for the purchased weapons in Russian rubles.

        Thus, given the depreciation of the ruble against the dollar and
        Armenian dram, the country gets a chance to acquire a lot more Russian
        weapons than were planned at the time of negotiating the loan.

        Different mathematical calculations indicate the benefit of Armenia
        from the loan, - says Aza Mihranyan, senior researcher at the Institute
        of Europe, the Russian Academy of Sciences.

        "As the ruble drops against both the AMD and U.S. dollar, the increase
        in the volume of procurement in value equivalent becomes inevitable.

        If we consider that the ruble fluctuations do not affect the value
        of Russian arms, and their price remains fixed, then here as well
        Armenia benefits," told RUSARMINFO Aza Mihranyan.

        According to the expert, Russia also benefits from this, because the
        transition to ruble payments provides a stable income for the Russian
        defense enterprises in the conditions of economic crisis.

        "The price policy of the Russian defense industry is not open to
        public, but one can assume that in ruble payments the prices on arms
        remain more stable than in dollar terms. Just for the sake of this
        stability, which is very important during the economic crisis, the
        Treaty stipulates the paragraph on calculations in Russian rubles,"
        stressed Aza Mihranyan.

        If a year ago, when the exchange rate was approximately 40 rubles
        per one dollar, $200 million amounted to 8 billion rubles, nowadays,
        when the ruble is 75 rubles per dollar, $200 million amounts to 15
        billion rubles.

        Note: Armenia is purchasing from Russia such offensive weapons, as MLRS
        "Smerch", anti-aircraft missile complexes "Igla-S", flamethrower system
        TOS-1A "Buratino", the RPG-26, Dragunov sniper rifle, and armored cars
        "Tiger".

        Hayastan or Bust.

              Armenian armed forces are filled with long-range precision weapons



              YEREVAN, MARCH 1, ARMENPRESS. Armenia's political and military leadership took serious work towards the acquisition of modern weapons and military equipment. “We are conducting the mentioned above within the relevant projects. I understand that this is one of the most interesting topics for our society, as questions are heard very often. I must say that the aforesaid is conducted under the leadership of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief,” Armenian Defense Minister mentioned, “Armenpress” reports.


              It smells like Iskander-M

                So??
                Cement wont help when the bombs come. But i agree its better to protect them from snow/rain. Also their satelites wont see if they are inside or moved somewhere else.

                    After this statement i believe we should follow his rule , he has a point , one of the biggest advantages of armenia is the benefit of doubt and silence of what we really have and can do , we would do more damage to an upreared enemy to one that really knows what we can do and have the means to deflect . Let the azeri public think we cant do xxxx , that way we would kill more of them and have less deaths on our side !!!
