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.

    Don't pin your hopes too much on SCUD missiles guys, they are mostly obsolete. They're not very accurate either. It's mostly a psychological weapon at this point. Even camel riding Saudis are intercepting/downing SCUDs fired by Yemenis.
    Azerbaboon: 9.000 Google hits and counting!

      they have advanced patriot missiles. you don't need a PhD to intercept a SCUD with patriots.

        Just talked to him. He said PMU 2 can intercept older missiles like 9K52 Luna and 2K1 Mars ONLY.

          But we also saw 2-3 times Yemeni scuds pass tru and do enormous damage to soudis.
          We also know that our tech has upgraded scud's controls to make them accurate.
          Azeris will have to think twice. Can they stop a scud salvo flying towards oil platforms?
          So far they can't even shoot straight.
          Last thing, who can be sure that we have not upgraded our scud's to accuracy even better than they know?

            That was fast. As much as I would like to believe your friend, I don't.

            Edit: Isn't it 2 in the morning in Russia. How the heck did you get a hold of him on a work day?

            While the Favorit superficially appears like the SA-10B, it has a wide range of technologicalx improvements internally, and a range of optimisations to improve performance in the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) role. Almaz, the system integrators, and Fakel, the missile designers, claim to have repeatedly caused Scud target vehicle warheads to detonate during test intercepts at the Kapustin Yar range in 1995.

              Are you suggesting the patriot pac-2 is light-years ahead of the S300PMU2? The patriot pac-2 system is on par with the pmu-2.

                Exactly. They might be able to shoot a couple scuds down, but they won't be able to hit every one of them. Another thing to remember is we probably won't strike baku in response to stepanakert being attacked. That will be something held in reserve incase they hit Yerevan.

                    This guy has a hobby of building military models and staying up late at night. I talking to him on FB and he replied. It's 2:40AM in Yerevan also and I'm awake.
