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.

    Karabakh reports heavy shelling from Azeri side all along the line of contact

    21:48, 13 May 2016
    Siranush Ghazanchyan

    The Azerbaijani side started heavy shelling of the NKR Defense Army
    positions all along the line of contact from 17:00 today, the NKR
    Defense Ministry reports.

    More intensive firing was reported in the northeastern (Martakert) and
    northern (Talish) directions of the line of contact. The rival fired
    116 shells from 82 mm mortars.

    “The Azerbaijani side rushed to lay the blame for destabilizing the
    situation at the line of contact on the Karabakh side, but this does
    not correspond to reality,” the Ministry said.

    The front divisions of the NKR Defense mostly remain committed to the
    agreement on ceasefire and resort to response actions only in case of
    extreme necessity targeting the firing ranges of the rival.

      I expect it will be a violent next few days- since "peace talks" are supposedly going to occur soon. Aliyev likes to ratchet things up before such events as well all know.

          The drone is Made in Russia, I confirmed it myself before military analysts and websites. It took me some half an hour to find what it is. Some in the EU call it "Drone-x" as it was used and shot down in Ukraine, one was shot down in Turkey near the Syrian border, and another one in Syria. Some refer to it as an updated version of Russian Orlan-10.
          They can be distinguished by the shape of the tail, the 5 dots near the tail, and the openings like gills.

            Good catch that's definitely an Orlan-10, albeit another version than the typical one everyone is used to. If it is an Azeri drone, they either got it from Russia in that package deal or Turkey could be making them now since they already captured an Orlan-10 via Syria. They could have sent it to Azerbaijan across the Turkey-Nakhichevan border.

            As a side note, what's curious is that there were Russian aviation drills happening yesterday and Russia does operate Orlan-10s in Armenia so there's even a possibility we shot down a Russian drone by accident. By now we should know the Orlan-10 inside and out since they're operated on Armenian soil and it will help shoot them down if indeed Azerbaijan possesses them.

                A few weeks ago, we reported capturing a brand new Azeri Ural truck. Don't know if video was ever posted but here it is:

                  I can imagine that it probably will be a very hectic weekend with a lot of intensive fighting, building up to the meeting between Serj and the Sultan.

                    If I'm understanding this correctly, it's interesting that we were holding the eastward, downward slope of a hill overlooking their village for that long. Seems like a very vulnerable position (proven out by the fact that we lost it in a grunt rush)

                      We know as a FACT that the Azeris will ramp up the artillery and sniping chaos heading into this meeting. So either we keep every soldier head down to avoid sniping, or we go on the offensive. They will blame it on us whether we are offense or not, so let's just cut them off this time around.
