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.

  • Re: Nagorno-Karabagh: Military Balance Between Armenia & Azerbaijan

    Just ignore the title because this is one of them Soros-funded so-called NGOs. There's one thing to focus on here, what the Ministry of Finance is saying. It's so funny how media of this type focus on trivial issues like the Iskander is an AK-47 that every country has.

    The “Iskanders” cost the Armenian budget 70-100 million USD: Union of Informed Citizens

    During the military parade dedicated to the 25th anniversary of independence of Armenia, the “Iskander” tactical missile systems were displayed among other military equipment. “Union of Informed Citizens” NGO has tried to gather information about those systems and their purchase. Price As it is known, on June 26 of 2015, a contract on “Providing a State Export Loan to the RA Government” was signed between Armenia and Russia. According to the contract, Armenia was supposed to purchase 200 million USD-worth weapons and military equipment from Russia and pay for the purchased items during 10 years. However, according to the response letter received recently from the RA Ministry of Finance, those 200 million USD had not been used yet by the date of September 13 of 2016. And according to Article 2 of the aforementioned contract, the use of the loan shall start from the day of the delivery of the weapons. It means that Russia had not provided any weapons or other military equipment to Armenia within the framework of the loan as of September 13 (when the “Iskanders” were already surely in Armenia). This allows us to claim with confidence that the “Iskander” systems (among other weapons) were not purchased with the loan but by direct payment. In fact, it was confirmed by Deputy Defense Minister Davit Tonoyan in his interview to Radio Liberty, who said that “it was obtained at the expense of our budget spending”. This “Iskanders” deal is not yet reflected either in the UN Register of Conventional Arms or the Stockholm International Peace Institute reports. Hence, it is difficult to assess the amount that the Armenian taxpayers have paid for those systems. However, according to the evaluations by different experts, one brigade of these systems costs 200-300 million USD. The brigade is composed of 12 launching systems. During the 25th anniversary parade in Yerevan, 4 launching systems were shown. Hence, we can assume that the “Iskanders” cost the Armenian budget 70-100 million USD. Range Some Russian, Azerbaijani and Turkish sources have come up with publications in which 500 kilometers were mentioned as the radius of destruction of the Armenian “Iskanders”. However, during the military parade in Yerevan, 300km was announced as the radius of destruction of the systems. The point is that there are different types of 9K720 “Iskander” systems (SS26 Stone by NATO’s classification): “Iskander-M”, “Iskander-K” and “Iskander-E”. During the Yerevan military parade, the launching systems were concealed and it was not possible to form a clear understanding of the type the Armenian “Iskanders” belong to. According to the International Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missile Proliferation (also known as the Hague Code of Conduct), its member countries (including Russia) are obliged not to sell missiles exceeding the range of 300 kilometers to other countries. In order to meet the requirements of that Code, Russia created the so-called export-oriented “Iskander E”. According to official data, the latter have a 280km range. Most probably, particularly this type has been supplied to Armenia (in this case, the announced range of 300 km is closer to reality). In this regard, we should note that the “Iskanders” should be transported to Nagorno Karabagh in order to be able to strike objects around Baku because Baku is 305km far from the closest point in Armenia. However, the transportation of those systems to Nagorno Karabagh is dangerous both politically and diplomatically.

              I wonder what are these Parabolic dish used in that azeri Video. If they are for communications or audio receivers? Maybe heaters for the fiberglass production?

                      Ambassador of Russia: All military hardware demonstrated at Yerevan parade belongs to Armenian Armed Forcesx

                      ArmInfo.xAll the military hardware demonstrated at the September 21 military parade dedicated to the 25th anniversary of Armenia's independence belongs to the Armenian Armed Forces, Russia's Ambassador to Armenia Ivan Volynkin has told ArmInfo, when commenting on the media reports that part of the weapons demonstrated at the parade does not belong to the Armenian side and the other part, particularly, the Iskander systems are props.x

                      "It is rumored that the weapons shown at the parade do not belong to Armenia and that they belong to Russia. This is absolutely untrue. The Defense Ministry of Armenia has given an official answer to that question. The weapons totally belong to the Armenian Armed Forces," the diplomat says.x

                      He notes that Russia and Armenia have allied relations and it is wrong to say that the weapons at the parade were just props. "There are certain contract obligations within the CSTO, bilateral relations on military and military-technical cooperation," the ambassador said.x
                      xx
                      At the same time, the Russian diplomat does not share some experts' opinion that the specified military hardware is meant to break the balance of forces in the region.

                      "The Russian military hardware supplied to Armenia is mostly defensive and I would not say it is going to break the balance of forces in the region or to provide advantages to anyone," Volynkin says.

                      To note, the military parade dedicated to the 25th Anniversary of Armenia's Independence and the advanced weapons showcased during it have raised hysteria in Azerbaijan. According to Azerbaijani media, Azerbaijani President and Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ilham Aliyev, charged the Defense Ministry leadership to meet on September 21.x "Analyzing the military-political situation in the region, the ministry officials paid special attention to strengthening all types of intelligence to identify new targets on the territory controlled by the enemy, assessing their significance and determining the sequence of their destruction, and strengthening mutual coordination between the Land Forces, Air Force, Rocket and artillery troops, Special Forces, and other types of troops," the Defense Ministry reported.x "Taking into account the potential danger of any military threat to Azerbaijan, Defense Minister, Colonel- General Zakir Hasanov instructed the country's Armed Forces to strengthen control over all the military and strategic facilities in the enemy- controlled territories and be prepared to immediately destroy these targets if necessary. Minister Hasanov emphasized that the missile-artillery systems at the disposal of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces allow the army to execute these tasks with high accuracy," the Azerbaijani mass media reported.

                      In addition, the Azeri media outlets disseminate information that the Iskander systems at the Yerevan parade were props.x

                      The independence military parade in Yerevan featured military hardware that included Iskander short-range ballistic missile systems, Buk and other modernized surface-to-air missile systems, Smerch heavy multiple rocket launchers, as well as drones and MiG-29 and Su-25 planes, Soviet-era Scud-B and Tochka-U systems, Infauna electronic warfare vehicles, S-300 missile systems, WM-80, MRLS, columns of tanks mounted on heavy military trucks, armored vehicles and others.
