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.

In fact the ideas put forth by Hakob and other members is the exact opposite of endangering our troops, i.e.; to help their security and to enhance their effectiveness. Also the enormous and ludicrous cost of west's equipment can be overcome by creative thinking as Azad and Hacob have pointed out.
        (2) sorry but I don't gaf about embarrassment, I'm looking for accomplishment in real time. Throw toys at them by the dozens as long as you get the target acquisition info or situational awareness needed in the timeframe needed.
        -- sorry (2) reply is really reply to (3) -- anyway, reply to 2 is ... That's your opinion.
        (4) "We" aren't target practice, cheap toys are and can easily be replaced with no tears shed. The real question is can we be effective. Hakob/Azad are suggesting yes we can and we can without wasting money n western/yahoody glitz.
        We all have our opinions, and I personally like the ideas the other members have put forth. We may not have a lot of $$$, but we have brains. I think it's possible to win the battle with a good idea when a million $$$ can't pull it off.
        I would add to that one of the best early warning signals that they are up to something is when they will start not to tolerate any of your "cheap" but effective drones in the sky.

        They will use costly resources to bring them down and if we have enough of them cheaply made locally seem to be a winner.
        Send them even dummys to keep them busy.

        Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
        Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
        Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests

                Russia tests ‘unrivaled’ new radio-electronic weapon – producer

                https://www.rt.com/news/362672-radio...weapon-russia/

                Russia has developed and successfully tested radio-electronic weapons systems unmatched anywhere in the world, RIA Novosti reports, citing the manufacturer.

                "Real prototypes of such weapons have already been created and they have proven their efficiency,” a representative of Russia’s United Instrument Manufacturing Company (OPK), which is in charge of the production, told RIA Novosti.

                The new technology falls under the somewhat loose term "weapons based on new physical principles." The grouping includes armaments that employ physical processes and phenomena not generally used in modern weapons. Laser and sonic weapons are among other examples of such technology.

                According to the OPK representative, the brand-new Russian system is as yet unrivaled.

                “This is a completely new type of weapon, which has no analogues in our country, and I daresay, in the world."

                The announcement came during the ‘Arms High-tech’ military exhibition currently taking place in Armenia.
                The state-of-the-art system is capable of disabling various types of targets without using the traditional rounds or shells.
                Instead, the weapon uses ‘directed energy.’

                "It conducts indirect physical impact on the on-board equipment of aircraft or drones and neutralizes precision-guided weapons," RIA quotes the OPK representative as saying.

                The weapon was for the first time presented to Russian military officials in September this year during a closed performance at the annual military expo ‘Army 2016’ outside Moscow......

                  When you invest your money in good material you will get a good outcome. You can fail in both but chances are the cheaper stuff break a lot easier. These drones can be bought for a few hundred dollars from eBay. I can maybe spend a few hundred dollars more and put a better camera on them. We can't keep on saying we might not have dollars but brains. I'm not sure if you been to Armenia. Come and see how people live and you tell me if they got brains or if the people governing them have brains. See because we live in the Diaspora and the Armenian communities are intelligent , you automatically think the same goes for Armenia the nation. Wrong. Get your minds out of the sand and build new tech. These drones are not what military use. It's what Farmers use , or camera men.

                      We need to focus on gaining an advantage. Call me crazy , why can't we put launchers on our drones or weaponize them to lock targets and go in for the kill. We got brains right. Sometimes we need to think outside the box. Do something not many do. For e.g trenches are getting old. Tunnels are the way to go. Build a wall to stop the snipering. Germany after WW1 was a poor broken nation. No one expected its Military to bounce back the way it did. While Europe was sleeping Hitler created a war machine underground. Hate him or live him , that is a nationalist right there even though he was Austrian.We got the freedom to but we don't. If those plastic gadgets are our hi tech weapon systems then some people need to be fired. If you proud to have these as surveillance because we got brains , then you are mistaken sir , because we got no brains.
