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.

        True that. The one thing that really makes the Armenian military "look" outdated though is the communication equipment. it seems dated.

        Looking at it further, the number of older equipment worries me in the sense that a lot of these platforms are proven to be really dangerous for the operations. Take for example our BMP-1s and 2s. It would make sense to put our ZU-23s on these to use for air defense / drone defense instead of troop transport.

        Our old tank's should be used as APCs, and we really shouldn't have so many MBTs such as the T-72 if we know that we are going A) fight in the mountains and B) the T-72s can be knocked out by anti tank missiles easily.

          That is a bit wrong assesment.
          You have to compare to armies in your region.
          Being abvious that our army currently is comparable to or more stronger than something like Syrian or Iraqui armies is possible.
          Look into others. Turkey could not manage against ISIS or Kurdish in Syria.
          The size matters but not 100%.
          If you are going to compare us to NATO then you should take Russia on our side into account. That goes against Turkey too.
          Are we comparanle to hezbollah?
          I think so, we could top them. And in 2006 hezbollah kicked Israeli ass.
          One thing that Syria, Hezbollah and kurds lack is air defence, which we are saturated.
          It all comes to fighting spirit.
          In last aprill, I concider that our army withstood not just azeri, but turkish trained and in a way turkish encroached event.
          Today's large armies matter, but strategically getting stung and mired in standoff with small but spirited opponent does change picture for armies like turkish, Iranian or even Russian.
          So we have to look at what is our objectives and how are we doing at meeting them.
          Nobody still has not qualified some of our army's statements like modernising our scuds. That has been said and done about 10 years ago.
          If we have modernised them to today's controll and navigation systems, which I think does not take a lot, thrn those could be more potent then Iskanders with longer range and allmost a ton of warhead. So were looking at ability to withstand, do serious losses to enemy and then hit points that can send world stockmarkets spinning.
          If Syria had Iskanders and our kind of air defences then Israel would not dare to send arplains to bomb.
          Then look at our topography and see if large armies can use their equipment easily?
          We see all the time that simple RPG does the job time and again, let alone guided tank killers that we have.
          It all comes down to fighting spirit.

            I do think Armenia has the full strength to beat Azerbaijan. Even with Azeri's outnumbering Armenia 3/4-1, with oil money. Armenia has strengths of geography and organization. There are areas that are severely lacking, one of which is an effective Military Intelligence branch. The Jordanians have something really impressive, and for size and ability, they do pack a punch.

              "First female fighters in a decades-old conflict

              Last year, clashes in a decades-old conflict between Azerbaijani and ethnic Armenian forces in the Caucasus region motivated a number of young woman and girls to challenge traditional gender roles and pick up arms."

                The weapons of the Armenian Army are good enough and modern enough. There is nothing wrong with them and hardly any of it predates 1970.

                  One area that our army needs to work ASAP in closing the window for good is the enemy drones. Large or small.
                  We have to get several Pantsir S1s from Russia.
                  I read that azerbaijan is allready negotiating with Russia to buy them.
                  If russia supplies them then we should demand to get them too.
                  If both of us have it, situatiin will still favor us because if the skies are closed our ground forces perform much better than azeristan's.

                    I have the impression we might have some Anti Drone "something" and our people are quiet about it.
                    If not, the Pantsir S1s is the ideal system. Or for low budget one of the more advanced ZU-23 with advanced sensors.

                      ^^^ Poles have nice modern versions of the ZU-23 that can handshake with centralized or independent radars with the unit.
