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.

    Before sprinkling anything, how about starting a new thread "Fast track to learning Polish" then everybody will be at the same level.

        That is my biggest complaint with our military, a lot of these weapons are from the 70s and these 70s are badly outdated almost half a century old, yes I understand our military is efficient in terms of budgeting but we should really learn to classify our military as *modern* our most modern military is from the 90s and 2000's but most of the military is in bad shape and in need of modernization, our land forces are a complete joke with the best tank a fu**ing T-72B
        Most of the equipment wielded by the most modern armies are from the 1970s and 1980s. Such as the US military and M1 platform. I was never talking about budgeting. The equipment is more than modern enough.

        The T72B and its derivatives are THE best T72 variants in the world. There is nothing wrong with the T72 tank itself either. There is no need to start buying other kinds of tanks. Upgrading it is all that is needed. Even without upgrades, the B1 is pretty damn good compared to other Warsaw Pact weapons.

        and our artillery should literally belong to a museum some were used in ww2 for god sake
        What system are you even talking about? Armenia's artillery forces are one of the most advanced portion of the military.


        > and most of our infantry (especially in Artsakh) is poorly equipped, not having knee caps, goggles, proper vests and sufficient web gears

        Armenia makes its own kevlar helmets and kevlar vests. It also buys kevlar helmets from Russia. Every soldier gets kevlar. You don't knee pads or goggles to fight. To look stupid? Yes. To be uncomfortable? Yes. To fight effectively? No.

        There is no difference between the equipment of the "NKR Army" and the AAF. The NKR Army IS the Armenian Armed Forces. Its called that for political reasons, but all it is is a term for Armenian divisions in Artsakh. Similar to an Army Group classification



        But thankfully most of our weapons old but some of the best guns out there even the 60 year old AK-47 is pure gold, seriously where did the Russian military go they used to have some of the most cheap and easy and reliable weaponry in history and even today they are fine examples of military warfare compared some literally while today Russia is starting to go for the bloated and expensive western weaponry compared to its past.

        Honestly, your whole post seems to be a rant about nonsense. You don't know what you are talking about my friend. Just calm down, Armenia has enough weapons. Its one of the most heavily armed nations in the world. Its weapons are Cold War era/Post-Cold war era. All their troops are equipped sufficiently.

          It might be ceramic covered with fiberglass or kevlar. Not sure of the details.

            We might not have the most advanced or the latest toys but we sure know how to pick the most effective and durable armaments.
            A good example would be the potential purchase of Yak-130 a gorgeous small aircraft that could be used for training and light support.
            When compared with the old Su-25, still the Su-25 will win for its crew protection and being indestructible. It could use some upgrades, but would they ever fly for combat? I doubt it.

                    You know I can go all out and fight how naive you are lori for thinking the T-72B is the best (for its time) or how it should be a majority of our tank force rather than a minority or how useful the Goggles and knee/shoulder pads are and why our Field artillery is LITERALLY a museum, I'm too lazy.

                    the Yak 130 is a nice little air vehicle and a good 4 of them will be enough, our Su 25's are also sufficient (13 Aircraft) Also the Yak 130 costs 15 million dollars per jet which is expensive BUT if our guys have the skills and brain power, can we turn our Aero L-39 Albatros into fighter jets? sure they are crap but they're unit cost is 1 million dollars or lesser which is insane, sure they're crap I'm sure but for that price and low cost maintenance ,d there its not bad for a budget fighter jet anlow price we can have an army of large low cost fighter jets.
