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.


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.

    It's enough. Karabakh isn't that big and 50 launchers is really good coupled with artillery and other equipment.

    Not even talking about the mountainous area which makes the tanks even more vulnerable to less complex systems
    Of the talk is about 50 sistems, in reality they could be 75-100 because of secretive nature of real number of armaments.

        Might be enough!
        Was hoping they would use them for anything that would move on tracks or wheels. I understand we have other versions cheaper for those purpose.
        In general, they are a cheap investment for a perfect defense. An almost impossible advancement defense.

              Հայաստանը թույլ չի տվել Հավաքական անվտանգության պայմանագրի կազմակերպության (ՀԱՊԿ) անդամ Բելառուսին «Պոլոնեզ» համազարկային կրակի ռեակտիվ համակարգեր վաճառել Ադրբեջանին: Ինչպես հաղորդում է «Արմենպրես»-ը, այս մասին հայտնում է «Комсомольская правда Беларусь»-ը:

              «Մենք ցանկանում էինք Ադրբեջանին վաճառել «Պոլոնեզ»-ներ: Սակայն Հայաստանը՝ ՀԱՊԿ-ում մեր գործընկերը, դեմ էր դրան: Գործարքը չկայացավ»,- հայտնել է բելառուս ռազմական վերլուծաբան Ալեքսանդր Ալեսինը:

              Նա հավելել է նաև, որ ամենայն հավանականությամբ Բելառուսը շուտով սկսելու է ոչ մահաբեր զենքի վաճառքը Հայաստանին:
              Unfortunately Armenia failed to stop Belarus supplying these missiles to Azerbaijan.

              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

                  • Armenia Reportedly Blocks Belarus-Azerbaijan Arms Deal

                    While it appears to be a victory for Yerevan, Azerbaijan remains one of Belarus's largest weapons customers.

                    Armenia has managed to block a significant arms sale from Belarus to Azerbaijan, Belarusian and Armenian sources have reported.

                    Azerbaijan had long been looking at Belarusian-made Polonez missiles as a means of countering Armenia's acquisition in 2016 of Russian Iskander missiles. When Azerbaijan Defense Minister Zakir Hasanov visited Minsk in October, the defense ministry released photos of him in front of a Polonez. Azerbaijani media reported the deal as all but done. “Azerbaijan Answers Armenia with Lukashenko's Rockets,” a headline in read.

                    But now a Belarusian military analyst, Aleksander Alesin, has said that Armenia succeeded in blocking that deal. “We wanted to sell Polonezes to Azerbaijan,” he told Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda. “But Armenia, our partner in the CSTO, was against it,” he said, referring to the Collective Security Treaty Organization, the Russia-led military alliance. “The deal didn't work out, and probably the first [export] customer for the Polonez will be Kazakhstan,” Alesin said.

                    Sputnik Armenia reported that a source in Armenia's Ministry of Defense confirmed that account. “Our source reported that Armenia, at the very highest level, pointed out that deals threatening the balance of forces in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict were unacceptable,” Sputnik reported. Since 1994 Armenian forces have controlled the territory of Karabakh and seven surrounding districts of Azerbaijan, which Baku has pledged to get back, by force if necessary.

                    “In his [the source's] words, until now Yerevan has closed its eyes to the fact that Belarus has over the years delivered a great quantity of weapons and military equipment, helped modernize Azerbaijan's fighters and strike aircraft Su-25 and Su-27, but now Armenia has decided to not stay quiet,” the Sputnik report continued.

                    According to data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Belarus also has supplied Azerbaijan with T-72M1 tanks and various artillery pieces over the past ten years.

                    One Armenian analyst quoted by Sputnik said the deal could have fallen apart for reasons unrelated to anything Yerevan did. “It's possible that the deal was really canceled,” said the analyst, Karen Vrtanesyan. “On the other hand it's possible it was never planned, considering that all the noise about the Polonez came from the Azerbaijani side. Even the Belarusian press relied on Azerbaijani sources for their statements.”

                    And it's not as if Belarus has completely cut Azerbaijan off. Elsewhere in the Komsomolskaya Pravda interview, Alesin describes Azerbaijan as “one of [Belarus's] biggest partners. We sell them air defense systems, in particular modernized Buk-MB air defense systems. In October firings were carried out there [Azerbaijan], the Azerbaijanis were pleased and there are prospects for greater cooperation.” Meanwhile, he added that Belarus will soon start selling some unspecified “non-lethal weapons” to Armenia.

                    The battle between Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Belarus is analogous to a larger one between the two Caucasus foes and Russia. Russia has sold billions in weapons to Azerbaijan, while adhering to a mutual-defense pact with Armenia, and also providing Yerevan with weaponry at cost.

                    In spite of the apparent success in stopping the Polonez sale, Armenia may still see Belarus as an unreliable partner. While Russia provides weapons to both sides, it does so in a way that keeps the process “under control,” MP Mihran Hakobyan of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia told “Belarus is not the kind of country to sell weapons to Azerbaijan and later keep the entire process under control.”
