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.

  • Armenian Air Force and Air Defense

    We have strong army but still i can't understand why the government of Armenia doesn't modernize the air force. We have got only 15 SU-25 jets

    I think after Georgian-Russian war we should easily know that strong air force is very important factor for victory

    we must wake up before possible enemy attack

    Because it's expensive and we won't be able to match the one Azeris have so we concentrate on strenghening our air defense which is the best in the Caucasus.

      Re: Armenian Air Foce

      Federate is right. During the Artsakh war, the Azeris exhausted their meager air force and had many losses. The Armenians wisely used their air defenses and concentrated on air defense. Even with the Azeris hiring mercenaries from Russia and Ukraine, the Armenians were able to liquidate their offensive capacity.


      Air forces require constant importation of spare parts and maintenance. They are expensive to maintain and many jet fighters become obsolete as air defenses continually advance.

      In fact, the Russians are developing newer technology that will soon make both tanks and jets obsolete. We got to see some of the new arms in action when Hezbollah shocked Israel in 2006. That was only a taste of what is to come.

      Armenia may never have an offensive air force but they will have a much more efficient a cheaper way to defend their country.

          Don't talk out of your @ss.


          RS is correct, cheaper to keep an air defence then air force. However, I think we will see the day (especially as Armenia's economy gets larger) when Armenia has one of the top air forces in the region. Plus many of our pilots are trained in Russia, which imho has the best in the world.
          For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
          to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.

            when it comes to national defense? I don't think so.
            I was taught how to think.

                  I am a Hayastanci, I visit every year and the vast majority of my relatives live in Armenia. My brother also moved back to Armenia from the u.s. a couple of years ago and now has a family of his own there.

                  I suspect you left Armenia and have never been back?
