Armenian Su-30SM fighters sent to the border

70

Multipurpose fighter Su-30SM, consisting on the balance of the Armenian combat aviation, in the context of an increasing military conflict with Azerbaijani troops, they are aimed at patrolling the border with a neighboring country.


As indicated by the resource of the Armenian Military Portal, no information was received about the application of airstrikes by the indicated strike aircraft.

Earlier, on July 10, before the escalation of the conflict, the head of the Armenian military department received Russian test pilots. They were awarded the state prize of the republic, the decree on the delivery of which was signed by the president.

Test pilots Vyacheslav and Yevgeny Averyanov pointed to the high level of training of Armenian military pilots

- writes the publication Hayzinvor.

Currently, four Su-30SM units are in service with the Armenian Air Force. Eight more aircraft are expected to be delivered. Azerbaijani fighter aircraft is represented approximately by the MiG-29 squadron, however, the flight and combat effectiveness of the aircraft causes doubts among experts, since after modernization they were purchased in Ukraine in the mid-2000s. Since then, information about the improvement of aircraft has not been reported.

However, the Azerbaijani forces are armed with various air defense systems, including the S-300 Favorit and the Israeli-made air defense systems Barak 8.

      If they simply shoot, it’s not so bad, but if Azerbaijan goes on the offensive, it’s a disaster to liberate Karabakh. Armenia is our ally and we will have to fit in. This is the first option, and the second one they will sausage Armenia, and we will hand it over. They say that Karabakh is not Armenian territory, it will also be a political player, Of ​​all the cracks, it will be trampled that Russia is abandoning its allies.

        There is a third option: to squeeze Faberge to both on the political and economic plus the migration front so that both have no thoughts to conquer victoriously and draw Russia into their guano.

          Well, Armenia can still do this .. but Azerbaijan made it clear that all these negotiations were tired of him for the sake of negotiations, and they are more than determined ..
          On the political and economic front, we have already tried to squeeze from Georgia and the Baltic states to Ukraine and Belarus .. Those who are really scared-not so much gathered .. Moreover, Azerbaijan has Turkey’s support ..

        Why should Russia somehow react if the Armenians themselves fail? They, in my opinion, are easier to merge. They are beggars like church mice and there is nothing to take from them. They also turned out to be no ally and do not render us any serious assistance. Some expenses on them, and no profit. Withdraw troops and forget about them, let them scoop out from where they drove themselves with their multi-vector.

              recourse how is it? 1920 was the Armenian-Turkish war. Armenia fought with the RSFSR in November 1920, and there was no war there. Local Bolsheviks drilled summer residents and asked for help from the RSFSR. And parts of the Red Army entered Armenia through the territory of the Azerbaijan SSR. You are confused.

            For example, the NNA of the GDR was more likely betrayed, rather than leaked. And these were real allies, unlike the Armenians. As for the Armenians in the USSR, they were remembered for the struggle for freedom through outright terrorist activities and explosions in the Moscow metro. They are also the main distributors of the USSR, who organized the first bloody war.
            Now this is an openly Nazi entity, in which you will not find non-Armenian surnames in the leadership in the afternoon with fire. At the same time, they constantly exploit the theme that they are “innocent” victims of evil neighbors.

        Of all the cracks, it will be trampled on that Russia is abandoning its allies.

        The fact that the CSTO members will not even scratch themselves in the event of fighting in Karabakh is unambiguous. In the case of battles in the territory of Armenia itself (with the appropriate preparation of the information field by Azerbaijan), which is unlikely to be limited to expressing concern and ordinary calls ...
        But for Russia to fit in for the dubious pleasure of leaving Karabakh as a part of a slippery ally, there is no reason on top of the refusal of the CSTO members - this will simply bury the organization ... - this is where the massive losses will be!

        Which Karabakh? You look at the map, there are active hostilities on the border of Armenia and Azerbaijan. In fact, Azerbaijan attacked the territory of the CSTO member state. I have no doubt that if Armenia has to use Art. 4 of the Collective Security Organization treaty, Russia will take all measures to fulfill its contractual obligations. I can’t say the same about Belarus and Kazakhstan, but by the way, Russian intervention will be enough for Azerbaijan.

              The 300 ° field of view, with an average power of 1,5 sq., Is quite normal for tasks. I do not argue that it is better of course something more powerful, the Su-35 has a power of 5 kW, but there the viewing sector is also slightly less than 240 °.

              There are still stormtroopers there, and drying can do a tip on ground targets. And if right
              then the first four, there will be 12 in total. It is enough to get an advantage in the air over a neighbor who has 15 mig-29, two of which are training.

          At first glance, it seems like you're right ..
          On the other hand, there are many small states where people just live .. live happily .. Choosing leaders for themselves .. removing them from their posts, if necessary .. they work, they don’t touch anyone, the economy is such that we never dreamed of .. in general, everything is as it should be ..
          Is it the case in Russia .. the economy is zero .. ambition is higher than the roof .. we constantly think who else should lie under us .. corruption is simply prohibitive (because this is also due to the scale) .. And how much stink from us is in the media around the world !!

        Azerbaijani Deputy Minister of Defense Kerim Veliyev announced the death of two high-ranking officers as a result of shelling by the Armenian Armed Forces.
        “Unfortunately, I have to say that Major General Polad Khashimov and Colonel Ilgar Mirzeev died as a result of the fighting,” Veliyev said at a briefing on Tuesday.

During the fighting colonel of the Azerbaijani army Ilgar Mirzoev heroically died! Major Namik Hadzhan oglu Akhmedov, major Anar Gyulverdi oglu Novruzov became martyrs, Ilgar Ayaz oglu Zeynalli, warrant officer Yashar Vasif oglu Babaev and soldier super-conscript Elchin Arif oglu Mustafazade!
          I’m not a Muslim who commemorates the fighters behind a glass, only those who are in the rear like me remember. And those who are on the front lines are busy with a routine. If this war is endless, then our soldiers on the front lines are the very endlessness of Armenk!

          I understood you from the floor of the word! There is nothing to say, everything is clear.

    Meanwhile, I said there are nuances that I can not voice at the request of fighters with the front line.
    Four helicopters ironed the Armenian positions all night, the guys asked not to say until the official infa was released. Here Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense published video clips. Alas, gentlemen, I can’t publish one clip that was sent to me by front-line soldiers (according to the comments, they can figure out the fighters and punish). , Direct footage from hell shot on the phone, guess what worked.

    This is yesterday’s video of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan, I would very much like to publish a couple of videos from the frontline here. The guys shot it on their phones. Alas, I can’t say the emotion of their comrades and comment on what’s happening. Again, they will be punished if I publish it so I'm sorry there will be no exclusivity, no matter how much I would like to. Although this is a bomb in comparison with what the Defense Ministry published.

          By the way, the PSU photographed two refrigerators in the direction of the ZBD. Well, you know what's what. Soon the video will appear.

      Why are you happy? The fact that yours appeared a pack of bloodmen on the other side of the front, and the next time they will hit you from all the trunks?

        Such is the philosophy of war, and both sides are not fighting for the people, but for the land, so there is no one to support there.

    4 units Armenian Su-30SM do not solve any problems with the Armenians. They talked a lot in other topics - to such allied countries as Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, etc. instead of several heavy Su, we need two and a half dozen lighter single-engine fighters.
