Armenian Ministry of Defense refutes the direction of the Su-30SM to the border with Azerbaijan

The Armenian Ministry of Defense has denied media reports about sending Su-30SM fighters of the country's air force to patrol the border with Azerbaijan due to a military conflict. This was reported by the press secretary of the military department of Armenia Shushan Stepanyan.


According to the representative of the Armenian Ministry of Defense, the flights of the Su-30SM fighter of the Armenian Air Force are in no way connected with the escalation of military operations on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.

SU-30SM are engaged in daily combat training, and this has nothing to do with escalation on the border with Azerbaijan

- said Stepanyan.

Earlier, information was circulated in social networks and the media that Armenia had flown Su-30SM fighters in the wake of the conflict with Azerbaijan.

At present, the Armenian Air Force is armed with four Su-30SM multi-functional fighters, and the delivery of eight more aircraft is expected in the near future. The Azerbaijani Air Force is armed with MiG-29 fighters of Soviet-era construction, purchased from the presence of the Ukrainian Air Force in the mid-2000s. However, the combat effectiveness of these aircraft is in doubt.

Recall that the first two Su-30SM fighters of the Armenian Air Force received at the end of December 2019, two more - at the beginning of 2020. Before receiving Russian aircraft, Armenia did not have a fighter aviation, only Su-25 attack aircraft were in service with the country.

        At a distance of 215 km. from the base airport to the border with Azerbaijan in the Tavush marz of Armenia, where the active phase is taking place, and the maximum speed of the SU-30SM at 2215 km / h, the flight time is 6 minutes. What does the author mean when he writes about “patrolling”?

      Where did they fly? Did I miss something?
      It’s just against the background of “misunderstandings” at the border that it would be better to lower military activity, even training

    Armenia took to the air Mu-30SM fighters against the backdrop of the conflict with Azerbaijan.
    .... This is also what the Mu-30SM model is ... Guys, you really have to be careful ...

    Well done Armenians! They seized a stronghold (black mountain) in the Azerbaijani territory from where they fired on the villages. Several unmanned aerial vehicles were shot down. They also blew up a general and colonel of Azerbaijan with a point strike, which was confirmed by the General Staff of Azerbaijan !!!!

      But of course they were silent about their losses, our officers do not hide behind the backs of soldiers and accept losses. Details and evidence

        Judging by the video, Azerbaijan uses Spike-NLOS. True, the reticle at the end of a little smeared.

          And there is ! Although the old video was published recently by the Ministry of Defense, Az-na recently. The fact that 4 of our turntables worked, I know I am working the night away online. The guys asked me to remain silent and a lot of things in the personal archive. Alas, I can’t punish severely in Azerbaijan, any non-official information, especially from the military. But I will tell you a beautiful video in the archive how does the Russian flamethrower system work

            Vasya, there, under the distribution, your corps artillery chief was hit. Have you already enjoyed to the best of your ability?
            It seems to me that this is too much even for the “great and invincible, victories that never knew” the army of Azerbaijan.

              The major general personally died there and led the operation of retaliation. We do not hide the losses. He was worthy. He was next to his soldiers and officers. You count your losses. We are proud of such generals. He did not sell stewed soldiers as your general.
              Throughout the journey, his body was met by people in every city of Tovuz, Gabala. Sumgayit does not sleep to meet a martyr.

                Yes well done, that the whole flock met. What else can you take?
                In an ordinary clash, a major general dies.
                And what, there is no one else to lead the fighting?

                  You don’t understand why the general personally led!
                  If this "flock" comes for you on your knees you will be praying. We want to mobilize one slogan!

                      To calm the crowd, there are already hundreds of thousands on the streets. The leaders of the State Security Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Ministry of Defense came personally to calm the crowd. They say that there is no need for mobilization, the police shout slogans together with the people. God forbid you to meet these clapping hands!

                      Previously, these people cried when the officers died. Now all the martyrs are escorted with applause. Each virus and every soldier and major and colonel and general will not hinder this. And you hide your losses, here is the difference between you and us. We are proud of each a martyr, you consider our losses and we don’t. We know a simple truth if at least one died, before the guys at the front take revenge and calm down. Therefore, we distribute the video of the fighting, and you Armenians play on emotions. Where are your facts? by our recognized losses do you want to convince us of your advantage? Tragicomedy, bury yours without cameras and quietly. We are proud of our fighters, and you are apparently embarrassed by your dead "defenders"!
