Turkish Defense Ministry denies Yerevan's statements about downed Su-25 by Turkish F-16 fighter

77

Turkish information portals, as well as the Bloomberg information service, come out with publications dedicated to the statement of the press secretary of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Armenia. To remind, the press secretary of the Armenian defense department stated that the F-16 fighter of the Turkish Air Force, having risen from the airfield in the Azerbaijani city of Ganja, shot down the Su-25 attack aircraft of the Armenian Air Force. The Armenian pilot, as noted in the message, had no chance to survive.


A note was published on the pages of Bloomberg with reference to the head of the communications department of the Turkish Defense Ministry, Fahrettin Altun. According to him, the Turkish aviation not used in a war zone. It is added that the reports of Yerevan that the Armenian Air Force plane was shot down by a Turkish fighter do not correspond to reality.

From comments to similar publications in Turkish media:

I fully admit that the Armenian air defenses themselves shot down their own plane, as happened in Iran. And now they will blame the Turkish Air Force. Let's wait a few days, and then they will be forced to admit that they lied.

Looks like a cheap propaganda move by the Armenian authorities

Earlier, the main defense department of Armenia said that a Turkish fighter attacked the Su-25 attack aircraft of the Armenian Air Force from the Azerbaijani airspace at an altitude of about 8200 m.

        It remains to wait for the statements that the su 25 was shot down by the Russian Federation over the territory of Ukraine and the statements of the Russian Federation that the plane was shot down while crossing the Polish-Belarusian border and everything will fall into place and everything will become clear

        The Russian Federation and the Republic of Armenia have had a joint air defense system for several years. Who needs to know for sure whether it was an F-16 or a MiG-29 according to objective control data, and not from publications in the press.

            I don’t know how yours, but the Russian military make decisions on the basis of objective control data. And to come up with statements, refutations, confirmations is not their prerogative, if the issue does not directly concern the RF Armed Forces, or the operations they carry out. In this case, there is no talk of the RF Armed Forces. Therefore, there will be no comments.

          There, in a neighboring branch, an Armenian (if I understood correctly) threw in such a thing that sympathy for Armenia simply evaporates. Especially the statement that Russia always threw Armenia was delivered. This is the post of death of Russian soldiers in the wars with Turkey, as a result of which a significant part of the Armenian people was saved. Well. if Russians are so bad and ungrateful, save yourself. I'm tired of it.

        No one is going to fight with him, ... BUT, to put him in his place, and to remind which bucket it is, is a sacred thing.
        As for the CSTO, while the hands of the Russian Federation are tied, due to the fact that it is still a LOCAL CONFLICT about the disputed territories. As soon as he turns into a full-scale war, Erdogash will squirm in the corners, like the entire Azeybardjan military clique.
        In the meantime, Moscow is waiting, and Erdogash understands this very well and will do everything in order not to clash with the Russian Federation directly.
        And if you start a song about NATO and the Straits ... so the sultan soberly understands that no one from NATO will intercede for him and he will be alone with the Russian Federation in this conflict.

          First of all, the Armenians must set their tails between their legs and cleanse foreign lands, and not create military tension for 30 years. Karabakh is a copy of Kosovo and Palestine. And here and there the aliens squeezed out, drove away, killed the local indigenous population, taking advantage of its peacefulness and disorganization, and then, when the locals decided to restore JUSTICE and demanded to free their lands, the impudent alien thieves shouted to the whole world: Save! And the result of this small-town arrogance can be a major military conflict with the participation of many countries, and thousands of uninvolved people and huge material costs - and it is NADI?

    And who expects Turkey to confess? The downing of the Russian Su-24 was also long denied.
    The example of Iran is out of place. In the air defense of Armenia there is a system - "friend or foe". So the Turks - your excuse is not professional.

    I already wrote that this is very strange news. Since the plane was allegedly shot down in the rear in Armenia itself. That is, Turkey, having an ideal situation from the point of view of international law (when the fight is for Karabakh, which is considered Azerbaijani), suddenly went crazy and attacked a sovereign state
    In war, of course, anything happens, but it is more logical that

      ... If only Azerbaijan would have already declared victory ... 2) Either it was completely lost for technical reasons or "friendly fire". Identity is not excluded .. But the option with Turkey does not disappear .. they are not crazy .. they are just being cautious, the world is at a crossroads, has not yet decided how to extinguish the conflict, he thinks .. The time will come, the Turks will still declare if the conflict continues ..

        According to the latest information, they said.

        Not understood. Shooting down a military plane in the airspace of a foreign state can hardly be called caution smile Hypothetically, this is only possible if the Su-25 accidentally flew into the airspace of Azerbaijan. Otherwise, it is a direct act of aggression.

          I mean, they do not want to declare yet, because yes, a direct act of aggression, the Turks are not stupid. They will wait with such a statement. And if the conflict drags on, the alignment of forces is clear, they will participate in the conflict, you can say, then everyone will be on the drum. They will not condemn, they will make censure. smile

            There was an official reaction from Azerbaijan. They generally deny the shooting down. So the information about the MiG-29 is also fake from their point of view.
            "In general, we advise the Armenian side to look at the radars. The radars clearly show which plane is taking off where and when. In the radar system of Azerbaijan, there is no information at all about the raising of a Su-25 plane from the territory of Armenia."

    You don't know who to believe.
    Especially in recent years, there is a problem with truthful information.
    Somewhere elections have taken place - a refutation of the victory of one candidate, or of interference, must appear.
    Poisoned (or not) a man, without proof someone claims their point of view.
    The media should be punished for inappropriate information.

    In order to stop this war, the CSTO ultimatum and the deployment of one army corps in southern Dagestan are enough. Not nice, of course, but contractual obligations must be fulfilled. Otherwise, the whole world will laugh at us and the CSTO. And it will be necessary to forget about the influence on the former post-Soviet space.

      While the war is going on (officially) on the territory of Azerbaijan. Therefore, there is no reason for the deployment of troops in the CSTO. If someone attacks Armenia, that's another matter.

    Quote: Odyssey
    I already wrote that this is very strange news. Since the plane was allegedly shot down in the rear in Armenia itself. That is, Turkey, having an ideal situation from the point of view of international law (when the fight is for Karabakh, which is considered Azerbaijani), suddenly went crazy and attacked a sovereign state
    In war, of course, anything happens, but it is more logical that
    1) Su-25 was shot down by the Air Force or Air Defense of Azerbaijan.
    2) Either completely lost for technical reasons or "friendly fire".
    As for the question - where was it, the parties will blame each other ..

    Nobody knocked him down.
    Does the Russian Federation have no radars and means to record everything there? The meaning of the Armenian dregs to retell and discuss? If the Turks were shot down, or in general who shot down, the RF Ministry of Defense would give information. Have you all forgotten about the Russian base in Armenia and about the Russian aviation in Armenia? There the modernized MiG-29s are Russian, they would not let them shoot down the plane, they are now 100% protecting the airspace of Armenia. Demonstration flights of Russian MiG-29s were performed over Yerevan, everyone there understood everything after that.
    In the end, have respect for the Russian, own air force, do not hold them for suckers and cowards. Well, do not let the Armenians behave like suckers. If the Turks, like the Armenians, would shoot down the plane of the Armenian Air Force and the airspace of Armenia, wherever this mythical F-16 was, the MiG would have landed it.

    If they have a Su-25, or a failure of technology, they do not know the trash when it was being repaired and modernized. Most likely, at the beginning, the pilot did it off from the sad thoughts of the kamikaze on takeoff, and then died of shame after realizing the warmth in his pants as he climbed. This is the end of the bird. Well, the Armenian Defense Ministry decided to play a wedding at the funeral at least, the musicians were paid anyway ...

    But can su25 rise to 8200? Probably it is possible to monitor the air defense systems was the F16 in the given area, was it firing a missile or not.

    I have a bunch of questions for this episode.
    1. Why was the instant-25 shot down from a distance, was it not covered by relief and interference?
    2. If you knocked down a moment-29, then what? I'm not sure that Azerbaijan has a bunch of new missiles, but mostly close combat remains in the USSR warehouses
    3. There are 2 moments - the moment the rocket is launched and the moment it hits. Was the Su-25 over Azerbaijani territory in both moments?
    4. How was the goal identified?
    5. If there was a missile launch from a distance, then it is highly likely that the moment-25 received information about this and could not get away from it. But why is it so? And the terrain, and the distance, and the car itself quite allowed to seriously fight for survival.
    6. Why didn't the pilot have a chance? The plane is armored, equipped with a catapult, and the jets themselves provide decent protection for pilots if they hit from behind.
    7. On a couple of articles, I read that the pilot had a Slavic appearance - most likely not a green novice.
    It is very strange that he died.
    And all this greatly influences the assessment of the situation.
