The capture of Zangilan: the Azerbaijani army was able to reach the borders of Armenia in the southeast

207

The Azerbaijani army continues to advance in areas adjacent to the territory of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. To date, such settlements as Horadiz, Jebrail, Fizuli, Hadrut, Zangilan in the southern direction of hostilities, as well as Talish, Murovdag, Sugovushan in the northern one, have passed under the control of Azerbaijani troops.


With the capture of Zangilan by Azerbaijani troops, the situation in the southern territories, which are still held by the Armenian side, seriously complicated.

If the Azerbaijani troops succeed in breaking through the defense line southwest of the aforementioned city, then the Armenian troops will face the danger of losing control over the territories directly adjacent to the territory of the Republic of Armenia.

In particular, Azerbaijani troops may be in the direction of such settlements of Armenia as Nerkin Ande and Shikaogh in the coming days.



The exit to the southeastern borders of Armenia for the Azerbaijani army in the short term can give little. However, this is both a matter of prestige and a question of the effectiveness of an offensive operation. Moreover, in case of an intensification of the offensive in the north, the Azerbaijani side may try to cut off the territory of the NKR (Artsakh) from the territorial "communication corridors" with Armenia. This, apparently, is the main strategy of the Azerbaijani operation.

If the Armenian side does not take actions that could stop the offensive, then in the end there may be a danger of losing the main line of communication with Artsakh: the direction of Goris - Tekh - Lachin - Stepanakert.

Just a few minutes ago, the press service of the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry announced the destruction of the drone of the Armenian troops. It is alleged that he was moving in the direction of the city of Ganja.

              All three Armenian marshals were born on the territory of the NKR. The photo was taken near the city of Goris in the Republic of Armenia. Have you studied geography in Israel?

                2) NKR is not Armenia? What are you fighting for?
                3) I have humor courses around the clock - but there are no homework fellow
                4) It is necessary to make a proposal to the Israeli Ministry of Education - to include the geography of Armenia and the NKR in the curriculum, including a detailed study of the history of each settlement, its famous natives, population and economic indicators.
                5) Duplicate the program in universities in the USA, UK, Russia and China

                  NKR is the former NKAO.
                  And NKAO is a land inhabited by Armenians, after the collapse of the Russian Empire, included in Azerbaijan.
                  It is for the opportunity to live, work and raise children on this land now and the Armenians are fighting in Artsakh.

                    I explain that the national hearth of the Armenian people is in the RA. The same Armenians live in NKR (I know, they are divided into Yerevan, Karabakh, etc., but nevertheless). Therefore, I am correcting myself - Russian troops are defending the national hearth of Marshals and Generals from tomato traders.

                    Listen to you, it feels like before the collapse of the Russian Empire there was a country called Armenia, which included Karabakh and the poor Armenians were taken away and given to Azerbaijanis.

                The error came out. Open the Armenian Wiki. Mikoyan and Babajanyan were born in the village of Chardakhli, Shamkir region of Azerbaijan (this is near Ganja). This village is not included either in Karabakh or in the 7 occupied regions. The third marshal, I don't know who you mean.

                  Mikoyan was not a marshal. But Baghramyan was. Chardakhly is a famous village.
                  "In the village of Chardakhlu, 2 marshals were born, 12 generals, 57 colonels, 199 people became officers and 7 Heroes of the Soviet Union. 853 natives of Chardakhlu were awarded Soviet orders and medals. During the Great Patriotic War, 1250 people went to the front from Chardakhlu, of which 452 died the death of the brave. More than 250 people out of 1250 inhabitants of Chardakhlu, that is, every fifth of those who participated in the Great Patriotic War, took high command positions in the Soviet Army. So, let's call all the Chardakhla generals. Marshals: Ivan Baghramyan - Marshal of the Soviet Union, Hamazasp Babajanyan - Chief Marshal of the Armored Forces Generals: Arzas Tergukasov (Arshak Ter-Ghukasyan) - Tsarist Lieutenant General, Jagan Margaryan - Tsarist Major General, Sargis Manasyan - Minister of Internal Affairs of the First Republic of Armenia, Smbat Danielyan - General, Aleksan Martirosyan - General, Gurgen Manasyan - Major General, Yuri Martirosyan - Major General, Ilya Baghramyan - Major General, Leonid Martirosyan - Major General, GareginGabrielyan is a major general, Rafael Hovhannisyan is a major general and finally Grigory Karagezyan is a colonel general who, in the opinion of the Chardakhlins, just fell short of becoming their third marshal.

              Why should the Russian Federation interfere and side with the de facto Nazi Armenian regime.
              At the head of Armenia is the grandson of a Nazi, an active member of the "Armenian SS Legion".
              A monument was erected to the leader of the "Armenian SS Legion" in the center of Yerevan. Among the political parties there are direct followers of the charter and names of ethnic Armenian terrorist organizations.
              At the head of Azerbaijan is the son of a Chekist who fought against the Nazis of the "Armenian SS Legion".
              The "Armenian SS Legion" was engaged in ethnic cleansing in Transcaucasia, destroying the entire non-Armenian population (Russians, Azerbaijanis, Turks, Ukrainians, Tatars, Dagestanis, Jews, Ossetians, etc.) in the hope of creating a "Great Armenia" from sea to sea (no one else reminds?).
              After the Second World War, up to the 2000s, ethnic Armenian terrorist organizations such as ASALA, NOP carried out terrorist attacks all over the world, including the terrorist attacks in the Moscow metro in 1977.
              Does anyone know or have heard of Azerbaijani terrorist organizations or SS-sheep?
              Why should the Russian Federation interfere and take the side of the de facto Nazi Armenian regime until they fulfill at least:
              1. To demolish the monument to Nzhdeh. Behind the neck with a crane.
              2. Clauses 50 on language, criminal cases, money, channels, a kick in the ass of Pashinyan on air at the border.
              3. Reducing the number of employees of the US Embassy to 5 employees.
              4. Prayer on knees in front of the Russian Embassy.
              After that we will think ...

              Why does Russia need a war for pro-Western Armenia? The Russian language was banned, Russian channels were also banned, entrepreneurs were expelled from Russia, and the youth were taught that Armenia would be better without Russia. A monument to Garegin Nzhdeh, Hitler's accomplice, was erected. Pashinyan's grandfather, by the way, also served in the Armenian SS legion, and Pashinyan himself announced Armenia's intention to join NATO without leaving the CSTO! Does he think we are fools? I have been communicating with the Armenians at forums for a long time, even before the conflict in Karabakh, they all declare that Russia owes them everything. The audience is extremely arrogant. Armenia is a Caucasian Ukraine, which will bring us many more problems. I think Russia should stand on the sidelines and wait for Azerbaijan to return its territories so that the Armenians understand who they really are. Let them come to their senses.

      They write cut off the advanced units near Zangelan. Actually, it is not very clear why they went there at all, and did not immediately turn north at Akery. Provide a flank, maybe. But it doesn't really matter.
      With the enemy dominating the air on the plain, the Armenians have no chances, they can beat them up a little, cut off the groups that are too advanced, but nothing more.
      For the Armenians, the main thing is to keep the Aker valley and climb from there to the mountains to the north.

                    Air defense is excellent at fighting this threat. The trouble is in the training and discipline of the operators of the "allies". When I looked at the footage from Syria, where they beat on the switched off Shells, or here, looking at the radar station in the other direction, the Osam, I have only one question for the command of the air defense of the "allies" - why do you hate your own soldiers so much that you drive a bolt into multilevel air defense, for PERMANENT combat duty, for sectors that intersect and support each other, for banal CONTINUOUS sky tracking, for aviation, as one of the most important elements of air defense, for electronic warfare systems, and most importantly, for training its crews. You already got equipment for free, for which others pay more money than your whole country costs. And you expose yourself, and destroy the technique and the guys who hoped for you on earth. How many soldiers were killed and equipment burned by bayraktars? Dofiga and a little more. Why NOT ONE !!! Armenian fighter plane hasn't taken off since the beginning of the war! It's bad * when your own Air Force officers are so shaking at their bottom that they are afraid to fly and shoot down this rubbish. In my opinion, this is not a question of air defense. How there - it was not a bobbin ...

                      The Defense Army of Artsakh does not have its own aviation. As well as techniques for multilevel air defense. And they didn't get the equipment for free. Is that a trophy. And they don't have Iskander either.
                      And the army of the Republic of Armenia cannot take part in hostilities with its SU-30s, for example, because then the war will begin between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

                        The issue of their presence at the helm of the SU-30SM of the Armenian Air Force is as close to reality as the direct clashes between the Armenian Armed Forces and the Azerbaijan Armed Forces.

                  The trouble. The enemies are stronger. We must then surrender and that's it. Strange approach. Even if Armenia loses ALL of its planes and pilots, and this is not easy to arrange, because there is no need to stick out of its space, then with 8 lives they will save thousands who would have been killed from those UAVs. Isn't that the job of a military man?

                  Yes, the fighter is ineffective against the UAV! The Israelis are working against them by helicopters - at low altitude, at high - Patriot air defense system. An attempt to shoot down an F-16 scout failed, and the Patriot also managed to shoot down after "bringing to mind"))

                  When using the term UAV, everyone always confuses flies with cutlets. Your reasoning is correct for a small tactical reconnaissance company level, somewhere, somehow, it is also true for loitering ammunition. But the main losses there are for one reason - bayraktars. And this healthy, high-flying bird, an excellent target for air defense.

                  For air defense - yes, I agree
                  As for the main losses, it is not clear who they are from. Azerbaijan produces the so-called. Zerbe - Sky Strikers. Also a kamikaze, But there is a reconnaissance and strike Zerbe - 5 (Heron-TP) 14 meters long - this one is also quite vulnerable to air defense, possibly to fighters too

                  Even in the worst-case scenario, exchanging one tank / BMP / infantryman for one drone is better than one missile from a bayraktar. It's still lousy, but I don't believe in Azerbaijan's 500-1000 drones. But 5 thousand missiles for bayraktars are quite hard to believe. If we were fighting at least with large scouts and shock drones, there would have been some chances. And they just throw the guys to the slaughter. Have you seen yesterday's "counterattack"? Infantry! Without technology! Straight lines! Under fire from the air and from MLRS. What for?

                  Time for what? Are some normal fortifications being built? It seems not. And without them, with the total superiority of the enemy in the air, there is nothing to talk about. Gathering a shock group of 30 thousand for a counterattack? It seems not. Is there a chance for outside forces to intervene who need a couple of weeks to get ready? It seems not. There are certainly good chances that something is done from the above, but we just do not know, although in our age of the widespread distribution of such a natural phenomenon as a "woodpecker with a smartphone" it is hard to believe in this. Already the construction of two or three lines of serious bunkers, and the transportation for such thousands of tons of concrete and metal would be caught on camera. However, there is nothing like that, there are only meetings of politicians in Yerevan with each other and talks about a meeting between Aliyev and Pashinyan in Moscow. Taking into account the operational situation, the meaning of all this, as I understand it, is to be able to surrender in such a way that your own people will not be torn, and preferably not kicked out of the chair. And in my opinion, this is precisely why they are now purposefully destroying the army with infantry counterattacks. So that after the war there was no one to present claims to the gentlemen leaders.

                  Wait and see. I don't think this will last longer than 2 weeks. As for the effectiveness of aviation in the mountains - well, the artillery in the mountains is very much tied to prepared positions. Where on a plain a destroyed weapon can replace a neighboring one, in the mountains the fire pattern is strongly tied to the position, more than 50 meters to the left or right, and the protected pass / valley / height is not shot through due to the folds of the terrain. So the decrease in the effectiveness of aviation will be proportional to the decrease in the effectiveness of artillery and MLRS. I don’t think that something will change dramatically, and the direction to Stepanokert / Shusha remains, and there are not really mountains there.

But this is if there are commanders who are capable and, most importantly, who are willing to organize such a defense.

                  If Stepanokert / Shusha are distant, then most likely yes, in the south they will try to plug the hole and level the front, and it will even work out with the tactics you described.

    The Defense Army of Artsakh does not have its own aviation. As well as techniques for multilevel air defense. And they didn't get the equipment for free. Is that a trophy. And they don't have Iskander either.
    And the army of the Republic of Armenia cannot take part in hostilities with its SU-30s, for example, because then the war will begin between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

    That is, the infantry of Armenia can, the armored vehicles of Armenia can, the Ministry of Defense of Armenia can OFFICIALLY lead all this and speak out, but they cannot provide air defense. And that's why there are a bunch of videos where he was burned. Off and unmasked as usual.

Both are Armenians, both speak Armenian and both have an Artsakh passport. There are no troops of the Republic of Armenia on the territory of Artsakh. And there is no technology either. It's just that the Defense Army has the same BM-21, D-30, D-20, T-72, BMP and armored personnel carriers, which are used by the army of the Republic of Armenia. Therefore, it is not surprising that they can be confused.
    But the Defense Army has no SU-30SM, it was not, and there is no place to appear yet.
    As for the air defense of the Republic of Armenia, you may be forgetting, but they have to defend the sky of the Republic of Armenia as well.
    Therefore, unfortunately, they did not manage to create a strong anti-aircraft defense in Artsakh.

    I'll tell you very easily. The Armenian Defense Ministry does not report on the successes and failures of the Artsakh fighter. It does not declare that the enemy has been knocked out of somewhere, or, on the contrary, has come somewhere. It does not publish lists of losses of the Armenian Armed Forces if they are not true? Everyone understands everything, so why kill SO MANY people for the sake of a legal hook? As for me, Armenia simply does not have air defense specialists.

      And the CD is a difficult target for fighters. A training ground is one thing, a real war is another. But those UAVs that are used are much more complicated. They run at ultra-low altitudes, the RCS is small. You can shoot down, but you need to know where the target is, when to fly out ... you will not hang in the air for 20 hours like a drone. And there are many drones.
      Actually, here you can look at the experience of Syria. With great difficulty they provided the air defense of one base, and then the drones-a la Ali-express (the militants did not use anything else) strained it a lot. The technicians of the Syrian army burned the Bayraktars enough. And no air defense helped. And the fighters did not shoot down anything at all. In Libya, MiG-29 SMTs were able to shoot down a couple. Here are all the successes of the fighters.

      The biggest damage is anki and bayraktars. There are few of them, they are expensive, they don't fly low, EPR is like a helicopter. Isn't it a goal? Yes, for little things like kamikaze you need a high-quality air defense system and I have already described which one in this discussion. But even if we put it out of our minds and assume that the sky was cleaned at least of large stones, then if you spend 1 UAV on one tank, it's still not the same as what's going on there now. Azerbaijan is not the United States; they will not have enough money for such a quantity of high-precision weapons even with Turkish help.

      C300 I didn't understand why they were brought there. The range allows working from Armenia, and the radars are not designed at all for objects with EPR like a fly, there are other systems for this. They have framed it, and for no one knows why.

      The Su-30 does not have missiles that hit 150 km. And even on drones. The R-37 is integrated only on the MiG-31BM. And now on the Su-35. And they and the Russian Federation are extremely few.

      If in general, then yes, the preparation does not shine (which is only yesterday's epic attack on foot, a la PMA is worth it), but considering that for Armenia this is a "general war" (with the involvement of all who can be), then in general nothing else can be expected do not have to. Somewhere the rules are in place, somewhere not very.

In terms of air defense, the same Wasps and the first Buki with Tunguska (maximum Tor) under a flurry of UAV attacks. Only there are aircraft and helicopters and the scale is 30 times larger.
      As for 4 Su-30s, the General Staff of Armenia does not send them into battle. You can, of course, assume that they are all completely ignorant, but I still don't think so ...

      The Su-30 does not have missiles that hit 150 km. And even on drones. The R-37 is integrated only on the MiG-31BM. And now on the Su-35. And they and the Russian Federation are extremely few. And the rocket under the UAV, and even against the background of the earth, was not sharpened at all. And 4 sides are extremely small for constant duty. Not to mention how he would even see these UAVs against the background of mountains and greenery at such a distance. This is not a B-52.

      About the R-37 - why is it so rude? Did I say something about 300 km? The R-27 and R-77 have launch ranges of just over 100 km according to official data. Thus, for which calibers of 300 km were listed for many years. Why is that against the background of the earth? If the vaunted bayraktar or anka descends below 5-6 km, its wasps will be removed. And since this is not the case, he flies at 7-8. And there it is very good to see him, there is no question of any background of the earth. Whether he is unmanned there or not, EPR is not sickly there. Well, I don’t call on company-level scouts to remove from the Su-30, or loitering ammunition the size of a toy. But the main problem is long-flying reconnaissance and strike drones - healthy and high flying due to their performance characteristics - an excellent target. As for 4 planes, which are not enough for constant duty - well, they saved a resource, well done. How many boys killed from the bayraktar would have been alive, if in a month of battles these dryers had taken at least a dozen?

      Are there reservist recruits engaged in air defense? Hard to believe.

      The level of training of the officers is much higher. Personally, I know many, and looking at what is happening they talk a lot and abusively about the tactics, strategy and training of the Armenian junior and middle officers. As for the war with the PRC, I really can't imagine why the Chinese should commit suicide SO extravagantly.

      UAVs, at least of the bayraktar level, will not be used at all in a serious conflict. These are just dumps thrown out. Because Buki, because electronic warfare, which, as we know, allows even vaunted American drones to land, because they have their own aircraft, because militarily normal states have more reliable intelligence systems, for example, satellite. No, drones are purely anti-poser weapons. It is too easy to negate its advantages for an air defense system designed for low-signature missile launchers.

      No, not ignorant. A more accurate term is traitors. They were issued a directive - to lose. Slowly and bloody, so that Russia either climbed without having rights, because Karabakh was forbidden to recognize it, and received another sanctions just for the elections in which the "red plague" is needed like air, or crap as an ally, which will be further discussed in the information war and used as an excuse to spoil our relations with allies. And the successful work of air defense, as well as some kind of protracted equal conflict, does not fit into this strategy.

    Why NO ONE !!! Armenian fighter plane hasn't taken off since the beginning of the war!


    You are funny ... Armenia is not at war, this time.
    In fact, it is a police operation that bears a faint resemblance even to the military operations of the Second World War on the eastern front. One side has neither aviation, nor air defense, nor even decent artillery. And the second is tied to the fact that in fact he is putting things in order in his house and cannot swing a club, chasing a mosquito in his apartment.
    Hence the expanse of all toy devices of the Farman level of the beginning of the century. It is surprising that Budyonny's cavalry carts are not yet available.
    In general, you need to take them all by the collar. They will never stop themselves. Once divided into nationalities - this is war forever. Sometimes it will simply subside from powerlessness.

Therefore, Moscow is afraid of a scenario in which these systems will show their shortcomings in a combat situation.
    In the recent military clashes in Nagorno-Karabakh between Azerbaijan and Armenia, the Armenian S-300 failed to neutralize the destructive attacks of Azerbaijani drones. Israeli-made Harop loitering ammunition strikes Armenian rocket launchers with impunity.

    Russia delivered its S-300s to Syria at the end of 2018. And the Russian military still operate these air defense systems. This means that Syria cannot use them to prevent ongoing Israeli strikes. Russia is simply afraid of losing its S-300 systems if activated, justifiably fearing Israeli aviation. Thus, demonstrating to the whole world the complete technological superiority of Israel and the West.

      Uh-huh. С300 - full G. Especially against UAVs. Do not care that the UAV should not fly up to the STRATEGIC air defense for 100 km! that for this there is a whole complex of things, Buki at the middle distance, Torah and Armor at the near one, Tunguska at the mid-range, and all this works together, with multiple overlapping zones. And then the C300 will do its job - fighters, bombers, OTRK missiles and avaks. Buki of their own - by attack aircraft, large UAVs thrusting into the zone with fighters, Torah - by small and medium-sized UAVs, helicopters thrusting by attack aircraft, Shells / Wasps - by all UAVs in the zone, MLRS shells, loitering ammunition, etc., and Tunguska can plug holes if few. This is how it should look, and this is how it is done here. And there they play with toys and grab them themselves and destroy the equipment. Blaming the C300 for a defeat from a small UAV is the same as calling a tank shit if the crew escaped leaving it on the battlefield.

    We can say that if we were attacked today, in the trenches in the same way enemy drones would mix our guys with the ground. Since we also don't have shock drones. Although our air defense is the best in the world, it will not withstand the massive use of drones. A gross miscalculation of the command on the face. So the torch needs to be sent to the Supreme today, so that tomorrow we won't have this terrible dream.

      Tch Azeri fell into the operational void and occupy territories and NP, which are covered only by mobile groups.

      The first map shows that their directions of strikes are straightforward and everywhere they occupied territories from the settlement of the settlement. and roads, not steppes and mountain ranges ...
      In the North (first map) 3-4 "boilers" may appear from parts of the NKR, so the latter will either leave for Armenia, or leave under UAV attacks deep into the occupied territories ...
      But in fact, everything is still bad for the Armenians.

      That's for sure. There are no "trump cards" for negotiations, Armenians do not need an occupied territory without a settlement. and the population, having occupied the latter, the Azerbaijanis will create a configuration of troops already against Armenia itself ... cutting off the border of Armenia from Iran and access to the largest source of fresh water in Armenia ...

        Well, to the fullness you blow the alarm.
        Let's take a better look at a more informative map.

        If the southern regions: Jebrail, Fizuli, Zangelan are not a steppe, then what is it?
        Now let's look at the "successes" of Azerbaijanis in the north and east of the NKR.
        They are equal to zero. That is, in 3 weeks the village of Talysh was taken in the north. On 28/09/2020 Azerbaijanis proudly reported our Omar pass, our Murovsky ridge, we have fire control over the Vardenis-Karvachar-Stepanakert road. Maybe this will be news to you, but besides the Goris-Lachin-Stepanakert road, there is also the “South Gate” in Artsakh. So today there are no Azerbaijani Armed Forces in the Mravsky Mountains. The south gate is fully operational. But winter is approaching. In January 1994, 701 brigades of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces tried to overcome the Omar Pass. There is a user here from Azerbaijan named Alibek. Ask him how many thousands of soldiers entered and whether at least a couple of hundred came out? To pull up the rear at such heights at subzero temperatures, and through the narrow neck of the Omar pass, is not a pleasant pleasure.
        Now let's discuss Azerbaijan's progress along the Martakert-Martuni line. How many millimeters did the Azerbaijani Armed Forces penetrate in the central direction?
        And, finally, a map of the distance that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces will need to cover along the Akari River in order to get from Zangelan to Berdzor (Lachin).
        If you look at it carefully, you will notice that shortly before Berdzor the road will pass a few centimeters from the state border of the Republic of Armenia

        Therefore, I would not rush with your forecast on Azerbaijan's attack on the Armenian Zangezur and the exit to the largest source of fresh water.
        The Askars made their way for 30 km across the steppe for a month. With all their Bayraktars and other wunderwalks.
        Let's see how long they will try to climb the mountains.
        The weather will deteriorate, the heights will rise, the drones will fly at the heights available to Arrows and Eagles. You know why in the 1991-1994 war. have stopped using aviation in the conflict? Because it fell often.
        International pressure on Azerbaijan and Turkey will only grow.
        Further advancement of the Azerbaijanis will be associated with a direct clash of infantry units.
        I think that the Russian proverb will once again prove the depth of folk wisdom: "It was smooth on paper, but they forgot about the ravines."

        No Turkish base will appear in Azerbaijan. If it were possible, it would have already appeared. Nobody will let her go there. And Aliyev himself hardly intends to lie under the Turks. His image as a Turkish puppet is propaganda. He has his own interests. He needs to become the leader who won back the lands lost by his predecessors. It can - and his authority and power will become unshakable for a long time. Even if not, then the already repulsed will be enough for some time for victorious reports. request
        I disagree about the defeated Armenian troops. They suffered serious losses in equipment and were defeated in the south, but so far they are combat-ready. There was no escape. And it should be understood that the Azeri army is fighting primarily against the army of Armenia, although not against its main forces. And the main forces have not yet entered the battle. It's too early to wave your caps. The main thing is yet to come.
        Aliyev is not even considering the option of attacking Armenia itself. He is extremely careful. No wonder he constantly gives interviews to the Russian media and promotes the thesis that he is fighting against the Soros puppet and against the pro-Western government of Armenia. Plus, his good Russian language also looks advantageous against the background of Pashinyan. Plus - he is still the son of his father, who was part of the Soviet imperial elite.

        My opinion is that he will be allowed to defeat the Armenians and recapture the NKR. Simply because this conflict hinders us and the Azeri in our relationship. Plus, Erdogan needs something so that he can call a peremogy and extinguish passions at home a little. And we do not want the Sultan to be overthrown at all. Against this background, the Turks are evacuating 4 of their defenders on the surrounded part of Idlib. I would not be surprised if soon after Karabakh the offensive of the Syrian army begins in Idlib with the aim of recapturing M4. The Sultan needs something to shut up the electorate. request

            Russia and Azerbaijan will not be allowed. Neither one nor the other needs it there. Aliyev badly needs Turkish help to reconquer Karabakh, but then the Turks will only interfere with him. Turks tried not only to put Azeris under themselves. They tried to pull it off in almost all the republics of the SA. And everyone took money from them, smiled, but they were in no hurry to bend under them.
            The idea of ​​Pan-Turkism is similar to our old idea of ​​Pan-Slavism. We promoted it without realizing that the rest of the Slavic peoples did not smile at all under us. But taking money and protection, paying with ostentatious love and flattery, is always welcome. The Turks have the same situation with the Turkic peoples.

          How tired I am! "Azerbaijan's blitzkrieg failed"; "Askers made their way for 30 km in a month." Let's take a look at the numbers. In less than a month, the Azerbaijani army in the mountainous area conquered about 15% of the territory of Karabakh and the adjacent 7 regions. Remember the number? fifteen%.
          On November 19, 1942, the Nazis occupied the maximum territory of the USSR - 1 thousand square kilometers. On November 795, 7, all territories were liberated. In total, very roughly over 1944 months on average, the Soviet army liberated 23% of its occupied territory. And, for the most part, flat terrain. Once again -4.5% per month.
          Question: is the Azerbaijani army fighting badly?

            Do you want to be honest? Blitzkrieg, of course, was not planned. The fortification in the mountains, which was built for 25 years, cannot be opened in a couple of weeks. Kobani's example in Syria is indicative. Stories about the disrupted blitzkrieg are Armenian propaganda. There is a planned offensive. Quite normal. request
            In general, according to the database, you can say a thing that will offend you. My IMHO. Azerbaijani soldiers are much worse than Armenian ones and fight weakly on their own, but the Azerbaijani General Staff fights competently, unlike the Armenian. That is, all attempts to counterattack and cut off are calculated and stopped. Maybe they themselves move their brains, maybe there are advisers. request
            Well, and most importantly - ALIEV PREPARED WELL FOR WAR. And at all levels. He waited for a window of opportunity, prepared the ground diplomatically. The mere fact that the Azerbaijani army was simultaneously pumped up with equipment by its competitors - Turkey, Israel and Russia, says a lot; it was well stocked with weapons and prepared technologically. His general staff drew up a plan for a new generation of war. I have established coordination with the Turks. Knowing the fighting qualities of the Azerbaijani infantry, through the Turks he scored Syrian cannon fodder in order to reduce the losses of his own soldiers in the first most difficult stages of the war. Again, he competently conducts propaganda work. In general, if a miracle does not happen, then if not all, then most of the NKR he will win back. request

    The goals of the war are clear!
    Azerbaijan seeks to move its Security Forces to the state border established by international law.
    Armenia and its security forces are trying to prevent this.

    Both sides could compromise and establish a new state border themselves. Young people are dying for the sake of by no means densely populated territories, and not entirely economically profitable, instead of simply settling and populating these lands with self-sufficient people.

    Sucks is shorter.

      The war is dragging on, losses are growing. Azerbaijan wants to take revenge and return its lands. Armenia does not want to give back what has been wrung out How will it end? Who knows. Truce does not work, opponents want victory. Want is not harmful. As long as the conflict is limited, the parties do not cross the red lines, but everything can change. In case of further success, the conflict could escalate into a full-scale war with strikes on cities and villages, the Armenian nuclear power plant, Azerbaijani oil and gas pipelines and dams. Then the civilian casualties will be in the tens of thousands. And then, having washed in blood, the opponents will conclude a truce and will be preparing for a new war. Only the Russian Empire and the USSR managed to untie this knot and temporarily end the centuries-old war. So, the only solution, it seems to me, may be the Azerbaijan-Armenian Confederation

              At one time, the Armenians had great opportunities, and took advantage of them in the 90s.
              But the potential of Azerbaijan is initially noticeably higher, and sooner or later it had to be realized one way or another, which we are now seeing.
              Armenia needed to negotiate a broad autonomy for Karabakh with guarantees, but they missed the moment when they could agree on favorable terms for themselves.
              And now Azerbaijan has restored its potential, and is realizing it in Karabakh, and the conditions for solving the problem will not be so convenient for Armenians.
              Now there is a set of starting positions for renegotiations - the greater the initial conditions, the higher the requirements and the stronger the position in the negotiations.

                  I don't think so.
                  We can talk about autonomy within Azerbaijan at best.
                  And the sooner this is understood in Armenia, the greater the rights of autonomy can be said. Ideally, Armenia should have done this when it had a significant military advantage over Azerbaijan, but the train left.
                  But Armenia may well try to agree on a corridor to Karabakh in exchange for a similar one to Nakhichevan.
                  But here, too, there is a nuance - Nakhichevan borders on friendly Turkey, and Karabakh is inside Azerbaijan.

                    And then they can bargain for the Lachin corridor and the autonomy of Karabakh.

            "A piece of territory before Nakhichevan is to cut off Armenia's access to Iran." This is a technical question. It is possible to simultaneously leave the gate of Armenia to Iran, and at the same time give a corridor to Azerbaijan to the Nakhchivan territory.

              The point is that in response to the recognition of Karabakh as Armenian, Azerbaijan will receive a similar part of the territory of Armenia.

                In theory, everything is there. The question is about the will of political leaders and the vector of development of Armenia. If it wants to become a developed country with a powerful IT sector of the economy, as well as, say, Las Vegas and Luxembourg for Persians, Turks, Azerbaijanis and Georgians, thus getting into the top thirty countries in HDI is one thing. If it wants to remain a Third World country with the only national consensus in the form of Artsakh, that is different.

                no territories. but there is a border with Iran. The option is like this - Karabakh - entirely of Armenia. territories around Karabakh - to return completely to Azerbaijan. The Armenians will have to make serious concessions and give up part of their territory for the corridor to Nakhichenvan. For Azerbaijan, such an exchange is access to its cut off territory and to the border with Turkey. It costs a lot. In exchange, you can give the Lachin corridor to the Armenians. Only mutual compromises can solve something.

      The parties are fighting for what they consider to be theirs, but they must fight for their land. request It's another matter that this war can become much more destructive if Armenia nevertheless decides not to merge the NKR and fit in in full. Iskanders can reach not only Ganja, and Azerbaijan has nothing to fight back from them. Strikes on power plants, dams, large enterprises, compressor stations, etc. will lead to irreparable losses for Azerbaijan. Only then, even theoretically, Armenia will no longer be able to turn to the CSTO. And the objects of Armenians on the territory of Armenia will become the legal target of Azeri drones.
      So far, all parties are in fact merging the NKR. Let's look at the policy of Azerbaijan, if it can still recapture these lands. In this case, I would not rule out his joining the CSTO.

      So back in 2016, in the same places, Azerbaijanis knocked out equipment in the same way using long-range ATGM Spike-LR and UAVs Harop and Searcher. But then the conflict lasted only 4 days, which, the PMSM, created the illusion on the Armenian side that the defense was strong and nothing needed to be changed, and that the knocked-out equipment was not a systemic flaw, but the result of "individual shortcomings."
      As a result, over the past 4 years, the Armenian side did not draw any conclusions from that conflict.

          Even to start Operation Uranus to encircle the Germans at Stalingrad, Stalin did not allow until air superiority was achieved. Otherwise it would have been like near Demyansk, the Germans set up an air bridge and quietly sat surrounded. Azerbaijan, having won air supremacy, destroying the Armenian air defense in Karabakh, will be able to continue the offensive as planned, without resorting to contact battles, but simply bypassing and squeezing out the Armenian army.

        The Anglo-Saxons began to bomb effectively after the landing in France. Before that, the cost of the bombing cost the Anglo-Saxons several times more than the losses of the Germans. And from 1939 to 1942, the raids on Europe were repelled simply by the insignificant forces of German aviation. It is another matter that the Red Army began to receive gasoline from the Allies from about 1942, in the transportation of which about 10 railway tanks were simultaneously involved. And since 000, the aviation of the Red Army began to fly at higher, rather than economical, speeds, and its graduates of flight schools began to have a number of training flight hours, which allowed the most talented cadets to get out of the suicide bomber category.

            Well, they flooded a little German factories, burned German nurses, invalids, old men and old women who could not go down to the basements. Great Britain could not aim at bombing the Germans in Germany during the day without effective fighter cover, otherwise its bomber aviation would have been exterminated by the Nazis.And for this it was necessary to create and maintain an aviation group in Great Britain that required huge resources, with which the Red Army would make the Germans a trio of Stalingrad, and Chiang Kai-shek would be able to begin the liberation of Burma and China and the blockade of Japanese shipping in the South China Sea. And when the air force crushes the enemy's mobile forces and the allied army takes control of important industrial centers of France, it justifies the costs of maintaining bomber aircraft.

              About babies and old women -. The Germans began to transfer aviation from the eastern front in 1943 precisely because of the mass death of their peacekeepers. As for the side-by-side bombing - everything is correct, so they bombed at night and Harris spoke in favor of bombing cities. About "having which" - yes it is not clear. They were strategists. Also do not forget that the quality of the training of the British pilots who won the Battle of England differed for the better from that of the Red Army and the Kuomintang.

                In the Battle of England, the British in victory was accompanied by a geographical factor. Roughly the same thing happened when the Germans tried to bomb Moscow in 1941. The General Staff assessed the losses of the Soviet air defense system during the defense of Moscow from air raids as negligible. In 1940 the British and French air forces in France were defeated. In the USA, after 25 raids on Germany, the crews were replaced. In Great Britain and the USSR they fought either to victory or to death. It would be more correct to speak of the small number of flight training flights of flight school graduates in the Red Army.

      Their regular army is already at war. And, of course, they will strike. Therefore, most likely, Azerbaijan will not go directly to Lachin, but limit itself to fire control over the northern road, going up the Askari. And then it can hit from Hadrut.

      The enemy would use a high-altitude drone with long-range ammunition against short-range air defense, and against long-range air defense a massive all-round raid of cheap vehicles, each of which would cost an order of magnitude less than an anti-aircraft missile. Having made a breach in the air defense line, an attack is organized from different angles of the next section. Or a 400-gm plastic drone correcting long-range artillery fire. For Armenians, the main problem is the massive use of Turkish drones. If the aircraft engine, the design of the aircraft, its control system, the technology of all this have been designed and debugged, then the mass copying of another hundred drones is faster than preparing one calculation for an air defense installation.

    I would not say. The number of their army is more than sufficient, therefore, the talk that the Armenians rained down was premature. Now, on the contrary, the most difficult phase will be in combat and the most dangerous. Armenia will beat you with art from its territory, they are already digging along the border with Azerbaijan in the south. Azerbaijan will begin to respond, taking into account the distances and the attempts of the Armenians to pull Russia up through constant provocations, the question is how long the Separate Army in the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic will remain out of the fighting. If a Separate Army in the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic of Azerbaijan enters into battles, then it will rush ... Armenia will be cut off from Iran having an exit only through Georgia, the Turkish-Armenian border is clearly not counted, plus Yerevan can be poured from the territory of the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic in response to blows on Ganja, so it won't seem like a little.
    So far, experts are right who consider everything that happens to be a Russian-Turkish match, but at any moment the Armenians can throw out such a knee that Baku will respond, or they will arrange a provocation and Russia will get involved, and then Turkey. Now all the meetings in Yerevan, rather not how to fight, but how to make others fight for the Armenians, and this is achieved only through intrigues and provocations. Let's see what we have thought up and come up with.

    If you are not a supporter of the "dismemberment of Iran" then how do I understand a supporter of the return of the lost northern territories to Iran? The return is impossible, since Russia conquered these territories not from the farces, but from the Azerbaijanis - the Qajars state. That is, it would be quite logical to restore the Azerbaijani state through the annexation of the southern lands to the northern ones, since it was the northern ones that turned out to be independent, and the southern ones, after the coup in 1920, became essentially a colony of farces.

    If any provocation of the Armenian and their masters works, confusing all the cards of Russia and Turkey, frustrating their agreements, then this thin isthmus may cease to exist, either at all, or becoming not thin at all.
    All that the current situation has given to Azerbaijan as a result of the agreements between Russia and Turkey is the right, at the cost of the lives of their soldiers, that is, their citizens, to liberate their occupied territories. And here everything depends and depended on Russia, and Aliyev is unlikely to go beyond the agreements and allowed by Putin. So the only question is what agreements exist, is it allowed for Azerbaijan, if it is ready to lay down the lives of soldiers and resources, to throw out the Armenian Armed Forces completely, or was it allowed to take only 5 + 2 regions by force, on which the Armenians rested.
