Azerbaijan announced the downed Su-25 of the Armenian Air Force. The network is discussing what exactly was shot down

Fighting in the zone of military conflict on the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh continues. According to the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense, an attack aircraft Su-25 of the Armenian Air Force was shot down during an attempt to attack the positions of the Azerbaijani army.


As reported by the press service of the Azerbaijani military department, on November 1, units of the Armenian army made an attempt to attack the positions of the Azerbaijani army on the Zangilan section of the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border.

The enemy fired at the positions of our units from mortars and various large-caliber weapons in order to capture a number of advantageous heights in this direction

- said in a statement.

However, as it is specified, the attack attempt was thwarted, the enemy retreated "to the territory of Armenia", having lost up to 30 servicemen killed. In addition, during an attempt to attack from the air, an attack aircraft Su-25 of the Armenian Air Force was shot down.

As a result of the vigilance of the personnel of our units, the enemy Su-25 attack aircraft, which attacked our positions from the air, was also shot down

- stated in the military.

The network is discussing what exactly the Azerbaijani military shot down the enemy's Su-25. Among the assumptions is the use of portable anti-aircraft missile systems (MANPADS) by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces. The Azerbaijani side itself does not disclose the weapons used against the attack aircraft in terms of information. The Armenian Defense Ministry does not comment on the enemy's summary.

Last week, on Thursday, October 29, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense reported two downed Su-25s of the Armenian Air Force.

On October 29, at about 13:18 and 13:20, two Su-25 attack aircraft of the Armenian armed forces, which tried to inflict airstrikes on the positions of the Azerbaijani army in the Gubadli sector of the front, were shot down by an Azerbaijani air defense unit

- reported the Ministry of Defense.

Meanwhile, the Azerbaijani military department confirmed the use of its own Su-25 attack aircraft to attack Armenian positions by posting a video of the attack of the attack aircraft on the official YouTube channel.

    Now they will come and say that they have already started the third round. And I'll tell you - this is the 9th combat aircraft of Armenia, which was shot down over the zone.

        Hello svp 67
        The Azerbaijani army uses helicopters, but closer to the front.
        In Nagorno-Karabakh itself, the Armenians have drawn iron cables between the mountains in many places to make it difficult to use helicopters.
        Best regards

        We saw that movie. And they saw the picture. Only the picture is abstract - it does not show state ownership.

        And in the video it is by no means visible that this is a strike from an attack aircraft laughing What came from there ??? And it is not clear at all. So it worked in vain, and therefore minus itself

    Now the enemy, in addition to Russian ground equipment, clicks like seeds and Russian manned aircraft.

    The first bell rang back in 2014 in the Donbass, when the militia shot down all the Soviet manned aircraft that flew near the outskirts. But the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for six years has been engaged in everything, but not anti-aircraft missiles with video guidance, not KAZ, not reconnaissance UAVs with optics for 15-25 km and not guided munitions with video guidance.

        And here is the question. If it is used with the weapons of the 70s and according to that tactics, then yes, it has little chance of surviving on the battlefield. But if it is converted, by means of modernization, into an aircraft equipped with modern striking means, which allow it not to enter the short-range air defense zone, then the chances for it, at the expense of survival, increase dramatically ...

There is nothing to turn the AN-2 into a platform for the delivery of "kamikaze drones", closer to the line of contact and he will do his job honestly and qualitatively, until they get knocked down, since there is no speed, no maneuver, no defense.

          In general, attack aircraft work at low altitudes, in addition, the mountainous terrain allows aircraft to avoid collisions with military air defense systems.

    When Azerbaijanis destroy equipment, it can be seen from their picture. When the Armenians shoot down An-2 Azerbaijanis, this is also evident. But the downed Su-25s are so far only in the victorious reports of both sides, and a month of battles has already taught us not to trust words.

    I must say the propaganda of the Azerbaijanis is at a high level.
    Aliyev himself constantly defends his position at a high diplomatic level, competently, you will not dig in. Constant broadcasts of news to their audience, which, turn the audience on and cultivate aggression, over on the forums, Azerbaijanis begin to threaten those who disagree with them. And here on the forum they also write steadily, the thought suggests itself that they are not ordinary people. Drone videos are also shown regularly, and now there are a lot of videos filmed in the early days of the fighting, but not previously shown. Indeed, it seems that everything is about to end with a brilliant victory.
    For me, it's all the same whose Karabakh is, the main thing is that Turkey is not there,

    But this is no longer easy, since the Wasp can get it even at its close to its maximum height, and in any case it turns out that it is better to use it together with reconnaissance. UAVs, which we seem to have enough, but for some reason in Syria they are not used like that. Is it possible for the pilot to see targets better from more than 5 km than the operator from 3-4 km?

    a) 70-year-old attack aircraft will be invulnerable in 2020? c) give, please, examples of foreign technology of the same years of production and development, which would remain invulnerable in the event of a conflict today

    The point is that now all, without exception, aircraft of even 2020 development are knocked down by a technologically advanced enemy at the expense of one or two when aviation tries to work on the ground without using remotely controlled weapons - missiles or gliding bombs with a radius of 100 km.

    The manned aircraft has become just a platform for weapons - which does not negate the presence of super-maneuverability for him to evade RVV on the terminal leg of their flight.

    In the field of air support for the ground forces, small UAVs with optics operating at a distance of 15-25 km and ammunition with laser or television guidance are in charge. The cost of such a UAV is an order of magnitude less than the cost of a manned aircraft and a pilot training course. The cost of a guided munition such as an MLRS rocket or a kamikaze drone is comparable to the cost of a manned aircraft departure. At the same time, the range of a 300-mm URS reaches 200 km, which overlaps the zone of operation of front-line aviation.

    But the Army High Command of the RF Ministry of Defense continues to clap its ears and cheerfully report "about reducing the time of using weapons by 2,5 times." am

    PS Abrams in Yemen are not equipped with KAZ.

        Read in Russian: "work on the ground without the use of remotely controlled weapons."

        The plane drops a gliding bomb with aerodynamic quality 10 at an altitude of 10 km, after which the bomb flies at a distance of 100 km, and the plane dives beyond the radio horizon of ground air defense radars to an altitude of 500 meters. There are also gliding bombs with a rocket booster, which are raised 10 km on OUT, and then they plan from there - the plane does not light up on radars at all.

    No, there are battles between the armies of Azerbaijan and Armenia, clearly not the Ukrainian version, where the local militia also played an important role, plus there were many units of volunteers, and not line units of our army as they sang in Kiev.

    In this case, the battles of the line units of the armies of the two countries are evident, the fact that in Armenia they call their forces in Karabakh as they like, this is their own affair, it does not change the essence. True, from the Armenian side, the further, the less they will remain.
