The losses of military equipment of the Armenian Armed Forces in Nagorno-Karabakh assessed in Baku

During the hostilities on the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenia lost military equipment worth at least $ 3,8 billion, either destroyed or taken as trophies by the Azerbaijani army. This was stated by Ayaz Museibov, head of the department of the Center for Analysis and Communication of Economic Reforms (CACER) of Azerbaijan.


According to Museibov, the cost of the destroyed or captured military equipment of the Armenian army was assessed in Baku. When calculating, the minimum price was taken, but still the total cost was at least $ 3,8 billion.

The cost of destroyed or captured as a trophy military equipment of Armenia in the second Karabakh war, at a minimum estimate, is at least $ 3,8 billion

- said Museibov.

At the same time, he stressed that the military budget of Armenia for 2020 is only $ 716 million. If such funding is maintained, it will take about 38 years to restore Armenia's military infrastructure.

(...) within 44 days, damage was caused to Armenia, 5,3 times higher than the annual expenditures for military needs. Calculations and economic indicators show that it will take about 38 years to restore the military infrastructure of the current military budget of Armenia.

- added Museibov.

Meanwhile, the US Congress called for humanitarian aid to Nagorno-Karabakh. Senior Democrat of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Robert Menendez and Republican Senator Rob Portman addressed the Appropriations Committee of the Upper House of the US Congress with a corresponding statement.

The senators in a joint statement called on "to allocate funds as part of the final appropriation bill for fiscal 2021 to resolve the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the South Caucasus."

The United States must continue our long tradition of providing humanitarian assistance to those who need it most, such as thousands of ethnic Armenians who have been displaced or otherwise affected by violence.

- said in a joint statement.

        this is nizya, always multiply the losses of the enemy, and if 3,8 billion m seemed to be the norm, then we can conclude that ours were really lard by 3, and then we divide 3,8 in half and get the figure, say, 2 lard in Armenia. Considering that the losses of the attacking ones are always greater, So we get more or less sane figures, why not 3 to 1, because Azerbaijan was still better armed and the technology of the new generation was

        Moreover, Aliyev is clearly not a professional in military affairs, because he writes about the destroyed equipment and weapons, but which they did not capture and they remained on the Armenian side. And such equipment in rembats or at repair plants can be restored, and very quickly, and this is known from the Great Patriotic War. Of course, many of the same tankers died or were shell-shocked, but this does not mean that the tank is completely destroyed and it cannot be restored. The same applies to other types of weapons, so that Aliyev's "calculations" regarding the restoration of Armenia's military potential are simply childish babble that military professionals do not take seriously.

          Azerbaijan. Armenians have nothing to restore, and to buy new - there is no money. But Azerbaijan has and it will continue to modernize the army by buying OTRK howitzers, drones of the air defense system, etc.

            Although, by and large, I personally do not care who is there and what will be purchased. The main thing is to buy more weapons from us - I see the meaning of our policy in this.

          You mean the S-300V, so it covers the base itself. Moreover, there are more than 250 km to the NK region itself, and even solid closing angles (mountains). So yes, it's definitely not worth considering. They write that there is now constant air duty of fighters from the MiG-29 base. But for them, you need to give the control center on time, and for this you need a PN with a radar directly in the NK.

            the radar was destroyed in the location of the unit near the boxes (filming from CCTV cameras and from the kamikaze itself) - we saw it.
            An explosion in the valley of something that exploded well (from afar video from a drone) - we saw it.
            That is, one radar and one or two launchers were knocked out (although there were two launchers with missiles (or their mock-ups with a couple of fuel barrels under them) pointing upwards - two should not be next to each other).

      But the desire of the United States to get into Karabakh with its "humanitarian aid" can have a bad effect on the local Armenians and on the prospects for their peaceful life and on our peacekeepers. Fear the Danians who bring gifts - this is just about the modern USA and their vassals.

      nevertheless, they also used expensive high-precision weapons at false full-size mock-up targets (there is a video on YouTube, it is not clear why the Azerbaijanis posted it - for the quantity or something). Apparently there are literate people - they were able to exchange a cube of plywood for 100-300 thousand dollars per shot (bomb). But I did not see a normal disguise. Could in a week dig up three or four false (spare) positions around each BM position in the trench and at least normally wrap all these positions with mask nets?
      Indeed, in 2016 (or so) they were hitting Armenian tanks in trenches from an ATGM spike with a built-in eye - they could have looked at YouTube, draw conclusions and dig more holes with Chinese sheets - in the third trench with a false goal, rocket bombs would have ended, despite air superiority.

      They returned to themselves almost everything that was lost in the form of Armenian trophies - and yes, the goal was achieved 7 regions returned under the jurisdiction of Azerbaijan, the Armenians capitulated with a shameful defeat comparable to the losses of Syria and Egypt in the 1973 war with Israel.

    Who shot down our pilots.
    History smells bad - soon a month ago, as it happened, and we are not fed with anything the media, and this topic is bypassed.
    But under a different scenario, all these losses of Karabakh could seem insignificant.
    Against the background of the Turkish (something whispers to me - their work, or their "democrats" from Syria).
    No, if we suddenly smash to smithereens something very valuable for the Turks in Syria, or the Kurds of the PKK suddenly find Ali Baba's cave with "Arrows" and "Cornets" - then we wait, impatiently.
    And so - it is not clear somehow, dull and boring.

    Nonsense, the Armenians lost a lot of various equipment and small arms, no one argues with this, BUT no one said about the QUALITY of this weapon. Depreciation? No, you haven't heard! So the wear and tear of some copies was such that they cost about 1/10 of the original price ... and they were considered as new.
