"Millions on planes are useless": an expert from South America on the results of the Karabakh war

78

The Karabakh war showed that robotics penetrated even the remote mountainous region contested between Azerbaijan and Armenia.


Drones managed to create an advantage during the fighting

- writes expert Emmanuel Roose on the pages of the South American press, pointing out that the active use of drones, despite the large losses among them, made it possible to destroy both armored vehicles and anti-aircraft weapons covering it.

This technology is an innovation in the art of war, completely changing tactics on the battlefield. Azerbaijanis were able to take advantage of the simple logic: without aviation it is impossible to win, but instead of spending millions on purchasing an aircraft and training pilots, it is better to purchase remotely controlled UAVs

- the author sums up the results of the confrontation, believing that "spending millions on planes is useless."

In his words, Baku was eventually able to thoroughly prepare for the war by purchasing unmanned systems from Turkey and Israel. However, for the first time they were used by Azerbaijan back in 2016 during the next exacerbation in the theater of operations.

Now they have become regular participants in military operations in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, especially from the Azerbaijani army, which has the superiority of UAVs

- indicates the expert on the pages of the publication Pucará Defensa.

As he believes, the advantages that drones provide are enormous: they cannot carry tons of ammunition, but are extremely effective due to the accuracy of the strike and are difficult to detect with current air defense systems.

      It is better to drive in Honduras than to drive Honduras in Kolyma. The expert from South America really amused. In Nagorno-Karabakh, UAVs played such a prominent role only because of the lack of traditional aviation, air defense and electronic warfare systems.

      You don't need to be an expert here either. Drones are effective and effective weapons. Aviation is not going anywhere, but the conditions for its use, battle tactics will change taking into account the interaction with drones. This is the future! However, remembering Soviet military drones from the 60s and 70s: Tu-123 "Yastreb", Tu-141 "Strizh" ..., but at least the German FAU-2, you understand that humanity is marking time, spending on all sorts of iPhones.

        Here you are wrong.
        If there were no iPhones, there would be no drones.
        Drones have become effective weapons with the development of information technology
        and miniaturization of electronics.
        In simple terms: an iPhone sits in each drone and controls it.

            I try in vain to explain to you that
            all the latest communication technologies and electronics are concentrated in modern mobile phones. All the most modern that have just come up with.
            A mobile phone is a powerful and flexible computer weighing 100 grams. From it you can control drones, satellites and armies.
            "Bloody" do not use even a hundredth of a percent of its capabilities.
            And the military uses it. Only it is not in the usual case with a screen.

      Well, in principle, they have advanced.
      The composition of the ground forces of Honduras:
      In 2010, in service were 12 light tanks "Scorpion", more than 57 BRM, more than 118 towed artillery pieces, over 90 mortars, 120 pcs. 84-mm recoilless guns "Carl Gustaf M2", 50 pcs. 106 mm M-40A1 recoilless guns and 48 anti-aircraft artillery mounts [21].

      In the 90s, they still had M-3 tanks in service.

        Well, let's just say the hope for air defense and electronic warfare in its current form, in terms of fighting drones, let's say, is greatly exaggerated. Robots entered the battlefield, and this is already an objective reality. We need absolutely new means of dealing with them, both technical and organizational. Many people still do not understand this and continue to prepare for the wars of the late 20th century. The battlefield has radically changed with the arrival of remotely controlled and robotic technology, and the speed of this change is growing from year to year and it is necessary, not only to prepare for the present moment, but also to calculate the development and predict what will appear in the near future and in the medium term. ... Unfortunately, the old generation, entrenched in our "commanding places" and living with the old "victories" and "merit", is not capable of foreseeing changes in the development of the armed forces, both in technical terms and in terms of management and organization. this is so, to be convinced of this, it is enough to recall the story with "unnecessary" Russia drones, which, allegedly, "will never replace the pilot", read the reports of the Ministry of Defense on "exercises", see how they are carried out in the form of "dashing" cavalry "attacks "with the obligatory" fulfillment of ALL assigned tasks ", as well as shooting at" parachutes ", at" conditional points "or at targets, the level of old, like this mammoth itself, P-15 or non-maneuvering NURs, which do not carry any means of counteraction (the main -to be cheaper) ....

          "Are the hopes for air defense and electronic warfare exaggerated?"
          That is unlikely...
          The question is what air defense and what kind of electronic warfare?
          The Armenians were not even able to fully mobilize, not only the air defense system of the 60s, but not a single one was noticed. Not smoke or aerosol screens, or strikes on drone bases, or much of what is already there to counter the UAV.
          And how many vehicles were abandoned with minimal damage and without them ...
          So the use of drones in almost polygon conditions does not give an exhaustive picture, as well as the strikes of the Aerospace Forces in Syria.
          But, to take certain measures to improve the technology and tactics of air defense, you need to strive for this,

    That's it! Baku could, but Yerevan could not, and besides, he did not want to fight much.
    especially from the Azerbaijani army, which has the superiority of the UAV

Azerbaijan, after the crashed helicopter, raised drones. and it was destroyed by the air defense system .. remember the beginning of the war, the drones went actually for 5-6 days ... yes there were drones, but reconnaissance ... they were cheaper then they lost a couple but they got the info ...

              There is no reason to draw far-reaching conclusions about the incredible success of the UAV. IMHO.
              If a trained army fights against an untrained army, it will always win.
              By the way, did the Turks control the drones? Not Azerbaijanis?
              The Armenians relied on the defensive line and completely failed the air defense.

                    Perfectly planned war by the Azerbaijan-Turkey coalition, with technical superiority.
                    Reconnaissance (UAV + RER) identified targets, Azerzky REP suppressed radar, aircraft, artillery, missiles, UAVs destroyed equipment.
                    Everything is according to the classics. This is not the first time that ground-based air defense has been destroyed this way. In general, there are no examples in history when air defense rescued someone.
                    It was developed among the Armenians. ZSU, Osa, Torah, Buki, S-300, electronic warfare means. Everything is like a textbook. The tutorials are just out of date.

                    Armenia lost four of the six Russian-made Tor-M2KM anti-aircraft missile systems (the most modern models) deployed in Karabakh in the first 15 days of the war, and half of the entire NKR air defense was destroyed in 15 minutes on September 27.

                    This was stated by the former secretary of the Security Council of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Samvel Babayan.
                    According to him, after the destruction of the "Thors", four more complexes were sent to the combat zone.

                    In the first minutes of the war, units of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan destroyed 10 Osa air defense systems and one S-300 air defense system.

                        Yes. As in Syria, Iraq, Serbia, Libya, etc. Ground air defense is destroyed easily and first. Its significance is exaggerated. There are no examples in history when it defended someone from the aggression of a more technically advanced enemy. Even less, everyone remembers the punctures of the Israeli and American air defense / missile defense.
                        You proceed from the fact that there is some kind of air defense that is capable of protecting against air threats, but this statement comes from Soviet and Russian propaganda. There are no examples confirming this.

                        I argue that without advanced aviation, any air defense system will lose to those who have this aviation. Everyone forgets about the Turkish AWACS that hung at the borders day and night, F16s that were ready to shoot down the Su-30 (possibly shot down the Su-25), Israeli and Turkish-made electronic warfare systems, including UAVs, guided air-to-ground missiles with Azerskih Su-25.
                        The Armenians lost "air", the ground troops were at the proper level, but they were powerless against air superiority.

                        And then, after the NKR ground troops knocked them out of the prepared lines, they were confused and didn't really know what to do.
                        Armenia did not have money for proper maintenance and training of the army.
                        In addition, Pashinyan dispersed all the "corrupt generals" of Karabakh.
                        And Azerbaijan had money. And they were effectively disposed of.

    An "expert" from South America makes a profound conclusion on the example of a small armed conflict about the unnecessary need for aviation, which requires huge financial costs. All on UAVs and planes on the side. And those who do not have money for their aircraft will they have enough for modern drones? Tomorrow an "expert" from Africa will declare that why keep a costly army when you can use local armed tribes is not clear what. The whole problem lies not in aviation and drones, but in the "experts" themselves, who know little about military affairs.

    Lying. They are trained and professional. The armies of Karabakh and Armenia are de facto united. They are part of the unified air defense of Russia. Trained in Russia and by Russian specialists. A large number of joint exercises were conducted, the last one a couple of months before the war. I remind S300 and Torah this is the air defense of the Republic of Armenia. At least 10 Thors fought in Karabakh.

    Planned exercises of the joint air defense system of Russia and Armenia started in Armenia today.

    The main task: to study methods of countering reconnaissance and strike UAVs.
    Press Secretary of the Armenian Defense Ministry Shushan Stepanyan reported this on his Facebook page.

      If by a large-scale war you mean a war between Turkey and Armenia, then yes, it is unambiguous, but in the Azerbaijan-Armenia variant, let's be honest with ourselves, it is extremely doubtful about a victorious war, because everyone perfectly understands who is behind the victory in Karabakh

    If both belligerent sides possess drones, then the Azerbaijanis will no longer have such an advantage as it was in Karabakh. Now all countries will catch up and make / buy themselves shock drones. And then the role of countermeasures against drones will increase, which can give an advantage to those who have such means.

    funny expert opinion from Honduras or where about there. And nothing that the same Armenia practically did not have any military aviation or detection systems. It is surprising that the countries that are really the main locomotive in the creation of drones (i.e., not a screwdriver assembly from imported components like Turkey, namely the creation of all components from A to Z, the USA, Israel ...) focus on classical aviation and not for drones. But what is there to discuss, the same Turkey constantly violating the air borders of neighboring Greece, for example, uses 99% of classic military aviation and not drones, as it perfectly understands that for the enemy having modern air defense and modern fighters - drones are just easy prey for a snack ... So not everything is so simple at the moment

      Well, as you know, after the suppression of air defense, it was rational to use the BLPA shock. What do you think, why spend millions if all this can be done for tens of thousands .. Assault aircraft was used limitedly against concrete bunkers. We destroyed 250 kg with laser-guided land mines. But the helicopters worked constantly .. but only remotely .. the weapons system allowed to destroy targets 20-30 km from the combat zone
