    What can I say? In principle, the information in order to give an assessment is rather small. Its purpose is not indicated. As far as I understood from the gadgets in the photo, the module is controlled from the inside. By what is stated, the unit is not quite bad.

        and so all aim at Karabakh in the near future? And the fact that in Armenia the Russian military base with the direct purpose of protecting Karabakh from the military claims of both parties, you omit? Or is there still confidence that we will maintain the status quo?) Do you see what the matter is, these are not idle questions, Tbilisi also did not immediately decide on a direct adventure, the conflict smoldered for a decade, and everyone knows the result .. I really hope that the neighbors (Armenia-Azerbaijan) will nevertheless find a compromise solution to this difficult situation and will cease to breed with each other. Still, the Turks should not be pulled into this epidemic, otherwise all these injections threaten to turn into a serious war, where the role of Azerbaijan is still uncertain and it is a pity if good-neighborliness is violated.

            I did not write that the Russian Federation will enter Azerbaijan. You correctly noted that the Russian base is present to protect the sovereignty of Armenia on the basis of allied relations and the fact that Armenia is a member of the CSTO.

            Our opinions, unfortunately, or fortunately, are not taken into account, the Foreign Ministries of the countries participating in the conflict are working on this, and the Russian Federation acts as an arbiter and dominion in geopolitics in this area of ​​the globe. I do not think that you will deny it.

            Join the CSTO, you will be happy. This is a purely geopolitical issue, our claims as the almamater of the USSR are not limited to the territory of the Russian Federation, and this is correct, in my opinion.

            Because Russia and Armenia are allies. No documents are needed for this. There is no commercial relationship between them as with Azerbaijan. Russia will not fight for Azerbaijan, but it will be for Armenia. Armenia is included in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) common air defense system (quote from Konstantin Sivkov, vice president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems.) In my opinion, an exhaustive answer. In general, the base is present more to maintain the geopolitical balance in my opinion, since Azerbaijan is very zealously attracting Turkey to the territorial dispute.

            Well, in general, I’ll tell you in words of Shoigu - wherever we want, we set it there, taking into account the CSTO treaty and allied relations with Armenia. Frankly, my position is conciliatory, since in the USSR we together were practically one country. It is not necessary to interpret my words as the fact that I or we are strictly confrontational in relation to Azerbaijan. Something like this.

      Even a snowcat is not capable of any long independent rise with a steepness of 60 degrees. Often in the characteristics of the technique, the value of the overcome rise of 30 degrees appears, but even at 30 degrees, only the equipment that is "sharpened" only for this can move continuously.

      Armenia also does not sit still. How much the economy allows as much and buy. Armenia, unlike Azerbaijan, does not sit in an oil puddle. These Marauders and Matadors in the Karabakh mountains will become mass graves.

        1. In addition to oil, Azerbaijan has gas, cotton, industry, agriculture, etc. But the most important thing is that with all neighbors (except you Armenians) they get along unlike Armenia
        2. Secondly, I do not think that you are Nastradamus and you can accurately predict the outcome of the 2nd Karabakh war (and it will be sooner or later)
        3. during the 1st Karabakh war there were high losses (from both sides) of personnel from mines and shelling during transportation (on old collective farm vehicles and carriages) Marador should solve this problem
        4. And as for the mass graves, this only time will show who and where and how.

    control of a 14,5 mm machine gun (KPVT?) can be done from the inside, but reloading? And the replacement of the barrel (those who know KPVT will understand), there is not even an armor shield! Any owner of a "combat donkey" from the PM can paralyze a combat unit. The scheme is automobile, bridges are installed, the suspension is spring, Maybe it will withstand 6 kg of TNT, but after the explosion it will definitely not go anywhere. And the hatches are ***! A mechanism to disperse African fighters for some rights.

      in order to prepare for war with the AR

      ..that is in addition-- Armenia wants to purchase self-propelled artillery mounts of the M-36 Jackson class of tank destroyers from Croatia.
      Armenia appealed to the Croatian government with a request to donate M-36 Jackson tank destroyers from World War II.
      For what purpose these installations will be used by the Armenian side, it is not known. The decision in this regard should be made by the Government of Croatia.
      Equipped with a 90 mm cannon, the M-36 has been widely used by the American army since 1944 in World War II and the Korean War. Subsequently, the army of the former Yugoslavia equipped this tracked vehicle with a 500 horsepower diesel engine removed from the T-55 tanks. During the civil war in Yugoslavia, the Croats used these machines.
      The crew of the 29-ton M-36 consists of 5 people.
      In addition to the gun, they are equipped with a machine gun.

      In place of Armenia, I would even buy these cars. At 0,5 EUR / kg. wassat

      This is something like a MRAP machine. This trend is now everywhere, this technique is very relevant in conflicts of "low intensity" - local and counter-guerrilla actions. The technique is useful - you can no longer just throw grenades and poke them out of small arms, like a regular truck or UAZ. In Russia, the Typhoons, Tigers, Wolves, and Bears are also being adopted. And it is right. This is not a battlefield vehicle, not an armored personnel carrier, therefore there is no special weaponry.

    Some kind of clumsy in my opinion! Armored personnel carriers should be squat. To make them less visible! And this tall, grenade launcher does not cost anything to get into it.

    Good armored car for transporting personnel. The purpose is mainly for explosives and border guards.

      and for the army it’s not bad. at least better than an armored personnel carrier .... and it protects against undermining ... bulletproof is better at times .... but here's the inside .....

    Well done Azerbaijanis are quietly arming themselves, unlike Armenia, which is waiting for Russia to plant something.

    Why is Azerbaijan arming itself at such a pace? He already surpasses the Armenian Armed Forces 2-3 times.

      We need a qualitative advantage, not a numerical one.

      It is not only a matter of Armenia, in the south of Iran, which is always trying to poke its nose and the north Caucasus is not very calm, just a conflict with Armenia accelerates the process of arming the army.

    Sorry, of course, but Azerbaijan and Iran are in different weight categories. So, all the same, Azerbaijan and Armenia. The superiority is both quantitative and qualitative. Armenia is not able to buy 4 billion evergreens from the Russian Federation. The freebie from the Russian Federation also ended in the 90s, so Russia is forced to maintain minimum parity. Otherwise, again through the sight at each other.

      Well, why do you think so? More than half of the Iranian army is ethnic Azerbaijanis)) Yes, and our Air Defense is much stronger than the Iranian. And the number is generally a relative thing.
      Of course, no one is going to fight with them, but you have to be ready for anything anyway.

    In the fall, there was a report about these machines in "Military Secret". The conclusion is something like this: this machine develops an amazing speed for its class, but it is not capable of fighting off roads. Due to the high center of gravity on bumps, the risk of overturning is too great. Personally, I got the impression that these cars are more for policemen than for military operations. But it should be borne in mind that everything depends on what tasks Azerbaijan defines for its army. Perhaps he needs just such machines. Azerbaijan already had the opportunity to choose and I don't think that the price was decisive in the choice.

    Well, the Armenians also do not sit back, and also purchase weapons from the latest Armenian acquisitions:
    4 Chinese MLRS WM-80: 8 barrels with firing range 34-80 km
    300-mm Chinese MLRS AR1A-analogue of the Azerbaijani "Smerch" with a firing range of 130 km
    19 Israeli mortar Soltam K-6
    Serbian large-caliber sniper rifles M-93 "Black Arrow"
    English sniper rifles Accuracy International AWM for special forces.
    Armenians are trying to produce their own weapons. For example, the N-2 MLRS for rocket-propelled grenades of the RPG-7 class, manufactured by the Armenian company Garniler.

      This is generally an analogue of the Soviet system tornado)) and secondly, the message is not found confirmation

      Well, this is generally a funny installation, 12 RPG connected in a bunch, which should be directly in front of the line to hit the target, in fact a one-time installation.
