Azerbaijan is interested in the Russian coastal missile complex "Bal-E"

According to RIA "News", The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan interested in coastal missile system "Bal-E", send a request to his purchase of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC).

Azerbaijan's interest in products of the corporation "Tactical Missiles" has confirmed its general director Boris Obnosov. “We offer them almost the entire range of products, including the Bal-E coastal missile system,” he told the newspaper Kommersant, Noting that "in this system there is a demand in almost all countries with access to the sea." According to the head of the corporation, the presentation was held at the exhibition complex of military equipment and arms KADEX 2014 in Astana.

As noted by Kommersant, Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Alexander Fomin said that "negotiations will begin later", but we already know that the "Azerbaijani colleagues are counting on the acquisition of a division of the complex."

"Bal-E" is an export version of the coastal missile complex "Ball", which was put into service in the 2008 year. Its development was carried out by the specialists of the Moscow OJSC “Machine Building Design Bureau”. It includes self-propelled command centers of communication and control, self-propelled launchers of anti-ship missiles Kh-35E, as well as transport and handling machines. The main purpose of the complex - the protection of territorial waters, the protection of military bases, marine communications and infrastructure on the coast. The total ammunition of the complex is 64 missiles, and the range of destruction reaches 120 kilometers.

As the newspaper notes, Azerbaijan has long been interested in missile systems, which are able to cover the coastal areas of the Caspian Sea.

Can we hold rallies like the Russian invaders like in Armenia? in the Duma of Ukraine they promoted projects against AZERBAIJAN, or when you write about the fifth column about Kasparov you don’t remember which Azerbaijan always haunts, so be friends with Sarakashvili’s father, he says Armenin.

    Well, again, lit the srach! Azerbaijan quite rightly fears for its part of the Caspian shelf. It has a very strong neighbor from the south - Iran, which will not miss the opportunity to "bite off" a tidbit. And the common religion will not play any role here (there are enough examples). Russia has no claims to the Azerbaijani shelf, so in this respect we are more allies than opponents. And it is necessary to improve relations with neighbors. The more we turn to face them, the less likely we will see them .. ooo. As for the Karabakh conflict, this is purely a matter for Armenia and Azerbaijan. Of course, the conflict is not beneficial to anyone, including Russia. Our business is to try to bring both parties together through mediation in order to reach an agreement. But this is a long process (blood on both sides of the hands, this is not forgotten soon). If Russia conducts its foreign policy correctly on this very difficult issue, we may well preserve good relations with both Armenia and Azerbaijan. something like this.

    The USA has hinted very transparently to Azerbaijan that within the next 5-10 years, the Maidan may occur with the latter. If the leadership of Azerbaijan does not change the policy pursued by it (the leadership). And then someone claims that Azerbaijan is pursuing a pro-American policy. All this is strange. Complexes must be sold - ours will not buy, others will buy. Azerbaijan has exactly one enemy in the Caspian - Iran. How much Iran is an ally for Russia is a question. Yes, while a partner. And then? But Azerbaijan is not an enemy. The enemy will not arm their aircraft with the weapons of a potential enemy. Moreover, this is not a single transaction, but systematic work in a number of areas. Our countries are drawing closer together, which cannot but rejoice - the regime in Azerbaijan today is one of the most intelligible and adequate in relation to Russia in the entire post-Soviet space.

    If we consider only the naval component, then Azerbaijan has problems with Iran and Turkmenistan in the Caspian Sea. The blame, as always, is oil. Iran had already flexed its muscles in the early 00s when it pushed an Azerbaijani research vessel out of the South Caspian. Then Azerbaijan did not have any real leverage. In principle, anyway, I can’t believe that because of one ship you can start a war. But the fact that Azerbaijan was helpless at sea ten years ago says a lot. In the same way, several years ago, Turkmenistan did not allow reconnaissance in the Kapaz square (Sardar). Two years ago, Turkmenistan itself conducted geological exploration there using a Russian vessel. An increase in the naval component is currently taking place in the Caspian. Against whom will we be friends? I don’t know yet.

    If we consider the fact of the purchase of weapons, then Azerbaijan is spending a lot on weapons. It’s hard to say what the reason is. Either they are preparing for war, or there is nowhere to put money. Or preparation and the future. When the thunder strikes, it will be too late to be baptized.

    In economic terms, Azerbaijan is trying to pursue an independent policy. And therefore, it is a competitor to Russia. Here we will not have mutual understanding. But this is not a reason for war.

    Summarizing. Azerbaijan (like other Caspian countries) needs a naval component for the future. This is not good, as it means that all countries are preparing for a worsening situation.

      But in any case, with big questions, he will take into account the interests of gigemons, here is an example with Russia.
      .Rovnag Abdullaev signed a contract with Rosneft in the presence of Putin
      24 May 2014, 17: 31

      Rosneft and the State Oil Company of the Republic of Azerbaijan (SOCAR, SOCAR) have signed a joint venture agreement on oil and gas exploration and production projects in various jurisdictions, including Azerbaijan and Russia.
      That's why Uncle Morningstar got so nervous ..

        Bakht 26 May 2014 12: 37
        Quote: TURKISH

        Joint ventures are always good. But interests are still different. Azerbaijani gas (in the future, and Turkmen) are competitors to Russian. And both go to the south of Europe. Therefore, Putin’s visit last year was unsuccessful. It was not possible to agree on gas.

        Now (or rather several years) there is a powerful pressure on Azerbaijan in the dispute with Turkmenistan over the boundary line in the Caspian Sea. And it is America that presses. I suppose (I do not know exactly, but I suppose) that Baku will not sign under any onerous terms. One of such conditions (at the request of the States) is the transfer of the Kapaz (Sardar) field to Turkmenistan. So at sea it would be nice to have something against our "brothers" from the other side of the Caspian. That's the whole reason Morningstar got nervous. To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised by the speech of R. Mehdiyev. Translating from Azerbaijani into Churkin's language, Mehdiyev openly stated "If the ambassador fails something like this again, he will quickly fly out of the country."

        It was nice to read.

      Explanatory comment!
      In my opinion, of all the Caspian littoral states, Azerbaijan has the most problems with Turkmenistan, because of Kapaz! Naval armament as an argument in the territorial dispute, for the shelf, helps a lot))
      The pipe * (BTC) _ needs to be filled, and as far as I know, production has fallen, new offshore fields, roads * (great depth) And this is where the argument against Turkmenistan comes in handy))
      But there is no reason and cannot be used against Russia! Territorial disputes overland have been resolved, there are no problems over the sea either! Some are trying to Karabakh here
      to drag)))
      The Karabakh problem is generally on the other hand, and this is not a sea grater))

      Because business, for the sake of money, capitalists are capable of anything. The division planned for purchase is capable of bringing the entire Caspian flotilla to zero. In addition, it can be transferred to Georgia under one pretext or another and limit the fleet in the Black Sea. Then they will be surprised, oh how could this happen, no one expected. Everything was not so obvious and no one violated any contracts, we did not know what would happen. True, the capitalists shipbuilders will also be pleased, the destroyed flotilla is new orders.

      There is nothing complicated here. To be friends (allies) we must have common interests. I do not believe in the longing of Russia to seize Azerbaijan. Rather, Russia needs calm on the southern borders. Azerbaijan provides it. While provides. But not infinitely.

      What does Azerbaijan need? Our problem is Karabakh. We need Moscow’s assistance in returning 6 or 7 OCCUPIED areas of Azerbaijan. This is not Nagorno-Karabakh. This is plain Karabakh, which has nothing to do with Karabakh itself. These areas must be returned without fail. Otherwise, sooner or later, the war will begin anyway. And there will be no peace

      That is our whole interest. Moscow agrees to such conditions - we will be friends. No - we’ll definitely not be allies. For now, we will have armed neutrality.

      PS It has nothing to do with the topic of naval weapons.

    Well, what else remains for the Azerbaijani Navy, which is one of the weakest in the Caspian (NO ONE ship with missile weapons), except for the acquisition of coastal SCRCs, so far only the Kazakh Navy is weaker, and even the latter plans to purchase six small missile and artillery ships from Russia project 21632 "Tornado" (export version of MRK pr. 21631 "Buyan-M" with anti-ship missiles "Uran-E").

    True, for the sake of fairness, it should be noted that the main enemy of Azerbaijan in the region of Armenia does not have a fleet like that, but the question remains with Iran, about the division of the oil-bearing shelf of the Caspian, and there have already been cases when the ships of the Iranian Navy "ousted" Azerbaijani ships from disputed waters.
    The list of staff of the Navy of Azerbaijan:
    The flagship of the Navy of the Republic of Azerbaijan is the Project 159A "Gusars" TFR (formerly "Bakinets").

    Overhauled in 2010 with the replacement of engines, navigation equipment and parts of weapons. It has no missile weapons. The photo was taken during the naval parade on Azerbaijan’s Independence Day in 2013. Photo taken

    patrol ship P-212 former radiation chemical reconnaissance ship of the 1388P project (KPX-1)
    boats of the project 205P-4 units, former ships of the Baku border brigade of the PSKR MCHPV KGB of the USSR. The ships of the 205 project were partially disarmed (removed by the TCA) and, after the transfer, continued border service but already as part of Azerbaijan’s BOHR.
    ship BOKHR "S-006"
    former RCA "R-173" of the KVF of the Soviet Navy, pr.205. Anti-ballistic missile containers were dismantled from the ship and included in the SOCHR.
    2 patrol ships of the 722 project, Polish construction
    patrol ship "R-223", a former patrol boat of the Turkish Navy was transferred to Azerbaijan.
    The Gabriel anti-ship missiles were purchased from Israel and the Uranus from Russia, but the construction of ships for them at the shipyards of the new shipyard in Baku is planned from 2015.

On the Caspian Sea near Iran: 1 "destroyer" of the Jamaran type - Velayat, rather a light frigate built on the basis of the Vosper Mk.5 project, launched on March 17 last year, armed with 2 "Merhab" air defense systems (a copy of the American RIM- 66 "Standard", 4 Iranian clones of the Chinese C-802 anti-ship missiles, in turn, a clone of the French "Exocett" with a firing range of 80-120 km, 76-mm AU Fajr 27 (copy of Oto-Melar), 2 20-mm " Erlikon "with manual guidance.

        Our project 11661 ICR "Tatarstan" and "Dagestan" and MRK pr. 21631 are capable of killing this ship, while the Dagestan and MRK pr. 21631 can be right in the port.

        The former Shah's yacht "Khamzekh", built in 1936 (!), Is armed with a 20-mm "Erlikon" and 2 anti-ship missiles S-802.
        Thus, the total missile salvo of the Iranian Navy in the Caspian is 14 anti-ship missiles.
        True, Iran now looks like the Caspian Sea has a diesel-electric submarine in mid-September at a shipyard in the city of Bender-Enzeli, located on the Caspian Sea, a submarine of the Fateh project was seen.

        Turkmen Navy:
        2 Project 12418 Molniya RCA are armed with 16 Kh-35 anti-ship missiles, transferred to the fleet in 2011.

        5 Turkish-built NTPB Project high-speed patrol boats. displacement 400 t., length 55,75 meters, 40-mm twin tower automatic artillery Oto Melara Twin Compact. Turkmenistan additionally ordered another 6 boats.

        1 American-made Point Jackson patrol boat.

        2 patrol boats "Sobol" - Russian-built, transferred in 2009
        1 landing craft, Russian-built, type unknown.
        Thus, even the Iranian Navy surpasses the Navy of Turkmenistan in a missile salvo: 32 X-35 against 14

    the heat affects many readers of the site, stupidly minus even without delving into the essence of the issue. the most interesting thing that interests me to whom Russia sold weapons and this country suddenly used our weapons against us. by and large, Azerbaijan of Russia is not the enemy of the enemy Azerbaijan is turned by many small-minded users of the site because of some personal petty insults. Now please explain what kind of inadequate idiotic reaction? The beginning of the working week affected or what other problem but on many branches instead of adequate reasoning and arguments of opponents are stupidly filled with cars of minuses. If you don’t like the information, argue why. But in a monkey you stupidly press buttons without thinking with your head is an ignoble thing. Lord couch warriors - be more adequate.

    as far as vision allows you to see here, for example, in the photo, the Bal-E is equipped with an X-35UE rocket with a range of 260 km already
    "Kh-35UE - the export version of the Kh-35U - unified. A new, half-size turbofan engine was used, the design of the air channel was changed, which made it possible to increase the fuel supply. These measures led to an increase in the maximum firing range of the rocket twice - to 260 km. The rocket was used a new combined guidance system, which includes, in addition to the previously used inertial and active radar homing systems, as well as satellite navigation. The modernized active-passive radar homing head "Gran-K" the basic version. "
    I don’t remember what is on the 2 lightnings handed over to Turkmenpasha in 2011 in my opinion is still the standard, but the Azerbaijanis know what to buy :)

    "Azerbaijan has long been interested in missile systems capable of covering the coastal regions of the Caspian." From whom to cover? From Russia? When will the idiocy of selling modern weapons to potential adversaries stop? And its immediate resale to real opponents!

    Azerbaijan in the Caspian is not a rival to Russia by any means. To realize this fact, it is enough to put on one’s eyes. The supply of weapons for hard currency is a buzz and good support to the military industry.

    Well, yes, something like that. Information for consideration.
    "Russia has completed delivery of a batch of 100 T-90S tanks to Azerbaijan."
    The entire batch has already been sent, completed about a month ago. In addition to the completed contract, there is an option to supply approximately the same amount of T-90S.
    The agreement on the supply of a batch of T-90S was signed by Moscow and Baku in 2011. Work continues on the Mi-171 and Mi-35 helicopters, we ship armored personnel carriers, small arms, mortars, howitzers.

    Recall, back in June last year, large deliveries of military equipment from Russia to Azerbaijan began. In addition to the T-90S tanks, it was a question of delivering about 100 BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles, 18 Msta-S self-propelled artillery pieces, 18 Smerch multiple launch rocket launchers, 18 Vienna self-propelled artillery pieces and 6 units of TOS-1A heavy flamethrower systems "Solntsepek" (a new modification of the Pinocchio system) .http: //

    How did these national doctors get it .... Yesterday, sly Kazakhs are preparing a blitzkrieg, today, evil Azerbaijanis want to advance to the Urals, and tomorrow what? The insidious Starks planned to regain the North. Residents of Murmansk have already seen on the streets of lute-wolves ...
    PS. I would have nailed everyone with my successful liberal fists.
