The parade was dedicated to the 20 anniversary of the independence of the republic. In particular, they demonstrated C-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, Grad multiple rocket launchers, and Tochka-U tactical missile systems, the presence of which the Armenian armed forces had not previously attempted to advertise. Most of the heavy weapons are represented by Soviet or Russian models. The main striking force of the Land Forces of Armenia is T-72B tanks. They, like the infantry fighting vehicles BMP-2, were transported on conveyors to save asphalt. Very interesting camouflage combat vehicles. It is a very specific kind of fashionable now "numbers".
