  1. 15x Dana M1 SpH in action. This is funny. Some small successes of NKR troops (if it's not an old footage). BMP-2 and BTR-82A captured.
  2. Iranian AD shot down another Harop.
  3. Russian soldiers taking positions on the Armenia - NKR border. Bayraktar TB2 wreckage. Could be the one from which the gimball is.
  4. I can't help myself but especially the driveshafts look very thin to me. They probably know what they are doing but it doesn't bring much confidence by the simple look of it.
  5. I can't see much chances for Armenia to keep the NKR territory. They are clearly on the loosing side and it's not getting any better for them. These are totally devastating numbers. Azeri convoy hit by Armenian artillery. Looks like some trucks probably carried ammo. In other news another An-2 decoy wreck.
  6. The driver must feel really happy to have both exhaust tubes on his side. Just saying.
  7. Sure a lot of UAVs were shot down but that didn't stop them to change the situation on the ground in all Syria, Libya and Nagorno Karabakh. They are usually far cheaper than manned aircraft and expandable. If they are shot down it doesn't hurt the operator a lot, especially in terms of own population approval rate. I think that the main problem of detection is likely a work of EW units (Koral system possibly). Bayraktar TB2 has 12 meters wingspan. There is IMHO no reason why it shouldn't be normally detectable by the AD radars at a distance reasonably greater than its weapon range
  8. It's more complex IMHO. For example the most common Turkish UCAV, the Bayraktar TB2 can strike such system from outside of its envelope (it flies at roughly 7000 meters and its bombs have 8 km range). I don't think that any single system is an answer but a differently built layered defence than what is used today is necessary.
  9. A bit back to the UAV topic. I have a feeling that what we see now in NKR (and to some extent what we saw in Syria and Lybia) is something no air defence in the world is actually prepared for. The combination of heavy EW and oversaturation of the AD network with plenty of suicide drones and UCAV looks to me like a real game changer. Even the strongest air force is not an answer to this threat because it simply can not track and hunt every loitering munition. In this regard I think that way too many western countries are prepared even much worse than the eastern ones wh
  10. The impact of the Elbrus ballistic missile in Ganja on aerial photos.
  11. Posted just because it's a rather uncommon vehicle.
  12. EDIT: Now I see it's indeed Elbrus TEL even with remains of the missile loaded. The angle of the vehicle confused me.
  13. So far all SAA T-34-85 I saw were wreck from the Six day war but this one looks like it's in working condition... and the tactical number
  14. The destruction of NKR 36D6 premumably by IAI Harop kamikaze UAS radar of S-300PS battery cought on CCTV. Azeri websites published two videos today of a capture and subsequent execution of two NKR/Armenian soldiers. I will not post that one. You can easily find them even though the original upload is already deleted.
  15. Yes, but the option with an AI commander is a sci-fi scenarion atm. First the development in AI and sensors isn't able of self commanding yet and won't be for for years to come. And the second thing and probably more important is the one that you simply can't give the AI the trigger. You can do that in a designated kill zone, i.e. for example in a defence perimeter of an ICBM base but not in the open where combatants and non-combatants mix in the weirdest possible combo and where everything you didn't think about during the design will certainly happen because such is life.
  16. If it's going to be used as unmanned, it will be commanded by someone sitting in the command post. IMHO we are very far from an UGV being able to command itself except or some very simple tasks such as drive along a given road.
  17. That was roughly one week ago but the video is new.
  18. Another Harop wreckage on Iranian soil. Probably downed by Iranian AD. Remains of Izraeli long range guided artillery rocket Extra on NKR territory (third post in that twitter thread, don't know why it shows all).
  19. Were those involved local Chechen FSB units or federal ones?
  20. Four objects falling from the sky nearly in the same time and on the same place. Looking like 1-2 An-2-based decoys and 2-3 UAV, most likely kamikaze ones.
  21. Divers in Poland started a five days long operation to defuse an unexploded Tallboy bomb. https://www.dw.com/en/polish-divers-to-defuse-wwii-earthquake-bomb-on-german-border/a-55238853
