    On June 11, 2018, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev attended the opening ceremony, as it was stated, of the "N-th Military Unit of the Missile Forces of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan" (apparently, the missile brigade).

All cars of both complexes are made on the automobile chassis of the Belarusian production of types MAZ and MZKT.

    Barak 8ER anti-aircraft missile system launcher of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces

    At the parade in Baku on June 26, among other things, not only the conventional Barak-8 missile systems were launched, but also launchers for the Barak-8ER missiles with an elevated range of 150 km.

    There are very good pictures for comparing the launchers of both versions, it is clearly noticeable that the Barak-8ER launcher installed on the same chassis from the MZKT is much larger.

    Well, good for the italian industry (and for their suppliers)... i just don't understand why that and not the yak-130...

    By the way, there was a market share agreement between Alenia and Yakovlev, where Alenia wad able to Nato countries and Yakovlev to CIS countries and allies, but apparently it was only for 10 years...


    Edit: by the way, is it true that Russia refused to sell aircrafts to Azerbaijan?

    If not maybe they could start replacing fruits and vege3 imported from Azerbaijan with those from Iran

    There is more and more information that jihadists from Syria have been deployed to the borders of Armenia in support of Azerbaijan. The commander of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which is supported by Ankara, General Ziyad Haji Ubeid, announced that they had sent fighters to Azerbaijan. Ubeid said: “Due to poor economic conditions, the militants are forced to travel to a hot spot, Azerbaijan, to provide for their families. In such Syrian regions as Efren, Serekaniye and others, the economic situation is very deplorable, people cannot feed their families. Turkey provides economic support to over 70 thousand fighters. We are ready to fight anywhere in the national interest and for the security of Turkey. We protect our interests to achieve our goals. Soldiers are sent to fight in various places in order to protect common interests with Turkey and provide themselves with food. We must repay our debt to Turkey for the support it provides us. ”

    BTR-70 upgrade with 7.62mm and single 23mm cannon. I believe that there is also a 30mm cannon variant. For the Azerbaijan MT-LB upgrade see my posts on the MT-LB thread.

    Azerbaijani Armed Forces - Page 3 23mm_g10


    Azerbaijani Armed Forces - Page 3 Trend_10
    Azerbaijan and Turkey developed new anti-tank guided missile system based on the BRDM-2 vehicle. Mizrak-U or UMTAS (Uzun Menzilli Tanksavar Sistemi) is a long range air-to-surface and surface-to-surface anti-tank missile developed by Turkish armor and missile manufacturer Roketsan.
    The missile comes in two versions, one is the Turkish Antitank Missile – Long Range (TAM-LR – UMTAS), which is a long range anti-tank missile system primarily developed to operate from attack helicopter platforms; the other is the Laser – Turkish Antitank Missile – Long Range (L-TAM-LR – L-UMTAS). Both are equipped with state of the art technologies making it effective against all armoured threats of the modern battlefield.

    Tactical characteristics include, day-night and all-weather operational capability; fire-and-forget and fire-and-update operation modes; the capability of target update enables, fire behind mask, fire against targets hiding behind mask, accurate aim point adjustment, and damage assessment; tandem Warhead effective against all types of heavy armoured vehicles within 8km range; effective against stationary and moving targets; wide firing envelope allows off-boresight engagement; and insensitive munition characteristics against fuel fire and bullet impact.

    Roketsan’s MIZRAK-O, with its 4km maximum range and 200m minimum range, can function in all weather conditions, day and night. MIZRAK-O, which can be used in fire-and-forget and fire-and-update modes, with the elasticity provided by its target update capability, offers possibilities to fire in covered position, to fire at targets behind cover, to point precisely and to evaluate the effectiveness of the hit, can be used against fixed and moving targets.

    I like it. The 23mm is underrated. It has a powerful HE shell for its size. I wonder has anyone made an updated AP round for it?

    Turks are utilizing their natosphere connections to the full, but frankly I loathe the pan turkish nonsense that is quietly aided by the west to undermine the Caucasus. Also having to deal with turk posters with their inflated egos over their large RC planes is getting old.

    https://www.leonardo.com/en/press-release-detail/-/detail/08-06-2023-leonardo-contract-signed-for-c-27j-to-the-azerbaijan-air-force

    Azerbaijan will buy a certain (still unspecified) number of C-27J transport aircrafts.

    Well they could not buy russian aircrafts in this class even if they would have wanted it.

    After the new PDV-4000 engines will be available, I would like to see a new russian transport aircraft (or derivative/evolution of the il-112v) with similar characteristics (payload and cargo hold size) to the C-27J.

    Azerbaijan interested in buying J-17 from Pakistan. Although they have considered buying Mig-35 and Su-35 which are better aircraft but they believe the J-17 to be cheaper to maintain due being single engined.

    A bit disappointed in Azerbaijan buying M346 instead of Yak-130 although pretty much the same aircraft but when you consider buying Russian or Chinese aircraft surely buying a trainer that's more geared towards what you might buy in the future makes sense than a trainer that's geared for western aircraft.

    Azerbaijan's not planning to break with the West.

    They're even playing along with the Anglo-French 'good cop bad cop' routine in Karabakh, where the French are pretending to take Armenia's side and the British/Americans the side of Azerbaijan, ignoring the fact that it's really just the same bloc whose goal it is to take both countries into their orbit and away from Russia. In service of this Aliev has been making statements and giving the appearance of becoming angry with Macron. But he must know that in any event the same NATO will also provide security for Karabakh, or give a convincing impression of doing so, and that Azerbaijan will still not assume control of it. He's still ready to crawl up the West's ass though in preference of Russia/China.
