A video from late 2020, filmed during the hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan, now being called the 2nd Karabakh War, shows a ranged tank battle between the two foes.

The footage appears to show an Azeri T-72 making accurate shots against an unidentified Artsakh Defense Army, also called Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army (NKR), main battle tank. The video is filmed from a fighting position that hosts an anti tank guided missile system (ATGM), but it is unclear why the fighting position is not assisting the friendly tank with the potent weapon.

The 2nd Karabakh War broke out in late 2020 when Azerbaijan entered into territory that is politically theirs, but was controlled by ethnic Armenian local governments. Azerbaijan's years of investments into advanced military hardware, including various unmanned aerial systems resulted in a short and brutal decisive victory over the Armenian military, which relied heavily on near-obsolete Cold War-era equipment and weaponry.

Germany could lose a drone war against Azerbaijan,
says think tank

Source


The German Institute for Defense and Strategic Studies (GDIS),
a think tank associated with the German Bundeswehr,
questioned whether Germany would have been able
to fare better than Armenia against Azerbaijan
in the Nagorno-Karabakh war.
The answer is quite shocking.

“To put it in a very radical way,
if the Bundeswehr had to fight against Azerbaijan in this specific conflict,
it would not have had much luck,”
answered Lieutenant Colonel Michael Karl,
an expert of the GIDS.
“With weapon systems that were used
such as combat drones and kamikaze drones,
we would not have been able to defend ourselves adequately.
The lack of army anti-aircraft defenses alone
would have been our undoing.”

“Unlike a rocket, where you enter target coordinates,
these types of drones pursue their target,”
explains Lieutenant Colonel Karl.
“For example, a swarm of such drones could be programmed
to attack a formation of battle tanks.”

German army has no hope to be honest.

During the cold war the Germans even developed their own vtol jets only to piss it all away.

Despite them being a economic and a engineering powerhouse. Germans developed the foundations of modern warfare late 19th century to the 20th century. Ever since the end of ww2 they have castrated themselves.

BTW we should congratulate Nikol Pashayev from Armenia for winning the parliamentary election yesterday and his party getting 71 out of 105 seats in the parliament.

After losing the war and Russia organizing all of their assets in the country to protest and get back all the power in Erevan... Pashinyan won a crushing victory. :D

TBH I don't know how it was possible after the defeat but apparently the elections were fair even though the voter turnout was like 50%... normal numbers for places where people are tired of the corruption and incapability of their politicians and they don' trust them.

From what I have read about the Opposition though... Pashinyan is an angel compared to them so with a hard core of 35% of people in the country that adore him he can easily get like 70% of seats in parliament.

Didnt the armenians get mad at pashinyan for stopping the war? Now they dont want it?
I believe that they said they must get all of karabakh back, if so then why dont they want war now?

Silent masses heavily outnumber the loud fanatics.
