Because Az fought Karabagh, and not Armenia.
You’re wrong. Armenia fired ballistic missiles from within Armenia on major Azerbaijani cities (including Baku!). Armenian Su-25 conducted raids on Azerbaijani forces in Karabakh

Right, but "only" very few attacks. It was not a full out war. And AFAIK, Az doesnt striked back.

I remember an interview with an Azerbaijani commander who reflected on the second Qarabag war and he said that one of our army's weak points and where the vast majority of our losses came from (especially early on) is Armenian artillery. So here's hoping that our army has remedied that weakness.

As for India, Azerbaijan's government has been trying to establish good relations there to neutralize Armenian influence though given how close we are to Turkey and Pakistan, this is proving a bit difficult because of preexisting geopolitical obstacles.

Azerbaijan absolutely fought Armenia. There was mass recruitment/conscription in Armenia and weapons transfer at the time of the war to send them into Qarabag and they were firing artillery from Armenian territory into Azerbaijan. While Azerbaijan was "officially" at war with the separatists, said separatist government has been essentially part of the Armenia for decades, including having members of parliament freely moving between the two. The reason Armenia "officially" maintained that the Qarabag separatists are their own entity is for international PR, their goal was always full annexation but they saw how people reacted to Serbia outright trying to grab territory during the Yugoslav Wars and decided to mask their land grab with talk of "independence" for Qarabag.

Didnt Azerbaijanis once try blitzkrieg tactics. Especially with soldiers and tanks trying to smash Armenian lines but came at a cost which led to a rethinking on how to fight.

Azerbaijanis adapted to their loses and tried things differently. This was a turning point as Soviet tactics like in the past would work but not in a 21st century modern warfare.

Honestly the stand out for me is how Azerbaijani special forces infiltrated Susa with 44 to 100 men in the fog without any air cover or drones.

Susa loss to Armenia was actually so demoralising the Armenians saw Susa as a fortress no way the Azerbaijanis would able to penetrate. But the Azerbaijanis basically climbed the cliffs to the Armenians this was seen as impossible.

Armenia declared full mobilization on first day of the war. This is done when a country is at war, right?


The vast majority of casualties was also from Armenia itself.

Btw, Azerbaijan did strike some targets within Armenia. I don’t know how many, but there are examples. For example targeting of Scud launchers with HAROP loitering munitions (there is footage).

Actually the Armenian policy of Creating 'Arstakh"was an exact copy of Serbian extremist policy of multiple states in the 90s

Serbia created two unrecognized states of Repulika Srpska & Republika of Srpska Krajina to mask the fact that there forces were involved in occupied Bosnia & Croatia respectivley.

There is a reason why there is not full scale firing from Armenians in Karabakh anymore.

And thats because what was left of the Armenian Army retreated back into Armenia proper after their defeat in 2020.

There is still 10.000 armenian personnel in Karabakh with tanks, artillery, air defence systems and electronic warfare systems. They are currently rebuilding positions and manpower. Soon they'll attempt a round 2.

If round 2 does happen, then Azerbaijan and Turkey will finally be connected after all, Russia is in no shape to interfere in the South Caucasus and not even Iran is stupid enough to start a fight with Azerbaijan when 20 per cent of its population is Azeri.

A lot of people forgot that the deadline for russian peacekeepers to leave karabakh is 2025 which means only 2 years left; by then azerbaijan will demand the return of the remaining territory occupied by armenia

For once, peacekeepers can be to the benefit of Azerbaijan. If an escalation happens with Armenia within the next two years, peacekeepers could keep the Karabakh armenians out of the conflict. Thus, Azerbaijan can avoid a two front conflict and focus on Armenia.

Knowing the corrupt and evil russian mindset, they will have always intended that those peace keepers never leave and gradually expand outwards. It will be interesting to see what excuses, tricks or games they play to maintain their presence.

Peace is lost. Armenia is to blame.

Military shipments from Turkiye and Israel to Azerbaijan have picked up significantly in the past few days.

Azerbaijan should completely crush them without any mercy.

Armenians will never drop their wet dreams of a Greater Armenia.

Turkiye, Georgia and Azerbaijan will be the biggest winners. While Russia and Iran will be licking their wounds.

If this is a military transport, there seems to be some urgency for Azerbaijan as the equipment could easily have been shipped from Kazakhstan.
