Armenian video of burning drone on ground. Interestingly some notes, with what looks like coordinates also found.

 

 

Coordinates are for areas in Syria and Turkey. Who would put notes with coordinates on a paper into UAV? Does not seem right.

Signature in last column reads "Elvin". No idea what it might mean. May be DGPS station.

 

Another drone(s)

Armenian volunteers

Armenians under 40 seem to be underrepresented.

 

The same was in Donbass (soviet generation much more likely to volunteer), but in case of Armenia it is worsened by youth leaving country to work in Russia or Europe.

AM tank firing from hull down position

 

 

Actually that hill is too steep for the T72 to shoot hull down so it has to go over it. Thats a well known problem with T72 series.

Thank you for the coverage.

What a strange conflict, lanscape,alphabet, and camouflage...

Armenian alphabet looks like alien alphabet from a scifi movie.

HAROP, very interesting. Loud as hell. Are they used in high value targets or vasted on random targets?

 

EDIT, Had 0 info on this, so had to read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Armenian%E2%80%93Azerbaijani_clashes

Look at Georgian alphabet also.

Georgians and especially Armenians are really ancient nations in the region, especially compared to Turkish-speaking ex-nomad newcomers. Soviet school textbooks on SU nations history used to start with Urartu as most ancient state on SU territory. But current Armenian alphabet was created only about 1600 years ago and exist now almost unchanged since (unlike, for example, Russian and Georgian, created by the way by the same Armenian monk)

Well, it is the price for compact low profile turret. Integral digging equipment of T-72 allow to address this problem if having some time to prepare position - as in this case, when Armenians use ditch near hill top to fire downhill.
