Armenia is going to upgrade it's T-72 fleet. The work has already started. The new variant will be known as T-72B4, and will be comparable to the one used by Russia in this year's tank biathlon.

According to president Ilham Aliyev, Azerbaijani-Israeli arms deals stands at $5 billion for the last few years. Azerbaijan has spent the same amount on purchase of Russian arms as well (since 2010).

 

"Also we actively cooperate in the area of defense industries and this cooperation lasts already for many years. Ill just bring you one figure to illustrate how broad this cooperation is. So far the contracts between Azerbaijani and Israeli companies with respect to purchasing defense equipment has been close to five billion dollars. More precisely, 4,850,000,000 dollars. The biggest part of these contracts has already been executed and still we continue to work on that. And we are very satisfied with the level of this cooperation."

Btw, Azerbaijan will increase the defence spending for 2017. About $800 million will be spent on modernization & arms purchases.

From Nov 14, 2016 united army group was created by Armenia and Russia (the same type of agreement that exist between Russia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia), so seems like now all this arms deals are waste of money.

What does that mean Roman, is Russia now guaranteeing that it will fight with Armenia if it comes to another war?

It was in theory guaranteed long ago (as Armenia is member of ODKB) but it is additional measure.

This also confirms Azerbaijan's purchase of long range Green Pine radars. Barak-8 is part of a 2012 contract with IAI, which was also said to include 2 Green Pine radars alongside a "missile defence system" (Barak-8).

Armenia officials declared Azeri diversion group attempted to cross Armenia border today early morning. According to Armeian MoD press-secretary, three Armenian servicemen are KIA, now there is battle going on with use of sniper rifles and RPGs. (as far as I understand it is Armeina proper, not Karabakh). In return, Azeri MoD spokesman reported 39 cases of Armeinans violating ceasefire in last 24 hours. https://www.bfm.ru/news/342777

How can you see the supposed transporter-loader vehicle in that footage? You should perhaps watch the footage first. It's nothing more than a pathetic attempt at "saving face".

I am just translating from Russian translation from Armenian of Armenian claims. What was in fact hidden behind camouflage nets – nobody know. I only see accurate hits to something like communication vehicles and something under net.

Even most Armenians aren't convinced of that footage, that should tell something.

It is quite normal since “most Armenians” are just internet users sitting in front of their computers in houses and offices around the globe, not with observation devices on hilltops of Karabakh – so all they see is what is visible in this video. Only few dozens of people do know what was (or was not) hit, so it is everyone’s personal choice to believe it or not.

That made no sense. This "retaliation" video they recorded and shared had only one purpose after all, to "avenge" the Osa incident in the eyes of their population. Yet nothing significant is seen.

 

Also mortar, artillery fire happens frequently on both sides.

I can’t comment on purpose of this video etc. – it is up to people who were recording it. As for me it is just regular UAV-directed mortar strike, videos like this are coming in number from pro-Ukrainians in Donbass, and it is quite usual for them to be unclear – still, it can’t prevent cheering from pro-Ukrainians and their Western supporters. As positions bombarded have no traces of previous strikes, it is quite possible this particular strike was “in revenge”, but again – there is no way to know for sure.

"According to Maariv, the two Israeli operators of the craft refused to hit the Armenian position, and after remaining firm in their refusal even after threats directed against them, senior representatives of the company armed and operated the unmanned aircraft themselves".
