Azerbaijani air defense capabilities

Azerbaijani air defense system is equipped with systems and radars of various types, capable of inflicting losses on its enemy, covering strategic facilities not only on the territory of Azerbaijan but also far beyond the borders of the republic. The anti-aircraft complexes and systems of medium and long range are deployed around military and industrial centers, aiming to prevent aircraft and combat helicopters attacks. They also have anti-missile potential.

During the Soviet period, the air defense of Azerbaijani territory, or rather of its oil fields, was of great importance. That is why a large number of military air defense facilities were established there.

There are one anti-aircraft missile regiment, four anti-aircraft missile brigades and two radio engineering battalions in Azerbaijan. The Azerbaijani anti-aircraft missile units are trained in the 115-th training center near the Kurdamir airbase.

After the collapse of the USSR, С-75М2 / М3 medium-range complexes, low-altitude С-125М / М1, long-range S-200ВМ were in service with the Azerbaijani units in the Ayaty and Mingechaur regions.  Military medium-range air defense systems “Krug”, around 150 “Strela-2М” and “Strela-3”, 12 combat vehicles “Osa-AKM”, about 6 Strela air defense systems -10SV, and around 50 ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” were also inherited from the Soviet Army.

In 2012, Azerbaijan started purchasing of two C-300PMU-2 “Favorit” C-200 divisions from Russia, deployed in the western and eastern suburb of Baku. Two C-35ВМ anti-aircraft divisions of the long-range air defense system were spotted east of Baku. Azerbaijan also has in service at least one Russian-made division of the Buk M1-2 air defense system.

In 2011, Baku acquired the Belorussian-made T38 Stilet anti-aircraft missile systems. Two divisions of the Buk-MB air defense missile system were bought in Belarus. In 2014, Belarus also supplied 9 S-125 Pechora-2T surface-to-air missile system.

Baku was the first buyer of the land version of the Israeli long-range air defense system Barak 8. Azerbaijan reportedly ordered the Israeli-made SPYDER SR near-zone air defense system with the Iron Dome system.

More than a dozen of constantly deployed radar posts are in service with Azerbaijani military. R-18, n-19, n-37, n-40, 5N84A, 19ZH6, 22ZH6 altimeters and PRV-13, PRV-16-17, P-18, P-19, 5Н84А and 19Ж6. There are three 36D6-M radars and 80K6М radar in Azerbaijan supplied from Ukraine. Baku also bought Israeli-made mobile three-dimensional ELM-2288 AD-STAR and ELM-2106NG radars. The EL/M-2080 Green Pine early missile warning radar allegedly operates in Azerbaijan.

Baku is actively cooperating with Turkey and United States that are especially interested in data obtained by Azerbaijani radars on the Iranian, Russian borders and over the Caspian Sea.

Armenian and Nagorno-Karabakh air defense capabilities

The comparison of Armenian and Azerbaijani military forces proves the Azerbaijani advantage.

Air defense systems of different classes and types are in service with Armenian military: long-range air defense systems S-300PS, medium-range air defense systems Buk M1-2, short-range air defense systems “Tor-M2KM”, portable air defense systems (MANPADS) “Igla” and “Willow”. Some outdated air defense systems such as S-75, S-125, “Kub” and “Osa”, ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” and ZSU-23-2 are also present. Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Defense Army’s air defense units also proceed  air defense systems like: Osa-AKM and Strela-10, and numerous Igla MANPADS. The P-18, P-19 radars, and according to some sources at least one modern 36Д6 radar control the airspace over Nagorno-Karabakh.

The current escalation of a military conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh unveiled that the air defense systems deployed in Armenia are not effective enough against Azerbaijani UAVs. On the other hand, they pose a real threat to manned military aircraft.

If Azerbaijan strengthens its air defense forces with international supplies from various countries, Armenian systems are Soviet and Russian-made.

In December 2015, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his Armenian counterpart Seyran Ohanyan signed an agreement on the formation of a “United Air Defense System” in the Caucasus. According to this agreement, the Russian and Armenian established the unified leadership of air defense and airspace control facilities and real time exchange information.

In 2019, Armenia announced that it had acquired the Tor-M2MK air defense systems from Russia that were first demonstrated in 2013. In 2017 it was deployed by the Russian military.

It seems that in the on-going military conflict, the Armenian leadership has relied on a military partnership with Russia. However, Russian military that is stationed at the Gyumri and Erebuni bases carries out a defensive mission and has no obligation to protect the territories of disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

No Iron Dome?

rightiswrong rightiswrong

That’s for Israeli SS troops to protect them from children throwing stones at them.

you have been questioning yourself from right to wrong so much that became a nutcase. talking about Azerbaijan dude

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Then why did you mention an Israeli system then in the first place you slowmo muppet?

You don’t really understand the English language, do you Slowmo.

The article is talking about the air defense of both side, though mentions only the Russian made systems, though Azerbaijan also has Iron Dome. Maybe they are made to catch the stones as you mentioned, but they are still there and for a proper article needs to be mentioned. Did my comment go through your dumb skull now, Mr. WrongAllTheTime?:))))

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Take it up with SF, if they didn’t mention the system, then Azeri’s don’t have it you muppet.

Have you got that Randy Dude, now go play with some kids, like your Dad played with them.

That is why I wrote that comment, to take it up with SF. Then somehow you magically showed up with unrelated comments. Do yourself a favor and get lost. U r not smart enough for this conversation yet.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

So take it up with them you stupid 3skinned arsehole.

Do humanity a favour, kill yourself and your whore Mom.

I am taking it up. You wrote on my comment thread, not other way around. How dumb are you?:))))

rightiswrong rightiswrong

It’s not “your” comment thread you prick, it’s SF.

You Yids want to claim everything, without ever owning anything.

Galicia is still sanctioning you, and new Voldemort sanctions from Galicia coming as well. So no beach walks with you, but lets cuddle under the snowy nights

rightiswrong rightiswrong

It hasn’t snowed here for 2 years Randy Pube, dream a new one.

Stick to your goat, at least you can tie him up.

I will bring snow for you. well, technically for your tight cute tushy.

Sure you will, if you can steal just 200 more goats, you might be able to afford a bus to an airport.

i will steal 400goats for you. your tushy is priceless for me

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Here I am keeping you from your goat.

Bye bye now, wash yourself, for once in your life.

rightiswrong rightiswrong

When are you coming, and I don’t mean up your goats ass?

Half of Turkey has already promised to come over, but no sign of them.

I will come so hard, convulsions one after the other

rightiswrong rightiswrong

I don’t need to know what you are doing right now with your goat, though I wouldn’t blame him from convulsing with you stuck up his ass.

Your Moms ass never recovered from dropping you.

Fat slag.

I was caesareaned. But still will find you, i need you ass, and i will cum in it so hard

rightiswrong rightiswrong

You were shat out ffs.

Maybe you are Turkish, as they all threaten to call, but like the cowards you are, never do.

Iron Dome has never been sold abroad you dipshit.

Very interesting comparison. How dumb is shit?:)))

rightiswrong rightiswrong

You should know that, you live in it.

Any evidence of your stupid claim that Israel managed to sell Iron Dome?

Of course not, you lying prick.

Oh you want declassification of information on Israeli weapons sales? good luck with that:))))

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Just you to prove that you know what you are talking about, but obviously you are a clown who just post BS without any knowledge at all.

your sentence doesn’t make any sense. care to edit or write again?

rightiswrong rightiswrong

Go ahead.

No difference, you never make sense. It’s because you’re a clown.

rightiswrong rightiswrong



you shouldn’t drink so early in the morning

rightiswrong rightiswrong

You shouldn’t drink at all, you desert people should stick to water.

we will drink together, lets do it

rightiswrong rightiswrong

I don’t drink with goatsuckers, and you wouldn’t know what beer tastes like.

The desert people drink the piss from the skins they cut. Real men keep their skins, and drink beer.

beer tastes like piss, just colder. hot in the desert though. come on lets share a pitcher together. though im sure you prefer a holy water

rightiswrong rightiswrong

That’s what your Dad told you it was, beer.

He was just getting you pissed, before riding you.

Is your ass still sore, though by now you are well used to it.

i am indeed used to it. it was amazing, i will show you the same pleasure. come to papa, i will fly you to the moon

rightiswrong rightiswrong

You can’t fly to the moon you schmuck.

You need a Russian rocket. Like your buddies in Idlib get often.

tell me about your russian rocket, is it long? is it hard? is it thick? lets fly together

What the hell is this? Are you trying to spam? Find another place for this!

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Tajikstan, Serbia and Belarus (CSTO members) could form an ideal observer and peacekeeping force for the conflict so that both warring parties (Armenia and Azerbaijan) can gather their thoughts and resolve matters.


This war has a tendency to spillover and escalate to parts unknown. A sad tale for all humankind to ponder upon in the coming decades…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
