The Ministry of Defense of Armenia announced on October 22 that a Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 combat drown had been shot down over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The ministry released a video and several photos of the drone, which was apparently armed with several MAM-L laser-guided munitions. The photos are yet to be verified.

Armenian Forces claimed to shot down a number of Bayraktar TB2 drones over Nagorno-Karabakh since September 27.
Highly likely, the Armenian side used the photos of the drones that were shot down on October 20 to claim a new shot. The area of two alleged accidents is the same.
Earlier the Armenian side already repeatedly showed same vestiges of An-2 to claim multiple aircraft shot down.
Azerbaijan purchased an unknown number of Bayraktar TB2 combat drones from Turkey’s Baykar in June. The drones have been used to attack Armenian personnel and equipment in Nagorno-Karabakh with great success.
Armenian forces are certainly using one of their more advanced air-defense systems, like the S-300PM, the Buk-M1 or the Tor-M2KM.
If Armenian forces manage to neutralize the threat of Azerbaijan’s combat drones, the tide of Nagorno-Karabakh battle may shift dramatically.
