Armenian Military Is Building Underground Fortifications To Hide From Azerbaijani Drones (Photos)

File image.

Armenia is addressing the threat posed by Azerbaijani combat drones and loitering munitions by building a network of underground fortifications.

On June 29, Armenian sources shared photos of an underground bunker being built by the Armenian military on the border with Azerbaijan in the Syunik region.

During the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war, which saw Azerbaijani forces capturing a large part of the disputed region, combat drones and loitering munitions inflicted heavy losses on Armenian forces.

Azerbaijan relied mianly on Turkish-made Bayrktar-TB2 combat drones and on Israeli-made IAI Harop and Elbit SkyStriker loitering munitions.

Dozens of strikes targeted Armenian troops taking shelters in trenches and open pits which provided little to no real protection against precision-guided weapons.

Armenia’s new underground fortifications will likely provide good protection against combat drones, which are armed with small-diameter projectiles, as well as against loitering munitions with light warheads.

Not picking sides here but the Azeri’s did not exactly get by without losses of their own.

True, the azeris did suffer massive losses (I think the numbers were the same as the armenians). Doesn’t mean they didn’t win though as many of their fighters were Syrian jihadis sent by Turkey as was proved by video footage. I think they used the Syrian jihadis on the front line to minimize casualties of their own ranks.

Air raid shelters isn’t anything new it’s been in use since the WW1.

None of you

I believe that if Turkey wouldn’t help Azerbaijan and wouldn’t bring in the Radical Muslim disgusting filthy terrorist .
Azerbaijan wouldn’t have a chance of winning

Russians should also start to do it in Syria and Libya ^^

Keep sniffing paint idiot, maybe one day you will actually create a coherent sentence.

Ever consider the IAF / USAF are hitting targets the Syrians want them to. All you see are satellite image of buildings that have been hit … no evidence that anything of value was inside them. Getting your enemy to strike empty buildings while gathering data on how they attack is right along the lines of Russian maskirovka.

And why not keep these shelters a secret??

Thats beyond tard level.
First they can hit the airbases from where the drones operate.
Second if they would actually turn on their SAMs they could take out the drones.
Armenian leadership is playing to inflict maximum damage combined with maximum cost on themselves.
Azeris are doing the exact opposite…
You can hate the Azeris as much as you want they arent lead by traitors, Armenia is.
Thats why Russia is neutral, they wont help traitors.
They are only doing the bare minimum to avoid a genocide.
