Azerbaijan, Armenia Exchange Exaggerated Losses Claims


Armenia and Azerbaijan continue to exchange exaggerated claims of each other’s losses in the ongoing battle in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

On October 7, the Ministry of Defense of Armenia released an infographic summarizing Azerbaijani forces’ losses in Nagorno-Karabakh as follows:

  • 127 drones;
  • 16 helicopters;
  • 17 warplanes;
  • 416 armored vehicles;
  • 4 BM-30 Smerch multiple rocket launchers;
  • 3754 causalities.

Recent videos from the battlefield in Nagorno-Karabakh confirms that Azerbaijani forces are sustaining heavy losses. Nevertheless, the Armenian MoD claims are without a doubt filled with exaggerations.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan quickly responded to Armenia’s claims by releasing an infographic of Armenian losses in Nagorno-Karabakh. The infographic summarized the losses as follows:

  • 250 battle tanks and amphibious combat vehicle;
  • 270 artillery and multiple rocket launchers;
  • 150 military vehicles;
  • 60 air-defense systems;
  • 11 command and control centers;
  • 8 armories;
  • 1 S-300 air-defense system.

The Azerbaijani infographic also appears to be filled with exaggeration, especially the claims regarding Armenia’s air-defense systems losses.

The battle in Nagorno-Karabakh, which broke out on September 27, has so far inflicted heavy losses on Armenian and Azerbaijani forces. Both sides, however, are yet to provide their real account.
