Azerbaijani Military Destroyed Armenian S-125 Air-Defense System With Loitering Munition (Video)

Support SouthFront

The Azerbaijani military has destroyed the fire control radar of an Armenian S-125 “Pechora” short-range air-defense system.

On October 22, the Caliber AZ channel on YouTube shared a video showing a loitering munition targeting the SNR-125 “Low Blow” radar. The targeted system was allegedly located within the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The SNR-125, the heart of the S-125 system, is a 250 kW I/D-band tracking, fire control and guidance radar with a range of 40 to 80 km.

The Armenian Air Defense Force operates a number of S-125 systems, some of which were upgraded to the Pechora-M and 2M standers. The one attacked by the Azerbaijani military appeared to be a basic soviet version. LINK

The S-125 radar was likely struck with an Israeli-made IAI Harop loitering munition, which was equipped with an anti-radar homing system and an optical sensor. Its munition range is up to 1,000 km.

The Azerbaijani military has so far destroyed dozens of Armenian air-defense systems, including radars and launchers of a S-300 system.

Interestingly 2weeks ago an Azeri S-125 successfully defeated Armenian drones.
Only proves the fact Armenian leadership is deliberately sabotaging Armenian air defense.

swedish_viking

How did you reach that conclusion?

Lone Ranger

Logic.

Random Dude

He doesn’t want to admit the technological superiority of NATO technology over Soviet/Russian. Even through there is like 40-50 years between those weapons. So this becomes the only explanation from his point of view.

NITRAM28

he does make a valid point the S-125 in azzeri use shot down a far smaller drone then the TB2 it just seems the Armenians are bad at air defence (tho they seem to compensate by beeing better infantrymen).

Random Dude

Air defense was taken out by those small drones, making way for TB2 to operate freely. Its the combination of Israeli Turkish strategies. Only possible by Azerbaijan as they operate both technologies.

Brother Ma Rumi for Sencer

That doesn’t make sense. The TB2 are meant to be the actual killer drones and the little ones were just surveillance drones,right?

Little ones are loitering munitions (suicide drones)

Brother Ma Rumi for Sencer

Thanks.Suicide drone? Like a kamikaze Japanese pilot killing himself and crashing the plane as well ?

So the whole drone is sacrificed with its warhead ,crashing into the tank? Or just releases its warhead and then flies away if it can?

The whole drone is ramming the target to give speed, and the warhead explodes on impact (for armoured targets), or before impact (for personnel targets. )

Brother Ma Rumi for Sencer

Thank you.

The Pashinyan regime is trying to lose the war. It’s been obvious for some time now.

Brother Ma Rumi for Sencer

It tells me that the children and grandchildren of the original Armenian liberators of Artsakh are not as smart as the latter. The liberators of Artsakh had served in the Russian army in Afghanistan so knew better strategy and tactics.

occupybacon

Sure, the politicians shot missiles, not the officers.

Lone Ranger

Indeed.
Following orders…

occupybacon

And you are sugesting the Armenian army are following orders to let themselves killed.

Lone Ranger

Wouldnt be a first.
It happened during Soviet-Finnish war.
And in Desert Storm in 1991.

occupybacon

BS

Lone Ranger

Truth hurts try to handle it.
Have a nice weekend Bacon.

occupybacon

Thanks, same for you. Don’t forget about your male tears diet.

Lone Ranger

Thanks.
I’m not worried, you are crying all day long…

occupybacon

In your mouth

Lone Ranger

Thats a lot of salt ..

occupybacon

Swallow it all.

Lone Ranger

I will use jars…

occupybacon

Just shut up and swallow.

Lone Ranger

You must hear that often from the CIA trolls visiting your Mom…

occupybacon

Swallow it all, little bitch.

Lone Ranger

Is that what your Mom told you when Pimpeo was visiting…?

occupybacon

Yeah, they said you was a good stable boy who sucks all horses dicks and finished them all.

Lone Ranger

Im glad you pleased Herr Pimpeo…
Thats all it matters…

occupybacon

Thanks to you, male tears drinker.

Servet Köseoğlu

Such a shame..S-125 is old like Grand-pa..Azerbaijan should respect to older…NO country for old men..xD

NITRAM28

the S-125 can shoot down these drones as well littearly a few days ago the azeris shot down a armenian drone in a similar class as this one. Armenians are just bad at airdefense.

Servet Köseoğlu

Sure…they have serious problems.. ı didnt claim anything..

Random Dude

Getting deeper and deeper. Im sure they already put the receiver for TB2. Pity that the satellite connection is still in trial and gotta build receivers every 150km for now.

Brother Ma Rumi for Sencer

What do you meam? Turks building satellite link for TB2?

yeap

Brother Ma Rumi for Sencer

Thank you ,Random.

Brother Ma Rumi for Sencer

Thank you, Murat

Guys these videos and claims must be judged on merit.

1) Far too many of these videos stop well short of a strike distance, no excuse for this as the Israeli drones camera footage is virtually to the point of strike.

2) Azeri forces claimed to have destroyed 250 Armenian tanks already. The problem is according to Global-Fire-Power Armenia only has 110 Tanks and that includes the ones in Armenia proper

They claimed to have destroyed 270 artillary pieces yet even if you include Towed artillary, Self propelled artillary, and rocket launching systems Armenia only has a total of 256 and that includes Armenia proper

Added to this is the Azeri claim of another 150 armoured vehicles
These numbers are number that would be expected to come out of the mouth of “Comical Ali” in the days of the Iraq invasion.

3) The Armenians are no better they’ve claimed 130 Drones 16 Helicopters and 17 planes and 430 Azerbajani armoured vehicles

*** Pure horseshit by both sides, let the dust settle guys before writing off an armoured vehicle especially tanks and canvass topped trucks and as for videos they’re easy to manipulate so wait for the wreckage.***

Excellent points. It’s the Infowar to influence public opinion and keep soldiers’ morale up.

John Smith

There appears to be several existing solutions to Loitering munition not being considered, 1. camouflaged netting capable of withstanding 30 – 40 kg falling from height and at speed. 2. Slat armour also known bar, cage and standoff armour, effective against RPG/ATGM.
