Armenia-Azerbaijan

FYI, this was one of the Army's wargame scenarios a few years ago.
I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. Who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.

The way small countries like Armenia and Azerbaijan are used like bargaining chips and for testing the 'powers' of the big-brothers (Russia vs Turkey vs other ex-Turkey NATO members) is simply disgusting...

It’s like a game of chess but instead of a game board, it’s in a small country.

I just hope Biden wins election and one of these two countries can hire Biden’s 21 year old nephew, who just graduated Devry technical school, for a multi-million dollar a year job so we can finally know which side to pick. Just hope that little prick kicks back 50% to pop-pop.

Azerbaijan used its drone fleet — purchased from Israel and Turkey — to stalk and destroy Armenia’s weapons systems in Nagorno-Karabakh, shattering its defenses and enabling a swift advance. Armenia found that air defense systems in Nagorno-Karabakh, many of them older Soviet systems, were impossible to defend against drone attacks, and losses quickly piled up.

Franz-Stefan Gady, a research fellow on the future of conflict at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, said traditional military equipment such as tanks and armored vehicles will not become obsolete.

But Nagorno-Karabakh has shown “the ever-increasing importance” of using armed drones along with other weapons and highly trained ground forces, and “the exponentially more devastating consequences of failing to do so in future wars,” he said.
. . .
“There were massive losses,” de Waal said. “Possibly around a third of Armenian tanks have been destroyed. That’s obviously been a critical factor in taking all those territories.”
. . .
Malcolm Davis, a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, wrote on the RealClearDefense website that systems such as the kamikaze drone probably will become more prevalent as technology improves and costs go down.

“That’s a potential game-changer for land warfare,” he wrote.
