Destruction of a large Israeli drone in the sky over Armenia is shown


On July 14, the Armenian Defense Ministry showed video footage of the destruction by the country's air defense forces of the Azerbaijani Hermes 900 aircraft made in Israel. According to the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia, the UAV carried out tasks on the combat operations control system.


The video shows how the drone approaches the positions of the Armenian army, but then it is shot down by ground-based air defense systems. A successful attack is accompanied by the cheers of the soldiers.


According to experts, the tactical reconnaissance UAV is one of the most powerful combat vehicles in its class. Hermes 900 was developed by the Israeli company Elbit Systems. It has a modular design, which makes it possible, if necessary, to change the main components of the drone. Flight altitude - about 9 thousand meters. The drone can be equipped with strike weapons, and the maximum take-off weight reaches one ton.

Israel is the main supplier of such devices for the Azerbaijani army. Baku successfully established a militarytechnical cooperation with foreign partners - UAV enterprises using Israeli technology operate in Azerbaijan.

    Obviously fake. Every local "expert" in aviation knows that a drone differs from an attack aircraft in that it cannot be shot down. Nothing, that's all. Especially the Shell, they generally can not.

      Did they tell you this in Ukraine? It is an air apparatus and goes astray just like any other.

      You are absolutely right, the fake is 100%. First they show a drone flying at low altitude, and then a flash is far in the sky, and the shooting is obviously not a professional camera, i.e. which can give a big increase, but rather, by phone.

      Maybe they just didn’t know what was impossible?

      ... the drone differs from the attack aircraft in that it cannot be shot down. Nothing, that's all. Especially the Shell, they generally can not.

      The Americans also boasted that their "invisibility", except from a slowly controlled anti-aircraft gun, also had nothing to bring down - however, near Belgrade, the commander of the division of the Soviet complex S-125, operating "on the wrong" frequency, did not even know about it! ..

        This was an isolated case, and no one really knows how he was shot down by the "division of the Soviet S-125 complex" - this is from the words of the Russian press, although it was immediately announced that he was shot down from MANPADS.

          Syoma, single, because they immediately removed them, so as not to disgrace. Shot down from the S-125, the Serbs themselves say. Yes, there is nothing surprising, the Serbs know how to fight, unlike the Arabs.

      This is for you, the strategist of the sofa, so they wrote in the training manual? Such a hefty canoe can bring down any more or less modern air defense, including the Shell. It does not matter who created this canoe, Jews or Americans. And if they were invulnerable, then such delivery vehicles as missiles, and even hypersonic, could not be created ... only spend money. :)))

    Between Christians and Muslims, Israel prefers Shiite Muslims, who are the majority in Azerbaijan. Money doesn't smell?

      What does “give preference” mean? Did Armenia want to buy something?

      Very correct remark. yes I was recently told here that Russia in the Middle East is putting the wrong horse, it seems that Israel is doing the same with the choice of a donkey in the Caucasus. Just a business, it doesn’t matter to whom and why.

      Why do you translate arrows at once? Azerbaijan is a secular state, not Afghanistan. Secondly, something did not prevent “Christian” Armenia from filling its tanks with fuel from Shiite Iran, and from Iran delivering food to its military in Karabakh and Armenia at the height of the Karabakh war. The Armenians themselves admit that in fact supplies from Iran of fuel for the army, food and gas for the population of starving Armenia saved the Armenians in the 90s. Where is the religious factor?

      Perhaps it will be more correct - developed in Israel, assembled from supplied components in Azerbaijan. As I understand it, the assembly is in place.

    Armenia is a poor country, and Azerbaijan is a solvent buyer. Israel and Azerbaijan have traditionally been friendly relations and cooperation has been established in all areas.
    For reference. Relations between Azerbaijanis and Jews have always been wonderful. And Armenia, according to the Anti-Defamation League, ranks third in Europe in anti-Semitism.

      And what place do Jews occupy, in the eyes of all mankind, with their ideas of superiority and exclusivity over other people, even some Jews, as they are contemptuously called "dry branches", Galut. The main anti-Semites are the Jews of the Khazars, they spread rot Semites - the Palestinian Arabs.

    This is not possible in the country of frightened pan-pan-headed maydaunas. All over the world, drones simply shoot down one or two.

    Bill was shot down by the OSA air defense system, modernized by Armenian specialists.

    Do not extrapolate the situation to the choice between Muslims and Christians. Everything is much more complicated. At one time, Israel chose the Turks between the Greeks and Turks, and the main reason here was the historical anti-Semitism of the Greek Orthodox and the quite tolerant attitude towards Jews by the imperial-minded Muslim Turks. Today's situation has brought Israel and Greece closer together and destroyed Israel’s alliance with Turkey.
    Jews have historically good relations with Azerbaijan, and here Iran also stimulated the alliance of Baku with Jerusalem, and the war with Armenia required a supplier of weapons comparable to the Russian one.
    There are Christian countries that conduct not only anti-Israeli policies, but even frankly anti-Semitic ones; there are Muslim countries that are quite friendly to Israel. In general, Israel is still part of the Christian-Jewish Western civilization and is oriented towards an alliance with Christians (although religiously, Judaism is clearly closer to Islam).

    All devices calmly go astray, if desired even satellites. To prevent the apparatus from being knocked down, it is necessary to create strong electromagnetic interference in order to blind the radar and simply disable it, but on all the planes in the world there is no such power plant that would be more powerful than the ground-based air reconnaissance station. There was a case when a UFO flew over the radar, then just the entire radar sat down. When studying the case, they came to the conclusion that on board a UFO, a very powerful and, most importantly, compact source of energy, is many times more powerful than a ground-based radar. Until such technology appears in people, all airplanes will glow on the radar like Ilyich’s lamp and, accordingly, go astray.

    Well, it's a special case with drones ... Of course, it is possible to shoot it down, but most often it comes down to the question: "Why?" The fact is that the UAV rarely flies up to the distance of the availability of anti-aircraft artillery and MANPADS, and shooting it down with S-300 systems is like hitting sparrows with cannons, it will be more expensive for itself. Its significance is not such as to waste S-300 missiles. It may be said that the cheaper S-125, S-200, etc. can be used, but I suspect that these systems are too outdated to detect and shoot down such small objects. They were created about 50 years ago and are designed for normal sized aircraft. There were no UAVs in the project then. And large reconnaissance UAVs usually fly at a distance of hundreds of miles and even the S-300 will not be able to shoot them down. Therefore, UAVs now have advantages on the battlefield. Especially small ones. They are cheap, they can be stamped in thousands of conveyor belts, but you can't get enough of them with "Armor" and the S-200. All territories cannot be covered from hundreds of drones in the sky. Yes, and you can spend 20-30 drones to smash one "Shell", and that will be profitable ... "Shell" will be more expensive. Therefore, the Turks crushed the Russians in Idlib. Not because Russia did not have the strength to stop them, but simply the costs would be incomparable ... S-400 and Armor against a flock of "mosquitoes". Nowadays, cheap anti-UAV weapons, electronic guns, lasers are being developed, but so far UAVs have advantages precisely because of their small size, quantity and low cost.
