Shown is the destroyed by Azerbaijan Armenian PTRK "Elbrus"


Social networks have circled images of the Elbrus OTRK destroyed by the Azerbaijani army, as well as the UKS 400 V-131 compressor station of the Armenian armed forces. Previously it was demonstrated video of the launch of the R-17 rocket OTRK 9K72 "Elbrus" - the most powerful weapon in the arsenal of the Armenian army.


The maximum range of the missile is 300 km, the throw weight is 990 kg, the accuracy is about 450 m. Based on the information for the past year, Yerevan had eight such missile launchers in service.

According to the Deputy Commander, Chief of Staff of the Azerbaijani Air Force Major General Ikram Aliyev, if the Armenian missile systems had not been destroyed last night, their missiles could have hit Baku - this could have happened if the OTRK were deployed in the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.

But, according to our data, in service with the combined-arms units in Nagorno-Karabakh this equipment no. She was part of the 71st missile regiment of Armenia

- noted the general.


Aliyev specified that on the night of Wednesday, October 14, the Azerbaijani armed forces attacked two Tochka-U missile launchers with an accurate missile strike, and in the morning - the Elbrus operational-tactical missile system.

It turns out that the Azerbaijanis destroyed military facilities located in Armenia, that is, on the territory of the CSTO country. Baku and Yerevan have been exchanging blows with each other for a long time, more and more heating up the already difficult situation in the region.

    It is funny to read the excuses of the patriots that we do not have shock UAVs and they say they are not needed.
    And we knock down strangers with Shells and electronic warfare.
    It's scary to imagine what would have happened if Georgia had UAVs in 2008?
    And so the losses were outrageous, in general they would disgrace the whole world.

      You, liberal, look at the result of the actions of these electronic warfare and armor at the base in Syria, just everything should be done wisely, including air defense. Where and when did they say that shock UAVs are not needed, only specifically - WHO and WHEN?

        Read any comments under the news about the successful use of UAVs by other countries. UAVs know how to do - Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, China, but for some reason Russia cannot. More precisely, he knows how, but the components are tight, we do not produce our own, NATO does not sell.
        And by conviction I am not a liberal at all, although leftist views are not alien to me.

          it is unclear why you came to the conclusion that Russia does not make shock UAVs, it is already doing, for example, Hunter, everything has its time, and the fact that Azerbaijan is successfully using Turkish ones against Armenia, it just means that there is no air defense in Artsakh as such and will not be can. Air defense is not only passive defense.

            To make a good UAV, high-resolution matrices are needed, which Russia does not produce (Armata stalled due to the refusal of the French to supply these matrices).
            Yes, and with ammunition for drummers, we are all sad. In China, in the 10th year, the first UAV appeared, and now they have 25 types in service. Iran in '14 planted an American with the help of electronic warfare, and now they are completing a copy of it (they already have strike UAVs with a payload of up to a ton). And because they need it, but we don't really see it.

              why do drones and tanks need French matrices?

                Then, why do domestic special forces and PMCs use imported sights and night vision devices? You can't make good optics without them.

                  The French are selling us cooled FPUs on MRT. There the refrigerator takes up the lion's share of the volume and weighs a lot. It is hardly reasonable to put such a thing on a drone, and even more so in a sight. But slightly less sensitive, but not requiring cooling bolometers, makes Astron. They have eq. noise, the temperature difference is one and a half times inferior to the photon ones, but for scopes and drones it is above the roof.

                    Why then do domestic specialists prefer imported sights and night vision devices to domestic ones?

        Everything is in the public domain - 64 dead, 250 wounded, 20 armored vehicles, 4 aircraft, 1 helicopter. This is when beating a small country with a dwarf army (29 thousand) in 5 days of war.
        The USA captured Panama 30 years ago and lost 20 people.

          You somehow modestly forgot to mention that Ukraine fought on the side of Georgia. All Russian aircraft in Georgia were shot down by the Ukrainian air defense, which in turn was destroyed by an airstrike of the new Su-34, after which they were launched into mass production. So there was not a small army there, only 300 of them were captured in serviceable tanks in Georgia, and the tanks were modernized by Israel as trophies.

      Georgia had UAVs, but Russia is not Armenia. Watch a video on YouTube about how a Georgian UAV ends its existence when it meets a MiG-29 of the Russian Air Force. One rocket and EVERYTHING, no UAV.

      In 10 years, the lag in microelectronics will become critical, and even small regional powers or terrorists will fight with robotic systems and inflict incomparable damage to the armies of the previous technological level (which will include Russia, because there is no chance to get modern technologies for the production of the latest electronics).

    Armenia has spent all the money on the Maidan and the American embassy, ​​but has not purchased any system like a cannon shell. Armenia is not our ally, it will not receive any help from the ODKB.

    Elbrus was destroyed by a missile with more power than Iskander. And Azerbaijan does not have them.
    Or destroyed Turkey or some third force.

    Russia has an agreement with Turkey. Therefore, they press Pashinyan together.

    Soldiers, children, women are dying, and the oligarchs are only interested in loot.

        In general, Elbrus is not supposed to stand still. The first commandment of OTRK is to quickly turn around and have time to hit the road after firing into a disguised shelter. Therefore, covering the OTRK battery with an enemy missile is only with the complete stupidity of the battery commander, who arranged a picnic in the open. But against a loitering UAV, yes, it is difficult to hide, and die quickly - on the way to the position.

    Elbrus accuracy +/- 450 m? - With such performance characteristics it would not even be worth launching. In fact, at the maximum range of 300 km, performance characteristics are not guaranteed, but at 250 km, the accuracy with a spread of no more than 50 m (if the topographic location is correctly made and the flight task is correctly entered). For a ballistic OTRK, this is quite decent, and its purpose is a stationary object.
