General: Armenian Iskander was intercepted by Israeli Barak 8 air defense system


In November last year, at the end of the military confrontation in Nagorno-Karabakh, Yerevan and Baku signed an agreement on a ceasefire mediated by Russia and Turkey after six weeks of fierce fighting, as well as the occupation of the strategically important city of Shusha by the Azerbaijani army.


According to Colonel-General of the Armenian Army Movses Hakobyan, shortly before that, Moscow called on Yerevan to use Iskander missiles and provided material assistance in their launch in order to force the Azerbaijani side to end hostilities.

The Armenian military launched an Iskander ballistic missile directly at Baku a few days before the end of the war ... The missile was destroyed by the Israeli Barak-8 anti-aircraft missile system

- said Hakobyan in an interview with Middle East Eye.

According to the colonel-general, the further use of these weapons could aggravate the military situation on the ground, and this convinced the Azerbaijani authorities to initiate the end of hostilities.

The Azerbaijani military has an operating ground modification of the Barak-8 anti-aircraft missile system. Each launcher has 8 solid-propellant missiles 4,5 m long. The range of the complex is 90 km.

    The inventions of the Armenian hegeral. The missiles of the export version of Iskander-E do not reach Baku in range from their base in Armenia. Therefore, OTRK physically could not be used. It is strange that the general does not know about this. Are they recruiting generals from the street? :)

      Well, firstly, the Ikander's range, even the declared one, is 500 km (although it is assumed that in reality it is much higher, up to 2000-5000 km). And the distance in a straight line, for example, from Yerevan to Baku, is 450 km. So the blow could well have been delivered. And secondly, how could Moscow “force” Baku to stop the war? Strike with your own forces from your territory? Start another war? It is clear that no. To become more "three times aggressor", when there is already a circle of accusations of military interventions around the world. No, no ... But for Yerevan to strike such a blow would be justified, as it were, like "protection from the Azerbaijani aggressor" ... And it worked. The Azeri residents immediately realized that Russia was interfering, albeit behind the scenes, and stopped at the necessary line for Russia. So I am sure that this was the case ... The general told the truth ... And in general, think for yourself, "why the hell" should Russia put the famous medium-range missiles in Armenia, if they don't even reach neighboring countries? For what? Is it logical?

        The export version of Iskander is no more than 300 km. These are the Russian Iskanders hitting at 500 km. So your words are the same diarrhea as the words of the Armenian general.

    Armenian military launched ballistic missile OTRK "Iskander" directly across Baku a few days before the end of the war ...

    Iskander is a family of Russian operational-tactical missile systems.

    Either this is a fake, or the Armenian army is controlled by absolutely incompetent military leaders.

        So OTRK is ballistic missiles.

        According to the field of application, ballistic missiles are divided into strategic and tactical. It is often possible to find a division of missiles according to flight range, although there is no generally accepted standard classification of missiles by range. Different states and nongovernmental experts use different classifications of missile ranges. Here is the classification adopted in the treaty on the elimination of intermediate and short-range missiles:
        Short-range ballistic missiles (from 500 to 1000 kilometers).
        Medium-range ballistic missiles (1000 to 5500 kilometers).
        Intercontinental ballistic missiles (over 5500 kilometers). "

        The main purpose of the Iskander missile systems is to destroy enemy air defense and missile defense systems, as well as the most important objects covered by them, at ranges up to 500 km.

        PS "Iskander" does not fall under the "ballistic missile" classification, according to all treaties.
        Although the Americans tried with all their might to drag him there.

          A ballistic missile or not is determined by the nature of the trajectory of its movement, and not by the flight range. If the missile is flying along a ballistic trajectory, it is ballistic. Even if it flies a kilometer.

              Read:

              Ballistic missile - a kind of rocket weapon. Most of the flight is made along a ballistic trajectory, that is, is in uncontrollable motion (see Ballista).

              Especially for you, I have highlighted the key words, you ... you can't think of it yourself.

            International treaties and characteristics of missiles subject to their effect is not a decree for you ??

            Then you can think whatever you want, the main thing is that we have the Iskander and we know how to use it.

    If this were actually the case, then the whole entourage around the end of the war for Karabakh would be completely different. The interception of Iskander would have been trumpeted immediately after the interception, if he was. Until now, no one trumpets.
