Azerbaijan hands over high-precision bombs for Su-25 to Ukraine

It became known that back in April, Baku handed over to Kyiv a batch of 32 QFAB-250 LG high-explosive fragmentation bombs for Su-25 attack aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force. The sender of the ammunition was the Azerbaijani company CIHAZ Industrial Association, and the recipient was the Ukrainian company Ukrspetseksport, backed by the Ministries of Defense of both countries.

It should be noted that the QFAB-250 LG is a new high-precision guided munition jointly developed according to NATO standards in 2019 by the Scientific Research Institute of the Ministry of Defense Industry of Azerbaijan and the ASELSAN defense corporation from Turkey, and not only for the Su-25. The aerial bomb is laser-guided, weighs 270 kg, of which the warhead is allegedly 250 kg (explosive, probably about 100 kg). Ammunition length 3300 mm, diameter 240 mm. It can hit a target with a deviation of up to 10 meters at a distance of 12 km.

According to investigators from the Iraqi information resource Sabereen News, QFAB-250 LG were delivered to Ukraine covertly and in stages. First, they were brought to Sudan, and from there they were delivered by a cargo plane of the Ukrainian airline Meridian to the Polish Rzeszow airport, after which they were transported by land to Ukrainian territory. In April, there were eight such flights, which may indicate more ammunition than expected.

The authorities of Azerbaijan, Turkey, Sudan, Poland and Ukraine do not comment on this information.

    It became known that...

    Who became aware? Where did it become known? - History is silent about this.
    I think that if Azerbaijan had such wonderful bombs, they would save them for their showdowns with a neighboring state. Such a "huge amount" as 32 pieces, they would certainly have left, and not sold to the left.

      From where such an undisguised lawyer jumped out, like from a snuffbox. With your one-sided statements, you are compromised, as an agent of someone's services and nothing more. Therefore, a one-sided biased view often has the opposite effect ......

      No, it's not. Azerbaijan is in a financial crisis. You can get a loan from the Turks only if Ukraine is being helped

    Another Leninist project, the creation of an artificial republic of Azerbaijan. In fact, the country has long been gone, there are Russian and Turkish zones of influence. Aliyev was left like Zelensky, and the huge losses of the army during the war with the Artsakh Republic led to the unification of the remnants of the army with the Turkish one. The "Azerbaijan" training ground temporarily, with bated breath, follows the events at the "Ukraine" training ground. Now it is part of the Turkish army. All decisions are made by Turkey. Therefore, the transfer of weapons, bombs, mines, phosphorus bombs, cassette bombs for shelling the civilian population is considered the norm. Turkey has lost its influence in Ukraine and will spoil Russia, hoping to regain its influence and restore fascism in Ukraine.

      Azerbaijan was not accepted into the league of nations at the beginning of the last century due to claims to Nakhichevan and Nagorno-Karabakh. Read history. They were accepted into the UN after the collapse of the USSR, only to become part of Turkey, read NATO, which actually happened. I used to read on the Internet about Aliyev's drug addiction, the post was published by his uncle, I have no idea how this post got on the Internet. So Ze took the baton. Yes, and the methods of shelling civilians with phosphorus and cluster shells, throwing mines, fighting churches, dancing on gravestones, point to one decision-making center.

        The League of Nations was founded on January 10, 1920. And on April 28, the Azerbaijan USSR was proclaimed.

          Azerbaijan first gained independence on May 28, 1918, proclaiming the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, which lasted only 23 months. Independence was restored 71 years later, in 1991, on October 18, by the adoption of the Act of Independence of the Republic of Azerbaijan. That's when she was admitted to the UN. Read history.

          The League of Nations, established as a result of the First World War and in accordance with the decisions of the Versailles system, specifically studied the territorial disputes between Armenia and Azerbaijan and, at the same time, relied not only on the documents submitted by the parties, but also on its own special studies. Accordingly, in 1920, the Secretariat of the League of Nations did not accept the ADR into its composition (including because of the territorial claims of Musavatist Azerbaijan to the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, whose population at that time was more than 94% of Armenians).

            Complete nonsense. Ignoring the documents of the League of Nations. By the way, Armenia was also not accepted into this organization with the murderous wording "Armenia is not a state."

            The article addresses the issue of consideration in 1920 of the application for admission of Azerbaijan to the League of Nations. While referring to the documents of the League of Nations and analyzing the situation at that time, the author refutes the allegations of the Armenian side by clarifying the real obstacles which prevented Azerbaijan from being admitted to the League of Nations. At the same time, the article discloses a number of circumstances that are of vital importance in elucidating the true consequences of consideration of the application for admission of Armenia itself to the League of Nations. In fact, the documents referred to in the article demonstrate that the League of Nations did not consider Armenia as a state and proceeded from the fact that this entity had no clear and recognized boundaries, and its government is unstable. As a result, Armenia was not admitted to the League of Nations by the vote held on 16 December 1920. The author however concludes that, whatever the findings of the League of Nations in regard to the applications for admission of Azerbaijan and Armenia to this organization , they cannot serve as a ground for reconsideration of the subsequently established territorial framework of the states concerned. Otherwise, the international legal personality of Armenia would be called into question.

    Well, why don't Azerbaijanis supply bombs to kill Russians? because they know that the Tsar is kind (Leopold the cat), and he does not dare to kick all the drug and alcohol diasporas of Baku from the Russian Federation

      For starters, it would be nice to know that this is fake news. In June, a fake was dispersed that Azerbaijan supplied Ukraine with 82 mm mortars. Now there is a fake about bombs.
      Do you know what is the easiest and most reliable way to determine that this is a fake? The fact that Azerbaijan supplied them for free. After that, you can close the news and ignore it.

      Strictly speaking - "news" so-so. What really happens - no one can say. My vision of this "news" is as follows.
      Azerbaijan produces these bombs. This has been written about for a long time and there is no secret about it. 60% of the Azerbaijani military-industrial complex is exported. It's not a secret either. Information can be found in official sources. Another thing is the nomenclature of these deliveries. Published cargo lists show that military supplies from Azerbaijan were delivered to Sudan. What exactly is not specified. Since the weight of the boxes was 270 kg, it was SUGGESTED that these could be aerial bombs. The number of boxes does not correspond to the declared number of bombs of 32 pieces.
      From Sudan, these boxes were taken out by the Ukrainian airline Meridian. That's all I could dig up.
      When supplying weapons, a standard item is a clarification about the ban on re-export. All this is very, very unsteady to draw specific conclusions. By the way, these bombs are produced under a Turkish license. And the supply of weapons by Turkey does not cause such a surge of emotions. Putin shook hands not only with Aliyev, but also with Erdogan.
      There is another purely military aspect of this "news". Air bombs are used from aircraft. It seems to me. Given that Ukrainian aviation cannot rise above 500 meters, it is completely incomprehensible why Ukraine needs this ammunition? 12 km in range, for modern air defense - not a problem at all.

      My personal take on this. If this is true, then I'm not happy. But it seems to me that all this is another fake stuffing.

    One thing is clear - in the course of the NMD, Russia needs to increase the army, train it and equip it to a size that will allow not only "bringing to life the multi-vector nature of the border regimes", but also forcing them to maintain this army in one way or another.

    It is unlikely that Azerbaijanis will supply weapons to Ukraine. Aliyev is not a stupid man, he understands the consequences. Most likely, this fake came from the Armenians "offended" by him.
