    Armenia has multiple SF units

    Which include the police SWAT teams

    National Security Service's Alpha team (pure CT operations) and recently disbanded Maroon Beret's (you can see them in this thread on a parade with a red arm patch with an eagle on it) they were also under NSS but had a wide role from behind the enemy lines operations to anti riot operations.

    Then there is the military SpetsNaz, which Armenians call reconnaissance units

    Nagorno Karabakh has tow special units in the military

    one is recon (blue beret) the other is called special forces (black beret)

    On a side note, were there numbers of Armenian-Americans who returned to Armenia around 1990ish in order to fight in volunteer units in Karabagh?

    I love the pics of the Armenian soldiers, equipment, and landscapes. Keep up the wonderful pictures PLEASE!

    Definatley a number of diasporan armenians went over to help.... The most famous field commander is Monte Melkonian who was California born and raised.... he never received a day of formal military training but with 4,000 troops under his command he was responsible for many of the victories...

    He was a true soldier. He was against drug abuse, never drank when in uniform and often gave up his income to support staff such as military cooks.... He was killed under mysterious circumstances after he torched a Marijuana field belonging to the mafia.














    I got a good stack of pictures still to come but there really isn't alot out other..... If you guys have anything to share, it would be much appreciated.
    Maybe some of you russian servicemen who were stationed at the 302nd in Gyumri have some pics??

    Note in the earlier pics the army base has S-300V with them.

    S-300 is an amazing peice of equipment.... Im glad that it is protecting Armenian Air space.... I wouldn't be suprised if there were a couple systems in Karabakh but theres no way to be positive....

    Kind of like our situation with Nukes...
    The second greatest number of soviet scientists after the Russians were Armenians, plus we have a nuclear reactor so there possibility is definatley there. Now, whether we have the means to deliver it is an entirely different question.

    What type of missiles are those on the MiG's? They look serious, are they good?

    Pretty Standard Russian air force MiG-29s, 9-13s by the look of it, fine planes. Apparently the paint was done locally at a workshop.

    re. Missiles those are R-27s and R-60s.

    Great topic! I have question about uniforms & camo (my kind of hobby) I see on photos at least two types of camo one is Woodland style and second in Russian Tigr/French Lizard, are both being used at the same time or one was used in army after another?

    It might not be able to stop the whole Turkish air force but it will make you think twice before you go on a air raid and it will not allow Turkish air supremacy.

    The S 300 already did part of its intended job though, after its installation Turkish incursions into RA air space dropped significantly.

    Besides the installation is not only aimed at Turks, its Armenia's way of insuring the safety of its air space, a right any sovereign country has.
