We are talking about a SHORAD system (no, not Buk).

Armenia is not a superpower yet Azerbaijan has invested billions in air defence. You can't tell me they are going to provide substantial capabilities. Same with Iskander for example, good for parades I suppose.

Azerbaijan is in another situation (since in case of major conflict with Armenia they will also be in trouble with Russia, not Armenia alone)

They also have oil and gas and can throw money around for fancy weapons and even better greased arms deals.

Barak-8 ER, new version of Barak-8 with 150 km max range, was revealed for the first time at the military parade held on 26 June.

https://youtu.be/wBc...TX4E?t=1h10m18s

I actually learned about it two days before on 24 June after the rehearsal. The serviceman of Barak-8 told me that the middle one has a 150 km range. The other two is 70 km range Barak-8 LR.

It's not know yet but editor of a Turkish military magazine on twitter wrote that SOM was test fired from an Azerbaijani Mig-29 during a joint exercise.

Azerbaijani defence minister also talked about Su-25 modernization project by a Turkish company.

So both may be candidates.

Btw, Mi-17s are now armed with Spike NLOS in addition to LAHAT.

they are really filling their arsenals despite OSCE arms embargo since 1992 for both quarrelers.


During the Eurosatory 2018 Rheinmetall and Azerbaidjan signed a letter of intent for "bilateral cooperation", German magazine Stern reports. https://www.stern.de...an-8142486.html

Apparently Barak-8 ER has some BMD capabilities as well, against tactical ballistic missiles.

"BARAK ER, with a dual pulse rocket motor and an additional booster for ranges up to 150 km and enhanced TBM capabilities"

Apparently France has now granted its defence industry firms permission for sales to Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan announces only "more than 300 km" max range for LORA but in reality it's 430 km, covering entire Armenia from any point in Azerbaijan, and also most of Georgia, Russia's North Caucasus and North-Western Iran. 

 

See this, clearly written "maksimal atış uzaqlığı, km - 430 km". CEP is 10 m at all ranges with GPS/INS guidance.

Max range of Polonez is described as "up to 300 km". See this: https://www.armyreco...t_launcher.html

 

Apparently Belarus has developed a new guidance system for Polonez with less CEP achieved in tests. The original Chinese rocket has "less than 30 m" CEP reported.

 

Also pay attention to the wording above: "more than 300 km" vs "up to 300 km", clearly a difference here.

 

Azerbaijani Army describes Polonez as not an MRL, but a "missile system". Not incorrect IMO. 300 km, two stage, able to maneuver in flight.
