Overview Of Azerbaijani Strikes On November 8, 2020 (Videos)


On November 8, Azerbaijani combat drones and warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on Armenian forces in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The airstrikes, which were likely carried out with Bayraktar TB2 combat drones and Su-25 close air support warplanes, hit four fortified positions of Armenian forces near the town of Martuni, known by its Azerbaijani name Khojavend.

The Azerbaijani military is apparently using Bayraktar TB2 drones to detect and designate ground targets for Su-25 warplanes.

Bayraktar TB2 drones are equipped with the Canadian Wescam CMX-15D optronic system that can illuminate ground targets with laser from a long distance. The illuminated targeted can be, in theory, picked up by Klen-PS, a laser designator and range finder that is installed in the nose of Su-25 warplanes.

Using this tactic, Azerbaijani Su-25 can possibly deploy Soviet-made laser-guided missiles, like the Kh-25ML and the Kh-29L from a safe distance and with higher accuracy.

Precision-guided weapons have granted the Azerbaijani military the upper hand in Nagorno-Karabakh battlefield since the beginning of the war on September 27. Armenia claims that the Turkish Air Force is overseeing Azerbaijani aerial operations over the region.
