According to official reports out of Azerbaijan’s Defence Ministry, 10-11 April saw training flights involving air force units in different parts of the country. The first event om 10 April saw Su-25 ground attack aircraft and MiG-29 fighters taking off from the country’s biggest military airbase, Nasosny airbase, north of Baku. No video of live-fire exercises involving the aircraft was show, thus, possibly was not conducted.
On 11 April, combat helicopters including Mi-8, as well as Mi-24 and Mi-35 gunships took off from an airbase in Yevlakh (previously having flown in from another base) 35 km from the line-of-contact, and carried out live-fire drills with air-to-ground unguided rockets at an undisclosed military training ground. No further details of the event were made public.
While the event appeared to be a routine training flight, parts of the helicopters possibly housing radar detection devises were blurred out in the official video. In a previous video from 2018 however, the devises were not blurred out, possibly pointing to a new modification fitted on the gunship types since then.
