From 8-10 July 2017, military drills by in Nagorno Karabakh are underway, conducted by the country’s armed forces. The drills are a continuation of a series of military exercises to develop the defensive capacity of the Armenian forces even further. This time, the drills (at an unspecified location) simulated a surprise Azeri attack on Armenian positions and its posterior neutralisation.
The only photos of these drills were made available by the Armenian military authorities. In them, one can spot a new type of light armoured infantry vehicle along with Russian-made “Igla” anti-aire manpads.
