LONDON — The London International Institute for Strategic Studies has published the report on “Military Balance 2012,” in which it analyzes the state of Armenian and Azerbaijani armies.
“Armenian Armed Forces are mostly concentrated on the defense of own territories because of the conflict with Azerbaijan. Thought Armenian military doctrine has mostly Russian influence, various programs which are held abroad also help them get experience,” the British experts say.
The document mentions that the air forces of Armenia mainly deal with settlement of technical issues and the defense of the air space is implemented by the Military Aircraft of Russia through the air base located in Armenia.
As for the Azerbaijani army, the British experts note that “although the military expenses continue to grow thanks to oil revenues and the Azerbaijani army has obtained new kinds of up-to-date weapons, like “C-300” systems, these achievements do not affect the efficiency of the Azerbaijani armed forces.”
The experts consider that Azerbaijani Army must overcome the Soviet system. “Despite the fact Azerbaijani Army has ties with Turkish Army, there are still many problems there.”
