Azerbaijani S-300 shot down by Su-25 attack aircraft of the Armenian Air Force

Azerbaijan was shot down by an Armenian Su-25 attack aircraft.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan reported that a few hours ago, the country's air defense systems shot down another combat aircraft of the Armenian Air Force - it turned out to be another Su-25 attack aircraft. Sources report that the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system was used for this for the first time, which indicates that this is not only the first use of these air defense systems by Azerbaijan, but also the world's first use of the S-300 systems against a combat aircraft (up to the S-300 complexes shot down two tactical missiles on the outskirts of Yerevan - editor's note).

Moreover, according to the newly updated data, one more Su-25 attack aircraft of the Armenian Air Force was shot down - the fourth combat aircraft of this country, destroyed during a month of military confrontation in Karabakh.

“On October 13, at about 18:12 (18:13 Moscow time) and 20:12 (20:25 Moscow time), two Su-XNUMX attack aircraft of the Armenian Armed Forces, attempting to inflict airstrikes on the positions of the Azerbaijani Army in the Gubadli direction of the front, were shot down by air defense units Azerbaijan ", - reported the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan.

At the moment, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry does not comment on the data on how exactly two combat aircraft were shot down, however, if the Azerbaijani army began to deploy S-300 complexes, this could become a very big problem for the Armenian Air Force, especially against the background of statements about the start of use fighters Su-30SM.
