Updated: Jul 26, 2020

As the the clashes in Nagorno-Karabakh heat up, footage of more strikes are starting to be released. The Azerbaijani Ministry of Defence uploaded a video of what appears to be a Spike-NLOS attack.

The footage is supposedly deep in Armenian territory. That and the crosshair shown in the footage suggests that the strike was likely carried out using a Spike-NLOS missile. The Spike-NLOS is capable of striking targets that are 25 kilometres away. Azerbaijan is known to have bought 250 Spike-NLOS missiles.

Azerbaijan has also been acquiring a variety of drones as of late. Most of these have been purchased from Israel. Azerbaijan has two models of suicide drones. The Oribiter 1k and the heavier SkyStriker. These are capable of carrying out similar strikes as they can loiter before picking and destroying a target well beyond visual range. Azerbaijan also recently bought Bayraktar TB2 drones from Turkey. These could prove to be a game changer in this seemingly never-ending low-intensity conflict.
