The Russian self-propelled anti-aircraft missile-gun system (ZRPK) Pantsir-S1 (aka "Tunguska-3") began to enter service only in 2008. Earlier, Armenia refused to acquire them, but now it became known that several such complexes were destroyed at once by the attacks of the Azerbaijani army on the territory of Karabakh.

How exactly these complexes got to the territory of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is a mystery. Azerbaijan suspects Russia of supplying them to the Armenian side, the avia.pro edition notes .

However, the fact of the use of the "Shell" by the Armenian military is unknown, but the Turkish edition of Haber 7 wrote about their destruction. According to Turkish journalists, the Russian "Pantsiri-S" also allegedly managed to be disabled in Syria and Libya, and this relatively new Russian development showed its helplessness in front of the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones.

Since the Pantsir-S air defense missile system was not officially in service with Armenia until the last few days and was not found in this region in any way, experts say that they could have been delivered only a few days, at most a few weeks ago, that is, directly during the aggravated a month ago, the armed Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict. On the other hand, the Azerbaijani side also did not provide any evidence of the destruction of the complexes, except for victorious reports, which could be a provocation on its part.

As for the Bayraktar TB2 drones , now they are already in service with the Ukrainian army , moreover, the other day Ukraine signed an agreement with Turkey on the imminent start of their production in Ukraine itself.
