The Azerbaijan Armed Forces are carrying out a large-scale operational and tactical exercise between March 15th and 18th.

The drills involve up to 10,000 military personnel, 100 tanks and other armored vehicles, 200 missile and artillery systems, multiple launch rocket systems, and mortars, and up to 30 military aviation assets, as well as unmanned aerial vehicles for various purposes.

According to the Azerbaijani leadership, the goal of the drills is to “fight against terrorist groups, in particular, illegal armed formations, and to conduct counter-terrorism operations” in mountain-wooded areas with difficult terrain. In other words, Baku declared that its forces are training for another clash with Armenian forces in the Nagorno-Karabakh area.
