"Azerbaijani army is equipped with the most modern, precise and newest weapons that will destroy any military infrastructure or military facilities in Armenia's territory," Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry says in a statement in response to Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan's statements that Armenia has cutting-edge ballistic missiles capable of hitting the most 'prosperous' community in Azerbaijan.
It is noteworthy that Serzh Sargsyan's statement followed Baku's constant military rhetoric and threats to 'seize Yerevan.'
Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry claims that it is not frightened with Sargsyan's statements. They are sure that Armenia has no modern military equipment, only "old, disordered, obsolete weapons and ammunition left from the former Soviet-era as well as fuel-engine Scud missiles that are not just incapable of destroying any facility, but also don't even have the capability to rise into air."
Meanwhile, military experts say that Scud is a top-class ballistic missile due to its impressive destruction potential. In addition, the Armenian Armed Forces have thoroughly improved the preciseness of the missiles.
