He said the Armenian Armed Forces are able to make surgical military strikes against the important facilities of the enemy in a distance of 300km and more. The past exercises included also such maneuvers. Generally, Davtyan welcomed the high level of the exercises and called them unprecedented due to involvement of up to 45,000 militaries of the National Security and Police troops and nearly 5,000 units of military hardware, aircrafts, drone aircrafts made in Armenia and up-to-date anti-tank weapons. "The tasks set to the manpower were fulfilled," he said.
In response to ArmInfo's question about the modernization trends of the enemy's armor and military hardware, Davtyan said that the Armenian Armed Forces leadership is following acquisition of new armor by the probable enemy and tries not to yield to it.
"I'd like to say that the above anti-tank weapons of our army are designed for the fight against up-to-date models of tanks. I think that modernization and improvement of our arms and military hardware will keep growing," he said.
