War Once More: Documenting Equipment Losses During The September 2022 Armenia-Azerbaijan Border War

By Jakub Janovsky, DanStijn Mitzer, Joost Oliemans and Kemal
Conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan flared up again on Monday the 12th of September 2022, with both sides engaging in artillery duels that have so far resulted in hundreds of soldiers killed on both sides. Azerbaijani forces struck Armenian forces after what it claims is a buildup of Armenian landmines on the border, while Armenia said that several border towns were being shelled as part of a large-scale provocation by Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan has made extensive use of Bayraktar TB2 unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs) to strike Armenian positions, leading to the destruction of numerous targets including two S-300PS surface-to-air missile (SAM) batteries.
A list of the destroyed and captured equipment of both sides can be seen below. This list only includes destroyed vehicles and equipment of which photo or videographic evidence is available. Therefore, the amount of equipment destroyed is higher than recorded here. Hits on fortified structures and captured civilian vehicles are not included in this list. This list will be updated if additional footage becomes available.
