'Last year we did a great job in strengthening the material and technical base of our army. At the twice held military parade, we demonstrated a part of our equipment. Among them, I, of course, would like to especially note the Polonaise and LORA long-range rocket systems.
According to Azerbaijan State News Agency, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said this at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers dedicated to the results of socioeconomic development in 2018 and the upcoming tasks.
'The opposite side has no ability to protect against these systems. These systems, breaking 300 kilometres or more, can destroy any military target with high accuracy and great destructive power. Once again I want to say that the enemy has no military target that we could not destroy with high precision.
The acquisition of these systems, of course, increases our military power. At the same time, our military power is multiplied by the acquisition last year of unmanned combat aircraft. Of course, air defence and missile defence systems acquired in recent years strengthen our defence capabilities, while other systems increase our offensive power. Everybody knows that. Events taking place in the military sphere are not a secret to anyone. The opposite side - the enemy also knows and should know that today the Azerbaijani Army is one of the strongest armies on a global scale, and this year additional steps will be taken in this direction,' the head of state said.
