On September 29 the Armenian Defense Ministry announced about downing an Armenian SU-25 jet by a Turkish F-16 fighter jet. The Azerbaijani side also broadly relies on different Turkish UAVs, particularly Bayraktar TB-2 and KARGU 4 quadcopters.
The Armenian side has announced of destroying nearly 250 UAVs, including over a dozen of Bayraktar TB-2. As a result of international pressures, some countries have refused to sell assembly parts for Bayraktar.
