No Rapid Victory in Sight for Caucasus Rivals in Karabakh

Neither Armenia nor Azerbaijan can be confident of a rapid victory in the conflict over Nagorno Karabakh, with both geography and the risk of foreign involvement making a military breakthrough unlikely, analysts say.

Both sides inherited equipment, military doctrine, and tactics from the Soviet era, while even their modern equipment comes mostly from Russia, the analysts say.

Azerbaijan can count on a larger standing army, foreign-supplied drones, and a military budget that dwarfs that of Armenia. But this may not be enough to tip the balance in a hugely complex confrontation.
