Turkey, Azerbaijan, Pakistan launch ‘Three Brothers’ joint military exercises​


  • The ‘Three Brothers — 2021’ exercises are being held in the Azerbaijani capital of Baku with the aim of ‘further strengthening the existing ties’ between the three armies
  • Pakistan and Turkey provided support to Azerbaijan during the 44-day-long Second Karabakh War against Armenia

ANKARA: As part of their tripartite military cooperation, Turkey, Pakistan and Azerbaijan began eight-day joint military drills on Sept. 12.
The “Three Brothers — 2021” exercises are being held in the Azerbaijani capital of Baku with the aim of “further strengthening the existing ties” between the three armies and helping them find new ways to fight terrorism in the region, according to an official readout.
Lt. Gen. Hikmat Mirzayev, Azerbaijan’s special forces commander, said during the opening ceremony that cooperation between the three countries was at “the highest level” and that important measures were being taken to further strengthen relations to ensure the security of the region and its people.
Experts say this new format for military cooperation adds a new layer to the political ties that date back to 2017, when Azerbaijan’s then-Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov held the first trilateral meeting with his Turkish and Pakistani counterparts in Baku.
Pakistan and Turkey provided support to Azerbaijan during the 44-day-long Second Karabakh War last September in which Azerbaijan fought against Armenian armed forces until the conclusion of a Russia-brokered truce in November.

I think this is a very important thread to keep alive. Turkey's military industrial complex is producing very good, battle tested weapons platforms that many countries are buying. Plus, these weapons are all going into the arsenal of Turkey's military. Turkey is reaching an agreement to buy South Korea's advanced K2 tank and are purchasing the F-16V as well as upgrading their F-16s to the V variant.

Azerbaijan is an oil producing country that unfortunately has Israeli support due to the number of Jews still living there as well as receiving natural resources from them. They also have a battle tested military in its war against Armenia. Side note, I hope Armenia wakes up and recognizes the need to upgrade their military and training asap. One other thing about Azerbaijan is that Turkey has over 200 "advisors" there and have stationed 3-5 F-16s there as well.

Pakistan is a loose canon due to its economy. Although they did purchase several Chinese fighter jets in the past year.

Long story short, Turkey is becoming a regional power with eyes to re-create the Ottoman Empire.
