    Today the Azerbaijan Army Naval Forces’ military unit celebrates its 32nd anniversary.

    The military unit was established on May 22, 1992. The personnel of naval and coastal units of the Naval Forces took part in the formation of the military unit, Azerbaijan's Defence Ministry told Caliber.Az.

    During the First Karabakh War, the military unit’s personnel participated in the battles for the defence of the Lachin, Kalbajar, Aghdara and Aghdam regions, destroyed a large number of manpower, incapacitated enemy weapons and equipment, as well as liberated a number of strategically important positions from the enemy as a result of successful operations. In general, the personnel honorably fulfilled the assigned combat tasks.

    Over the past period, servicemen of the military unit participated in courses held in various countries’ training centers and achieved high results.

    In addition, the military unit’s personnel destroyed a significant amount of enemy manpower and military equipment in the April battles in 2016.

    The Naval Forces’ military unit also showed great courage in the Patriotic War, which began on September 27, 2020. The tasks set to liberate Azerbaijani lands from enemy occupation were successfully accomplished.

    During the anti-terror operation conducted by the Azerbaijan Army in the Karabakh region, the military unit’s personnel ensured the protection and defense of strategically important facilities.

    Today, the military unit has state-of-the-art weapons, combat vehicles and equipment manufactured by leading defence industry companies.
