Saudi Arabia to begin operations in Yemen

Recommended Posts

I wonder if it was the metis-m, the thing can probably punch through a Challenger 2 

 

but even the base metis can make sort work of a LAV from the side, i believe we actually gave some to the East Germans if i am not mistaken

 

great photos

AQAP's leader was killed last friday in a drone strike. I guess that's good news, but with decapitation of terrorist groups the next guy in line is usually more than willing to pick up the slack and do more terrorist activity. 

 

ISIS has also claimed 4 car bomb attacks in Sanaa(2 against Shia mosques which is more of an ISIS trademark than an AQ one) which isn't good news at all. A possible merger between AQAP and ISIS seems more plausible as we see more ISIS presence in Yemen.

According to French "Intelligence Online", missiles strike on 6th of June this year was done with help of Iranian Intelligence and Security Service ("Wewak"), "Khamis Mushait" base was target of missile attack. On that day, about 12 R-17 missiles were launched.

 

According to newsletter sources Patriot SAM batteries managed to intercept only three missiles. During this operation Chief of Staff of the Air Force of Saudi Arabia Mohammad al-Shaalan was killed.

 

In mid-May a Youtube video was posted in which launcher vehicle 9P117 of the 9K72 missile system was shown on a trailer, moving in the direction of the border with Saudi Arabia.

M60s... Saudis bought so much of new weapons, but use those old museums-grade tanks like M60s.

Without opening up a new thread, I'd like to post this table on airstrikes to show the extent of US strikes in Syria & Iraq. I'd rename this thread to MidEast Shitstorm Extravaganza, but it doesn't seem like I can change it.

The RSAAF has seem to have done a terrible job at destroying Houthi armor if these pics are recent. Not too surprising. You do have to wonder when they will run out of fuel as fuel and food become increasingly scarce in Yemen.

The Saudi armed forces, like most palace guards, are exponentially better at killing the local peasants and helpless bystanders than they are at fighting armed folk.

Expect lots of reprisals dressed up as failed precision strikes.

      Nice meme, why destroy someone's feeling? Why do you even start flame war to ruin the already bad Japanese tech tree? Why don't you sign up a partnership program with Gaijin? She is trying her very best supporting the few of us playing Japanese tank tech tree? I don't care if she made Ho-Ri up or not, none of us want to care about this. We want something good as Russian tanks in War Thunder, and the answer is the Ho-Ri production.  If you say that you have 100 picture of Ho-Ri or 5 video of it, that will be very convincing. But the reality is that your just another Chinese that want to rost Koreans. Sadly you and your Hon Kong are just same person that sits in front of your computer 24/7 without any research on Japanese tank.
      Also if you dare changing our beloved Ho-Ri's slope front armor into flat. EVERYONE in the Japanese tech tree will bloody murder you when you sleep.
      Chinese's best skill: Shit all over someone's thing then copy it

      It occurred to me, while reading LoooSeR's account of how a bunch of peasants are clobbering the expensive Saudi military, that perhaps it was time to take a good, hard look at the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  What a vibrant and wonderful country!
       
      Saudi Arabia leads the world in incest:
       

       
       
      Saudi Clerics have novel theories of science.
       
      They have a diversified, modern economy, which is definitely not unstable:
       

       
      Including a booming agricultural sector!
       
      What a swell place, with enlightened views on women!
