Saudi Arabia to begin operations in Yemen

Recommended Posts

That single BMP-3 was exactly one i told about already - check this thread, there is a video from that road. It is very likely to be destroyed by AT mine. There are not many IFVs that can survive anti-tank mines, not just IEDs.

But shouldn't an AT mine leave the hull kind of intact? That BMP-3 looks like it was hit by an ATGM.

Why it "should"? if it was hit by ATGM, it would leave a hitmark and not a big hole (smaller that missile caliber) in armor, because of HEAT warhead.

 

Wouldn't the ATGM destroy the ammo, which would destroy the whole IFV?

Or they could have stacked a bunch of mines on top of each other. Or stuck an artillery shell just under the mine.

This tendency can be seen any time you add boys and explosives together.

 

My USMC friend said that they once found an IED hidden in a street block.

 

The IED composed of 4 155mm artillery shells (each one ~ 55kg). Managed to deactivate it though thankfully.

In Iraq and Afghanistan they've seen almost everything used as IEDs. aircraft bombs, artillery shells etc, Whatever they can get their hands on.

Seeing those Oshkosh things destroyed is a good sight.

 

You can't destroy an Oshkosh, you can only make it even more repulsive and spread it's parts to infect even more places at once.

      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.

      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!
