It seems to be a repurposed M167 Vulcan, i.e an originally towed one.

But if it's really that useful to them, I don't understand why settle only for ammunition from Iran?

Iran already produces a 3-barreled, 23mm gatling gun that it could deliver to the Houthis. Everyone already knows they're deep in that mess.

Or so we're constantly told, eh?  :rolleyes:

Iran is supporting Houthis, ballistic missile parts, Iranian thermal imagers and Iranian Kornet copies photos from Yemen were posted by me in different threads in SH.

I thought the missile components (& presumably other items) we've seen were delivered before the embargo?

   No, they were shipped after war began. Saudis and Coalition were so bad at blockade that Houthis and Iranians managed to sneak in several ballistic missiles into Yemen. I wish Houthis were aiming those things at targets that they could actually hit instead of going for high-PR targets that missile can barely reach. Iranians don't have or could not deliver a missile with higher range and better accuracy, looks like. If Houthis had that, they could fuck up Saudi royal familiy or their oil infrastructure.

 

   Yuri Lyamin also covered those ballistic missiles. Apperently some parts were shipped disassembled and they were supposed to be welded/assembled inside of Yemen.

 

Examples:

Thermal imager

      ISIS, how you get so many Toyota Hilux pickups?
       
      U.S. Treasury inquires about ISIS use of Toyota vehicles 
      http://abcnews.go.com/International/us-officials-isis-toyota-trucks/story?id=34266539
       
      Toyota Hilux pickups, an overseas model similar to the Toyota Tacoma, and Toyota Land Cruisers have become fixtures in videos of the ISIS campaign in Iraq, Syria and Libya, with their truck beds loaded with heavy weapons and cabs jammed with terrorists. The Iraqi Ambassador to the United States, Lukman Faily, told ABC News that in addition to re-purposing older trucks, his government believes ISIS has acquired “hundreds” of “brand new” Toyotas in recent years.
      “This is a question we’ve been asking our neighbors,” Faily said. “How could these brand new trucks... these four wheel drives, hundreds of them -- where are they coming from?”

      This was posted on tanknet back in April, I can't believe I missed it.  I'm pretty sure this constitutes a grave crime against AFV decency and good taste.  And why the glossy green paint?
