"Today hundreds of Saudi and allied troops, equipped with the latest fighter jets, guided missiles and tanks were ruthlessly slaughtered by some Shia peasants armed with sharpened mud.  Saudi official

After 9/11 the US should have invaded Saudi Arabia.  They're nominally an ally, so they'd never expect it, they actually were involved in funding and supporting the attacks, they have tons of oil, and

Yemeni Army’s ballistic missile strike rocks the Saudi-led Coalition in Al-Lahj

 

 

  The Yemeni Army’s Rocket Battalion fired a Qahir-1 ballistic missile at the Al-‘Anad Military Base on Saturday morning, inflicting heavy losses on the Saudi-led Coalition forces in the Al-Lahj Governorate. 

 
   According to a report from the Yemeni Army, the missile strike was a direct hit on the Saudi Army’s military camp inside the Al-‘Anad Base. This latest attack on Saturday morning is the 2nd ballistic missile strike conducted by the Yemeni Army’s Rocket Battalion in the last 24 hours. 
 
   The overall death toll from today’s attack is still unknown; however, the Yemeni Army reports significant casualties for the Saudi-led Coalition. As a result of these attacks, the Saudi-led Coalition and the Hadi loyalists that are entrenched with them have been forced to seek cover in order to evade anymore of these ballistic missile strikes.

Yemenis hold nationwide demonstrations to denounce the Saudi regime

 

 

  Thousands of people have taken to the streets in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, and other cities to denounce Saudi Arabia’s year-long aggression against the impoverished nation. 

 
   Protesters gathered at Saba’een Square of the capital city on Saturday to slam the Saudi military campaign that has left about 9,400 people dead since March 26, 2015. 
 
   “Together against the tyrannical Saudi aggression,” read a large banner in the hand of the demonstrators as Saudi warplanes were flying overhead, reportedly breaking the sound barrier to frighten the protesters. 
 
   Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians. Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia. 
 
   However, Yemeni army, backed by the committees has been engaged in battles with Saudi-led mercenaries and Hadi’s militias in several areas across the country. 

 

 

Houthi forces exchange 9 Saudi soldiers for 109 Yemenis

 

 

  Saudi Arabia has once again received the short end of the stick in the Yemeni conflict after they reluctantly agreed to exchange 109 captured Houthi and Yemeni Republican Guard soldiers for 9 Saudi prisoners. 

 
   The agreement to conduct this lopsided exchange took place during a meeting between Saudi and Houthi officials in Amman. Despite several meetings, the Houthi and Saudi officials have been unable to reach an agreement regarding the terms of a possible ceasefire. 
 
   As a result, the Saudi Royal Air Force has carried out a ruthless aerial campaign to punish the Yemeni civilians supporting the Houthi and Republican Guard forces.

  At 6 A.M. (Riyadh Time) this morning, the Saudi Royal Army launched a large-scale offensive to recapture Rabu’ah from the Houthis and Yemeni Republican Guard after losing this strategic border-city last November. 

 
   So far, the Saudi Army has made minimal gains against the Houthis and Republican Guard in Rabu;ah, despite the fact that they have the air supremacy and advanced weaponry. 
 
   According to the Yemeni Army’s spokesperson, the Saudi Army and their allies have suffered a large number of casualties during the first hours of this large-scale offensive. 
 
   Currently, the Saudi Army and their allies are still on the offensive; however, if they don’t don’t reach the city gates in the coming hours, they will be forced to withdraw their combatants.

   I already posted here about 2 Leclercs that were damaged (mines) and thats all that is known about UAE Leclercs combat use. Taking into account that UAE moved many of their troops from Yemen and situation there is static, i feel that we will not see anything interesting with Leclercs. Saudis and Co decided to slowly bomb Yemen into stone age.

Houthi forces overrun Saudi-backed forces in Taiz

 

 

  The Houthi forces – backed by the Yemeni Army’s 48th Brigade of the Republican Guard – has seized the Waziyah District of Ta’iz City this morning after a violent battle with the Hadi loyalists and Saudi-led Coalition. 

 
   According to Tony Toh (Al-Masdar’s Yemeni War correspondent), the Houthi forces overran the center of the Waziyah District after the Hadi loyalists withdrew due to low ammunition. In addition to liberating the Waziyah District, the Houthi forces also seized Al-Sheikh village and a number of sites nearby. 
 
   The loss of the Waziyah District this morning is another blow to the Haid loyalists and Saudi-led Coalition; especially, after they lost the large city of Dhubab in February.

      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!
