Saudi Arabia to begin operations in Yemen

@Alzoc, do you have any insight as to why armored vehicles are so often fighting in Yemen without visible infantry support?


Sadly no,


This conflict doesn't have a lot of media coverage, and generally speaking, I think it's even worse in France (our media already have a tendency to report very little on ongoing wars).

So almost no public information on that, other than Le Monde saying that "Hey guys, this war is pretty much forgotten here but the casualty count is pretty high, especially for civilian".

"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

UK media silence on this subject is deafening (and thus sickening). 


But defence industry shares are on the up.

That's some pretty disgusting shit if true.

Reminds me of the pantomime warfare between the TFSA and various insurgents in Syria.

It's getting bloody silly TBH.....The Russians are making similar accusations regarding the SDF/ISIS/US in Deir ez Zor, frankly based on current events I've no reason to doubt the veracity of either account.




Not only that it's a crap strategy, the gains/blowback ratio is total bollocks.....Fekkin neocons/tories, utter n00bs trying to play the great game (but without even understanding the language that the rules are written in), it's bloody embarrassing to watch.

Yuri Lyamin on a subject of Houthis attack on KSA airport



   The Yemeni TV channel Al-Masirah has distributed footage of the Burkan-2 missile launch at the Riyadh King Khalid airport. Saudi Arabia yesterday announced the interception of the missile over Riyadh, there are footage of the launch of anti-aircraft missiles on it (as is usual Saudi 'don't count' missiles) and smoke from the remains of the missile in the airport area.


   Still, the question of the origin of the Yemeni Burkan 2 rockets is interesting .. The Riyadh Airport is located about 900 km from the nearest positions of the Houthis, and they were certainly not launched from the very front line. Moreover, the rocket very accurately flew to the target, judging by the fact that it was shot down by the airport AA defence. Although Yemen had North Korean Hwaseon-6 missiles with a range of 600 km, but to remake them with an increased firing range by one and a half times, while maintaining accuracy is, to put it mildly, a very non-trivial task.


   It is clear that this is officially announced as the development of a Yemeni research center, but Yemen did not have its own missile industry and the Saudi coalition has been bombing all the facilities for 2.5 years, which it suspects associated with missiles production. Therefore, I have serious doubts that this can be done now inside Yemen even with the help of Iranian experts. Another option is that the modified version of the missiles was made in Iran, especially the head of the missile is very similar to one of the Iranian variants, but then it is interesting how they can be transported to Yemen through the blockade. Unless they imported missile by parts and assembled it back in Yemen... But this is also difficult to carry and there is a serious risk of interception.

      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!
