"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


   UAE/KSA attempting to advance while Houthis were busy with Saleh and Yemeni army units loyal to him, short post by Yuri Lyamin on a subject:


   The coalition forces took advantage of the weakening of the Houthis forces on the southern front and launched a powerful offensive along the Red Sea coast of Yemen, trying to break through from the port of Moha to the most important port of Hodeida.

   The armored fist of this offensive is again the emirate troops with Leclerc tanks, 155 mm self-propelled howitzers G6, 120 mm self-propelled mortars Agrab on the chasis of RG-31, BTR Patria AMV, etc. In principle, the terrain on the coast favore the application of heavy armored vehicles.

Yuri Lyamin on a subject of missile remains shown to public:


   The Americans laid out the photo of the rocket fragments brought from Saudi Arabia to the US, launched by the Houthis at the airport of Riyadh. In general, if you believe these photos and statements from the US, the rocket was almost certainly a variant of the Iranian Qiam missile. The main material of the hull is not steel, like the original R-17 and old North Korean and Iranian copies, but aluminum alloys, it is also claimed that the rocket has no tail aero-dynamic stabilizers. On separate fragments of the components of the missile is visible the marking of the Iranian industrial groups Shahid Hemad and Shahid Bagheri, member of the Organization of the Aerospace Industry of Iran. It is assumed that the rocket was transported in parts and was assembled in Yemen, as evidenced by the presence of coarse welds in places, which contrast sharply with other seams, which were clearly done in industrial conditions.

Houthis launch missile at the royal palace in Riyadh.



   The launch took place during the day, so it's clear that Burkan H2 is the Iranian Qiam. The missile lacks tail aerodynamic stabilizers - this is a very characteristic external feature of Iranian missiles, no one has ever produced such variations of Scuds. Actually, the Iranians did this in many ways so that it would be more convenient to store and launch missiles from underground missile bases.



   It should be noted that the Iranian Qiam-1 has a declared range of up to 800 km., That is, to reach 1,000 km of range there should be reduced the mass of the warhead. This naturally worsens both the accuracy of the missiles and the damaging effect. Moreover, it is not a high-precision missile at its standard range, since it has only an autonomous inertial navigation system, and the detachable warhead is not maneuvering. Considering the possible errors in the missile calculation in calculating the course, errors in assembling the rocket in Yemeni conditions, etc., such single launches have a more psychological effect so far, bringing the military atmosphere to Riyadh. On the other hand, there is always the probability of a successful hit, which at once may pay for the effort.

They would be better used to hit military bases closer to Yemen and killing KSA officials or something similar.

Saudis still making sure to keep up with bombing civilians


 "Yemen war: Saudi-led strikes 'kill 68 civilians in one day'"

This is fine, but those Houthis better not fire a missile back at the Saudis. 


Also, I didn't know the Houthis have frogmen. They seemed to have captured a coalition AUV. The naval aspect of this war needs to be reported on more.

Al-Manar reports:

- The press secretary of the Yemeni army, Aziz Rashid, said on Monday on al-Masirah about the activation of the new air defense system of the army and people's committees: "This military achievement of the Yemen air defense is the result of the directives of the Revolution Leader and the efforts of the Ministry of Defense."




Are they using missiles for jets as AA weapon?

      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!
