"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

Youtube version of the video. Note that in first seconds you can see that one of missile exploded during launch before video started.


WTF is wrong with thise guys? Hitting city itself with AA missiles, missile exploding during launch... 




I wonder if the second Patriot tracked the debris from the first Patriot and Scud.

   Saudi Patriot PAC-2 SAM battery in Riyadh fired MIM-104C Surface to Air Missiles at a Burkan 2-H SRBM (Short Range Ballistic Missile) in the night between Mar 25 and 26, 2018.

   The SRBM was reportedly intercepted by one of the SAMs (at least 7 according to journalist Babak Taghvaee were launched) but at least two of them failed: one hit a resindential area (at the time of writing the number of casualties/fatalities is unknown), whereas another one exploded mid-air shortly after launch.

So 7 fired, 2 failed.

   Recently, after Houthis missiles attack against Saudi Arabia, they [Saudis] gave a very strange press conference. They presented part of the Iranian Sayyad-2C anti-aircraft missile, allegedly intercepted on its way [transported] from Iran to Yemen. To my deepest surprise, the Saudis decided to connect this missile to the recently introduced by Houthis missile system Badr-1.











   Surprise is quite understandable, as according to the claims of Houthis Badr-1 is designed to attack ground targets, and judging from the rocket launch footage, it is more like a large-caliber rocket, probably with an fixed tails.




   With regard to the Sayyad-2C Iranian anti-aircraft missile, these are modifications of the Sayyad-2 missiles designed to be launched from the Raad \ 3rd Hordad missile launchers. I basically can not exclude the fact that the Iranians could try to somehow drag through a blockade in a disassembled mobile AA system to Yemen, but to launch the Sayyad-2C you need a suitable launcher and a radar. There is no evidence of their use in Yemen. That is, more evidence is needed. Trying to attach Badr-1 to this missile in my opinion looks like pure propaganda.

11.04.2018 launches against KSA by Houthis.


The Burkan-H2 rocket flew to the capital of the Saudi kingdom, and Badr-1 flew to one of the border regions of Saudi Arabia.




Badr-1 by the way is similar to the 302-mm Chinese missiles WS-1 \ Syrian Khaibar-1, Badr-1 also looks like have fixed tail wings.

Houthis showed Rujoom mortars that they are producing. Different models - from 60 mm up to 120 mm.

      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!
