Saudi Arabia to begin operations in Yemen

Recommended Posts

   Saudis shot down their own UAV.



   Yesterday, April 11, sources in the Saudi coalition said that a large Hussite UAV was shot down over the eastern province of Hadramaut. Some reported that it was shot down by the Patriot air defense system, that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were deployed in the controlled territories in Yemen as early as 2015. However, when enough footage appeared from the site of the remains, it turned out that the coalition air defense shot down one of the CH-4B of  Saudi Arabia Air Force, supplied by China.

"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

   On May 14, 2019, the Houthis reported that seven of their unmanned aerial vehicles had conducted a major military operation against vital facilities of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As it soon became known, drones attacked objects of the Saudi oil infrastructure. In Riyadh, it was acknowledged that two oil pumping stations of the East-West oil pipeline (Petroline) were attacked.  This pipeline is designed to supply oil bypassing the Persian Gulf, through the Yanbu oil terminal on the Red Sea coast. As a result of the attack on the oil pumping station 8, a fire broke out, which was localized, but the operation of the pipeline was stopped to assess damage and restore the pumping station.




   In general, it’s an interesting coincidence that on May 12, unknown attacked tankers at the port of Al-Fujairah, where the UAE oil pipeline goes bypassing the Strait of Hormuz, and on May 14, Houthis attacked the Saudi East-West oil pipeline, which is also intended to be able to supply oil bypassing the Strait of Hormuz. This together looks like a hint from Iran that the Arab monarchies are greatly mistaken that if it comes to something serious, Tehran will simply give them opportunity to supply oil for export via bypass routes.

   KSA belive that Iranian cruise missile was used against airport



   An Iranian-made Ya Ali cruise missile was used in the 12 June attack on Abha International Airport in southwest Saudi Arabia, Colonel Turki al-Maliki, the spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition said on 24 June.

   The missile hit the airport's arrivals terminal but only inflicted relatively minor injuries and damage. The Yemeni rebel group Ansar Allah claimed responsibility, saying the attack and another against the Al-Shuqaiq power plant a week later were carried out using cruise missiles.

   Jane's thought that Czech company probably supplied jet engine for it and contacted them, they told that they didn't sold anything to iran. Engine is probably Iranian copy or something similar-looking. That (or very similar one) engine is mounted on Shahed-191 UAVs as well.

      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!
