"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




"Saudi Arabia army analyzes the reasons of failures in Yemen and is looking for ways to solve them.


   As offensive of Saudi Arabia in Yemen is nearly stalled, the Saudi Ministry of Defense analyzes the reasons for failure said the reported of the French Newsletter "Intelligence online".


   First of all, it turned out that the existing Saudi army cannon positions detection radars are not effective on rough terrain. In addition, their range is too small for a Huthis MLRS "Grad" with a range of over 30 km. MLRS is mounted on four-wheel vehicles like Toyota, they can take a position to shoot ammunition and leave it in two minutes.


   Despite its accuracy and power, 155-mm/52 self-propelled howitzers CAESAR, used by Saudi Arabia National Guard (SANG), were completely "blinded" because of this. A further disadvantage is the fact that the border guard radars system (part of Saudi Border Guard Development (SBGDP, a former contract of Miksa) programm) have a small detection range. The ground forces of the kingdom looking for new opportunities to conduct reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition: balloons will be placed along the border with Yemen, which, together with UAVs will monitor the mountainous areas.


   Saudi armed forces now have a task of more accurate targeting of Huthis units, that are highly mobile, the Army and Navy of Saudi Arabia plans to buy long-range missiles with laser guidance [may havebe US GMLRS]. In addition, the family of guided and unguided rounds for naval and ground artillery Vulcano by Italian company Oto Melara (part of Finmeccanica) with a range of 120 km, can be the solution to all tasks."

So no wonder why the Saudis wanted Pakistan's help so badly. It seems the House of Saud's toy soldiers haven't been covering themselves in glory. Or have I been misreading these updates?

As i understand, their operation isn't going too well, but they still managed to gain Aden, which is important part of Yemen conflict (logistics for example, money flow, etc). 


ATGM used against Saudi vehicles (Konkurs).



Unknown UAE-equipped coloumn ambushed, possibly those are pro-Saudi forces ("Southerners"), near Mekeyris city in the province of Al-Beida (South Yemen).

So context of previous (first) video - that is Ansar Allakh vdeo (Houthis), showing action against Saudi forces (border tower) on the border with Saudi province of Jizan. 




Saud forces ambushed by Ansar Allakh, almost same place as video with border tower.

Video title says "Yemen, destruction of Abrams tanks with Konkurs", but those could be Leclercs... video quality isn't that good at this moment (360p). 


EDIT: found original



Looks like Abrams to me.

      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!
