"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

Looks like it got whacked in the side so I don't even think an American model would withstand the hit.

I will just copy my post from T110


   Also, video shows one thing (2nd tank) - turret busked with ammo make hull-down to be much less effective. Small rotation of turret reveal this part of turret for any fire, which is what Ansar Allakh ATGM operator managed to exploit (or was lucky to exploit). Basically, turret design compromise hull down tactics, allowing even for ancient ATGMs like Fagot (1970) and Konkurs (1974) to knock out of battle a pretty modern MBTs like M1A2SA. Fagot launcher can use Konkurs missiles, but both missiles are claimed to have 400-500 mm penetration. PG-29VR is over 700 mm, Kornet (old) - 1100, new version is up to 1300-1500 mm. 








Trajectory was something like this, maybe a bit closer to turret rear.

Those are M1A2SA Abrams tanks, export version, generally same as US M1A2, but without Holy DU/ceramics in frontal armor. 

AFAIK Saudi Arabia got a special armor package that is probably more effective than the others, excluding the DU.

Site that count all AFV losses based on photo or video evidence. It was started for Ukrainian Civil War, counting lost tanks and IFV/APCs, now they introduced Yemen conflict as well. 


To this moment site added Saudi Arabia's 4 M2 Bradley IFVs and 4 M1A2S Abrams tanks.

45 dead UAE soldiers, 5 killed soldiers from Bahrain and 33 from other groups, including from Yemen. Rumors are saying that out of those 33, ~20 were from Saudi Arabia.

      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!
