    The comment was meant to be humorous, reflecting the rapid rate at which the Houthis get through Saudi armor.

    On Tuesday, Iraqi fighter jets hit a terrorist base in the town of Barwanah, located some 200 kilometers northwest of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, killing the alleged Daesh war minister, identified as Samer Mohammad Matloub Hussein al- Mahlawi, Lebanon's al-Ahed news website reported.

    Over 100 vehicles belonging to the terrorists were also demolished in the operation, including a number of cars equipped with explosive materials during the offensives in Barwanah and Haditah cities. The airstrikes left more than 250 Daesh militants killed.

    Moreover, a number of Daesh terrorists were killed on Tuesday as fighters from Popular Mobilization Units stormed a congregation of the militants in the vicinity of the main hospital in Ramadi, situated about 110 kilometers west of Baghdad.

    Was it due to similar "technical problems" that affected the Bahraini F-16 a while ago?

    Not really in Iraq but...

    http://sputniknews.com/us/20160113/1033030118/pentagon-technical-rationalists.html#ixzz3xByujqCN

    As the US continues to bomb Daesh, also known as IS/Islamic State, it refuses to accept that its Syrian operations are a losing campaign. As Breaking Defense points out, this failure relates to the Pentagon’s limited – and outdated – idea of its technological and moral superiority.

    "Americans are technical rationalists, and our devotion to this philosophical outlook is part of the reason why we continue to move towards military failure and not success," Ben Zweibelson writes for the military commentary website.

    As defined by Zweibelson, technical rationalism refers to military strategies that can be "objectively and analytically measured and controlled within universal principles and techniques." Namely, that any conflict can be solved by simple technological superiority over an enemy.

    This viewpoint, according to the pundit, is severely limiting, especially given that much of the Pentagon’s strategy is designed for traditional warfare against rival nation states.

    No comment on US supplied gear or their big orders for more of it.

    Russian weapons and hardware have given Iraq a leg-up in its struggle against Daesh terrorist group, Iraqi Defense Minister Khaled Obeidi said Friday.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) — Russian arms supplies are best in combat, the Iraqi defense minister added. "Most of our Air Force warplanes and weapons as a whole were made in Russia. Russian weapons are best in combat. Russia has played a big role in supporting and supplying us with arms and hardware, contributing greatly to the fight against Daesh," Obeidi said.

    Russia has been supplying the Iraqi Armed Forces with weapons, fighter jets and attack helicopters.

    New video of Mi-28NE strikes against ISIS positions.
    This time, the video is captured by the Mi-28 itself, not by an IA-407 like usual.

    It seems they were added by whoever uploaded the video to show the location of the targets. They don't look like they are part of the original footage to me.

    Excellent footage of Iraqi AF raining fire on Daesh rats. Two groups of 10+ rats get vaporized.
    Also, some nice hits on moving targets.

    Footage released by MOD 5 days ago.
