    I'm more surprised, that Saudi air force didn't bomb this stockpile before it fall to Houtis. This is a big object with a lot of supplies. Really hard to miss.

    Who knows, that stockpile is massive.

    Saudi air-force is completely disorganized, i doubt they'll bomb it for a few days.

    Saudi airforce is being spoon fed by the US, there's nothing disorganized about it. It's just they can't help their ground troops.

    I rest my case. Wink

    I agree with you on the end game, but the KSAAF is the only thing that works properly in this war (including killing civilians). You can't help people that can't fight.

    You mean civilians or the KSA/Merc army??

    I mean that the rag tag army that the KSA is putting together to fight instead of its own inept troops is even less prone to coordinate with the RSAAF.
    The RSAAF is doing its job properly (including terrorozing Yemeni civilians) but they cannot interoperate with the troops on the ground outside QRF calls like we've seen. The armed forced of Saudi Arabia despite all their kit cannot operate as a land component of an interarms structure.

    And as Fred333 said, without the RSAAF (and US strikes) Popular Islamic Republic of NovoHouthia would have it's Capital in Bishah or outright in Mecca.

    Alright KoTeMoRe, in that case it is not the KSAAF that is disorganize, but rather the coordination between them and there ground elements.

    That's why I agreed with you on the core of the problem. It's like having the best brakes ever, but a broken car.

    1. What numbers and equipment does pro-Houthi Yemeni army have?
    2. What is the intensity of fighting? How many dead combatants per day, weak, month etc?
    3. What is the scfale of Iranian involvement?

    MiG-21s and SU-22s

    @ zg18
    Is the shot down Apache new or old pictures?

    Edit: I just checked. The pictures are new but the helicopter is the one that was shot down a few months ago. The wreck has just been found.

    Thanks again.

    So the Saudis have only been able to keep it for three months. Pretty embarrassing for them, did they operate anything from it? Do you expect them to now attack it as I assume they did earlier in the year?

    Well, it is a nice slow demise for Saudi Arabia.  Cause the bombs they are using now seems to not be effective, if they are losing territory, men and equipment within Saudi Arabia itself from these Houthis.

    As long as KSAAF continues to operate, I'm guessing not far. Achilles heel would be logistics, and even the Saudis are competent enough to bomb long Houthi motorized supply lines into their country. Flipflop food express will only get you into striking distance of border towns.

    Bishan. the RSAAF can bomb all it wants, the problem currently is that Houthis can fight with very limited supplies. The RSAAF so far has demonstrated only pre-planned strikes, CAS and loitering have been really bad. Most times the RSAAF has come well behind, from 5 to 10 minutes after contact when the guys they need to bomb are either done with the Saudis, or simply to close to strike. Which they do anyway.

    Houthis don't do motorized motorcades they do zone inflitration. They're not ISIS or moderate rebels.

    Two Saudi Policemen Shot Dead in Shi’ite Province Amid Religious Tensions
    0
    By P.Antonopoulos on November 18, 2015 Middle East

    Two policemen have been shot dead in Qatif, in the country’s east. It is a predominantly Shi’ite area.

    The Saudi Press Agency reported that militants opened fire on the police vehicles.

    An unnamed official interior ministry said investigations are under way but there are no suspects yet to the killings that occurred near farm fields.

    Major ASW ship Vice Admiral Kulakov entered the Red Sea

    Today the Northern Fleet major ASW ship Vice Admiral Kulakov performing tasks during a long-range cruise finished passing the Suez Canal from the Mediterranean Sea into the Red Sea and continued movement to the off-shore ocean zone.

    A day ago, the crew conducted training on damage control in movement, checked simulated suspicious vessel, and performed counterterrorist actions using small arms.

    Several days ago, the ship made an official visit to the port of Limassol (Cyprus) for rest and replenishment of water, food and fuel supplies.

    Since October 23, the major ASW ship Vice Admiral Kulakov has already passed over 5,5 thousand nautical miles, some of them under the conditions of stormy weather.
    http://eng.mil.ru/en/news_page/country/more.htm?id=12066368@egNews

    Hope it will stick around Aden for some time, maybe we can expect a Russian IL-76 or An-124 with humanitarian aid material in the coming days?
    But in that case, there is nothing medium or long-range AD missiles on 1155 for them to successfully keep off any Saudi coalition a/c from threatening any Russian transport aircraft.
