    Houtis have no BM capable to reach Riyad. What is the minimal distance to the border ?

    Maybe it was some drones.

    Unfortunately for the Saudis it seems there was a bit of self inflicted damage, probably the impact in the video I linked. In the final analysis it doesn't matter who's missile inflicts the damage, it wouldn't have happened if the missiles hadn't got there.

    So this is the missile "intercepted". There is no sign it was intercepted. If it was the case it would be full of small holes and probably in hundreds of pieces because warhead would have exploded too.

    IMO it looks like it had a cluster munition warhead and released it and the body just fall on the ground.

    Btw they talked about three missile but houtis daid manny type of missiles used and also drones.

    Seems like another failure of Saudi air defence.

    Ansarallah forces launch largest attack inside Saudi Arabia since start of Yemen War

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 P.M.) – The Ansarallah Movement announced on Sunday that its armed forces carried out a major military operation inside Saudi territory, bombing “sensitive targets” in Riyadh, Jizan, Najran and Asir with a large number of missiles and drones.

    The spokesman for the Ansarallah-aligned Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier Yahya Sare’a, said in a broadcast posted by Yemen’s Al-Masirah TV: “In fulfillment of the promise of the leader of the revolution, and our inauguration for the sixth year of steadfastness and in response to the escalation of the air aggression alliance during the past days, our armed forces, with the help of God Almighty, carried out the largest qualitative military operation at the beginning of the sixth year, targeting depth of the Saudi enemy.

    He explained that “the joint military operation of the missile force and the Air Force managed to target a number of sensitive targets in the capital of the Saudi enemy, Riyadh, with Zulfiqar missiles, and a number of Samad-3 aircraft.”

    “The major military operation also targeted a number of economic and military targets in Jizan, Najran and Asir, with a large number of Badr missiles and 2K bombers.”

    “The Saudi regime will suffer from these painful operations if it continues its aggression and siege on Yemen,” noting that “the armed forces will reveal the details of the wide and qualitative military operation in the coming days.”

    On March 26, the leader of the Ansarallah Movement revealed in a speech marking the fifth anniversary of the Yemen war, that “the sixth year of the aggression will witness surprises that were not taken into account by the enemy.” He explained that “our people must trust the relief and the victory of God, and that patience has a happy consequence determined by God Almighty.”

    Iranian are not arabs. They are very well trained and smart people and houtis directly benefits from them. Arab "coalition" is full of mercenaries (poor people) that have no choice but be there and pretty much untrained.

    I regret they die there for nothing but they are in desperate situation that they can't say no to that money which is mostly send to their families.

    All that money thrown in f-15 and missiles could have helped them much more than giving it to Trump and lockeed martin.

    You don't need "Iranian experience" to direct mortars on a specific location , even small groups in libya ,terrorists in Sinai and Hamas are doing that perfectly , Alqaeda used it properly against USSR and US forces , most of them were very smart in their attack tactics.

    Everyone has his own mind and ability , Egypt in 1973 war destroyed most of Israel tanks and aircrafts ( backed by US army directly ) using mixed tactics , of course despite the Israelis had better aircraft/tank range and firepower .

    About 140 aircrafts using only Russian SAMs. In one air-air battle (Air battle of Mansoura) Israel attacked EAF airports using 164 aircrafts (F-4 Phantom and Skyhawk ) , Egypt sent 62 MIG-21 and the battle lasts for 53 minutes which was considered one of the 6 biggest air battles around the world .

    In that battle IAF lost 17 aircrafts , Egyptian AF lost 6 .

    Pollack said only about 33 or so.

    Yeah he also said in his book (The Threatening Storm) " the only prudent and realistic course of action left to the United States is to mount a full-scale invasion of Iraq to smash the Iraqi armed forces, depose Saddam's regime, and rid the country of weapons of mass destruction " . Smile

    This former CIA is just a liar . before war ,all reports from west said Egypt would lose half of her army if tried to cross Bar Lev Line that described as "one of the best anti-tank ditches in the world , impregnable and was a symbol of Israeli military perfection .

    But guess what ,Egypt first wave was 220 aircrafts to destroy all defensive points behind the line (including HAWK missiles,artillery,tanks ,,etc) ,and EAF lost only 5 aircrafts ( one of them the pilot was the brother of president Anwar Al sadat , they told him your brother has died ) .Also 2,000 artillery pieces opened massive fire against all the strong points along the Bar-Lev Line, a barrage that lasted 53 minutes and dropped 10,500 shells in the first minute alone, or 175 shells per second.

    And because this first wave destroyed 90 of the targets , so the second wave was cancelled and troops start crossing the Suez Canal to open openings in Bar Lev Line using water cannons fashioned from hoses attached to dredging pumps in the canal ,five of which could blast 1,500 cubic meters of sand in three hours , simple idea .

    Pollack said that the second wave was cancelled because the high loss of the first wave  Rolling Eyes

    Even Israelis said they lost some aircrafts ( of course not 17 but less ) , he is saying no sign although farmers tried to kill isreali piolts whose aircrafts shoot down . If they didn't face any losses so why IAF gave up targeting major air bases by October 15 , one day after the battle  Smile and why Egypt's "Air Force Day" was changed from November 2 to October 14 to commemorate the air battle.

    For those quoting western sources as being reliable... then they are also saying Iraq had WMDs and of course Russia is invading the Ukraine and all the other shit the west asserts as true... or highly likely...

    Saudi-backed forces suffer heavy losses in failed northern Yemen offensive

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 P.M.) – For the second day in a row, the Ansarallah-aligned Yemeni Armed Forces have announced that their troops have repelled the Saudi-backed Hadi loyalists and Islah militia in the Al-Jawf and Marib governorates.

    The spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier-General. Yahya Sari’a, said in a statement on his Facebook page, “Our forces were able to address two large attacks towards the Majzar district in the Marib Governorate that lasted for several hours, and the other towards the Khub and Al Sha’af districts in the governorate of Al-Jawf.”

    According to Brigadier-General Sari’a, “a number of armored vehicles were destroyed, and dozens were killed and wounded in the ranks of the enemy, who made no progress.”

    He pointed out, “The aggression’s warplanes launched 33 raids during the past 24 hours, including 21 raids on the districts of Majzar and Sorouh in Marib, 3 raids on the Khub and Al Sha’af districts in Al-Jawf, and 6 raids on the border area of ​​Al-Malahidh in the Sa’ada Governorate opposite of Saudi Arabia’s Jizan province.

    Suspect they have just mounted the turret on there without the autoloader. I seem to remember a few countries having problems with the autoloader and just resorting to loading by hand instead. The rounds are long but not particularly heavy...


    Would be a useful weapon mount... it is very much like a super RPG-7... the warhead is smaller than current RPG-7 rockets (93mm and 105mm mostly these days), but the rocket motor is full 73mm calibre compared with the RPG-7s 40mm tube so it is effective to longer ranges...

    Basically a mobile SPG-9 recoilless rifle but with no back blast issues...

    Personally I would prefer it on something that was armoured... perhaps a BTR-80 modification will give wheeled mobility and some small arms protection...

    Still I suppose beggars can't be choosers...

    Saudi and UAE-backed forces clash in southern Yemen as tensions run high

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The Saudi and UAE-backed forces in southern Yemen clashed on Monday, as tensions between the former allies continue to increase each day.

    According to reports from southern Yemen, the Saudi-backed Yemeni Army and UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council clashed inside the Shaqra area of the Abyan Governorate; this would result in casualties on both sides.

    For its part, Yemeni media sources stated that the Saud-backed forces entered the Abyan Governorate center at dawn on Monday and that the Southern Transitional Council forces withdrew.

    The Southern Transitional Council affirmed in a statement that the government forces launched an attack this morning against its forces in the Abyan Governorate, accusing the government of “sparking a new conflict … after months of breaches and attacks it carried out without justification.”

    The Council reaffirmed the importance of the “Riyadh Agreements” and the “pivotal role of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a leader of the Arab Coalition,” and noted its commitment to peace efforts while preserving the right “to defend oneself, land and supply, and to fight terrorism and extremism.”

    These latest clashes come just a week after the Saudi-backed forces withdrew from Socotra Island off the coast of Yemen.
