    The drone is quite compact and should have smaller IR signature than other drones like TB2.

    I'm impressed that an old r-60 missile can down it.

    Russia should start exporting more of modern IR missiles. They should also create a system that uses r-60/73 missiles.

    Sosna-R and the 57mm AA system will be very deadly. Impossible to jamm or evade once in the engagement zone.

    Countries like Armenia or Syria should ask for such system.

    Radar system often give their position away to enemy RWR.

    We don't know if it did. Might be completely unrelated.

    Also there is video out there claiming that a 2K12 Kub medium-range SAM system belonging to Houthis was destoyed in airstrikes around Marib.

    First of all I didn't say that there are muslim countries flying the F-15. I said pilots are imported from those countries. If USAF F-16 pilots are also flying F-15s, if Russian AF Mig 29 SMT pilots are also flying Su 30SM why can't F-16 pilots of muslim states fly Saudi F-15s.

    Re training, if Saudis are indeed so very well trained why do they keep on signing agreements with muslim states like Pakistan to deploy their military in Saudi Arabia?

    USAF operates both f-16 and f-15. Russia operates both mig-29 and su-30. So they can tfain their pilots on both.

    How would arab states train their f-16 pilots on f-15 that they don't operate ?

    Saudi arabia has pilots for their f-15 and they were trained gor years on f-15. Why would they pay untrained pilots to fly it ?

    They make agrerments with other states to deploy their soldiers their to have a "coalition" and not be alone in Yemen. That helps at UN. They certainly won't let a pakistani pilot trained on f-16 fly a f-15 that he never touched.

    The Zulfiqar missile, about which you have heard a lot during the past months, has repeatedly targeted the depths of Saudi Arabia with a range of more than a thousand kilometers and has dealt heavy blows to the enemy.

    Did I suggest that Arab states were training their pilots on F-15s that they never acquired? I said Saudis import Air Force officers are from muslim countries. If they are not trained to fly F-15 or Typhoon or whatever fighter jets the Saudis operate they are trained for that in Saudi Arabia.

    Being experienced pilots they need only a few months of training compared to years of training that a rookie pilot would need. Furthermore, locals of most prosperous arab states hesitate to join the military especially in active combat role.  That's why these states rely on immigrants for almost everything.

    Is it just me or is the Marib front pretty much stagnant?

    Have been reading BREAKING!!1 reports from pro-Ansarallah accounts for 4-6 weeks now but according to the maps they have barely gotten any closer to the city. They were 7-10 kms away back then and still seem to be at that distance. Same for the road that leads to the city from the south.

    Have also been reading 'reports' on the test use of TB2's in and around Marib, for what it's worth

    You are correct. This front is the battle for control of Yemen, when the Saudis lose it it is effectively over. Hence the slugitoutfest.

    As the center of Yemen oil and gas, Marib is absolutely vital so both sides are putting everything they can into the front. As a consequence ground is changing hands many times with high ground especially valuable due to the use of traditional eyeballs as a major source of targeting data, in what is a fairly low tech fight over very rough, hilly, desert countryside.

    The Saudis are roping in every mercenary that they can pay from all over the ME and east Africa, so when a new batch arrive they have a short lived success. There are rumours that several hundred Syrian terrorists are on their way. But it is only the Yemeni Army/Houtis that are fighting for their country. Most if not all of the local Marib tribes seem to have done pre-deals to try to ensure that the city is not destroyed.

    The Saudis have their fighter bombers which they use a lot of, sometimes hitting their own troops with co-ordinates supplied by 'traitors/heroes'. Their Apaches are conspicuous by their absence, perhaps due to the MANPAD danger. Their drones are regularly shot down.

    Conversely, the Yemini Army, well supplied with intelligence, targets meetings and assemblies with very well aimed ballistic missiles.

    Contrary to the Saudis' claim, the Yemeni army's drone strike on a refinery near the Saudi capital on Friday morning caused severe damage and effectively shut down the Aramco Riyadh refinery.

    Of course, it seems that the Yemenis do not intend to completely destroy the facilities and are only sending warning signals to Riyadh that they are open to attacking oil, gas, petrochemical facilities, as well as power plants and other vital and important facilities of Saudia, and if they If they want to make a fuss in this area and attack the industrial facilities in Marib province, the retaliatory operations of the Yemenis will be painful and irreparable.

    It is the most accurate and wisest offensive, influential operation of a very harsh strategic nature that the capital of the Saudi enemy has been subjected to.
