    News - Yemen: The Air Force of the Yemeni Army and Popular Committees has carried out drone attacks against Jizan Airport in Saudi Arabia with a number of drones.
    The spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e, said in a statement that Yemeni Air Forces accurately hit Fighter Jets' Hangers at Jizan Airport with drones, Qasef 2K.

    He explained that the operation of targeting the enemy's Fighter Jets' Hangers comes within the legitimate response to the continuation of the aggression and the siege on our country.

    Earlier on Wednesday night, Yemeni Air Force targeted King Khalid Air Base in the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait, some 884 kilometers south of the Saudi capital Riyadh, in retaliation for the Saudi regime’s ongoing military aggression and blockade against the country.

    Yemen’s Air Force has stepped up the retaliatory attacks on Saudi Arabia in recent months, saying the strikes will continue as long as Riyadh carries on with its airstrikes and blockade.

    The best air defense is destroying enemy fighter jets in their air base...

    Doubtful. The Houthies are aligned with Iran, and the zionists want the saudis to normalize relations with them.

    Saudi Arabia is looking for new air defense systems.

    According to Fars, military sources in Saudi Arabia said Riyadh sent a delegation to European countries and the United States to search for a modern and practical air defense system.

    It is reported that due to the ineffectiveness of existing air defense systems in the face of missile and unmanned strikes by the army and people's committees of Yemen, the military delegation of Saudi Arabia is trying to select systems with tracking, missile launch and command center to be able to counter the military threat from Yemen.

    The Russians can supply defensive equipment to Saudi. They are in a better position than Americans, regarding relations with Iran. They could guarantee with this sale that no attacks takes place on Saudi. The Americans can not and will not do that. Quite the reverse. They could do this on condition of lifting of blockade by Saudi and stopping their airstrikes too. Simply selling systems ( unconditionally) will only prolong the war.

    GarryB wrote:From that article you would think Saudi Arabia is fine and protected from drones and cruise missiles.

    The reality is that Patriot comes in two forms... two very very expensive forms... PAC-2 for normal aircraft, including low flying targets and high flying targets, and PAC-3 for very high speed ballistic targets.

    The PAC-3 is more expensive than PAC-2 and PAC-2 is very expensive... neither one would be sensible for use against drones let alone cruise missiles simply because it would be like ploughing a field using a 20 million dollar Rolls Royce.

    Even printing your own free money doesn't make it affordable... and if you think the solution is C RAM...

    a 20mm gatling gun blasing away 20mm cannon shells at 4,500rpm over a radius of 3-4km is probably going to do more damage than the drones can.

    Even the 12.7mm DU rounds that penetrate the drones completely will be dangerous to any targets anywhere near the gun mount... the vast majority that miss will have even more range and energy to do damage to anything they hit... do you really want that in your oil refinery.

    A human asset can plot the locations of all the gun mounts and all the hardware being defended... it actually might be worth sending drones between the gun mounts and important stuff and try to get the guns to fire and damage the refinery... if the drone can get between the refinery and the gun mount it could fly towards the gun mount and blow it up. The only way the gun could defend itself is open fire and do serious damage to the equipment and buildings it is supposed to be defending...

    The C-Ram uses a certain type of 20mm round which self destructs after 2,300m which was designed specifically to stop the rounds landing elsewhere causing damaging. Mapping fire even with 7.62mm was pretty devastating, I remember when our machine gun platoon did mapping fire and cows wandering into the fire zone and farmer went nuts 8 dead cows but nobody knew untill farmer next day came the range control, he was compensated but that's life. Anyway 2.3km means Ur target had to be within that range and with gaps identified if a skilled drone operator or cruise missile exploits those gaps they are toast

    Either the gloves are off or saturation attack to get through the upgraded defences. Incidentally concern is growing regarding the number of Patriots falling into residential areas.

    Does anyone know the new twitter handle of Spriters?

    Despite his obvious sensationalism and tendency to report stuff he couldn't possibly know (unless he's continued to military intelligence) I always enjoyed his hard work and meticulous attitude

    Anyone knows if he has a new twitter account?

    The accumulated costs of these attacks are starting to mount up.

    That was a serious criminal offence putting those two videos out.

    It looks like the Patriot, and its the second video showing the same thing I've see, has a self destruct mode when it gets to close to land. If over a city it just scatters debris over a bigger area.

    Maybe the Saudis realised the inevitable outcome of their war in Yemen, to be the sectarian fragmentation of their own country. Here they have to take this war to their own people. No win for them.

    https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/en.mehrnews.com/amp/172496/

    The temporary solution is :

    ( 1 ) The lifting of blockade for delivery of UN and other food aid.

    ( 2 ) Stopping any advances on the ground  and Bombardment.

    Long term solution :

    ( 3 ) Political talks on formation of autonomous Republics. Federal Republic.

    The demarcation line could be based on previous division between North and South Yemen. QED.
