Saudi Abrams are shot down in Yemen

34
The next video of the destruction in Yemen appeared on the web tank Abrams Saudi Army from anti-tank complex, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




In the explanation to the video says that the shooting was made on the border of Yemen and Saudi Arabia in the sector of Jizan.

“During the battle, two Saudi soldiers were killed by the rebels, the bulldozer and the M1-X2 Abrams tank were destroyed,” the annotation says.

The footage shows how a guided anti-tank missile is flying toward the Abrams. Then there is an explosion, and the car is hidden in clouds of smoke and dust.



However, users doubt that the tank was completely destroyed by an ATGM rocket. The main argument indicates that the fire in the combat vehicle is not shown.

The newspaper notes that in Yemen, the rebels have burned and knocked down more than a dozen Saudi "Abrams". Also large losses of such cars were recorded in Iraq. As a result, the Iraqi authorities purchased a consignment of T-90 tanks in Russia, which is evidence of the high reliability and effectiveness of Russian armored vehicles.

    Yes, most likely not hit. The protection worked, and there was no kind of fire. Although the record ends ...

        The main thing for Americans to sell a tank. And what will happen to him next is not important. Since the warranty is lifetime - if the tank is destroyed, then the warranty ends smile

      The Abrams (the Saudic versions) have no side protection.
      Surely there was a break. The sides are very frail. But there is no detonation. Since the shells
      are in a crazy basket.

        most likely, due to dust, it was hit in the engine compartment

          Well, I saw that during the explosion there a rather big chunk of which flew upwards, so the minimum was out of order

        Actually, there is a lot of information about the losses of Abrasheks in Iraq, google to help, and the purchase of our T-90s is completely official information.

      Protection against a fool? The abrams has neither dynamic nor active protection. Arrived from behind, straight into the combat unit. Hiroshima was supposed to be.

    Let's refrain from pompous statements so far Iraq is purchasing the T-90 mainly due to more affordable prices and lower operating costs.
    Further time will tell.
    Still, they don’t throw cucumbers at the tanks, but shoot quite serious anti-tank systems of Soviet, Israeli, Chinese and American production.
    In this case, you just need to very closely monitor the statistics and make appropriate organizational conclusions using various technical solutions and improvements, like in Syria, but it doesn’t sound like it, but today Iraq and Syria are the most important testing ground for weapons in real combat use , and if statistics on the Abrams are already collected, then regarding the T-90 it’s still only at the beginning of the journey.
    Let's hope our tanks are better.

      I think the relevant statistics are kept by interested structures. And with it, including help, then the corresponding TK are issued

    I think to break through, then they struck, maybe even someone was killed, the side is always weaker than the forehead, but there was no fire and detonation, apparently there was little or no ammunition in the tower, judging by the video, there used to be at least a video from the inside of Abrams, well, the pictures ... And here most likely he left on his own.

    What protection is there? There is no active defense or active defense .... only the combined armor of the tower ...
    Most likely the penetration was but the ammunition did not detonate.

    Ai-ai-ai, how bad, in a peaceful Srailian tank on Lebanese land, and an ATGM. This is the Holocaust
