Saudi Air Defense Intercepted Another Hussite Missile

22
Saudi Arabian air defense and missile defense forces destroyed a ballistic missile launched by Yemeni Hussite rebels in the Djizan region, where the facilities of the state-owned oil company Saudi Arabian Oil Co. are located. (Saudi Aramco) transmits RIA News Post channel Al Arabiya.




All the company's facilities, including those in Jizan, are safe and functioning normally,
Saudi Aramco said after the incident.

Recall that at the end of March, two American-made MIM-104C Patriot PAC-2 SAM anti-missiles launched by the Saudi military broke down during the launch of a missile attack, one exploded in the air after launch, the other fell in a residential area. At the same time, the Arab coalition stated that it was not the American rocket that fell in the village, but “fragments of Yemen’s shells”.

The armed conflict in Yemen continues with the 2014 year. On the one hand, the Hussite rebels take part in it, on the other hand, government troops and militia members loyal to President Mansur Hadi. The pro-presidential forces are supported by the Arab coalition, led by Saudi Arabia. In response, the Hussites launch rockets regularly at Saudi targets.

      It's simple: the missile did not hit the target, then they declare it shot down.

        There is another question: "Was there a boy, that is, a start?"

          There is no such question! Since the patriot pulnuli, then the launch was. Try to prove the opposite. laughing

    Did the MIM-104C work again? Where is ERINT - which is just more for missile defense? Really did not sell to the Saudis, no matter what the reason to try it? MIM-104 generally does not have to work on ballistics, as it were, this is an additional function.

    The problem with the Hussite missiles is that they do not reach, not the air defense of these powdered.

      The fact is that the “Hussites" are now flapping Iranian missiles, behind the launches of which are Iranian experts who are working on improving the missiles. So there is a double benefit; - bringing the missiles "to mind" and the ability to nightmare their geopolitical opponents.

    ... one exploded in the air after launch, the other fell in a residential area
    Claims of American technology, of course, will not be? In words everyone intercepts, nothing flies, but in reality? At the same time, the Hussites silently, without a pump, do their job.

      Husits ​​are handsome ladies, of course, but air-to-air missiles from the ground to land on the ground cause respect. The PENTAGON envy the free approach to physics and aerodynamics. So simply solved problems they did not dream of. But in defense of the Pentagon, I’ll still say that they did not strive for such - $ 100, $ 150, decisions. To the superman, dollars so under a trillion prospect only begins to be seen.

    Maybe they shot down, or maybe there was no missile attack .. Go check in the Arabian sands. But noble PR, especially when Erdogan is persuaded by 400 matches not to buy ..

      So yes, you can shoot down ten missiles per day. Present the wreckage every time, they have a lot of them.

          then already the stench would have been to the whole universe .. the Saudis are crammed with Amer’s weapons, do not indulge in it at all, and would calculate such a complex at a time ...

            In modern warfare, American weapons, like some other models, for example, Hussite ones, can also pump up, if something is not taken into account, and in a series. Would you calculate what the cubes were pulnul, and what to do? It's no secret that huge tracts of land today may turn out to be a three-dimensional illusion. American warships have identified themselves in terrain for hundreds of kilometers from their real location.

          You need to coordinate - they launch, and ours fall

      The question is well posed. In the light of the story with skripals, I also ask myself a question: were they even poisoned by low-quality hot dogs?

    Does it not seem to me alone that the "decisive successes of the Patriot" have become frequent lately, like news from the Saudi-Hussite fronts, where the devil will break his leg and where everything is unprovable? In light of the fact that the vaunted “Patriot” agreed to purchase “sovereign” Poland, but does not want Erdogan, clouded by Kremlin propaganda, China is completely determined and India is defined.
