Husites knocked out Abrams tank in Saudi Arabia

35
Representatives of the armed Hussite formations destroyed the tank of Saudi troops in Saudi territory. According to the Huthit command, the Abrams tank was located a few hundred meters from the territory of Yemen and was ready to fire. As a result, the Hussites were the first to fire, and the Abrams, who was in the province of Jizan (Saudi Arabia), was destroyed by an anti-tank missile system.




The command of the armed forces of Saudi Arabia reports that the shelling by the Houthis led to the death of the 4's soldiers. Also added that two more people were injured and were taken to the nearest hospital.

This is far from the first loss tank "Abrams" by the armed forces of Saudi Arabia. However, before this attack on the armored vehicles of the kingdom, most often were carried out on the territory of Yemen, which is occupied by the Saudi army. Recently, the Hussites have stepped up shelling of Saudi territory, using ballistic missiles. Not so long ago, several such missiles were attacked by Riyadh, and then Patriot air defense systems worked, to put it mildly, not in the best way for the Saudis.

    And the Saudis also want to Syria ... they would regret their wives and mothers, as they would live without men.

      It is not customary to ask women there, and those who decide it themselves will not climb into the trenches. To do this, there are a bunch of migrants who can be put under arms.

        Warriors from Arabs ... Like a bullet from recyclables. They that the USSR gave tanks-burned that the United States. The main thing in the tank is the crew.

          Arabs know how to fight, but do not know how to fight (Lawrence of Arabia). True, Lawrence did not even try to plant Arabs on tanks. laughing

      "Abrams", located in the province of Jizan (Saudi Arabia), was destroyed by ATGM.

    The Saudis are lounging on the sly despite their equipment with modern types of weapons. In this war, it is clearly visible that the fighter with the "core inside" is stronger than any full-armed soldier.

      In addition to the "core inside" the fighter and weapons need the appropriate. One "core" "abrams" can’t be matched ...

    Saudis, and even on Abrams, again absolute confidence in their inaccessibility !!! But no, as it turned out, and the crew was not prepared, and the automation failed. Everything is as it is, without embellishment.

    This is very mildly said, but roughly speaking, they worked x (peak, peak). Now, their calculations and the people around me, before each launch, they will pray for the “glorified” mattress weapon not to spread into the trash both the launcher itself and all the sheds nearby. belay

    In general, the Anglo-Saxons do not know how to make tank weapons .. Here are the AUG and the “axes” so that they can’t fight from far away!

      Come on, how then did the Centurions and Shermans “lower” the T-55, IS-3 and T-62, and the Merkava, Challengers and Abrams T-62 and T-72 of the Republican Guard and the Chinese Type-69. They don’t know how at all.

      Ahem ... the slippery topic of determining the effectiveness of weapons based on their use by the Arabs is better not to raise. And then with such a technique it turns out that the USSR did not know how to make weapons at all - relying on the results of all the Arab-Israeli wars and Desert Storm. wink

      Javelin is not delivered to Ukraine to raise morale. This is a really dangerous weapon. In truth, Stugna and I are pretty good, but I didn’t shoot, I forgot. The bad thing is that the US oligarchs stand and make pennies on this ....

        Regarding Stugna .. is it a product of the military-industrial complex of Ukraine? Doesn’t inspire confidence, sorry hi

          Stugna together with Belarus development (project HIERARDS). It was adopted even during the bloody regime of Yanukovych in the amount of 10 pieces (launchers). In 79 airmobile brigade. The use was and continues in the Donbass war. System at the Cornet level. Do not underestimate the military-industrial complex of Ukraine - with proper funding, projects go into series. For example, electronic warfare systems - ANKLAV2 - at least.

    Abrams, democratic Abrams !!!!, I would even say liberal democratic Abrams, privatized, and creatively constructed, knocked out by some kind of cultural identity ATGM? I don’t believe my eyes. Apparently the monarchist Arabs screwed up, the only explanation.

    And how could these Hussites dare? To knock out the best tank of the millennium and, I suppose, a sandal from a slingshot? No respect at all
