Do not reach the target: the Saudis destroyed missiles launched from Yemen

35
The Patriot air defense system of Saudi Arabia destroyed in the air two ballistic missiles launched in Najran province by Yemeni insurgents from the Ansar alla movement (the Hussites), reports RIA News the message of the Saudi edition Al-Adzhil.




According to the information, "the missiles were launched from a place near the city of Sa'ad in the north of Yemen, they were able to shoot down immediately at the moment of penetration into Saudi airspace." There are no victims and destructions.

In turn, the Hussites, through their Saba agency, reported that the targets of the missiles were "economic objects" located in the Saudi province of Najran.

Recall that since 2015, Saudi Arabia, as part of the Arab coalition, has been involved in operations against the Hussites in Yemen on the side of the government of Abd Mansur Hadi. In response, the rebels regularly bombard the kingdom with ballistic missiles.

      It’s time for the Hussites to adjust something more modern, in the form of the Kyrgyz Republic, for the ballistic Iranian or Soviet ones are already knocking everyone down. Here's a friendship to drop Iran’s export license for the Kyrgyz Republic. With the situation in Syria, this had to be done much earlier. For a long time, Iran, like China, will be the enemy of the United States, and therefore our ally ...

      That is, they knock down most of the goals but not all. And this has always been honestly said.
      For this, Americans are believed and for this, petriots and other weapons are bought from them.

            According to US President Donald Trump, it was the American system that successfully coped with the task. “That's what we are capable of. No one can produce what we do. And we also sell it all over the world,” he said.

        Did American Missile Defense Fail in Saudi Arabia?
        By MAX FISHER, ERIC SCHMITT, AUDREY CARLSEN and MALACHY BROWNE DEC. 4, 2017
        The official story was clear: Saudi forces shot down a ballistic missile fired by Yemen's Houthi rebel group last month at Saudi Arabia's capital, Riyadh. It was a victory for the Saudis and for the United States, which supplied the Patriot missile defense system
        https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/12/04/wo
        rld / middleeast / saudi-missile-defense.html
        The publication also writes that the US government has already overestimated the effectiveness of Patriot. So, during the Gulf War, the Pentagon reported on the almost 17% defeat of Soviet-made R-XNUMX Iraqi missiles. However, later there was information that all attempts to intercept missiles failed.

    But what is the point of launching 1-2 rockets from time to time, which are intercepted by patriots? Would it be more logical to have more at once? Or they don’t have the goal now to inflict any significant damage to the enemy.

    What a mania for any shushar something to "customize" and "throw off." Let’s give them “Poplars” with nuclear charges, hoping that they will not shandrah at us later. Or "spite grandmother frostbitten ears"? Once against KSA, and KSA is an ally of the United States - does it mean that Hussites need to supply something ???

    And as for the Kyrgyz Republic, Iran, teach the materiel. They have already been around for 20 years as there is an analogue of our X-55 cruise missile. So, Ukraine also “pulled” a few pieces to them under the guise, and they started releasing it ... So it happened that our Transcaucasian “friends” plus the entire Southern Military District at the sight of these missiles. And above the sea, and at an altitude of ten meters from the surface (especially against the background of the coast) - they also need to be detected

    And you will not find NONE anti-aircraft missile system, which would bring down ALL GOALS. Each has its own probability of hitting targets, incl. and our S-300 and S-400.
    And most often it’s not a weapon, not whose one it is, but who uses it. If “hands grow from one place”, then give such a fighter at least a “Patriot”, even though the S-400 may miss the target. And give to others - they will shoot down within the limits of acceptable probability

    And check it out soon. Here we put the S-400 there, and these woeful warriors will begin to smear from it. What will we say then? What is the C-400 to blame or these fighters? So with the Patriot, you should not consider everyone who bought this weapon dumb. Over the nearly 30 years that have passed since the Desert Storm, the complex has been repeatedly modernized, but we are always pleased to recall its failures in 1991. And this is the only complex of this class that has been tested by military operations. Neither our "three hundred" nor our "four hundred" participated in the hostilities. And how the Turks, Saudis, and Iranians will work with her, is not yet known

    Not so much. Please note that such launches are not even a weekly event. Husites launch several missiles once a month, or even two.
    As for the missiles themselves, these are mainly Iranian or the missiles themselves, or Yemeni crafts based on these missiles. They give them their names and then from a pint you won’t understand what it is. And if the same Iranians have a somewhat incomprehensible name for the system, but are rather slender, then for the Hussites one missile can be called Burkan-1 / Volcan-1 and be the Yemeni craft of the Iranian Tondar-69, created on the basis of the Chinese air defense system HQ-2 (Chinese version of S-75), and the second. - Burkan-2N / Volcano-2 - already on the basis of the Iranian Shahab-2
