Destruction of an Iranian-made UAV by F-15 aircraft of the Saudi Air Force is shown

12
A video has been posted online showing how the Saudi Arabian Air Force F-15 Eagle fighter patches an Iranian-made drone when patrolling. It is alleged that this is a Qasef-2K unmanned aerial vehicle.





These Drones Recently, armed groups of the Houthis have been actively used in the airspace of Yemen. The same drones also end up in Saudi Arabian airspace. Not so long ago, it was Qasef-2K that was used to strike at military personnel who were preparing for a military parade in Aden, Yemen. In addition to representatives of the Yemeni Armed Forces, military personnel from Saudi Arabia were also supposed to take part in the parade.

The footage shows how the F-15 Eagle catches an unmanned aerial vehicle in sight, after which it strikes. Probably, the destruction of an Iranian-made drone occurred with the use of an air-to-air missile. The video shows how after a missile hits a drone turns into a cloud of debris.



About exactly where the Qasef-2K drone was destroyed was not initially reported. This could happen both over the territory of Saudi Arabia and in the airspace of Yemen, where Saudi aviation used for several years. After some time, the Saudi Arabian Air Force stated that the UAV was destroyed in the sky over Yemen.

      Interesting and beautiful shots ... but

      It is perfectly visible that the aiming goes to "heat", and why is not "heat of the rocket" visible? Maybe they shot down from the cannon?

        Maybe they still shot down a gun?

        come on. From a cannon to hit such a slow and small target oh how not easy. The length of this UAV is about 2 meters in total.

          And nevertheless, I did not see the "heat" of the rocket, but the "heat" of the UAV is visible all the time ... Maybe you examined it?

            The video shows how a very fast object flies on the right side, there is no thermal trace because the stage of the rocket propulsion engine has worked, the rocket flies using the stored energy

        Most likely there was a duty patrol

          Surprisingly, this time the drone was not slammed. Here the other day, the Hussites using UAVs attacked the oil infrastructure facilities in the territory of the SA, which were 750 miles (1200 km.) From the territory controlled by the Hussites. So the Saudis flew in with a fright.

        Imagine the situation that due to artillery correction from the UAV the tank was destroyed. The price of the Sidewinder is about US $ 120 thousand, plus US $ 8 thousand. Departure of the Eagle, the cost of Abrams, depending on the modifications - from 4 to 8 million. US $. In your opinion, which way is it more profitable to save?

      Again, the Saudis are not counted as a drone, and the pilot from the U.S. will record as Iranian)

      what stupid person will lift the F-15 to intercept the drone? Conventional anti-aircraft artillery works.
