There were reports that the Hornites shot down a Saudi Arabian Air Force Tornado plane

41

Arab-speaking media confirm that the Saudi Air Force lost the Tornado fighter-bomber. According to recent reports, the plane crashed in the Yemeni province of Al-Jawf (border governorate).

The reports said that the fighter-bomber was lifted into the air the night before to strike at the infrastructure used by representatives of the Ansar Allah armed groups (the group is better known as the Husits). During the operation, communication with the pilot was lost. Subsequently, the loss of the Tornado became known.



The materials say that the plane was shot down by the Hussites. It is stated that a ground-to-air missile was used to strike a Saudi Arabian air force aircraft. What kind of missile is in question and whether it was related to one of the portable anti-aircraft missile systems is not reported.

The press secretary of the so-called Arab coalition (acting in Yemen against the Hussites) stated that "they are praying for the pilots." At this moment, there is no data on the fate of the crew of the fighter-bomber. According to unconfirmed reports, the pilot was injured and captured.

For reference: Saudi Arabian Air Force has more than 100 Tornado aircraft of various modifications.

            Hmm. Duc sort of like the Saudis proactively and with the war pinned themselves to Yemen, and not the Houthis in Saudi Arabia. These "Basmachi" are fighting on their land.

              So against the legitimate government of Yemen. It seems like in Syria, other basmachi against Assad. The same thugs and suicide bombers. Or someone is rooting for Dynamo, and someone for Spartak ??

              So it seems like the Saudis, on an initiative basis and with war, pinned into Yemen


              Duc at the request of the legitimate government of the Sunni majority. Together with the emirates and Egypt. Fight terrorists. Like us in Syria. laughing

                In Syria, the anti-Assad coalition from 60 countries noted in favor of the "Basmachis" to divide Syria, and Iran and Russia were harnessed for Assad to preserve its statehood. Here the Saudis also harnessed to divide Yemen, and the Houthis seem to be against it.

        In my opinion the video is already there. The link is below.
        According to Al-Alam news agency, Yemeni press secretary Yahya al-Sari said that the fighter was shot down by a modernized ground-to-air missile equipped with new technologies.

      Probably there are no normal bombing systems if they fly low. A modern attack aircraft (fighter) -bomber, steeper than a hundred times during the war, due to the power and accuracy of the use of weapons. Arabs are not modern enough, and not bad.

        If there were 27, then do not fly, there’s enough range, but you don’t need to point it, there is IR guidance.
        But the Tornado is precisely a bomber, a fighter from its seams, so the guidance systems and sighting system are in order there. It is at the level of the MiG-29.

          If the Jordanians still had air defense systems capable of taking higher than MANPADS, they would not have been there. Here is the Mig-29 of modern modernization, although it’s not an attack aircraft, will not miss the freely falling ammunition (not adjustable) and from ten thousand meters, where it has any MANPADS on the drum.

      It only shows that Iran is stronger and more adamant than many believe.
      For the Saudis, everything that happens has far-reaching consequences, one of the allies has already "reeled off the fishing rods", mercenaries from Sudan are also returning, the border areas with Yemen and all oil-bearing regions of Saudi Arabia are places where Shiite Islam is spread, and the current is exactly the same as in Iran ( Twelver Shiites) among its population, and Shiites are not only the support of Iran, but also the traditional opposition, whether or not Iran. What the execution of the local sheikh Nimr al-Nimr cost was not forgotten, and coupled with the possible final defeat in Yemen, the Saudis will hiccup more than once.

      The downed plane is a sign that it will not be possible to realize superiority in the air and technology and that you need to fight "with your feet walking on the ground" there are huge contradictions among the majority.
      You need to understand that most of the Arab monarchies are artificial, remake, and therefore local kings, padishahi shahs, and kings do not sit so firmly. And in almost all the richest monarchies there is a problem of contradiction with the Shiites, and in some Shiites the majority or somewhere half of the population. Iraq, Syria, Yemen it is quite possible that to be continued ...
