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


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.

        Islamic fanatics from the Zaydite Shiite group are already our best friends. Are they different from ISIS? Are you a fan of basmachi?

          Hm. Duc seems to be like the Saudis, on an initiative basis and with war, pinned into Yemen, and not the Hussites 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 ??

              In Syria, an anti-Assad coalition of 60 countries has been in favor of the Basmachis to divide Syria, and Iran and Russia have harnessed to Assad to maintain its statehood. Here the Saudis, too, harnessed themselves to divide Yemen, and the Hussites seemed to be against it.

      it is the Hussites who work like that, and now you can imagine how it will be for example in Belarus (I live in Minsk), in the same place the invaders, as in a kindergarten, will be built for movement

      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.

    The Hussites still have enough targets to fill their hands and eyes! More than 100 are only tornadoes, and besides them there are others. ..

    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.

      Judging by the video, P-73 was brought through the heat channel. And did not fall into the trap.

    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 “rolled fishing rods”, mercenaries from Sudan are also returning, the border regions with Yemen and all oil-bearing regions of Saudi Arabia are places of Shiite Islam spread, and the currents are exactly the same as in Iran ( double-Shiites) among its population, and Shiites are not only the support of Iran, but also the traditional opposition, whether or not to become Iran. What did the execution of the local sheikh Nimr al-Nimr cost, it is not forgotten, and, together with a possible final defeat in Yemen, the Saudis will repeatedly stumble.

    A downed plane is a sign that it’s not possible to realize superiority in air and technology and you need to fight with “legs walking on the ground,” but the Saudis are not going smoothly, and part of the population, as the Shiites wrote above, may be a minority, but 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 ...
