American command: The Houthis tried to attack the destroyer USS Carney, which was escorting a ship with military cargo in the Red Sea

An American warship became the target of an attack by an unmanned aerial vehicle. The American press claims that the drone belonged to the Houthis and was launched from the coastal zone of Yemen.

At the time of the attack, the US Navy warship, the guided-missile destroyer USS Carney, was in the Red Sea, where it was sent “to support Israel.”



American sources claim that a KAS-04 attack drone, “made in Iran,” was approaching the destroyer. The drone did not reach the warship directly - it was shot down by the USS Carney ship's air defense system.

The information is confirmed by the US Central Command. It is reported that the destroyer was sailing in a group with the operational maritime support ship USNS Supply, as well as with an auxiliary vessel, on board which “was carrying military cargo.” It can be assumed that we are talking about weapons for Israel and that this particular ship was the real target of the drone attack. Although the American command claims that the destroyer was the target.

Earlier, Military Review reported that the Houthis threaten American and Israeli ships with “crossfire” when they pass in the waters near the Yemeni coast. By “crossfire”, presumably, we mean a simultaneous attack by several (at least two) drones, released from different points. In this case, we are still talking about one drone.

According to the US naval command, none of the US Navy ships were damaged.

        Such attacks are an excellent opportunity to test a ship's air defense in combat conditions.
        Both against drones and against the Kyrgyz Republic,
        and against ballistic targets.
        The Americans should pay the Houthis extra for such exercises. laughing

        It's a pity that the drone didn't make it.

          Single targets don't stand a chance and don't develop stripes' skills much.

          But the Jews think differently, promising negative results.

      The Houthis will keep attacking these ships with some ridiculous drones and missiles made in their garage, and then one day they will get a barrage of real missiles from these ships and the fun will be over.

        Well, we still need to find this garage. They don’t launch these drones straight from the garage.....

        This is what "ridiculous drones and rockets made in a garage" look like: laughing


        And here are the Houthis themselves:


        Presenting the Houthis as savages in rags with Kalash rifles is a PR move by the Western media, which needed to portray the conflict in Yemen as a rebellion by a group of backward fundamentalists against a democratically elected president who called on neighbors to help suppress the rebellion.
        In fact, the country is experiencing a civil war between two presidents and a fight against the intervention of the Persian Gulf monarchies. And so-called The Houthis are mostly the Yemeni Armed Forces, including the Guard and Rocket Forces, as well as the IRGC forces from the other side of the Persian Gulf, testing their equipment in combat conditions.

      The Houthis are persistent guys and learn military science in a real way, so it didn’t work out today, it will work out tomorrow.

      Yes,
      The Yankees lie all the time, everything is run by Bandera's lads; So they demand money from the owner for the war game VNA 404.
      Sorry, test flight, did not coordinate their actions with friends from Somalia and Eritrea; didn’t want blood, but this is a clear signal to the mattress pads, in whose waters
      they are located, there will be no warnings in the future, and all sorties are to be killed.

      We would like to have normal air defense on our ships. The Black Sea Fleet with its existing ships is hiding under the umbrella of ground-based air defense, not being able to shoot down air targets (the cruiser "Moskva" will not let you lie).

        So this is... a long time ago. Iran has been waging a proxy war against monarchies for many years with the hands of the Houthis. Otherwise, it is difficult to understand where the Houthis get their endless supplies of ballistic missiles and UAVs.

      When a swarm of drones has a semblance of AI for autonomous databases, it will make sense to equip submarines with such swarms for special operations. Who attacked? Houthis! Near whose coast it flew, he is to blame. Go find a boat, you won’t even think about it.

      For a combat-ready destroyer of Arleigh Burke's caliber, the UAV does not pose any significant threat.

      The Houthis are also learning, the hour is not far off when experience will show itself.
