Houthis fire at an American destroyer firing missiles at Sanaa airport

The US Navy destroyer USS Carney was fired upon from Yemen by the Ansar Allah movement (Houthis). This was reported by the US Central Command.

According to the US military, the Houthis fired at an American destroyer while the latter was carrying out patrol missions in the waters of the Gulf of Aden. A missile was fired towards the ship, which was shot down by the ship's air defense systems.



It is noteworthy that earlier it was the destroyer USS Carney that was used by the US Navy to launch missile attacks on Houthi targets near the airport in Sanaa in Yemen. Before this, the ship was sent by the US Navy to the Black Sea five times - even before the start of a special military operation of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine. In 2023, the United States sent a destroyer to the Middle East.

It is noted that this is not the first attack by the Houthis against an American destroyer. Previously, it was fired at with rockets, and they also tried to attack using unmanned aerial vehicles. It is known about the ship that it belongs to the Arleigh Burke class destroyers. It was launched in 1994 and has a crew of 337 people. The destroyer is currently part of the Sixth fleet US Navy.

The Houthis regularly fire at ships linked to the US, UK and Israel that appear in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, within the range of Ansar Allah missiles. As we can see, despite the attacks on the territory of Yemen, the Houthis retained significant combat potential.

In fact, the military operation announced by the United States and Great Britain against the Ansar Allah movement only provoked the Houthis, who intensified their actions against Western ships and vessels. Initially, they fired only at Israeli ships, as a sign of solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian Hamas movement against Israel's military operation in the Gaza Strip.

    When the burning container ship "Maersk Gibraltar" is shown, an advertising insert should follow: "The Northern Sea Route is reliable, closer, and safer! Contact: NSR Murmansk Administration"... Well done Houthis! They act, and don’t just chatter about “concerns”, like some...angry

          They will, they definitely will. When their ammunition runs out a little, they will begin to spend it sparingly and it may be certain that they will fly below the airline.

          In the meantime, the point is, our Houthis again and again launched a missile attack on the British tanker MARLIN LUANDA in the Gulf of Aden.

          The Houthis said that the Red Sea, Bab al-Mandeb and the Gulf of Aden are closed to all US, UK and Israeli ships. They don’t trust the Houthis and continue to play Russian roulette.

            When American ships have little ammunition, they will simply move away from the shores where the Houthis are.
            But I have no doubt that there will be hits on warships. The Houthis just need to expand their combat area to the entire planet.
            Israel and the United States do not hesitate to attack their enemies anywhere, regardless of borders.
            Why should the Houthis act differently?

                Exactly.
                The Americans always retreated if they were threatened with losses.
                This is not the first time that the “strongest army in the world” will flounder and lose its slippers.
                Just don’t consider this army weak. This will be a fatal mistake. We must not forget that an unkilled enemy always returns in a moment of your weakness.

      Well, if the Houthis had Onyxes or something similar, then within a radius of 1000 km from the Yankees and their coalition there would have been no trace. And so, the Houthis are great, they manage to terrorize their enemies with flying water pipes.

        It’s in vain that you slander the Houthis No.
        They have a very good arsenal of anti-ship missiles, and in assortment. The fact that there is no result yet in terms of sending enemy vessels to the bottom does not mean at all that they will not be able to do this. You can look at the arsenal here -
        https://amalantra.ru/armiya-khusitov-ansar-allakh/
        They just don’t want to burn too many missiles and end up in some kind of PR pit.
        They are creative and study how the ship’s defense system works against threats from water and air in order to develop an option in which they can pass the defense and inflict defeat. They come in individually on boats, send several drones, send missiles (again individually). Just a few days ago there was a message that they were starting to lay minefields. They are in no hurry and, unlike mattresses with Europeans, they lose practically nothing economically. Soon they will whisper in their caves and prepare a combined attack from the sea on boats, from the sky with drones and from land with anti-ship missiles in one or two waves, but they will achieve their goal.

            There are no invulnerable targets. Any air defense can be overloaded in the sense that it will not be able to simultaneously track and train a larger number of targets than what is included in its technical parameters.

    The shelling of US warships in the Red Sea and its bays are political actions. For the outcome of their military operations, the Houthis must have more modern weapons or new tactics in using their outdated weapons. To do this, you need to know the weaknesses of the defense of warships. There are plenty of options; a warship of any country is not a fairy-tale module. Most likely, the defense above the ship is strong. But on the surface of the sea and in its depths there are options for breaking through the defense. It is impossible to exclude the possibility of a lone attack on the ship - a kamikaze. Drifting mines are also a passive attack option.

    Missiles are probably a less interesting option than a naval drone, especially since a couple of Ukrainian ones washed up on the shores of Crimea. Restore it, hand it over to the Houthis, and let the Americans discover from the wreckage of the drone that it is Ukrainian. To live with wolves, howl like a wolf.
