Yemen's Houthis shot down the fourth American MQ-9 Reaper drone

The small armed formation of the Yemeni Houthi rebels “Ansar Allah” has been continuing a fairly successful war against the Western military coalition in the Middle East, led by the United States and Great Britain, for more than six months. Missile and drone attacks on merchant ships have brought commercial traffic to a near standstill in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden. At the same time, all attempts by the Anglo-American forces to extinguish the activity of the Houthis led nowhere.





The military representative of the Houthis, Yahya Saria, announced another success in the war with the Americans. According to him, the air defense forces of the rebel Yemeni Ansar Allah movement shot down the fourth American MQ-9 Reaper drone. As CBS previously reported, citing sources, the United States has lost three over Yemen since November 2023. drone MQ-9 Reaper.

Yemen's air defenses on Thursday evening were able to shoot down an American MQ-9 drone while it was carrying out a hostile mission in the skies over Marib province

- says a message published in the telegram channel of a movement representative.

Confirming the defeat of the American modular reconnaissance and strike drone The Houthis published videos and photographs of its wreckage. Saria said Ansar Allah air defense forces attacked the MQ-9 with a home-made surface-to-air missile.



It is especially worth noting that the cost of this UAV exceeds thirty million dollars. Thus, during the war with the Western coalition, the “guys in slippers” destroyed more than $120 million worth of American drones alone. This is not to mention the fact that their constant attacks with missiles and drones on military and merchant ships are even more expensive, because the Americans, British and the Europeans who have joined them have to shoot down cheap targets with very expensive anti-aircraft missiles.

      Equal in what? Since when did this UAV become such a difficult target that it is worth looking up to those who (W-W-WOW!) can shoot it down? Sorry, of course, if you are a fan of the Houthis, but Russian air defense performs tasks that are technically much more complex, and moreover, successfully. What is there to be equal to?

            Yes, it’s not a matter of development in air defense, but the fact that they can afford it .. And since Reaper is from “Igolka”, I think it will easily go astray ..

              They can afford it, but the planes were never shot down request And Reaper, yes, anyone can do it. If the Houthis are so tough, why haven't they sunk a single ship yet? Or didn’t they shoot down a single plane with a pilot?

                    Hello, you stupid one! All the fuss is due to the fact that some people in Moscow don’t have enough spirit or courage or simply don’t have the balls to give the command to throw the ATACMS spotters to the bottom of the sea! Because because of these weak-willed people, my loved ones in Sevastopol are sitting under the fire of homosexuality! Without light. In danger.
                    All you have to do is take down a couple of their UAVs.
                    The Houthis have the balls for this. But in the General Staff of the Russian Federation there is someone of an incomprehensible orientation, worried about positions and shoulder straps due to the fact that some oligarch will snitch on the fact that due to the actions of the Russian army his loot has floated away.

                  I do not know. I don’t see this as such a clearly necessary step. After all, the Americans will still have reconnaissance satellites that can be used for the same purposes. And - once again - planes with crews. Surely no one will shoot at people on board. So if the West turns out to be decisive enough, the potential destruction of Hawk will not bring any benefit, and will raise tensions.
                  Do not forget that the West is not using even half of its capabilities in this situation. We are interested in him continuing to be relaxed.

                        No, he didn't start completely. Look, in the same USA, thousands of tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and aircraft have been in storage since the Cold War: they prepared for WWII no worse than the Soviet Union. In one Davis Montene there are about F-4s seven hundred. Now imagine what would happen if they started restoring them at the same rapid pace that we started restoring tanks, making new ones, and then transferring them to Ukraine. Yes, the F-4 is obsolete... But there are A LOT of F-4s out there.
                        I'm not trying to scare anyone with American warehouses - ours are no worse. I'm trying to show that neither we nor they really started the war. Because this is still more of a political action than a military one.

But thieves who have never made a rusty nail in their worthless lives will never understand that they don’t fight for money and don’t work for money. That’s actually the whole difference in this “almost”, because FOR MONEY in America you can find a more comfortable and highly paid job, as an IT specialist for example, and why should they bother with “restoring” old junk if it’s simpler speculation (i.e. business ) stir up.

                        I started with the latter based on your recommendation. Indeed, the man paints an unflattering picture for the United States. But... There is a video from April 2022, where he prophesies for Russia already in the summer of that year the beginning of witch hunts and pogroms in search of those to blame for the failures, and by the 24th - generally very serious problems that should become a severe crisis . Well... where is all this? Why should forecasts for the United States be more accurate?
                        In general, forecasts from this gentleman are not worth watching. The thoughts about the current moment are interesting there, yes.

                        In general, forecasts from this gentleman are not worth watching.
                        1. he is NOT in Russia. It is unrealistic to issue a forecast for a country in which you have not lived for 20 years.
                        2. “forecasts for the USA” are not forecasts, but rather a “layout” of the current state of affairs in the country (and through the eyes of an ordinary person), and from there it will go “as the cards fall.” For example, without knowing the reasons in 2007 (the collapse of the housing stock market in the USA), how could one predict the global crisis? And if a person states: yes, such a problem exists, then you can try to predict ONE OF the possible scenarios for the development of the situation yourself (but there will always be several of them and it’s not a fact that you will guess).
                        3. “you shouldn’t watch this gentleman’s forecasts” - he’s not a pro, that’s why he’s interesting. Because he says what he sees and thinks. And all the pros are usually biased. This is what makes him interesting. But even according to the pros: they will never be able to give accurate forecasts because no one in the world has the full amount of information. And if you don’t know, for example, how China, Iran or Saudi Arabia will behave (in relation to a certain event), then how can you predict what will happen, for example, in the Russian Federation? External factors mean a lot, no less than internal ones...
                        PS, so for me personally, his “alignment” is interesting, for example, his video about “Trunks in the USA” gave me more information than all the rantings of our talkers on this topic, why not watch it...
                        ZY I don’t watch stuff like that at all, I listen to it “in the background” while programming on a PC, so it doesn’t take up any time at all, but I don’t have time to watch a movie...

                        What is PROFIT here? (benefit). It makes no sense for a capitalist employer to pay an employee more (everything is exactly the opposite). The United States is generally going through a crisis and the government can raise purchasing prices only if it helps to get out of this crisis. Intimidating Europe so that it buys American weapons (no matter what, even for Ukraine) is one of the goals of getting this PROFIT. There is no profit in restoring the F-4, only losses. Sponsoring a free Ukraine (a bankrupt that has long since hit the bottom due to debts) - why the hell would a goat button accordion? Alas, you don’t think at all like an American; there has never been, is not, and never will be a patriot, Billy, who dreams of helping the Ukrainian Mykola free of charge. Remember the epic:

Of course, he exaggerated, because of course they wouldn’t agree to a small contract, they need a massive sale of their weapons, so as a trade agreement they would require us to go to Berlin in order to sell us more weapons and get out of the crisis with fabulous wealth.

                        Alas, you don’t think at all like an American.

                        In my opinion, thinking does not depend on the nation.

                        There is no profit in restoring the F-4, only losses.

                        And I don’t argue with this. I'm trying to respond to those who perceive what is happening as a WWII-style war of extermination or something like that. The Americans do not want to destroy us, but to deal with their troubles. And then some people imagine that they are sitting in Washington and thinking about how they can kill us all here, because then these same “imaginers” begin to seethe with emotions due to the fact that the military leadership is not acting in the style of what they almost imagine to be the Second World War 2.0, but in the style of a local conflict.
