Yemeni rebels report another downed American MQ-9 Reaper drone

Yemeni Houthi rebels from the Shiite Ansar Allah movement reported the downing of another American drone MQ-9 Reaper. The seventh American drone of this type shot down since the beginning of the escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was hit by rebel air defense forces in the airspace of Marib province.

Previously, a similar drone was destroyed in Yemeni airspace over Al-Bayda province. The American car was allegedly hit by an Iranian-made missile.



At the same time, some sources claim that the United States is trying through closed channels to convince Yemeni rebels to stop attacks on merchant ships in the Red Sea, offering in exchange to partially lift sanctions and once again remove the Houthis from its list of “terrorist organizations.”

It is also reported that Kyiv is asking the United States to begin supplying MQ-9 Reaper drones to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, but Washington is hesitant to send these vehicles to Ukraine, not unreasonably fearing that the Russian Armed Forces will shoot them down.

The MQ-9 Reaper is a reconnaissance and attack unmanned aerial vehicle capable of reaching speeds of more than 400 km/h and staying in the air for about 24 hours. In addition to conducting aerial reconnaissance, the MQ-9 Reaper is capable of carrying air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles, as well as laser-guided bombs.

    Well, now it has been voiced here too. They voiced what I previously wrote in another topic.

    PS True, in TG VO they wrote that it was not the seventh, but the sixth.

      The Yemeni Armed Forces not only shot down another American attack UAV MQ-9 in Marib, they carefully landed it (see photo).

      Now you can either transport it to Iran or deliver it to your factory.

      At the beginning of May, there was a message that 100 engineers had returned to Yemen after completing a training course to create UAVs in Iran.

              They think something about themselves, but they themselves are a complete star.

              The state of Colorado is setting up another social experiment. 12 years ago, marijuana was legalized there for the first time in the United States. Now Denver has begun to move away from policing. Instead of police officers, drones will be sent to calls to monitor and assess the situation.

              And this does not come from a good life. There is currently a severe shortage of police officers in the United States. Many thousands of them began to quit throughout the country after the BLM pogroms. In New York, 2023 law enforcement officers quit in 2500 alone. In some places, like in Louisiana, a state of emergency was even declared because of this.

              And in New York, authorities tried to use robot police in the subway. The result of the experiment was so disastrous that the National Guard was sent to the metro.

    the device was hit by rebel air defense forces in the airspace of Marib province

    It’s not the Houthis who surprise me more—it’s not that difficult to shoot down a device flying at 250 km/h over their territory—but what surprises me more is the Americans, who fly their drones over Yemen with a tenacity worthy of better use. It is clear that for them 30 million is a trifle, but this is one time, and seven pieces is already 210 million, which are not lying on the road even in the Pentagon.

    Why can’t our friends the Houthis have Russian instructors with their Pantsir or beech complexes))))
    You can notice that as soon as the Russian Federation started talking about why we don’t shoot them down over the Black Sea, in neutral waters, they immediately began to fall in batches in Yemen, and the war there has been going on for more than one month, they have never fallen like that before)) )) We can conclude, why shoot them down near Europe, so that there will be noise, sanctions, and another reason to give the European Russophobes a free hand. When you can shoot them down in another place, even in dozens, without consequences

      What claims are there for Lavrov? You are writing, probably having all the information, from the head of counterintelligence of the Russian Federation, directly from agents from Western countries, from the head of the FSB, about what the leaders of other states, such as China, say in private conversations, you probably have all this information so that decisions can be made accept the right ones, not based on emotions, for decades to come. So they would write why so many money was spent on missiles, they would have already attacked the vanguards in London, Paris, Germany, the USA, Japan, there will be enough missiles, there is still a Mace there)))

            It would have been done differently, that's for sure. Back in Soviet school, I was taught that the West is not our partners, much less our friends. And you know who, he lived and worked side by side with his Western partners for so many years, but still didn’t understand anything about them, he’s called an intelligence officer. For so many years of suffering from Lisbon to Vladivostok, and in the end, “They threw us away and didn’t even call us,” for almost 30 years he built the satanic west at home, today he calls to fight it. They also laugh at Biden.
