Saudi air defense intercepted a ballistic missile launched by Hussites from Yemen

54
The Saudi Air Defense Forces intercepted the Scud missile launched by Yemeni rebels from the Sana'a area, reports RIA News Reuters message.


Yemeni President Mansour Hadi in Saudi Arabia, October 2015

“Saudi Arabian air defense yesterday at about 11 the evening local time intercepted a missile launched from the Yemeni city of Sanaa in the direction of the city of Najran. The air force immediately destroyed the launch platform, ”the agency informed.

The publication reminds us that the Scud rocket (in the Russian P-11 classification) entered service in the USSR in the 1950s. ”

According to the Yemeni service News, "The target was the Saudi National Guard base."

According to the agency, this is not the first case - “earlier in December, Saudi Arabia’s air defenses already reflected a missile strike from Yemen’s territory”, where the conflict between the Hussite rebels and the army units of President Hadi, who was ousted from the country, continues. The troops loyal to Hadi are supported on the ground and from the air by the forces of the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia.

    It is necessary for the Hussites to put a newer technique. If not yours, then at least buy from North Koreans. Those will only be happy. And for a long time they don't give a damn about possible sanctions.

        Yemeni forces hit Saudi military base in Najran
        The Yemeni army, with the support of popular committees loyal to the Huti Ansarullah movement, hit a military base in the southwestern border city of Saudi Arabia Najran with a ballistic missile.
        Yemen’s Al-Masirah news channel reported on Sunday that the Qaher 1 rocket caused huge explosions by pushing arsenals at a base located in the Najran Al Arissah district. Yemeni forces also launched rocket attacks on a convoy of Saudi mercenaries moving from the center of the Yemeni province to Marib in the north of the province of Jauf. Three cars were destroyed during the attack.
        Yemeni military forces have also sacked more than 80 Katyushas at Saudi bases in Najran in retaliation for the ongoing strikes of Riyadh against Yemen.
        Dozens of mercenaries fighting for a regime in Riyadh were killed after Yemeni militants fired rockets at the presidential palace in Marib and al-Amri in the southwestern province of Taez. According to recent reports, severe clashes continue between Ansarullah fighters and Saudi valuable militants loyal to the fugitive former President of Yemen Abd Mansour Hadi Rabbuh, in the Dhubab district of Taez. Similar clashes continue in the northeastern part of the capital, Yemen Sana'a. In a separate development on Sunday, Saudi warplanes repeatedly bombarded the border regions of Yemen.
        The jets also pounded the Kataf area in the northern province of Saad. Yemen has been under the military attacks of Saudi Arabia since the end of March. More than 7500 people have been killed and more than 14000 have been injured since March. Strikes are also heavy damage to the means and infrastructure of a poor country, destroying many hospitals, schools and factories.

        The problem is solved by increasing the number of missiles in attack and from different directions. Even the Israeli "Dome will not be able to bring down everything." By the way, they’ve probably used an American Patriot, since they’ll shoot down missiles. hi

          Hi Nikolay! You are not quite right, in the first, the missiles are not stored for a long time in a refilled form, and secondly, they were mass-produced in the USSR until the end of the 80's. The last time in our armed forces they were used in the 1999 year, during the 2-th Chechen war. Then about 200 missiles, including expired ones, were shot.

    The Patriot missile isn’t as sucky as some people think.
    He has a solid combat score. In 2003, he shot down several Saddam Skuds.
    Scud, despite his considerable age, is a difficult target. They intercept him
    on the top of the trajectory - in space.
    The first version of the Patriot was inferior to the C-300, it is true. But then

    The publication recalls that the "Scud" rocket (in the Russian classification P-11) entered service in the USSR in the 1950's. ”


    The publication is lying ... no The ancient P-11 rocket developed by S.P. Korolyov and launched from SPU on the basis of the ISU-152 has long been universally withdrawn from service. Yemenis could use OTR R-17 over the territory of Saudi Arabia. However, taking into account the fact that the KVO of this missile is more than 500 m, effective strikes with conventional warheads can only be against large area targets. At present, the warranty periods for storing R-17 liquid-propellant rockets manufactured in the USSR have long expired and their reliability is in great doubt.

          A less active AK-20I than AK-27I was used in the missiles, and then after 5 years, the missiles were sent to those divisions for revision, and there they decided to leave the missile in operation or send to a repair plant. After 10 years, the missiles usually flowed. we were washed with tanks with a special solution. I do not remember the composition of the solution, since our mission ended after a jump in fuel.

            Well, the oxidizer is still based on nitrogen oxides - this is of course a very aggressive substance, but P-17 is usually not stored in the filled form. And they are refueled much less often than SAM.

              The refueling frequency does not play a role here. The main thing here is the cleanliness of the tanks. The fact is that if there is fuel left, but you can’t download it until dry. Therefore, the tanks are washed and purged with dry nitrogen. Even during storage, condensation forms in the tanks and therefore, before refueling them They are also purged with dry nitrogen. Yes, by analogy with an automobile fuel tank, I probably noticed a coat of condensate on the tank more than once. It also happens with a rocket tank. SAMs usually stand on the launchers fully charged and this slows down, but does not stop the corrosion of the tank at.

What remained in the tank, God knows, but the tank “slammed” the blessing without serious consequences, but cracked. The order was brought before the system, but without murals.

    the news was minus due to the phrase "this is not the first case - earlier in December, Saudi air defense had already repelled a missile strike from Yemen." If you talk about what happened earlier, then write that the Yemenis hit Scud at the Saudi Arabian air base several times, so much so that the losses in equipment and officers were very impressive. And only by December did these rockets learn to shoot down.

    After all, the R-11 rocket, known in the west under the designation SS-1B "SCUD", really entered service with the USSR in the 50s. Another thing is that the Yemenis have R-17 (SS-1C "SCUD-B")
