On Thursday, a source from the Sputnik agency reported that the Houthis had managed to shoot down an Arab coalition reconnaissance plane led by Riyadh over Yemen’s territory, reports RIA News.




"According to the source, the plane was shot down by a Russian-made ground-to-air missile over the city of Dahyan, Sa'ada province, in north-west Yemen," the report said.

Earlier it was reported that the Yemeni rebels shot down an American heavy drone over a Sana by a Soviet rocket from the Dvina air defense system.

Recall aviation Arab coalition strikes in Hussite-controlled areas of Yemen since March 2015

      Hussites managed to bring down Arab reconnaissance aircraft over Yemen
      Where in the message is indicated that it was an UAV? It could well be a manned aircraft heavier than air smile
      In general, it is interesting: the Houthis shoot down modern planes, sink warships, burn armored vehicles, launch tactical missiles .. Some advanced "volunteers", don't you think? Obviously not "men in slippers with AK-47"bully

        It is not written which scout. In the UAE, scouts only UAVs, in the SA scouts only such RF-5E Tiger Eye probably landed it.

          The anti-Husite coalition includes not only the KSA and the UAE. Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan, Sudan, Morocco, Bahrain, Egypt at last (it seems that it has not forgotten anyone). And who landed there is still unknown.

          Then the sin was not to attack. The Iraqis were devastated by the war, which ended three years ago. Yes, and the generals were smeared with dollars. And Iran is more monolithic, the population is 80 lyamas, the territory is hefty. Let even Westerners destroy air defense, and as soon as they go to the ground, so Immediately the heads of Zionists and pendants will begin to be exported by some DHL to their homeland.

            I would not say. Too multinational, and Azeri separatism is actively heated by Americans. But the mountainous terrain is a big plus: how much did Chechny and I take?

              It all depends on the leadership of the country. Here, the Iranians will have it in a stronger way than ours, I think. If necessary, local separatists will be put out.

    What kind of drones? It is clearly written: "Yemeni militias shot down an Arab coalition reconnaissance plane." Scouts are known to fly high. In general, the picture is the same as with Powers. The scout will probably be newer, but the fly swatter is the same! Bravo to the Soviet military industry!

      It depends on what they have under the scout, maybe it's Phantom, from the time of Vietnam ... Or the slow and defenseless OV-10. This is not an AWACS to blame, it would be a direct feat.

    Unfortunately, there is not enough information to draw conclusions about the real capabilities of the Houthis and their "secret" suppliers ... Most likely there is not a "closed, but ... an open fracture" in the arsenal ... supply them with normal break-in facilities along with old ones - my opinion hi

    And what does their aviation do over the territory of Yemen? Probably takes a walk. Systematic bombardments are underway, and wherever necessary. And the news is good. Before that, an UAV was shot down, now the plane. So, you see, and slowly the hunt will begin to repel this obscure coalition without bombing.

        even this is not necessary. Simply block the Hormuz and Aden straits. Then the Saudi oil export will come to an end. Then for sure is the end of these perverts.

Well, all that remains is to wish success to the current Russian weapons developments. Glory to Russian weapons.

    How does the joy of the unconfirmed removal of the aircraft, the destruction of the 5 Apache Point and the sinking of the SA frigate differ from the joy of the ukrozombaks of the new news on the destruction of the MP divisions, Airborne Forces and Special Forces battalions in full force, as well as Armata itself? They also nod approvingly, reason.


    And the joy of the fact that the Saudis are purely the waters of Satanyuga. And now, at the moment, at the direction of the global Satanyug oligarchs, they are trying to inflict damage on Russia with their game on the cost of oil. And Russia is one of the last hopes of all normal humanity.
    So I'm definitely on the side of the Houthites. But if the Howsites were trampled on the offensive on the territory of the Saudis, then my joy would have been no limit. I hope this happens. The regime of sheikhs-perverts, stoning people only because they are Christians, must fall!
