Attacks of the alliance’s forces against Saudi troops and mercenaries are carried out in response to Riyadh’s military aggression against Yemen, launched in March 2015.
According to UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick, at least 10,000 Yemenis have been killed and 40,000 others have been wounded in the Saudi campaign since its beginning.
its a modified s-75 AA missile. I guess you have to be creative when the world richest and most powerful terrorist state decides they’re going to attack one of the poorest countries on earth.
What kind of targeting system does it use, GPS, GLONASS, other?
They are not going to say (for obvious reasons). Accuracy probably isn’t great, but Ras Tanura refinery and port is 3km long by 1km wide. ‘Close’ is close enough. Unfortunately, Ras Tanura is out of range (for now). https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8bc4134d5dfe9cda49dc931dc6f670f576eefb5bec869d754732aa246227a848.png
If it has one I would guess Inertial with GLONASS/GPS. Pretty low cost.
holy shit the sound of it launching was epic, imagine one of those coming right at u, or a saudi lol
short range theatre ballistic missile, not medium and certainly not intermediate range.
