Houthi Interior Ministry Unveils New Armored Vehicle (Video)

Screen grab from a video released by the Houthi-led Yemeni Interior Ministry.

On September 9, the Interior Ministry of the Sanaa-based Yemeni government, which is led by the Houthis (Ansar Allah), unveiled a new armored vehicle.

Brigadier General Abdul Khaliq al-Ajri, a spokesman for the interior Ministry, said that the vehicle, dubbed “Ba’as-2,” was locally developed. According to the spokesman, the vehicle features a modern design and equipment.

“[Ba’as-2] will be a great source of support for the security personnel, and a deterrent to anyone who might be tempted to harm the security and stability of this country,” Brig. Gen. al-Ajri said.

The Ba’as-2, which was apparently built on the chassis of a pickup truck, is powered by a 352 horsepower V8 engine. The vehicle weights 4,5 tons. It is armed with a turret-mounted DShK 12,7 mm heavy machine gun and a trunk-mounted B-10 82 mm recoilless rifle.

Around two years ago, the Houthis’ Interior Ministry launched the production of the Ba’as-1 vehicle, which is less armed and likely lighter than the new version.

The Houthis has been taking advantage of the ongoing ceasefire in Yemen to boost their military capabilities. The ceasefire, which was brokered by the United Nations, entered into effect on April 2. The ceasefire was set to end on June 2. However, it was extended two times, first until August 2 and then until October 2.

The blockage imposed on Yemen by the Saudi-led coalition and the US have clearly failed to prevent the Houthis from obtaining new capabilities. During a parade that was recently held in the city of al-Hudaydah on Yemen’s western coast, the group showcased several types of anti-ship missiles.

The Russian “Tiger ” vehicle is classed as a LIGHT armoured vehicle -escort -patrols -special forces etc its not meant as a battlefront attack vehicle –the Baas-2 is meant for battle confrontation.

In other words Tiger APC is completely worthless for combat , this Shoigu´s little pet project is absolute failure with weak armor , and no gun shield as bonus (Americans had gun shiels for MGs mounted on APCs already in Vietnam war .. so Russia is only 60 years behind)

Why don’t you look at the Striker and all those other vehicles the US laughing stock armed forces possess in their inventory like the recent Oshkosh JTLV mobility vehicle? Do you know how many the Houthis alone have destroyed that belonged to the Saudi chimp army? Imagine what the Russians will do to them. Then you have all that other over-priced crap like the General Dynamics Flyer series of “light assault” vehicles which have no protection whatsoever for its crews. You’ll see thousands of dead Americunts in any future confrontation in the first few day alone.

Crap. The untermensch with the recoiless rifle is not protected at all, that shit takes a lot of time to reload and is hard to aim at that configuration. The level of protection might be good against 9mm or. 45 cal, which is bullshit

“Untermensch ” — is it Romania via 1930,s Germany ? except its -Arabs- Muslims – brown-skinned your referring to -no problem with Zionists then ?.

At 4.5 tons its heavily armoured and will stand much more than a 45 calibre -your criticism is not backed up with military website information reality.

If you think your right produce a military website that lists YOUR comments ?

I could penetrate that crappy armor with my stub dick.

Than why is your wife complaining about your poor performance? Maybe Houthi dick would cure her discontent better. You have never even smell the combat, havent’t you?

Peppe il Sicario

I’ve heard that Vlad’s man-wife can suck a coconut through a garden hose. Word is with Houthi dick, he-she can’t get enough since Vlad suffers from LDS (Limp Dick Syndrome).

At least they don’t call it a “tank.” Silly Afghani’s call their “gifted” /leftover” armored humvee’s “tanks.” I still think the Toyota Tacoma Tactical, is still the way to roll!
