Houthis’ Precision-Guided Rocket Strikes Saudi Military Camp

The Houthis announced on December 27 that the Yemeni Missile Force had launched a Badir-1P precision-guided rocket at a Saudi military camp in the Kingdom’s southern region.

Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, a spokesman for the Yemeni group, said that the rocket strike targeted a large Saudi military camp in the province of Najran.

“Dozens [of personnel] of the Saudi military, including officers, were killed or injured,” Brig. Gen. Sari said.

The Badir-1P, which was revealed on October 27, is an INS\GPS guided version of the Badir-1 solid fuel artillery rocket. Experts believe that the Badir-1 family is derived from the Iranian-made Fajir-5 rocket.

The Saudi-led coalition has not commented on the rocket strike, so far. The coalition rarely acknowledges a successfully attack on its troops.

Yemen’s al-Masirah TV said that the rocket attack was a response to a recent Saudi airstrike on a local market in the Houthis’ stronghold, Saada. The airstrike, which took place on December 24, killed 17 civilians including 12 Ethiopian refugees.

The launch platform would be fairly easy to make with a plasma cutter, grinder and a good mig welder.
Sadly I do not have the expertise to make an accurate missile and am crap with electrics. :)

I cannot wish the Houthis well enough. The missiles are a game changer and will make the headchopping regime more unpopular than it already is.

The regime doesn’t want to send its pampered countrymen so it sends mostly Sudanese troops instead. These missiles will strike the guilty who think they are out of reach.

And after a massive onslaught of their troops the Sudanese have pulled out the majority of their soldiers. They realized it is a very unthankful and meaningless job.

I seem to recall that Sudan recalled some 10000 of the sudanese mercenaries in saudi, most likely over non payment to the mercenaries and also non-payment of the monthly payment to the various government officials with their hands out.
