The Houthis revealed on August 2 that they had used a new medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM), dubbed Burkan-3, in the recent strike on the eastern Saudi city of Dammam.

During a press conference, the Yemeni group’s spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yahya Sari, said that the MRBM was developed and manufactured by “Yemeni experts” to overcome Saudi air-defense systems.

“Burkan-3 ballistic missile is the third generation of the Burkan long-range system, which can strike targets throughout the geography of the aggression’s countries,” the spokesman said.

The Burkan-3 MRBM appears to be a member of the Scud family, similar to the older Burkan-1 and 2H. However, unlike its predecessors it doesn’t share any similarities with known Iranian ballistic missiles.

The new MRBM has a range of over 1,200km. This would allow the Houthis to strike the U.S. Naval Support Activity in Bahrain. The base is located only 60km southeast of Dammam.

While it remains unclear if the new MRBM managed to hit its target, the Houthis’ ability to produce and operate such missiles poses a serious threat to the group’s foes.

    The real situation is that before the dumbass Saudi arseholes and UAE wife beating pimps started meddling in Yemen, the Yemenis who now have a majority Zaidi Shia population were content to chew khat and engage in long bouts of coffee drinking and smuggling across the Bab al Mandeb. The Saudis have always treated the poorer Yemenis like slaves and after the idiot MBS staged a coup against his uncle Nayef and locked him up and then killed him and then wanted to turn Yemen into a Saudi vassal Wahhabi state like Bahrain and UAE. The only miscalculation was that the Saudi picked a old senile 80 year old cancer ridden Hadi as their puppet and also totally underestimated the independent resolve of the Zaidi Shia Houthi and now a more inclusive AnsarAllah.

    The Yemenis like a few select warrior people simply do not accept foreign invaders and historically unite to make like hell for any invader. The Saudi arseholes are supported by entire NATO, Americunts and Zionist scum, but failed to make even a dent in Yemeni resistance. After the pig MBS got stuck in a quagmire, he took usual Zionist advice on tactics of bombing Yemen’s civilians to break the morale, not knowing Yemeni psyche and history, it had the opposite effect, just like Hitler miscalculated Russians and the idiot Saddam totally failed to understand Persian nationalism or the Americunt morons Vietnamese and Korean resolve. Considering the tribal and extended family based Yemeni society, the more civilians and Saudi cowards and Emirati pimps killed, the more enemies they made in the Yemeni population. Now Yemen which barely had any industrial infrastructure in 2014, is producing high tech weaponry and lot of educated Yemeni diaspora has returned to fight the hated Saudis. The Ansarallah are also benefiting from the lessons learnt in other regional wars and also taking full advantage of their country’s rugged mountain terrain. The dumbass Saud cowards took the usual Americunt advice to destroy the Yemeni civilian infrastructure like schools, power stations, airports, ports and hospitals. The problem being that Yemen was the poorest Arab nation with the toughest population who did not give a shit and lived off dates, goat milk and khat, so bombing them made no difference and made more lifelong enemies. In essence the SAUDIS ARE TRULY FUCKED unless they accept defeat and pay reparations. If not the Saudi cities and oil infrastructure will be destroyed as the new generation of Yemeni missiles, drones and airburst weapons is far deadlier and impossible to stop.

    Wow, my whole comment on why the Saudi idiots can not win in Yemen disappeared into thin air LOL. Gives new meaning to censorship and evading the factual truth. Even NYT has more freedom to post.
