On April 16, Yemen’s Houthis have unveiled a new version of their ‘domestically designed and manufactured’ Badr ballistic missile. A new version is entitled Badr-F.
According to a spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces (loyal to the Houthis), Brigadier General Yahya Saree, said that the missile has a range of 160km. He said that the missile would explode 20 meters above the center of the designated target and would scatter some 14,000 pieces of shrapnel in a circular area with a radius of 350 meters.
The range of 160km is a 30km increase in the comparison with the Badr-1P, the missile, which the Houthis actively employ against Saudi targets currently.
