In Video: Saudi-led Coalition Destroys SA-6 Air-Defense System Of Houthis

On March 10, the Saudi-led coalition announced that it had destroyed an air-defense system of the Houthis (Ansar Allah) in central Yemen.

Saudi-led coalition warplanes targeted the system, a Soviet-made SA-6 “Gainful,” in the province of Ma’rib, where the Houthis are currently leading a large-scale ground operation against Saudi-backed forces.

A video released by the Saudi-led coalition shows the destruction of a 2P25 transporter erector launcher (TEL) of the system, a nearby missile depot and an unidentified radar system.

A locally upgraded version of the SA-6 air-defense system dubbed “Fater-1” is in service with the Houthis. The Yemeni-upgraded system has a range of 22 km. The Houthis used the system in the past against warplanes and drones of the Saudi-led coalition and the US.

Last week, the Houthis shot down a Vestel Karayel combat drone of the Saudi-led coalition over al-Jawf. The Fater-1 system may have been used to down the drone.

Despite its vast resources, the Saudi-led coalition rarely manages to hunt down the Houthis’ air-defense means. Last year, the coalition destroyed a P-18 early warning radar of the Houthis in the outskirts of the Yemeni capital Sanaa.

Today, the Houthis’ air-defense capabilities pose a threat to aerial operations of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen more than ever before.

Hopefully no sandal was lost

Frankly, the Saudis are up the shitcreek without a paddle. This is the reality:

1. The inbred Wahhabi scum MBS started this inhuman war against the Arab world’s poorest country without any cause in 2015 to affect a Wahhabi induced take over of independent Shia majority Yemen. The idiot MBS obviously was not aware of Yemeni history or demographics and the fate of Egyptians in the 1960’s, when they invaded and lost 60,000 men.

2. Despite complete US and NATO support, the Saudis got bogged down and started losing, while their other Wahhabi puppets like Bahrain, UAE, Jordan and Morocco suffered losses and pulled out. Soon the mercenaries from Africa, namely Chad, Senegal and Sudan also lost their nerve. The Colombian drug smugglers were not paid so they killed Saudi officers and some were beheaded. Now that leaves not too many choices. Pakistan also refused, so now the Saudis are grooming Indians to join in.

3. US and western pilots indiscriminately bombed Yemeni civilians, which is a tribal culture only produced more Ansarallah recruits and tougher resistance.

4. The Saudis and their mercenaries have lost every battle to the khat chewing sandal clad flip flop Ansarallah natural born warriors. The Saudis have lost 70% of the armor.

5.The Ansarallah missiles and drones now attack the Saudi cities, including the capital and oil fields at will. The US and Zionist anti-missile systems have been a colossal failure.

6. The Saudis are in the process of losing Marib and the oil fields. The Houthis are at the gates of Aden, barring a miracle or full scale NATO intervention, the Saudis are dead men walking.

I had heard that they were hiring Colombians but I hadn’t heard they had then mutinied. That’s absolutely hilarious, if not surprising, I guess you don’t have to be a Wahhabi to be head-chopping human filth :)

Just Me

500 Colombians were hired, mostly Narco gangs and promised $2000 a month, the Africans are paid $250 a month. However, they were told that the Yemenis are weak and will not be a problem. The first battle was the near Port of Hodeidah, the Houthis routed them and the Colombians fled, they demanded money to go home. The Saudi scum refused, so the Colombians shot three Saudi officers, so the Saudis beheaded 20 of them .

Jens Holm

You have to make a date about it. There were and are several recruitments for several kinds of jobs. Here You also can get an ordinary defence jobs fx for UAE but asked – for extra pay – to fx go to more active jobs against Houtis.

So which 500 and when was it. And how is it now,

According to wikipedia the first arrived in about 2010 and also wasnt only Colombians.

Bobby Twoshoes

Lol, I misunderstood it as the Colombians beheading some Saudis which would have been beautifully ironic. Maybe if they start hiring Mexicans we’ll get to see that :) Thanks for the extra info brother.

It was a non-operational stationary systems, the Ansarallah are now operating more mobile Fater 1. Now almost all Saudi raids are flown by mercenary US, British and French pilots and some Egyptians. They have to show some “achievements” fpr the $50,000 they receive for every sorties. Just last three months according to the latest book on the clown prince MBS, these pilot mercenaries (contractors) have cost $1 billion.

Indian Ambassador MK Bhadrakumar has as usual written an excellent analysis of Saudi defeat in Yemen and changing US stance.

Biden’s Yemen stance could spell the end for MBS

A defeat or quagmire in Yemen could cast doubt on the Saudi prince’s credentials to rule his tormented country.

The war in Yemen since the Saudi-led intervention in 2015 is now at
its most intense since 2018, as the Houthis besiege the city of Marib,
located in an oil-rich region, which contains an oil refinery and
supplies gas to the entire country.

The Houthis have the upper hand insofar as Marib is the last bastion of the Saudi-backed forces and the outcome of their assault on it could determine the fate of the war.

Typical negative propaganda version. Every things they do is wrong. According to Your versions of the world those and most of those You dont like – which might not like You as well – are loosing all the time.

Here such a system is worth noting. I wonder why those Houtis put of a worthless system there. Umbrellas fx is much cheaper.

But when it comes to Syria and Assads shoot down an Israely jet or missile down, then it GOOD OLD SAM.

Ypu again and again write Irans are the best and lies all the times. A few days ago You even wrote a minority rapport telling Pakistanis should play Your Farsi.

The majority of Pakistanis are speak Punjabi or something, so a voting about it with the Pakistanis any time should be, that integration would be with a Pakistani language.

I would say Arabic is a bigger and better language. You obvios dont understand most of the arabic world. A start would be to have same language.

Ashok Varma

Urdu is the national language of Pakistan. It is based on Farsi and was the court language of the Moguls for over 300 years 1526-1857. Kindly refrain from spamming and posting ignorant nonsense just to get attention.

Jens Holm

It wasnt me who proposed, that all Pakistanis should speak Farsi only.

Thats what I commented. It makes sense to use a majority language.

I also right above proposed that if Iranians wanted some improvements and today have contacts in the Arabic speaking world it alsop would make more sense to leave farsi for arabic.

I looked up. 422 mio. already speak arabic dialicts well.

So Im not spamming posting ignorant nonse. You do because You dont read, where it came from. I comment why 220 million Pakistanis should not speak Farsi.

Jens Holm

I just write it makes no sense -as proposed by anoter – that it makes no sense to implment Farsi there in the name of majority.

It was a old T-55 chassis decoy. The Ansarallah have made perfect decoys by removing the turrets and putting plastic SA-6 on top. The SA-6 were delivered in 1980’s and most have been upgraded to Fater 1 and 2/

US has blocked the sale of 30 Turkish attack helicopters to Pakistan.

WASHINGTON: The United States has prevented Turkey from supplying 30
locally-made attack helicopters to Pakistan, diplomatic sources in
Washington told Dawn.

According to Bloomberg News, Turkey’s presidential spokesman
Ibrahim Kalin told reporters on Monday that “the US has blocked Turkey’s
helicopter sale to Pakistan, which will likely lead to Islamabad buying
it from China.”

The ATAK T-129 is a twin-engine, tandem seat, multi-role, all-weather
attack helicopter based on the Agusta A129 Mangusta platform and is
equipped with American engines.

The US is holding up export clearance for the LHTEC engine as a sign of its displeasure at Turkish purchase of Russian S-400 air defence systems..

India has been invited to Saudi Arabia for joint military exercises for the first time in history after Pakistan refused to fight in Yemen. Modi is a CIA agent and will get India involved in the this mess.

IN A FIRST, INDIAN AND SAUDI ARABIA ARMIES TO UNDERTAKE JOINT BILATERAL EXERCISES

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2021 BY INDIAN DEFENCE NEWS

In a significant development highlighting the growing rift in Saudi and Pakistani ties, Indian and Saudi armies will undertake joint bilateral exercises. This will be the first such exercises of both the armies together. The Indian forces contingent will be travelling to Saudi Arabia for the exercises which will be taking place in the next financial year. There are reports that Saudi Arabia has also asked India to provide pilots for its airforce for operations in Yemen.

In December 2020, in another significant development, Indian Army Chief
General MM Naravane had visited Saudi Arabia. It was the first time any
Indian Army chief had visited the West Asian country in what is a clear
sign of growing ties between New Delhi and Riyadh.

The Army Chief during his trip to Saudi Arabia, he had visited the
Headquarters of Royal Saudi Land Force, the Joint Force Command
Headquarters and King Abdul Aziz Military Academy. Saudi Arabia
identifies India as one of the Kingdom’s Strategic Partner Countries
under its ‘Vision 2030’. There is no mention of defence collaboration wit India’s arch enemy Pakistan.

India hopefully will not sell itself for a few dollars, even the Pakistanis refused to die for Saudi scum and China had to repay the $3 billion loan for the bankrupt Pakistan.

Fundamentals of Laws,inocent untill proven guilty,cia stooges lost again!
Do not lose hope for the vain,there’s a bush replica they will try to reinfest
however by the time even if it came as hoped,like fake rape claims,chances are be a worldwide purge against these unconstituate tools who represent satanic soros/nwo/multi gendered truth assasins,and forge ahead with the multi (not bipolar) world.

The tyranny bit,germany and usa must pay for all warcrimes and reparations towards genocides and destruction of other nations without doing anything constructive to repar the damadge they done,seens all adults must bear responsability for their rather pathedic actions,more so even inactions after the fact becomes more prominent by the days,weeks,moths and years,whilst germany is doing the darnest,to find any kind of means to repay their debt,usa have failed,so much in the tradition to recover such losses,to be be a massive purge of illegal migrants,with special exempts and allowed to rape,steal and pillage society ,now aware too scared to defend constituates,sad but true!

The scarey bit’s get to see when debt collections takes effect,but hey I’m just a dumbass who never wears the mask,worse yet corona vaccine free
Did you not see the dumasses hired by soros to pretend to be nationalsts
where in reality made it seem anti vaxxers are far more dumb than lgbtqrx
but this phsyop of the deep states too shall fail,why?

Because they in the real know whom understand perfectly well are confident in the Commonwealths human rights legislation,they are the ones whom contribute to economies not time to protest when there is no need in the first place,just like the fake rape claims of medusa +cos,
these deep state desperatos and their tools are not intelligent beings,
chances are trolls here whom vy towards nwo are smarter than the media
medusas yet certainly not wiser than the truth,so let their show persist!

Most of these Saudi claims are absolute hogwash. The Fater 1 claimed the latest Saudi Tornado a few months ago. Now the mercenaries drop stand off weapons mostly from the Saudi side, like the Zionist cowards do in Syria. Even some of the photos are faked to get the bonus money.

Was not this a KSA system, left behind in their retreat?

Just Me

They were sold to South Yemen, it was allied to the Soviet Bloc. Most are inoperable and Yemenis now produce pretty effective hybrid SAMS that have shot down over 15 Saudi and other puppet planes as the SF photo shows, the Bahrainis, Jordanians, UAE and Morocco have all lost planes and cut and run afterwards. The Saudi F-15 are mostly non operational and they are using British Tornado’s with mercenary pilots. Since 2018, the Ansarallah and the allied Yemeni military has deployed four major hybrid SAM systems, some quite ingenious using air to air missiles.

What a victory! The Saudis destroyed 50 year old AA weapons. Bravo! Bravo! What a demonstration of power and technology!!!

Ashok Varma

Clearly, Iran bet on the Houthis as the legitimate government of
Yemen, with an embassy in Tehran headed by an “ambassador,” and that is
turning out to be sound judgment. Meanwhile, Yemen has become yet
another West Asian conflict – after Lebanon, Iraq and Syria – where the
Saudis are ending up as losers.

Worse still, the Saudis could be staring at a quagmire in Yemen,
given the US disengagement plus the withdrawal of the United Arab
Emirates from the war and Egypt’s refusal to get involved despite
Riyadh’s entreaties.

With the US pushing for an end to the war, the Saudis have a choice
to seize on this momentum and leave it to Yemeni factions to pursue a
political solution on their own. But it is unclear whether the Saudis
have reached such a conclusion yet.

The five-year war in Yemen has cost Riyadh an estimated US$100
billion so far, which is imposing a heavy drain on the Saudi economy.
The horrific scale of destruction that Saudi forces have wrought on
Yemen has become a blot on the Saudi image regionally and
internationally.

Ivan Freely

It’s already a quagmire for Riyadh. Are you sure the war is costing $100 Billion USD? It seems rather low.

Ashok Varma

According to rough estimates of war material lost. The oil revenue losses, infrastructure costs, and on-going $5 billion a month mercenary costs are not included. The Indian Ambassador has based his article on estimates as he is not a military man. But he has acknowledged that Saudis have lost most of their tanks and APC, mostly intact to the Houthis, so $100 billion seems like a good estimate of lost equipment including F-15, Tornado, Bahrain, Moroccan and Jordanian F-16. Several Saudi airports are now out of commission and the biggest humiliation as pointed out by Ambassador Bhadrakumar is the Saudi inability to protect their own capital from daily attacks and the ultimate failure of expensive US Patriots and THAAD systems, which failed to intercept and kill Saudis on ground with debris causing panic and humiliation.

Ahson
