On December 23, the Houthis media wing released a video showing the moment when the Houthis shot down a CH-4B unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) of the Saudi Air Force over the northern Yemeni provinceo of Saada.

Saudi Arabia had bought several CH-4B UCAVs from China. The Saudi Air Force has been actively employing these UCAVs in the Yemeni conflict.

    Saudi Arabia is licensed to build them itself. It could be UAE, too. They got a batch of Chinese-made CH-4Bs a while back.

    At first, I thought “Jeeze… what a waste of a rocket” thinking this was a much smaller drone. It’s an MQ-1 Predator clone though, so fairly large and armed. Something like 700 lb. capacity and 40 hours endurance. $4 million each even from China, so I guess it deserved attention from a Houti MANPADS.

    Not sure about the Houthi video. The angles are deceiving – it looked like it completely missed the CH-4 either undershooting or overshooting it, then the frame goes out of focus, then a few seconds later the hit. Not saying the Houthis are lying here – it’s just that they should keep the camera guy away from the khat and teach him about focus lock. Congrats anyway, Houthis.

      I watch people in a trance like state, staring at their phones and think, if they ceased to work, modern man would collapse into a catatonic state.

    • You can call me Al

      I have read this whole thread of comments again, mainly because I am confused as why we, let me say “got off to a bad start”.

      Either there are 2 of you, i.e. with the same name or I took only one of your comments out of context (as I stated above).

      Anyway happy new year.

  • Andrei

    Lets don’t be to sympathetic to Yemen, Women are treated like a bag of patato, so if this WAR in Yemen will change their mentality
    ..So let it be ..
    I am a man and I treat Humans the same
    Women ,children, men. Whit respect

    • ruca

      If you treat Humans the same
      Women ,children, men, with respect, then why are you not concerned with the massive humanitarian disaster caused by the Saudis, Brits and Yanks? Need I mention Israel in this equation?

      • Andrei

        What can I do me against that?
        I am only 1 person whit no power no guns to fight them off.
        I hope In 1 day will be PEACE in the whole world.
        If I am concerned do you think something will change??. I just hate people ho call God when they kill someone when they have sex when when they bomb…etc…
        God created you and give you the free will to do whatever you please whit your life. But people interpret God as a lover of killing infidels. God is love and compassion not war or no good God will ever tell you to kill for him he can do it itself.
        People ho kill in the name of God are pure sons of evils devil

        • Sinbad2

          God is a drug used to control inferior minds.

          • Andrei

            You are so right..
            In fact nobody knows what is he s real name or How to call it..
            I know that someone created us ..

        • iosongasingsing

          Is the only good God that of the Jews? God has been invoked in all wars for millennia, but the most killer is that of the Bible that to Abraham spared his son’s sacrifice, but asked his own son for a sacrifice.

    • Alberto Garza

      are you sympathetic to the saudis killing of thousands of innocent civilians ?

      • Andrei

        To nobody my man
        Nobody has the right to take a LIFE because you cannot give it back

      • Andrei

        No man I am not …
        The only think I want is PEACE…..
        Hi there I know you don’t know me… my name is Andrei …. I am from Romania ..in my Country at this time we celebrate Christmas.. our wishes to the world are to be PEACE… to think better before Starting a war and how actually devastating can be..

    • Brother Ma

      I agree but yemen is the lesser evil so we support them against the much worse and arrogant Saudibarbarians in this fight.

      Also, I do not think the Saudis are treating the Yemeni women ok when they capture them. Do you?

      So even if Yemeni men treat their women like shit ,the Saudibarbarians treat them much much worse.

      • Andrei

        Saudi are the worst of them. They are living on black gold and people are dying of hunger around their country
        If you look around the world the only people fighting each other are Muslim Countries, They are saying to us that they spread the word of God but they are the ones killing each other.
        Every year 10 million Muslims they convert to Christianity, which it tell me that some Muslims are waking up and see what is Good and what is bad
        That a fact…

    • occupybacon

      They are poor uneducated people, what excuse do you have for the Saudis who bomb their hospitals and food processing facilities for 3 years?

    • Sinbad2

      It seems to be common in that part of the world, Israeli women are also second class.
      But it’s their country, so if Israeli women accept that they are dirty and must be segregated from men, who are we to judge.

    • Chris P

      Please cover your face Andrei. Both men and women should be covered. You must shave your privates to be pure too.

      • Andrei

        That is not my God my God teach us to be Good An Kind not To torture my family

        • You can call me Al

          Personally, I think you should mutilate yourself, starting with your neck. I’ll give you a fiver to chop your head off.

          Weirdo.

          • Andrei
