The Saudi police shot down a toy drone which had been flying over the Al Khuzama neighborhood in the country’s capital of Riyadh, where the royal palace is located, local media reported on Saturday.

The authorities are currently investigating into the circumstances which have lead to the drone flying near in the royal palace area, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

Fake news to create fake reality. Who knows, what is a background.
Pancir S2 was very effective in protecting russian air base against drones.
would saudis accept
1. Pancir S1 and russian electronic countermeasures, or
2. iron dome from israel
in both ways they are fu.ked up.

Pantsir is a dual SAM+CIWS 30mm/2x2500RPM dual gun, not an ECM system. Missiles range 20 km with 15km ceiling.
Iron Dome ranges 70km.
Saudis use THAAD, Patriot, improved Hawk and the 35mm Skyguard as a CIWS.
These are far from being bad systems.
As soon as oil will run dry, they’ll be totally fu.ked up.
