The following footage from the Yemeni, houthi-affiliated Al-Masirah Channel shows the Saudi Battleship being attacked by Yemeni Coastal Defence.

The attack comes in response to the ongoing military aggression against the sovereign Yemeni nation, by a coalition led by Saudi-Arabia, supported by western powers, including the US.

They should have launched more missiles, one may not be enough

True but all they need is to take out the ship from operating. It’s just as effective as sinking it.

Yep, that ship was hit so hard it spun around 180° lengthwise in the water on impact. Very legit video and excellent reporting by Al Masdar.

The video has simply been taken from two angles and visibly from some kind of dinghy or small speedboat as you can see water drops on the lens. IMHO, the captain will find himself into trouble for neglecting threats : the defence systems were clearly ‘off’ as if they were in peace-time. Had such systems been on, the speed boat had been spotted for long then destroyed, there wasn’t even a reaction from the CIWS. There was already a UAE ship that took a serous hit and 2 attempts to hit US destroyers… US had their systems on and weren’t… Read more »

And at the same time, US make the Houthi’s day by attacking Qaeda, how funny!

Again the battle ships needed to be bigger ( much wider)and longer. It also needed smaller and more numerous water tight compartments and deeper draft so even multiple bombs would never reach the magazine. If this had happened we would of seen the entire US fleet engaging one ship and it would of escaped. The design flaws made it fail.
