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.

  1. And at the same time, US make the Houthi’s day by attacking Qaeda, how funny!
    More on the airstrike which actually wasn’t at all an airstrike but a Seal Team 6 operation :

    Which allowed them to nonetheless send a score of qaedans to their 72 virgins but also to seize hard drives and intel.
    It is told that Obama admin wouldn’t have authorized the action and ROEs will be changed as Obama led the militaries at a level where they have to wait to be shot at and wounded/killed before having the right to shoot… Many thins like that surfaced from the pilots too…

    • 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 hit. This is visibly one of the US-made frigates KSA bought, there are serious defence systems aboard, the missile could have been either jammed or downed.
      The guys on the speedboat were really lucky : a Phalanx CIWS is nothing else than a Vulcan Gatling cannon with automatic targetting systems and visibly, they were in range. 4000 RPM of 20mm coming at you at Mach3 and staying locked on target draw a metal wall in front of incoming missiles but are also devastating for small boats. Last generation of shells can also shoot incoming torpedoes or frogmen… CIWS are even more and more used to protect ground bases as they also intercept mortar+artillery shells. Note that such systems are a Russian invention.
