Yemeni Houthis presented their offensive potential

In the capital of Yemen, Sana’a, the government led by the Ansar Allah (Houthis) movement held an exhibition of offensive potential and the achievements of the military industry. Various models of weapons and equipment were presented that are produced, converted from old weapons or assembled in Yemen from components supplied from Iran (although this is not officially recognized officially), which are smuggled through the blockade established by the Saudi coalition.


The Yemeni Zulfikar missile is clearly another variant of the missiles being assembled in Yemen from the Qiam missile components sent from Iran.


They showed the Quds-2 cruise missile, although there are no special external differences from the already known Quds-1. These missiles are also assembled from parts sent from Iran, the original Iranian name is still unknown, but the data model of the missiles flashed back in February 2017 at an exhibition of defense achievements at the Imam Hussein University of the IRGC in Tehran It seems that there is an optoelectronic seeker or something else covered with a protective cap in the bow.


The Nakal rocket, both in appearance and index, is clearly a variation of the already well-known Badr-F rocket.


Guided missiles / rockets Qasim and Saeer. It looks like these are the next modifications of the Iranian 333-mm guided missiles Fajr-4 and others.


And this is another unknown Qasim 2 missile, it looks like something similar to missiles from the Iranian Fateh-110 \ 313 \ Zolfaghar \ Dezful family. Yemen and collect there.

Different missiles, although the dimensions, in my opinion, are not entirely correct.


Various UAVs – the line of Samad, Qasef-2K, etc., almost all are based on Iranian developments and are assembled from components supplied by Iran, and some small drones are made from commercial Chinese copters, etc. Qasef-2K is a modification of the Iranian UAV Ababil-2.



The Samad UAV line is based on Iranian UAVs created for the IRGC of Iran, their original Iranian name is not known exactly, therefore they are sometimes called Shahed-X.


New UAV from the Samad line – Samad-4.


Armed multicopter Rujum, here is the case when it is based not on Iranian, but Chinese drone – commercial model YANGDA YD6-1000S.

For the first time in Yemen, these Iranian “kamikaze” drones, collected there, were officially shown, which were used for the famous attack on the Saudi Aramco plant in Abqayq in September 2019. In Yemen, they were named Wa’id, the original Iranian name, again, is still unknown.

Yemen sea mines.


Grenade launchers, including copies of the RPG-7, probably assembled from components supplied from Iran, and it seems like a copy of the same simplified non-collapsible version of the RPG-29 that Iran produces along with the usual collapsible. The quality, of course, is also noticeably worse than the Iranian one, but the Yemenis work under bombing and the equipment they have is certainly not equal to that in Iran.
