        Saudi is enjoy complete air dominance, but it looks like the left hand doesn't t know what the right is doing and there is no coherent combined arms plan of operations.
        There is very much a JHQ, including top commanders from all services. They're running the show. There is a coherent ops plan. Most of it was realized meanwhile. There is plenty of high tech (incl. UAVs and locally-upgraded M60A3s). The RSAF is flying 24/7, providing CAS on minutes notice etc. There are US and British advisors. There is a quite effective PR campaign. Everything is in the place.

        Problem is that the war is fought for idiotic purposes - and unwinnable.

        Sound familiar, doesn't it...?

            I quite agree, even a WW2 panzergrenadier company would probably roll up the attackers in no time.

              Here's a new one. Infantry assault on an M-60, first shot from an M-79 Osa (Asked about the source of these a few pages back, no one seems to know) followed up by lots and lots of RPG-7.

              • Perhaps Saudi is biding their time, and when enough is enough..they'll cross the border in force?

                • Saudis are sticking to lessons from 2009-2010: they were crossing the border at will, early on, but do nothing more.

                  Meanwhile, 'problem' is that their ground forces are preoccuppied trying to defend Jizzan and Najran from attacks by Houthis, Yemeni Army special forces and the insurgency of Ahrar an-Najran.

                    Is it possible the M79 is an misidentified French made LRAC F1 ?

                      Could be, but we've seen M-79 launchers (no ammo) in other Yemeni videos. Only F-1 I've seen turn up in the region was a single example in Syria a month or so ago.

                      • EDIT: Turns out these are loyalist fighters with new equipment received from the Saudis:

                          • RAF Bombs Diverted to Saudis for Yemen Strikes


                            By Andrew Chuter

                            LONDON — Britain is transferring Paveway IV precision guided bombs originally earmarked for the Royal Air Force to Saudi Arabia to enable the Gulf state to build stocks of the weapon being used against targets in Yemen and Syria, sources here said.

                            The Ministry of Defence has swapped delivery positions on the production line at Raytheon UK to ensure the Saudi Royal Air Force has weapon stocks to continue strike missions with the highly accurate 500-pound bomb.
