look to me exactly the same as Austrian one , by the way does all AK47 are sold by Russia, each year we sell about 500million Dollar of light arms around the world , send us serial number and we may tell you who is the original buyer (after lifting of the sanctions and promising not to prosecute our buyers, after all we have to protect them)
Is it really so difficult for you to believe Iran arms them? How is it even debatable?

That is the distinctive pistol grip of an Iranian AM-50 Sayyad .50 cal heavy sniper rifle. Modelled on the Austrian Steyr HS.50 rifle, the curved pistol grip is the primary visual difference in the Iranian made weapon.,

Compare that to the grip of the Austrian Steyr :

as I said each year we sell 500 million Dollar of small arms . find the the one who provide them with weapon not the one who produce it.

Of course everyone knows Iran is their main backer against Saudi Arabia since they want to bock down the Saudis in Yemen, Saudi Arabia did the same to Iran in Syria when KSA led its gulf/Arab allies to support the Syrian revolution and rebels against Assad backed by Iran.
Both countries have been engaged in a proxy war for supremacy/influence in the region . This is not even debatable . Iran is only furthering and protecting its own interests in Yemen just like Saudi Arabia is doing the same . None is wrong or right here. Each is only after their own interests which is fair enough in geo politics.
Israel.is watching while eating its popcorn by the side . 😁

Yeah? So why keep delivering them?
-arms traffickers business
- General or scnedule IRGC support for Houthis
-Special request from houthis
-Houthis maybe done have certain equipment or reagents/raw materials to make these atm


but what do all of this matter? LMAO, someone like u wants to talk smart with me about stupid US navy weapons shipments to yemen when USN doesnt intercept most of these shipments, cuz Iran understands the region better than US, AND Saudis are about to fully and completely LOSE in Yemen..DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAAT??? you focus on symptoms, like trump is, instead of bigger picture, which is that any entity that US supplies weapons to in large amounts, usually loses their war, NEXT UP IS UKRAINE!!

I cant understand iranians. At one point they cheer for yemen and boast about their weapons and stuff but then in such cases they deny any help to yemen. Why the hypocrisy? Why not admit it and help them openly?

Because this never was the discussion, and it isn't correct either. Yemen is just going to be another Syria/Afghanistan/Iraq with no real victor, up until Iran gets toppled down.

I have noticed they have been making desperate claims hoping for conclusion I guess they are fatigued and want this to end while it is only the beginning. 80% of the country is out there hands and sort of packed in from all sides. The tribes they are fighting are solid and relentless. The houthis lost 16.000 forces in just last 6 months which is high casualities only in one front

This analogy can't be fully applied to Yemen.
The losers might as well be Iran and the Houthis.
You can't call anyone an invader because the war is between the Houthis and the Yemen government, both of which are native to Yemen. You may call the GCC invaders but Iran can also be considered an invader.

which Yemen government exactly ? the illegitimate one who refused to held election , and before escaping to the invaders resigned or the one who was supported by the Yemen parliament and is still in Sanaa

I doubt such a plan ever existed from first day and for sure not today in Iranian politicians' minds to make Saudis bog down in such a quagmire ... Saudis dragged themselves into it all pretty much by themselves waging a war thinking it'd be an easy swift victory as they claimed "we would wrap it up in 3 weeks".
These naive presumptions ain't new or unique to Saudis it took American 20 years to get out of Afghanistan or Bibi addressing congress on the invasion of Iraq back in 2002 quote: "I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region" did it have?? or when Trump ripped the N deal claimed Iranian would call him to make a better deal.
I dunno how they make such stupid mistakes but apparently these miscalculations would never come to an end as they still think its weapons that brings them victory, well Saudis fly F15 and enjoy support of European countries and the US whilst Houthis receive weapons by a fishing vessel ... then why shiny beautiful state of art weapons of Saudis would not bear fruit for the coalition ???

The point ain't Iran sending rifles to Houthis which could be purchased from black market easily the Q is how Iran managed to make such an alliance with them that has remained intact despite 7 years of war.
Something that they never understand.

By the way Iran offered 4 steps plan that could have prevented the war in first month after Saudis started it, they simply were so cocky that even laughed at it ... you reap what you sow.
