    The Yemeni Air Force and Air Defense opposed to the Arab coalition, introduced a new locally developed surface-to-air missile, according a news released on the website of the Official Yemen Press Agency SABA, January 10, 2018. The new missile would have shotdown Tornado combat aircraft of Saudi-led coalition while it was flying over Saada province and hit another enemy F-15 plane over the capital Sanaa.

    On Monday, January 8, 2017, Yemen’s army spokesman assistant, Colonel Aziz Rashid, has announced the development and manufacturing of a new air defense missile able to destroy modern military aircraft. Despite Saudi coalition attacks to get the Yemen’s Air Defense System out of service, the unit continues to be operational and now is able to destroy enemy military aircrafts.

    According a Yemeni statement, the Yemeni Air Force and Air Defense Unit vowed to keep developing the air defense arsenal to defend the homeland against any foreign aggression.

    On January 8, 2018, the Houthis released the thermal infrared video footage, via its Al Masirah television network, showing the destruction of Saudi aircraft F-15S, which shows the FLIR Systems logo in the frame which could explain that the missile is equipped with a guidance system.

    The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle is an American twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter aircraft designed by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing). In October 2010, the U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress today of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Saudi Arabia including 84 F-15SA fighter. The contract also included the upgrade of the existing Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) fleet of seventy (70) F-15S multi-role fighters to the F-15SA configuration

    In December 2017, US has presented evidence that officials said proved that Iran had supplied short-range ballistic missiles to Houthi rebels in Yemen.

    The complete video also shows a FLIR sensor turret on an improvised ground mount could have record the missile shot result. The Saudi state-run news agency SPA confirmed the crash of one figter, but said it was the result of a technical fault, not enemy fire.

    According latest information about the air defense capability of the Yemeni Air Force and Air Defense, they are equipped with Soviet-made S75 (SA-2) short-range surface-to-air defense missile system, Chinese Man-portable Air Defense Systems (MANPADS) FN-6 or Russian SA-7 (Strela-2).

    Mate these rebels can't make sams or the whole of yemen for that matter. If it was that simple ISIS would have done it. Syrian rebels would have done it

    Dumbest pilot alive, why would you turn on your afterburners when a heat seeking missile is after you? It makes your flares useless. Besides, he didn't even make a turn.

    However, the F-15 is more than capable of handling a SAM missile.

    Pak has Chinese mid-range air defense system, you don't need to search about where to begin with. I think there is no will, otherwise you can develop them easily.
    Well pointed.

    It's Yemeni army's R&D institutions. AD systems are not that simple to be developed by rebel groups

    Such a fu(ktard!
    Afterburner is on, absolutely no evasive maneuvers, seems he saw the missile warning and his brains exploded and all what he did in the adrenaline rush is he just push the bloody throttle with full of his strength. Where aircraft banks towards right in the end is seems due to stiff hand tilted towards right.
    WTF with SAF ??? don't they have got some better trained pilot available for their premier birds ???
    Seems all he tried is to run away like a coward as he heard missile warning and when beep of missile approach rigs he just lost his mind probably already dead by a heart attack.

    look at the video the entire aircraft was lit up (due to air friction) probably trying to out run it(the missile). notice he used flares so he would have known he is in deep doo doo. i wonder how high he was flying ?

    He seems such a chut!a tat e didn't even tried even a friction of a bloody evasive manoeuvre ... he didn't even dive or fully bank aside so missile may take a turn and lose some speed so he may get some chance to make another move ... Suc a doup!

    Its human instinct when they are starving to make missiles and suddenly develop like a first world nation.

    He is definitely maneuvering and banking left. The error he made is that his evasive maneuvers and flare ejection are for missile on the tail, whereas the missile came at him from the side. He should have put the missile on his tail then performed a rolling flare release. That is, IF the missile was heat seeking. If RWR is going off, you have a radar homing missile coming at you and you need to release DRFM decoys.

    @gambit your opinion would be invaluable.
