A senior Yemeni military official announced that the country’s army will unveil new anti-ship missiles and combat drones in the near future to show its defense power to the Saudi aggressors. “The planes include Qasef 1 combat drone and three other drones named Rased, Raqib and Hudhud 1,” Head of the Yemeni Defense Ministry’s Military Industries Samad al-Madafi told FNA on Tuesday. “We will unveil anti-warship, anti-air and anti-drone missiles soon,” he added. According to Madafi, Qasef-1 (Striker-1), has a wingspan of three meters and a hull length of 2.5 meters. The drone has a flight endurance of 120 minutes, and is capable of carrying a payload of 30 kilograms.

Another remote-controlled aircraft, dubbed Hudhud-1 (Hoopoe-1), has a flight endurance of 90 minutes, and an operational radius of up to 30 kilometers. It has a wingspan of 1.9 meters and a hull length of 1.5 meters. The Raqib (Rival) drone can fly as far as 15 kilometers for 90 minutes. It is used in reconnaissance missions and is capable of either storing information or transferring data via online connections. The Rased (Surveyor) unmanned aerial vehicle, which can perform a variety of functions, including aerial reconnaissance and surveillance as well as monitoring battlefield besides geophysical surveying, has a wingspan of 2.2 meters and a hull length of one meter. The drone has a flight endurance of 120 minutes plus an operational radius of up to 35 kilometers.

Earlier this month, Yemeni army forces launched a locally designed and manufactured ballistic missile towards an area deep inside Saudi Arabia in response to Riyadh’s atrocious aerial bombardments against the crisis-stricken Arab country. The media bureau of the operations command in Yemen published a series of photos of the Borkan-2 (Volcano-2) ballistic missile it used to hit a military base on the outskirts of Saudi capital city of Riyadh.

On September 2, 2016, Yemeni forces fired an indigenous Borkan-1 (Volcano-1) missile against a stationary target in the Saudi city of Ta’if, located more than 700 kilometers Southeast of Riyadh.Iran says no change in Riyadh’s behavior
