Day after day, the Yemenis surprise the Saudi-led aggression, despite its war and its imposed siege for nearly four years. With every loss and failure of the forces of aggression in their desperate attempts, the Yemenis reveal the production of a new weapon and a new surprise.
A Sea Waged with Fire
In the context of its solid and effective system of defense of the Yemeni homeland, its waters, beaches, and ports, the Yemeni naval force revealed one of its many amazing defensive capabilities that are growing with the circumstances and keeping abreast of the latest developments in the strategic stage. The war media presented a documentary film called ” Raging Sea”, where for the first time, it revealed the manufacturing of naval mines named “Mursad”, which are domestic, with Yemeni expertise and competence mines, in addition to the system “Mandep 1” that was announced about before.
The Features of the Film
The film reveals how the Yemeni naval forces in a short period of time and with the Yemeni capabilities and expertise were able to establish complexes for development, manufacturing and military research. The film showed naval forces in direct clashes with the crew ship of the UAE ”Swift”, which was destroyed by the Yemeni naval forces on the first day of October 2016.
The scenes show that the naval forces and coastal defense clash directly With the remains of the UAE barge crew for more than three hours after being targeted with a suitable missile. The film also showed pictures of “warships”, as well as three minesweepers, including “Gansa”, which were all destroyed and taken out of service.
The film reviewed a number of operations which were carried out by the naval forces and coastal defense off the coast of Yemen and in the port of Mukhaa, which were operations that were carried out in retaliation from the massacres of the Saudi-led aggression against the Yemeni people since March 2015.
The Naval Advanced Defense systems
The Yemeni naval force possesses lethal missile systems, including those that have not yet been revealed. The most prominent missiles are anti-ship missiles, battleships, and containers. The Mandab 1 system is one of the most advanced systems developed, which can reach more than 300 meters and was used during the Red Sea battles, destroying many Saudi and UAE naval warships during the battles.
The scale of development and technological and military modernization of the Yemeni navy can be determined by the production of speedboats, where their ability to maneuver and carry out offensive operations against what it gets in its way from the hostile warships. It also can carry a number of fighters to carry out targets in the beaches and coasts.
Mursad Naval Mines
The most recent military system that was revealed is known as the “Mursad” which comes in the framework of the defensive weapons of the Yemeni Navy. Images of Mursad show their vast effectiveness through its destructive power, in addition to its accuracy. Some of its types explode immediately as objects get in contact with it, other types have sensitive techniques so that it explodes at a certain depth under the right weight pressure of battleships and ships.
Yemen’s Strongest Message
We can say that with this rapid qualitative transformation of the Yemeni naval forces, resulted in making a difference in the military fields and the war in general, which exert more pressure on Riyadh and Abu Dhabi to take a stand on the aggression on this country and seek the search for solutions other than the military resolve, which has also failed to defeat the Yemeni fighters.
