Every time the US gives these countries billions of dollars they turn around and spend it on the Russian Arms Market. They must be making a killing from the Obama administration.

If they were hit by the C802 as Zaphod said it would be a fair stretch to blame Russia as they are Chinese missiles .

a few countries make a version of it, but Chinese is the main exporter as far as I gather.
I posted a video of Iran making htheir own version on the last page.
Russia makes one as well.

When the war started there was a large amount of Chinese in the country .China may have been buying oil from them and selling them weapons too . I notice that Saudi tanks are great target practice for the Houthis .I think they are using Russian made missiles similar to the American TOW .

Reminds me of the book "Beyond Thirty" AKA The Lost Continent.

Basically North America sets up a DMZ in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans and lets everyone else fight it out, then about 200 years later they send a ship to find out what happened... and it turns out that Islam is the dominant power and everything has regressed back into a Medieval society.

Ironic since this book was written 100 years ago.

I get the feeling that this was set up!
a test ship? maybe failed the test?
and makes a Very good target!
I bet US set it on fire with a bomb.
just wait for a list of fake dead US navy.
just so they can start another war...

I mean this is why this is in WW3 and not some regional thing right??

We are watching East vs West Tanks/Missiles/jets whatever...

It's mainly USA vs Russia (China)
then you have your second tier..
That's mainly your Iran vs Saudi (Turkey/Syria/Israel)
then third tier..
terrorists.

and the weapons systems are filtering down.

what?

Nothing in your post is correct..

Who's ship was it?
What was it doing?
who sunk it?

all the answers are in this thread.

And that particular country is already getting blown the ef up by USA and Saudi arabia.. You knew that right? Yemen.. It's been going on for a long time now.

No I mean they definitely are. Iranian-produced versions of American, Chinese and Russian equipment primarily. With some British copies thrown in for good measure, as well as a good deal of Iranian-designed weapons.

Thanks to unjustifiable sanctions the Iranians for a long time had to rely on and expand their domestic defence industry. They have become quite adept at weapons development and manufacture. They sold these weapons (or donated them for free in some instances) to friendly states and resistance movements in the middle east. Primarily Syria, Hezbollah, Houthis (while in and out of power) and Iraq.

But you do not know that missile was from Iran.

It's more likely Iran than China, but you don't know that unless you bought the missile or sold it.

Well seeing as that missile is manufactured by Iran, I imagine the "chinese missile" was in fact an Iranian missile.

Please read up on the topics of the Iranian armaments industry and Iranian overseas armaments sales. I think this conversation would go better that way.

HUH?

the Missile is C802 which is the export name for the chinese missile. China made it first what are you talking about?

it was invented in 1989.

(YJ-82) - (C802 export name)


first unveiled in 1989 by the China Haiying Electro-Mechanical Technology Academy (CHETA), also known as the Third Academy.

C-802

Iran got theirs working in 2011 or so?

source


China has a huge history shipping missiles and arms to Yemen.. So does Iran..

You are a terrorist?

I'm not saying who supplied the missile, because I don't know.
This conversation would go better if you stopped assuming things you cannot know.

It is manufactured by Iran. The original designer is not the only producer. This applies to almost every weapon ever made.

Iran has also built Chieftain tanks under the name Mobarez. A british-designed tank.

The C-802 is manufactured by Iran under the name Noor. Iranian-built C-802s have made their way to Syria as well as Yemen.

Here is a relatively complete list of Iranian missiles, amongst other weapons

Are you saying China is not supplying these people with weapons??

I'm talking about a line of proof.. You don't have it.

So it could be likely an Iranian missile. You don't know that.

Many countries make that missile. all of those countries are smuggling weapons in.




Al-Masirah's footage of the missile being launched was shot at night, making it impossible to identify the system involved. However, it did appear to show a booster motor dropping away from the missile after the launch, which is consistent with the Chinese-made C-802 missile that is in service with the Yemeni Navy.

Yemeni rebels claim third anti-ship missile attack

It's proven Chinese C802 Missiles ARE IN Yemen....

And the rebels are using them..

How are you assumming so much?

Nope, just China and Iran. China don't give weapons away for free, and don't supply them to non-national combatants, and haven't done since the 80s.

A basic understanding of Iranian foreign policy, the Iranian armaments industry and the situation in the middle east leads to the inference that Iran supplied the missiles. So they should as well.
