The Strategic Significance of Downing US-made MQ-9 Drones by Yemen’s Armed Forces

Yemen: The Yemeni Armed Forces continue to achieve significant accomplishments in their battle against the US-Israeli-British evil triangle. These achievements range from maritime operations targeting and intercepting enemy ships, including those heading towards the Israeli entity, in the Red Sea, Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean, and the Mediterranean.

 

In addition to the maritime operations, the Armed Forces have also initiated aerial operations, inflicting a hot hell upon the American enemy and banning their aircraft from the Yemeni skies. Since November of last year the air defense forces have successfully shot down four MQ-9 Reaper drones during their aggressive activities in several provinces.

It is worth noting that these drone interceptions are not coincidental but rather a deliberate and parallel strategy to the escalating maritime operations conducted by the Armed Forces. Therefore, their significance is of strategic nature, as they deal a severe blow to the American enemy. The enemy has lost one of its most important and advanced reconnaissance and spying aircraft, as well as a dangerous technology it relied upon to carry out attacks against opposing forces in the region, particularly the Axis of Resistance. These drones were utilized in assassination operations, including the assassinations of the martyr President Saleh al-Sammad, Commander Qasem Soleimani, and several leaders of the Axis of Resistance in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and elsewhere.

Consequently, the importance of MQ-9 drones to the Americans surpasses that of other types of aircraft due to their novelty, capabilities, high cost, and the results they achieve. Therefore, the most significant details and capabilities are highlighted in this context:

MQ-9 drones are technologically advanced aircraft, of which the US Air Force possesses only around 90 units.

Their main missions include reconnaissance, intelligence gathering, target identification, and strike coordination with heavy fighter aircraft in target acquisition and engagement.

Capabilities:

- These aircraft possess an advanced radar system, high-resolution cameras, and sensors that can scan the operational area and collect information within a 360-degree radius. They can spy on communication systems, penetrate them, and identify both moving and stationary targets.

- They can fly at an altitude of 15 km and cover a distance of 1,000 miles for up to 27 hours.

- They are armed with various types of high-precision missiles, including eight laser-guided bombs such as GDAM and 16 Hellfire missiles designed for assassinations and striking moving targets.

- The unit cost of each drone can reach up to $30 million.

These capabilities and specifications make this aircraft one of the gems of American industries, subject to strict secrecy and restrictions regarding ownership and export. American experts have emphasized the need to restrict the technology of this aircraft to the manufacturers and the US military, with a strong emphasis on its use in a manner that prevents it from falling into the hands of other countries and leaking its constructional information.

Therefore, the Yemeni Armed Forces have successfully shot down numerous MQ-9 Reaper drones in their defensive operations. This represents another major blow to the American enemy, as a significant number of the drones that have been brought down during the aggression to date were in semi-intact condition, allowing Yemen to exploit and reverse-engineer their technologies.

Consequently, the Americans face two military disasters. Firstly, the loss of this strategic weapon, which is a fundamental pillar of their aggression against Yemen. Secondly, the seizure of the drone's technologies, structural composition, and classified information by the Armed Forces. This will enhance Yemen’s ability to replicate and improve upon the drone, as well as develop more efficient methods and tactics to counter it.

Another important aspect worth mentioning in this context is the state of development of our armed forces' defensive capabilities. Shooting down such sophisticated technology from complex aircraft is a significant achievement that confirms the advancement of our ground-to-air systems. These drones are equipped with advanced protection systems, including jamming and electronic warfare capabilities, as well as stealth capabilities. Therefore, neutralizing them signifies a new stage in the development of defense systems, which will put an end to the rampant presence of the aircraft of the US-British aggression alliance in Yemen's airspace and sovereignty.
