Not strictly armor-related but I'll relate a couple of interesting stories from Yemen nonetheless. I was talking to a couple of Bahraini F-16 drivers last week and they had just come back from flying in Yemen. One of them said during his first sortie there, he as flying as the 4-ship flight lead but since it was his first combat sortie, he was a flying a two-seat F-16D with another pilot in the back who already had several sorties there under his belt. He said when he got to the target area he was pissed to discover a whole bunch of clouds obscuring the target area when the weather officer had promised it was going to be cloudless and clear. So he mentioned to the other pilot on the interphone, "What the hell is wrong with our weather guy? He said he was going to be clear but I can't see the damned target through all these clouds!" To which the backseat pilot said, "Those aren't clouds. That's AAA [anti-aircraft artillery]." "Oh..."
The other guy said he got diverted to a CAS sortie to hit a rebel tank on the top of a mountain. He said when they got there, on top of a really steep, tall mountain, there was a Houthi tank. He couldn't figure out how they got it up there. He said his was told afterwards that the rebels bury their tanks almost completely in dirt to hide them and also spray them down with water after they fire in an attempt to obscure the IR signature.
