Yemeni forces destroy 85 armored vehicles of Saudi-led coalition in June

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Yemeni army destroyed 85 armored and military vehicles, including five tanks belonging to coalition’s troops in several fronts over June month, a military source in armors unit said.

Meanwhile, nine gatherings of militiamen were targeted with guided missiles, killing and wounding tens of them over the same month.
I really would like to know how the export versions of the US models that are being taken apart by the Houthis compare to the rigs that we ride into combat.

After watching that video (posted on the blog earlier) I am really starting to question the wisdom of depending on the JLTV and anything lighter for REAL combat.  Not patrols or insurgency but combat operations against a peer opponent.

In that same vein I wonder if the Bradley and AMPV not to mention the ACV are armored enough to do what we'll need them to do in the coming fights.
