The Oryx Handbook of Pre-war Yemeni Fighting Vehicles


By Stijn Mitzer and Joost Oliemans

This list only includes vehicles and equipment in service with the Yemeni Army before the Houthi takeover in Yemen in 2014/2015. Vehicles and equipment acquired and created during the ongoing conflict are not included in this list.

Because of the war currently raging in Yemen a lot of military equipment is being destroyed as well as acquired and created, meaning some entries listed here may soon no longer be appropriate. The goal of this list is to comprehensively catalogue the prewar Yemeni military as well as clarify what military equipment is currently available to Yemeni parties on the battlefield.

Civilian trucks towing military trailers are not included in the list.
