A broad range of advanced equipment such as missiles, armored vehicles, rifles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and air defense missile systems was put on display.

The exercise was held on the occasion of the eighth anniversary of the September 21 revolution.

In 2014, the people of Yemen led a popular uprising against the Saudi-backed unpopular regime of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

As protests gripped the country, the Ansarallah resistance movement on September 21 took control of the capital Sana’a following a rapid advance south from their northern stronghold of Sa'ada.
