Ya'll Nibbiars Houthis managed to turn Soviet-made R-27T and R-73E air-to-air missiles into ground-to-air missiles, both types are guided by infrared homing, and has the “fire and forget” feature. The manage to shot-down a MQ9 UCAV & damage a F15 & a F16.

Ya'll Nibbiars @aditya g Nibba ne kya bhaut kaha.
SAM for Assured Retaliation - "SAMAR" Improvised system by Indian Army, they have mounted R-73 on its launch rails on the BM-21's arms - with PTZ cameras for visually cueing the targets. Wonder if the operator wears a Helmet Mounted Cueing Sight.

Although the idea & improvisation is commendable, I am afraid this won't be packing much of a punch. Its range is probably around or less than 20kms. Using R-27T might be a better option.

The best it can do is shoot down low-flying medium sized UAVs & helicopters at point-blank range.
