https://wikileaks.org/yemen-files/rel... Yemeni forces have targeted and destroyed an Emirati military vessel in a rocket attack near the Red Sea port city of Mokha, al-Masirah TV says. The C-802 is the export upgraded version of the Chinese anti-ship missile YJ-8 (Chinese: 鹰击-8, literally "Eagle Strike"; NATO reporting name: CSS-N-8 Saccade).

The ship is a wave-piercing, aluminum-hulled, commercial catamaran with military enhancements, such as a helicopter flight deck, vehicle deck, small boat and unmanned vehicle launch and recovery capability, and a communications suite. While from the front the vessel looks like a trimaran, the center hull does not rest in the water and is not used for buoyancy. Propulsion is provided by directional water jets, so the ship does not have propellers or a rudder for steering, and can maneuver in twelve feet of water.

As of July 2015 the vessel is reported to be operated by the UAE's National Marine Dredging Company. The United Arab Emirates are part of the ongoing Saudi-led War in Yemen.

Die HSV-2 Swift ist ein Hochgeschwindigkeits-Katamaran [über 90 km/h] in militärischer Nutzung. Es wird zurzeit als Kommandoschiff zur Kriegsführung mit Seeminen eingesetzt. Die HSV-2 war Teil der Marine der Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate (VAE) die wiederum Teil der Saudischen Agression gegen Jemen sind.
