That's not a flaw, that's how it works. If you put the sound up you can hear the missile isn't intercepted until all 5 are fired; it keeps firing until the enemy missile is hit just in case.(Original post by Palmyra)
There's a video on Twitter showing the interceptors being launched and a brief analysis:
All the Houthis have to do is fire a few more at the same time and then we'd see how good the Patriot system really is (I believe not very)
I'm sure the patriots won't have much issue taking down Iranian missiles

How many interceptor missiles do Saudi have? At a rate of 5 interceptors per one (very rudimentary) missile, I'd guess it's not as many as they'd need.
You got a larger version of your av? I can't read it

I make no comment on the validity of said claims suffice i can see the rational for their thoughts.
I feel people should bare in mind that the Saudis are actively and deliberately targeting civilians in a war that has been described as a genocide. The houthis are in every single way at a disadvantage in this war so they can hardly be expected to play 'honorably' and to think they should is, with all due respect, cute.
