The UK has licensed the export of a variety of military equipment to Saudi Arabia. We do not have a full picture of which specific items have been used in Yemen, but some combat aircraft have been used there. Details of export licences issued to Saudi Arabia are available in the official statistics published by the Department for International Trade on www.gov.uk/government/collections/strategic-export-controls-licensing-data.
