US military trying on the Russian Arctic

54
About four hundred US Marine soldiers in 2018 will be stationed in the Norwegian garrison of Setermoen, located in the central part of the polar province of Troms, reports Utro.ru with reference to the newspaper Klassekampen.




The US commanders do not hide their goals, and openly declares that it considers Norway as a “battlefield in a potential future conflict” with Russia.

Norwegians are building buildings and structures in which Americans and some kind of "heavy equipment" will be placed soon.

It is not yet clear whether the American contingent will be limited to 400 by military personnel, since it is the availability of a quartering space that is the only limitation on their number.

This information was confirmed by several sources in the Norwegian military. However, the Deputy Minister of Defense gave an evasive answer.

“These plans are called polishinel's state secret. Deputy Minister of Defense Eystein Beu did not give a clear answer to the question of whether Norway plans to mark US Marines in central Troms, but said that the government is ready to allow the Allies to train more in Norway, ”writes the Norwegian edition.

    - Norwegians are building buildings and structures in which the Americans and some “heavy equipment” will soon be placed.
    Norway violates the OWN Base Declaration of 1949, “... must not enter into agreements with other countries that obligate it to provide bases for the armed forces of foreign states on the territory of Norway if Norway was not attacked or threatened with attack.”

    US military in Norway for a long time.
    I’ll insert a piece from my news, which for some reason was not published wink

    Since November 2016, the Marine Corps continues to test a new theory - the installation of a silencer on each small arms unit in the battalion, from M4 rifles to machine guns of the 50 caliber. The first unit armed with the proposed concept was the Bravo company of the 1th battalion of the 2th marine division, stationed in Norway. After three months of exercises and exercises at the shooting ranges, the first results were summed up.
    According to reviews of the company’s servicemen, the use of silencers increases the effectiveness of command and control of units in combat, as previously “because of the roar of shots, the commander could not communicate with subordinates at a distance of more than 100”. In addition, "no need to use hearing protection when shooting." The main advantage is the element of surprise when performing training attacks. The constant use of communications by the commanders of the divisions forces them to carry extra batteries with them and causes so-called. "Tunnel effect" - loss of peripheral vision.
    The disadvantages of using silencers include high heat when firing, the need for frequent cleaning and heavy weight.
    The main supplier of muzzle brakes, flame arresters and silencers for the US military is SureFire. For example, the SOCOM 556 RC model of this company weighs 510 grams, has a length of 15 cm and is made of heat-resistant steel with a ceramic coating. Installing silencers on all small arms of a battalion will cost approximately 700 000 dollars.
