Russian army: the most "off-road" army in the world

7
There are situations in which the Russian army in the world simply has no competitors. In particular, this concerns the capabilities of the engineering troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. For example, the ability to induce ice crossing. Of course, many armies of the world are capable of this, but then the equipment weighing 120 tons at the same time passes through the pontoons — this is where our country is an absolute record holder. No one, except us, can decide on such things on such a scale.


Guiding a river crossing in warm weather will not surprise anyone. It takes only an hour. First, the assault squads capture the bridgehead on the other side of the river, then floating sections of the bridge are dumped into the river, and these sections are brought together directly on the water. The crossing is ready. Now they can go through it Tanks, artillery and even complexes with intercontinental missiles.

But what if the equipment needs to be transferred to the other side in the winter season? The task is complicated even by several times, but by an order of magnitude.

    Ice meter LD-1200, a good device.

      In Samara, we have constant traffic jams on bridges across the Samarka river on a weekday ... you lose an hour, or even more ... I suggested at least in the winter to make a crossing .... sent just to the military ... and they sent farther...

    An article at the school wall newspaper level: "Urya, we have pontoons."
    If we recall our history, we will find out that we knew how to transport armored trains across the river without a bridge (in the ZhZL series there is a book about Konev, he is the head of correspondence of the armored train) in the Civil War. Everyone remembers the "Road of Life" through Lake Ladoga and this is under bombardment and shelling for minutes. If THEN they could cross, and now with the current development of technology we do

      And we can and manage, here the question is different. It's a question of time. The time of construction of such a crossing and the time of the transfer of the standard echelon, the faster the steeper

    Russian army: the most "off-road" army in the world
    Well ... in Russia it was always difficult with roads, but there were always "directions"

    We don’t need the ditches, we’re used to such roads, but right now you don’t want any technical equipment so it’s not a problem.
