To the East? NATO obliges the EU to adapt the roads of the Baltic States to the transfer of armored vehicles

45
The European Commission presented a plan that describes changes in the transport system in the European Union. The changes are primarily related to the requirements of NATO. Changes include the legal framework that will simplify the movement of NATO troops between European countries - the borders for military personnel and military equipment will be transparent.


Also, the NATO leadership is not satisfied with the existing transport network regarding the possibility of its use for moving heavy military equipment.

To the East? NATO obliges the EU to adapt the roads of the Baltic States to the transfer of armored vehicles


First of all, we are talking about the so-called “North Sea - Baltic” corridor, which goes from Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany in the west to Poland and the Baltic countries in the east. An analysis conducted by NATO showed that the roads in this “corridor” are not suitable for moving large amounts of military equipment along them. We are talking primarily about the Baltic countries and the local railways. The report stated that the bridges and the railway itself simply could not withstand the movement of trains on them, for example, with tanks or self-propelled artillery.

This leads to the fact that the European Union, at the suggestion of NATO, is now “concerned” with the modernization of the transport system of the said North Sea-Baltic corridor, especially in its eastern part. Completion of the modernization is scheduled for the end of 2019.

This fact itself suggests that NATO keeps in mind the possibility of a massive transfer of heavy military equipment to the borders of the Russian Federation.

      The only weapon system that is most resistant to nuclear explosion factors is heavy armored vehicles. Both for the protection of personnel, and in terms of maintaining combat effectiveness. Because Russia relied on nuclear systems, there’s nowhere to go, logistics must be fenced. Also, the experience of the ATO in the Donbass showed that it’s too early to write off tanks, self-propelled guns, etc. So after all, Russians still don’t rest on their laurels, but they make Armata, Terminator and so on. Well, fortified bridges and roads are useful for our tanks wassat

      Plus, the reconstruction for transporting equipment heavier than it was in the USSR along the roads and bridges of the Baltic states will require very significant funds.
      And immeasurably more means.
      So you can frighten a hedgehog with naked opera, but the hedgehog is not very afraid.

        And when you consider the fact that the railway gauge in the former social. republics are wider than in Europe, this entails a loss of time for reloading equipment from train to train at the border, and this is a waste of time. Replacing the railroad track with the Euro standard will also take a lot of time.

          It’s easier and cheaper to build a wall, as it were, the “Iron Curtain” in Europe. So that our tanks do not break through. It’s strange how it turns out: Russia is an aggressor, but it’s inconvenient for them to attack Russia.
          Russia does not aggressively resist. Normally.

            I don’t know how long it will take when replacing wheelsets with rolling stock, but on a locomotive this procedure is not at all quick. I used to work at the Depot as a mechanic for repairing a diesel engine’s chassis. And again, what capacities do these countries have in terms of the availability of a sufficient number of car repair depots and locksmiths? But where are the same components, in the quantity that will be needed to re-equip the car fleet? It will take years, not months. And with the roads, then there is generally an ambush awaiting them. They probably do not know at all that caterpillar equipment is done for off-road. Our old but nimble T-34, like Ivan Susanin, will lead their tank armada into our swamps and remember what they called.

      After the demarche of Putin, the Poles and the Pribalds went through several stages, i.e. the stage of negation (they say this cannot be, it is impossible), the stage of hysteria and the stage of hopelessness is suitable. Experienced NATO psychiatrists will now pretend that the therapy is successful ... This is ridiculous to you, and the Russophobes are not laughing, it’s easy for them to make fun of the Russians, when we are in ruin, and Russia gets stronger, they have a terrible fear, for a thousand-year-old Stay with a sim invincible neighbor marked at the gene level. Of course, the highest form of this phenomenon can be called a jump in the window with a cry: "Russians are coming!" Old Bzhizik, was so hungry in statements at the fall of the Russian Federation, but died of longing when Russia rose again.

    Let the wallets shake. But it will only be good for NATO - the question? The NATO command itself admits that they have a little difficulty with logistics and this depends not only on roads and bridges, but also on the military bureaucracy of the bloc.

      If we consider that our equipment weighs less than ours to 50 tons, and Abrams and Leopards are not less than 60, then it will be difficult for them to search for bridges.

      I remember at the military department solving the problem on the march in the Leningrad region, so I had to sweat to find a way for the S-300 division. And then a couple of bridges had to "drive" in excess. And there the maximum weight is less than that of the tank
