US Media: US Forces Prepare for Winter War


In the United States, they decided to conduct exercises in climatic conditions, which were attributed to winter. The military personnel of the 1st battalion of the 120th field artillery regiment of the National Guard of Wisconsin were involved in the exercises. The exercises were held at Grayling Camp (Michigan).


The command of the U.S. National Guard regiment noted that during the exercises, attention was paid to two main things: the actions of military personnel at low temperatures during training and combat operations, as well as how technical staff (service men) ensured the readiness of military equipment.

In the American press, articles on conducting exercises of the National Guard in Michigan came out under high-profile headlines about "preparing US forces for the winter war." The exercises themselves were called "Winter strike."

It is noted that in the course of the exercises, the interaction of the National Guard with the servicemen of the American army was worked out. In particular, the US Army served as gunners for the artillery batteries of the National Guard.

According to the press service of the National Guard of the United States, "winter training of combined combat groups is very important to increase the level of interaction in difficult climatic conditions."

From the report:

This allows us to conclude on the degree of understanding between departments, to increase the level of interaction. This is a great prospect for this kind of joint maneuvers in the future, for various options for the “Winter strike”.

During the exercises, firing from 155-mm howitzers M777A2 was carried out.

From the report:

Armaments did not disappoint. Shooting was carried out in harsh conditions: wet snow, icy rain, gusty wind.

In fact, the weather in Michigan is hardly truly winter and harsh. So, in the last few days in the administrative center of this state - the city of Lansing - the thermometer rose to +8 Celsius.

          They don’t need to be considered stupid and naive. From a word in general. Not worth it. And these are not stupid guys. And very smart. You can’t take them out of the box. And do not fight back by pulling out a rusty Mauser.

            But what if they are fired? They are all contract soldiers there.
            If you write a letter of resignation, then they will not be able to fight, because it will be a serious violation of the law. Civilians are not supposed to fight what

            Dumb and naive they do not need to be considered.

            However, history suggests otherwise.
            And Napoleon and Hitler just did not take into account the Russian winter in their plans.
            And judging by what was said in the article, they do not want to know history and learn from it.
            At +8 Celsius you will not prepare for the Russian winter.

    In the Arctic, exercises must be conducted ... in February.

    The exercises themselves were called "Winter strike."

        It was stated more than once, who will create a climate weapon, he will own the world!
        While this is a fantasy, but to look carefully, in all directions, we must keep up with this topic ourselves!
        And also, they are lining up to expect what will be like in a geyropa, and we’ll be like 41 years old, minus 43 times .... and they will carry them as custodians, to Paris itself or like Boschs, to Berlin itself! Only we will pass to the English Channel !!! this time.

    What a winter of idiots, the day after tomorrow we will have +2 Celsius and this is in the Urals. I'm crazy about such a winter. It’s a matter of youth -20-30 in the order of things, and now youngsters have no idea what boots and sweatshirts are and how cool it is to drive hockey in winter and ride and tumble on snowy (not wooden) slides. And you’ll come home all icy in the snow and to the battery, and your mother will cook something delicious for you, bliss.

          Entrances, which you can always go in and warm up - this is not fair. Whether it's my village childhood business. When you have to trudge to a house with a forest or a river without hope for the nearest entrance. Sometimes in snowdrifts.

    In fact, the weather in Michigan is hardly truly winter and harsh. So, in the last few days in the administrative center of this state - the city of Lansing - the thermometer rose to +8 Celsius.

    So they would directly say that the exercises were conducted in spring and autumn. In winter, they came up with the idea.

      They need to consult with the Germans .. you know what winter can be .. In general, they already have experience, in the Arctic, in my opinion, they trained .. it turned out that their equipment could not withstand low temperatures ..

    And at -40 degrees did the Yankees try to get into the narrow wooden eye of the summer latrine with the whole battalion? And to maintain its functionality, every two hours, punch an eye with crowbars?
    And then it is powdery, in the cold, melts on a special shower and flows down in large smudges, in a warm cockpit? Ozonizing the microclimate of a warm barracks.

        Go to Magadan. And train as much as you want. Very thrills guaranteed at all 500%.

        And they, in which case, do not and will not need to fight in the "Magadans" and other "Yakutia."


        They may well not really be at war, but who will guarantee that they will not be held captive in those sunny lands?

          I will give such a guarantee. Because prisoners in the war, if it suddenly happens, there will be no mattresses between us

            And where will these prisoners go? Will they be more rationally used to complete the "East"?

    US forces prepare for winter war
    Shooting was carried out in harsh conditions: wet snow, icy rain, gusty wind.

    It is necessary to offer the United States, to conduct military exercises in Yakutia ... in December-January.
    I am sure that after that their ambitions to conquer Russia will come down to 0. yes

    Not to 0, but to minus 40

    The movie "sniper"
    - Was in the jungle?
    - If you count the wilderness of North Carolina, then yes
    Somewhere like that.
    The quote is semantic, I don’t remember the text exactly - I watched the movie for a long time

    In fact, the weather in Michigan is hardly truly winter and harsh. So, in the last few days in the administrative center of this state - the city of Lansing - the thermometer rose to +8 Celsius.


    Have fun ...

    The gunners' suits are somehow not white, not the color of winter! Probably the commanders were forced to play a war with the Russians, but they are somehow not ready! laughing
    Yes, and five soldiers with an un trenched gun is like a lingo! The boys have not received the answer for a long time! For example, from Tornadoes or Mstuh ... or a sniper bullet from the forest ... The gun is also green like their ground forces! Oh, they’ll spot their position and gouge in poohh

    “In the United States, they decided to conduct exercises in climatic conditions, which were attributed to winter.”
    Honestly, I don’t understand why the editors of such an interesting site are trying to fool readers! From Wiki:
    “Grayling Camp is a military training center located near Grayling, Michigan. Grayling Camp is the major training center for the National Guard of Michigan and the largest training center for the US National Guard in the United States. ”
    Those. the US National Guards are training there, but not those in the barracks, but those who have served and are called up for training once a couple of years for a month, reservists, in a word. And the base works all year round, and reservists train all year round. And what's so funny or special?
    The editors, what is the matter with you?

    Casting caps went)))) Ah ha ha, the Americans are fools, ha ha +8, and here, etc. by the list. Americans are not stupid at all. This is a well-armed, stimulated and equipped soldier! And this soldier is seriously preparing. I believe that in this case it is necessary not to throw hats, threatening with laughter, but is preparing more seriously.
