Pacific Fleet Marines have mastered dog sledding skills

Pacific Marine Corps exercises held in Kamchatka fleetin the framework of which for the first time dog teams were used to move the marines. This was reported by the press service of the Pacific Fleet.


Pacific Fleet Marine Corps units at the Radigino training ground in the Kamchatka Territory conducted exercises in which for the first time they used snowmobiles and dog teams to help overcome snow cover lying in the region for about six months, and also to move in the taiga. The servicemen learned to drive teams, move behind snowmobiles and sledges "in a couple" of six people in an area where it is difficult to use other military equipment.

(...) individual tasks of the combat training course were solved using snowmobiles and dog teams. Such methods of transportation in conditions of significant snow cover, characteristic of the region from the end of autumn until April, allow mobile groups of marines to successfully overcome rugged terrain and act in the taiga

- said in a statement.

Marine units worked out the tactics of raiding, carried out the landing of tactical groups from snowmobiles and sledges, after which they fought with a conditional enemy, during which "they blocked and neutralized a group of conditional terrorists."

      It would be better if harnessed the bears.
      Photography would then have hit all the media.

    Are dogs taken from the locals or at the warehouse?

      For rent from local reindeer herders.
      They know a lot about animals.

        What is the Minister of Defense, such is the main mode of transport ....
        I always have a question - and the enemy, against whom the raid is arranged, will also land with dogs? In general, in the 21st century, it is better to use aviation for such exercises - it is both faster and more reliable. But apparently someone doesn’t have enough exotic in the army - there aren’t enough girls who serve them, so they’ll still go hunting in new ways.

          And what is wrong this time ?! Both dog and deer (in particular, at our KSF) transport is sometimes sometimes indispensable in those conditions.

            Of course indispensable - especially to the country with the most powerful total nuclear potential.

            It is simply ridiculous to listen to these tales for those who understand something in the armed forces. Tell us how American or Japanese formations will land in Kamchatka in winter, and most importantly tell us for what purpose.

          In winter, in a dense forest with a snow cover of 1-1,5 meters, or even more, except for skiing and dog sledding, you will not be able to use any other types of ground transportation.

            But the enemy does not know about, and decides that in Kamchatka, without taking into account these features, you can send your troops. But this is not even the point, but the fact that any landing in that region will be opened before it even begins. This means that the sea landing will be destroyed as soon as it enters our territorial waters, but the airborne landing is most likely on the fly, because it is impossible to conceal the simultaneous flight of a dozen transporters. So what for then to fence this whim with reindeer herders and dogs? Can you justify the military meaning of these actions?

          Perhaps it will be so. But reindeer breeders alone can’t get by, so the warriors do this themselves.

    Where the infantry will not pass, the mighty tank will not rush there, the marines will crawl into the husky and nothing will happen to him.

    Well, yes, they don’t need gasoline ...

    Our Marines train to move on anything, including flying brooms. Mattress marines are helpless without special marine all-terrain vehicles. That's the whole difference)))

    A fun company of marines on reindeer made a march.
    Tales revised or something.
    And the commander-in-chief on a moose, is not present on a fighting goat. XXL century in the yard.

    We are waiting for the development of onions, spears and bacon. Nenuacho, ammunition and fuel run out, and then the marines with bows and spears on the dogs. Mattresses are resting. :)

    In Denmark, the United Arctic Command has a special unit, Sirius Dog Sled Patrol, to patrol the northern and northeastern part of Greenland. Exists since 1941. The Danes believe that for those climatic conditions and distances - the most reliable form of transport.

      Americans in Alaska used sled dogs until 1966.

      Do you think that in Denmark the military does not know how to cut the budget for all sorts of nonsense? Have you heard anything about the desire of the USSR to seize Greenland? Over the years of service, I have not even heard a hint that in our plans this island is listed as of operational interest. Well, maybe for emergency landings of aircraft, and even that is a big question.
      It's time to get rid of fantasies and stupidly copying foreign military experience, so that we are not considered fools.

        So that you are not considered fools, first of all, before you write, you must learn to read.
        And then you would know how it appeared in 1941 (just a very successful year in Denmark for cutting the budget) and what tasks it faces today. And then instead of the nonsense that you gave out to the mountain, perhaps a normal comment would have turned out.

          1941 is nothing at all, because now we have a different level of weapons and threats. And Greenland is not visible in these threats, even if you study it very carefully

          I leave you the primacy - make a sane comment about sled dogs and Greenland, only for the current situation, and not referring to those times when people did not know weapons of mass destruction.
