Construction of Arctic air defense base in Tiksi enters home stretch

The Russian Defense Ministry is creating an anti-aircraft "umbrella" over the Northern Sea Route. The construction of an Arctic base for the 3rd Air Defense Division is entering the home stretch.


The creation of the necessary infrastructure for the comfortable accommodation of the division's personnel is entering the final, third stage. Finally, work on the creation of an Arctic base for the 3rd Air Defense Division of the 45th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Northern fleet in Tiksi is scheduled to be completed by 2023.

Currently, part of the work has already been completed. In particular, a residential sector has been built, a military town can accommodate 300 servicemen, and positions have been equipped to accommodate air defense systems that have already entered combat duty.

Currently, units of the 414th Guards Brest Red Banner Anti-Aircraft Missile Regiment of the 3rd Air Defense Division of the 45th Army of the Air Force and the Air Defense of the Northern Fleet are deployed at the base in Tiksi, which are armed with S-300PS anti-aircraft systems. As they write "News", referring to sources in the military department, the regiment will soon be rearmed with the S-400, and the base will also receive the S-350 Vityaz complexes.

The main task is to provide air cover for the Northern Sea Route and the Russian Arctic. The regiment took up combat duty in April last year.

As stated in the Ministry of Defense, Russia in the Arctic is restoring the bases lost after the collapse of the USSR. This mainly concerns the air defense system covering our northern borders. The military pays great attention to the protection of the Arctic, especially against the background of US statements about the need to transfer the Northern Sea Route to international use.

      my childhood friend lived on Tiksi - my father was a military man. I was very happy that I crossed the Arctic Circle, moving to Krasnoyarsk.

      Tiksi is the sea gate of Yakutia. Tiksi is an outpost of the Northern Sea Route. Tiksi is a once prosperous urban-type settlement on the coast of the Laptev Sea. During the Soviet era, Tiksi was a prosperous village with excellent supplies.
      But in addition to Tiksi, there was also Tiksi-3, where long-range aviation was based, which was withdrawn in 2012, and other military units were disbanded or reduced even earlier.


      Well, Tiksi itself is even more desolate.

      And it's nice to hear that the Russian authorities realized that Tiksi is an outpost of the Northern Sea Route, but how much has been lost, destroyed, and how many broken lives of people who built, lived, gave birth to children on the Arctic coast.

        But besides Tiksi, there was also Tiksi-3

        Tiksi-3 was just a purely military village, not counting the airport, where civilian aircraft landed and took off.
        And Tiksi-raz is a civil settlement with an Arctic port.
        Well, our unit, on the Stolovaya hill, a few kilometers from the village, provided communication with the mainland and other settlements of the Arctic at that time. And they called home automatically.
        In Soviet times, everything lived, worked, there was supplies. But the 90s ruined everything.

      This "frontier" went out of order in the 90s due to ... a bursting steam heating pipe - all pipes thawed and the town was abandoned.

      Do not flatter yourself with loud statements - this base does not mean anything militarily - a demonstration of the flag.
      In wartime, it is put out of action by sabotage at the boiler house or fuel storage park for the boiler house (fuel oil) - then everything will freeze due to the weather. All that remains is to urgently evacuate the freezing personnel.

          It depends on what to compare - for example, with the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (5500 military personnel and civilians). The main source for Anchorage is a power plant with an installed capacity of 183-MW - sabotage on a natural gas pipeline and 3-4 days of recovery.
          This time the base will hold out on emergency diesels.

          And in Tiksi, diesel fuel stocks are accumulated in storage facilities during summer navigation.
          In case of sabotage of the fuel storage, it remains to rely on the wind-diesel complex (VDK) with a capacity of 3 kW, but it does not cover even a tenth of the need for heating.
          The base will be doomed to freeze - just like it happened in the 90s.

          In December 1997, a failure occurred in the water supply system from Tiksi-3. Presumably, the person on duty at the checkpoint at night did not follow the formation of ice in the tank, which stood between the pipe from Tiksi-3 and the communications of the unit. As a result, ice formed, the pipe towards Tiksi-3 began to freeze, it had to be urgently drilled to avoid complete freezing. They began to take water for the military unit from the snow; ice clots began to penetrate into the system, and here and there the radiators and pipes began to freeze. The "struggle for habitability" with blowtorches lasted for several weeks. As a result, it was not possible to save the part: the "defrosting" was complete and fatal, and within several weeks the part was moved to Tiksi-3 (with the exception of the "sites")

                This is photographed by everyone who gets to Tiksi. And where is the photo of the restored airfield Tiksi 3, with the ability to take TU 160, the more he uses some cunning nitrogen-containing fuel. Everything is now done using energy-saving technologies. That in vain they drove Lomanosov to the Arctic. Photo of destroyed buildings in Detroit, they don't say Detroit is dead.

                  Tiksi himself
                  Lives off the fuel storage that is on the shore - a very vulnerable place in the military plan.
                  Unlike Tiksi, Anchorage is supplied with UGT via pipelines from a local resource base - like we have Norilsk.

                  And Tiksi is an outpost only on paper and depends on the fuel storage.
                  Any military man will tell you how vulnerable this heat supply scheme in the Arctic region is.

                  Of course, each military point had its own independent fuel storage.
                  But this does not improve the situation much, and transport fuel by air ...

                  Tiksi airport, it is better not to compare at all with the Elmendorf-Richardson base - it is a pitiful sight.

                  Don't seriously compare Tikski airport


                  with the combined military base Elmendorf - Richardson in Anchorage


                  Too different level of infrastructure - Tiksi is a jump airfield, an advanced operational base (read temporary placement).
                  And Elmendorf is a permanent base with the ability to host an air wing, I beg your pardon - THREE air wings. United States Air Force Wing - three squadrons of 18 to 24 aircraft

            It is not very correct to compare the climatic conditions in the Tiksi (Arctic with the Arctic climate, the average temperature in January is 37,3 degrees C) and in Anchorage (Subarctic climate), which is 10 degrees to the south and washed by the Alaskan warm current, the average daily temperature in January is 8,7 gr. C.

        The order to intercede on combat duty sounded: "To intercede on the protection of the air lines of our Motherland." The post stood in the barracks, in the corridor for buildings, by the bedside table. The regiment was then in Norilsk. I don't know if the author was mistaken or not, but before the disbandment in the 90s, the 414th was not a guard. Otherwise, I would have had a Guard on my tunic ... hi

    I am glad that my native regiment has been revived, that it is rearming on the S-400. At one time, he was one of the first in the North to receive a three hundred. One thing is not clear - before the disbandment, he was not a guard - for the ordeal of the 90s were they given? If there is anyone who served in 414, please respond ... hi
