"Equipment works even at extreme temperatures": the Spanish contingent returned from "combat watch" in Latvia

116

The Spanish army faced harsh conditions of service in the Baltics, but passed the tests with dignity.


Tanks Leopard and Pizarro tracked armored vehicles [Spanish infantry fighting vehicles on ASCOD chassis] deployed in the NATO mission in Latvia recently participated in challenging exercises in extremely cold conditions, in which the thermometer showed almost -20 degrees Celsius

- noted in the publication Infodefensa.

From the Spanish side, a tactical subgroup of mechanized infantry and an engineering unit took part in the "Winter Shield" exercise, which took place from November 22 to December 3 at the Adazi training ground.

The Spanish contingent involved in the maneuvers had the greatest combat capabilities thanks to Pizarro infantry fighting vehicles, Leopard tanks, 120-mm heavy mortars, Spike anti-tank systems and a guidance group aviation (JTAC).

Possession of equipment by our soldiers, weapons and equipment allowed the materiel to work effectively even in these extreme temperature conditions

- said the Defense Headquarters of the Spanish Armed Forces.

After completing its mission in the union state, the Spanish contingent returned from the "combat watch" to their homeland, to their places of permanent deployment.

NATO forces are stationed in the Baltics on a virtually permanent basis; their replacement here is carried out on a rotational basis. This season, the mission to "contain Russia" was assigned to the units of the Spanish army.

            Germans remember the Moscow region 1941

            I remembered the old joke:
            41st, somewhere near Moscow, a damaged German tank is on fire, a tanker jumps boldly out of it and falls into a snowdrift, lay there for a couple of minutes, and with the words "yes, his nafik" climbed back into the burning tank.

          I had a chance somehow to get out of the village of Podcherye, the Republic of Komi, at minus 51 degrees. Near the Urals with a kung, the bridges were frozen so that they skidded behind the tractor, like a sled. I had to make fires under the bridges, and only then go to the mainland with prayer, if only the engine did not fail, because there is no big movement in the taiga on winter roads and there is no one to hope for except myself. They took the ensign with his family (one child is disabled), so they were identified in the cabin, and they themselves were shaking in an unheated cabinet, since the cotton "mattresses" (not to be confused with the Americans) were laid in three layers. At Chinyavoryk we said goodbye and went on by train.

            It's frosty here now, really, not every year ... except that cold and wind will roll from Kazakhstan. And so, below 47, I don't even remember ... it was long ago.
            The most memorable thing is the temperature contrasts, from plus 22 to minus 42, when flying around the country. There were such things ... I managed to visit a lot of places, in the old days.
            By the way, in Stalingrad, all our orchards have one starting date ... in 1963, plus or minus, there was an extreme winter and everything, everything, was completely frozen.
            There was no more such extreme.

            When winter is habitually frosty, everyone prepares accordingly, preparing for the usual temperatures ... year after year of winter without a hard frost, people do not bother ... they use all-season oils and fuels.
            But this is all-season, it does not pull very low temperatures.
            Synthetics are a good option, but not for old engines ... they eat it, just have time to top up. Although, then, when it was, there were no imported synthetics at all ... it was a long time ago.

        This is understandable ... I remembered when we, southerners, one might say, after being called up for a valid one, were taken from the assembly point, on May 9, we had about thirty in the afternoon ... it was hot, in general.
        They brought us to Leningrad, and there is SNOW, damp and cold dogs ... I have never experienced such a "high" more ...
        Opinions were still amazed when, at the beginning of summer, on the slabs near the Peter and Paul Fortress, the residents of Leningrad were BURNING, and ice floes were still floating along the Neva !!!
        And for the soldiers, one way of warming the foreman was ... to remove the shovel and snow.
        Everything is as always, everything is as everywhere ...
        By the way, they were cured of a cold very quickly and efficiently .... there were no hot showers in the barracks, only a bath on a given day ... and walking dirty, smelly, was not welcomed by anyone.

Of course, it is cold to fight, but on the other hand, there will be such an adrenaline rush that the cold will not be felt very much.

              Before "there will be an adrenaline rush", it is necessary to make the transition to the position, equip it, prepare the necessary places for personnel, wait for hostilities. So the fighters will have time to freeze. Do our fighters know how to endure, endure the cold not for 1-2 days, but for weeks and months? I don't know ... But what cold is - I know.

        For 10 minutes I was poking around on the Internet, looking for the weather in Latvia, in November.
        Here is what I found:
        Die Höchsttemperaturen betragen im Durchschnitt 43 ° F. Im Durchschnitt beträgt die niedrigste Temperatur 40 ° F. Demzufolge beträgt die generelle Durchschnittstemperatur in diesem Monat November in Riga 41 ° F.
        Translating, the lowest temperature is 40 Fahrenheit. This is + 4,4 Celsius. Obviously, the average, the lowest for the month.

          I know. Here, many do not understand that although Latvia is a small state in terms of territory, the temperature difference, for example, in Latgale and Kurzeme, may differ by an order of magnitude. And the difference between frost and frost is also big. I served in Latvia, in Liepaja. Frost in winter is small, but high humidity. Even the guys from Altai were freezing, we had a lot of them. They said that it was warmer at -30 °, because the climate was dry.

            Of course, I am not an expert on seas and lakes, but I know that the Baltic Sea, located within the continental shelf, washes the shores of Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, its average depth is 51 meters.
            The depth of Lake Baikal is about 1500 meters. Different climates around these water masses, different water density, etc.
            In my opinion, comparing the glorious, great Baikal and the Baltic Sea is equivalent to comparing who is stronger, an elephant or a whale.
