      Everything is somewhat more complicated, at low temperatures, the fuel stops evaporating, the oil thickens, the batteries die before our eyes, the crew becomes stiff and covered with hoarfrost ...
      There is a video in the topic (Arctic costume pleased):

        In this program, he became disappointed. Words disagree with the picture.
        1. At first they say that transport does not go that way at all. However, they drive along a normal road. And later it is seen that ordinary cars drive there.
        2. Make a turn of the armored car on a regular road. Moreover, almost catching the lead and the operators. And the driver and passengers of the VAZ-2104 were in shock. Although then they said: (specially launched machine).
        3. I pull the car out of the drift "with a jerk". It is immediately evident that the bumpers with hooks never flew off and the cables did not break.

        The same goes for other topics in this show ...

          On the conscience of journalists.
          VAZ-2104 were in shock. Although then they said: (specially launched machine).

          Although they said it was good, there is an excuse. It was necessary to retake for good, otherwise the military would receive a hat.

          At Kamaz you are tormented to tear off - this is not Korean puzoterka.

      This is the NATO standard! Although seriously, such a technique for the Arctic latitudes is simply necessary.

    And for some reason I always thought that our equipment is being developed and works from -50 to +50.
    When I was young and green at the plant, they were "adapting" Pestunya, so it was for our workshop that we made a vestibule in front of the front door. laughing

      ... to work, then it works ... the question is what resource in this case ... it is not in vain that there are clearly defined versions of "products" for:
      - UHL - moderately cold climate zone
      - HL - cold climate zone
      ... something like this ... hi

      -50 in those regions the usual temperature in winter. Special greases and additional heating systems are needed. But most of all the problems of course with diesel generators.

    Well, one can immediately see that the country takes seriously the development of the Arctic and upholds its interests in these latitudes, which cannot but rejoice.

    or maybe they insulate up to -80? In general, the technique itself probably works. But SAM - this is not a tank, there are a lot of all kinds of cobwebs. Maybe heating for wire bundles do?)

      Heating is not heating, and the insulation should be used so that it does not crumble in the cold, the antenna of the locator is very sensitive to icing and wind loads, and of course:

    Something seriously took seriously the Arctic. Have you found something very interesting in the ice? Not, of course, oil there, gas there, production platforms. But somehow it does not fit in with the Arctic bases, air defense / missile defense and so on.

      In the Arctic, you can put a lot of interesting things, that if something happens, it will reach the likely "partners" much faster. And all their missile defense system will not work.

    great, especially if the "tweaks", i.e. in a compartment with the S-300 or S-400 along the northern sea route

    "torus" is a Soviet development, and in the USSR the equipment was made for operation in the entire range of latitudes, from the south to the far north! What then is this option for the Arctic?

    this complex is wrapped in a “warmed” camouflage net and all things. With current top technologies, everything can be adapted to any cold.
