Paratroopers from Tula and the Moscow region are practicing actions when they get into "open" water with an abnormally low temperature

21
For the first time, servicemen of units and formations of the Airborne Forces deployed in the Tula and Moscow regions are involved in activities to develop survival skills in open water in conditions of abnormally low temperatures. Landing is performed in the conditions of the Far North, and for military personnel this is a serious test not only for professionalism, but also for endurance.


The press service of the Ministry of Defense of Russia reports that such exercises are one of the most important elements of the Arctic training of personnel of individual units of the RF Armed Forces. It is noted that when a person enters the open water, the temperature of which is only a few degrees above zero Celsius, a rapid overcooling of the body occurs. That is why, before performing landing with military personnel, multiple training sessions were conducted, and an algorithm was worked out for actions while in ice water.

Paratroopers from Tula and the Moscow region are practicing actions when they get into "open" water with an abnormally low temperature


Press Service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation:
Such training is carried out at points of permanent dislocation of compounds under conditions close to extreme. In the arctic latitudes, a person can enter the open water during active ice rushing, overcoming faults or polynyas. The 2014-2015 experience gained during previous training search and rescue expeditions and exercises in the Arctic and polar regions of the Arctic are widely used to prepare paratroopers.


Earlier, Russian paratroopers practiced landing skills on Arctic ice.

        Come on, find fault with writers. They have physics in a simplified program.

        But in a frost of 40 degrees with kerosene, I washed the handles once. The drain was opened on the "eight" - and under the stream laughing I thought they would fall off.

      It all depends on the time - if they are not immediately pulled out of this water, then no one will catch up.

    So, the CSTO will take the North Pole, and the Tula and Muscovites South. Not bad, otherwise the UN will not decide to give us the shelf.

    To land on the ice is not "ice" at all, to put it mildly, I can imagine how unpleasant the landing is ...

    The thing is necessary. I just look at the guys, well, why are they blotting them in a blot? After all, they plan to fight in the Arctic - black boots, green unloading, is it really impossible to sew white. In Syria, they climb the sand in green numbers.

    This is really something. If you get into the water in the north you only have a few minutes to get out and get warm. It most likely needs landing equipment. The first who passed it were the pilots and sailors of the Northern Fleet during the Second World War. If I’m not mistaken, a person can withstand in such water no more than 5 minutes!

    Actions that are in the warm, that in the cold water you fly alone - have time to get rid of the system, before splashdown, and so that the dome is not covered. In cold water, only special equipment will help you get on the raft as quickly as possible. Maybe some "hot-water bottles" have appeared.

    Interesting topic! The fighter failed, got out, and what are his actions next? It’s lucky if there is something to change, a heated tent, or a transport with a warm booth ... And it’s better all at once, then the chance to survive is 100% ...
    In the conditions of the Arctic tundra, in the ice of the ocean I can not even imagine how a fighter will survive without the above options. to make a big fire in the conditions of the Arctic tundra or ice is problematic, and even impossible. Remember, there is no forest there!
    In my experience in hunting in the conditions of Chukotka, when I fell into the water at a temperature below -50 gr, got out, fell in the snow, knocked down wet snow, once again in the snow and again shook off, for a limited time due to low temperature, everything is very it quickly freezes ... Quickly with a knife to clean the skis from the ice and go to the shelter ... clothes become baskets while you move, you can’t stop, you start to freeze ... And no matter how hard it is, do not spare yourself and go through force. No other way. Significantly helped out by the fact that on the legs Chukchi fur sausages, while moving, even wet ones do not freeze, but you can’t stand ...

      In the tundra, a bonfire is not a problem, albeit a small one, but on ice it is definitely not an option.

        We did this — zinc from the cartridges is covered with snow and you splash kerosene. Hisses, gurgles and burns. I hope that at least they should have diesel fuel, not fools, in the end, just throw people away like that.

        A bonfire, although small, in winter ... when all the bushes are hidden under the snow, there are no trees as such ... that is, there is a problem with firewood. And this is all in the cold and in the conditions of the Arctic tundra of constant wind, for a small fire you still need to find firewood ...

          That's right, those same "birches" are enough for a small - just a small fire. Digging them out, you can not freeze, but for one thing and build protection from the wind, which, by the way, is not so permanent! :) He also lived there for 16 years and swam in the East Siberian Sea.

    No matter what water the paratroopers fall into, without a good wetsuit with thermal insulation, you won’t last long.
