      Yesterday there was a good report in the news, I liked how the instructor showed in the ravine that it was impossible to drown in a suit. Skis made of polymers with sewn pelt, snowshoes from some kind of special materials and a pistol-rocket gun surprised to scare the bears

      ..Yes they tried laughing Fact! ..... On the face! .........
      ...... At the northernmost military base in Norway in the town of Porsanger in the Finnmark region, the British marines refused to carry out combat training missions due to low air temperature. Her Majesty's subjects said that they were not able to train in conditions where the temperature drops to minus twenty degrees.
      The commander of the Norwegian base, Lieutenant Colonel Trond Thomassen, justifying the British soldiers, explained that they treat health and safety in a special way. They sit in the barracks and flatly refuse to undergo any training whenever the thermometer is drops below eight degrees. laughing
      Apparently, the situation is aggravated by the fact that in such a frost, soldiers cannot use diapers that are given to them during long exercises due to the impossibility of putting toilet stalls in forests, in the mountains, and on other rough terrain. Once the urine cools down, the genitals begin to freeze, in the military, the genitals literally froze to the inside of the disposable diaper. The British soldiers were not able to pour into a snowdrift, as ethnic Norwegians still do, the young generation lost these skills. wassat

    Everything is clear about the Russian Airborne Forces, but where are the other members of the CRRF or is it such a figure of speech?
