NATO soldiers abandoned military equipment on the border with Russia due to frost


The servicemen of the NATO countries were not ready to resist the Russian army in the conditions of the Russian winter. This writes the French edition of Le Point. At the end of December last year, the military from France, Great Britain and Denmark honed combat interaction a hundred kilometers from Lake Peipus, along which the Estonian border with Russia runs.


According to the French press, fighting Russia in the winter turned out to be a “so-so” undertaking for the foreign military. For example, the French shooters admitted that they were very cold. Especially after being in Mali, from where they had to leave.

The British army was also not in the best condition, in which only one grouping of the Royal Navy has experience in extreme conditions. An ordinary overnight stay in the winter forest became a difficult test for the foreign military.

According to Le Point, only the French military was able to cope with the difficulties, which also emphasized that they were treated better in Estonia than in Mali.

But the real revelation for NATO was the behavior of their combat equipment in the conditions of Russian frost. Two British tanks broke down immediately after starting the engine. They had to be abandoned on the sidelines and maneuvered without them.

Note that the experience of the war against Russia in the winter with the Danes, French and British could share the Germans. Those who attacked Moscow in 1941 still survived there.

    And our equipment in the NWO did not break down without any frost?

      Vox_Populi (Vox Populi), you yourself know the answer, so the question arises - why are you asking?
      Naturally, Russian military equipment (and certainly Soviet) is the only one on the planet adapted to frost. Neither the West nor Asia is able to produce something like this even down to minus 10C, I’m already silent about minus 50, there are things unattainable for the rest of mankind, the real Arctic is subject exclusively to the People of Russia.

    They have great experience!
    Some will tell you how to bring down the taiga, dismantle the rubble, participate in the restoration of a foreign country. Others will tell you how to properly drape from the battlefield. Still others will tell you how not to die of hunger in your country, which has destroyed not only the economy, but also everything that is possible and impossible.

    I looked at the weather report for the end of December. Plus temperatures +2, +4. Only on the 26th it was -4. Where are the frosts?

    due to frost

    Two British tanks broke down immediately after starting the engine. They had to be abandoned on the side of the road and managed on maneuvers without them.

    due to insanity and dementia

    "Armata" will not be. You can disperse.

    Yeah? Are there any "living" Germans? Maybe only "half-dead" ... as a certain girl said, giving way to an old woman on the bus? And senile insanity? Age sclerosis? Constipation, enuresis... dementia, impotence... heart attacks, cataracts? "Today, an hour ago, I walked a little behind a young girl ... now I'm trying to remember: why?"... request

    Exercises in conditions close to combat are carried out in order to identify shortcomings and eliminate them. And you don't need to go crazy. That there are few countries in NATO that are familiar with such conditions firsthand and could tell what will happen in these conditions even without exercises. There is nothing else here, working out the transfer of military formations not prepared for the local theater of operations, and ways to quickly eliminate the consequences of this lack of preparedness.

      Quite right, this is indeed the purpose of the teachings. For this, exercises are carried out to determine the degree of preparedness of the fighters. It seems to me, unlike us, they will quickly identify and remove violations and shortcomings!
