NATO stated its reluctance to fight in extreme weather conditions


NATO troops do not want to fight in extremely low temperatures. This statement was made by the commander of the group of British allies, Lieutenant Colonel James Fern. The NATO military leader’s revelation was made during exercises in Estonia.


The annual Talvelaager military exercise for NATO troops this time took place at a temperature of minus 16 degrees. The military of Estonia, Great Britain and France demonstrated their combat readiness. And many of them were, to put it mildly, unhappy with the fact that it was cold outside. But during maneuvers there are no live bullets whistling, no shells exploding, and there is no task of carrying out orders at any cost.

However, the NATO military turned out to be behind the eyes and ears of the training.

Extreme weather conditions have become a major challenge for us... Vehicles have difficulty starting and batteries do not last long. In addition, the weather greatly affects people psychologically. If we had a choice whether to fight in such conditions or not, we most likely would not do it

– admitted the commander of the group of British allies, Lieutenant Colonel James Fern, following the results of the maneuvers.

Let us note that various countries that are members of the North Atlantic Alliance have recently regularly talked about the need to prepare for a possible military conflict with Russia. But how NATO is going to fight against the Russian Armed Forces when the air temperature drops to extreme values, the local generals do not specify.

    There is only one thing left - attracting climate-prepared blacks to operations.

      - yes, high air humidity is also important here - in Tallinn in winter at -7 it cuts to the bones at the post.

    And I served in the USSR Armed Forces for two winters. It happened that you would look into your boot and there would be frost. Felt boots were only issued at the guard post. And nothing, together with his comrades he ensured the security of our Soviet Motherland. NATO members to answer! Gay-gay, damned!

      An amazing people, the Slavs, their boots are covered in frost, and their claims are not to the deputies in the rear, but to the NATO members.

        Isn't it logical? If there were no NATO, there would be no point in keeping watch around the clock in the winter. And there would be no point in building a guard post. Therefore the logical answer. Well, Liberoids have never been logical. And our people always look to the root.

    It is necessary to stipulate in the NATO charter that NATO exercises and maneuvers in cold and hot seasons are transferred to more comfortable times of the year.

    Yes, neither Napoleon nor the Wehrmacht, at one time, also turned out to be unprepared for the same weather conditions

    How they are going to seize and dismember Russia is not clear, because in Russia there are such severe frosts and such fat partisans that it’s impossible to get a chance to fight.
