First Try to Build Russian Army Camp at Extreme -40 C

Posted on January 17, 2017 by tim

This is a first try army commanders decided to move an army regiment from one region to another at extreme -40 C and place them not in regular warm barracks but in temporary camping dwellings. Here is how they managed to do this:

Yaroslav went there and saw it all with his own eyes. The doors have double layer of cold protection, one is made from similar material as emergency blankets are, to repel cold and save warm air inside.

Soldiers seem to be not very confused by this situation.

And this is a general, he came to see what’s going on.

And meet the officers.

And here are the camp tents. They are same as normal tents but at -40 C – covered with snow and ice.

Inside it looks pretty comfy.

Rules say that you are not allowed to touch metal parts of the tent (probably the coldest ones), forbidden to step on cables, and ask for assistance if someone is broken, don’t try to fix it themselves.

Here are some soldiers.


And a fence-protected armory.

Freshly made rifles.

Around the campsite is Russian nice winter nature.

Also one tent is a hospital tent. Here is she measuring his body temperature.

Also this.

Then, for higher mobility soldiers can use skis.

Or vehicles.

At -40 C cars are covered with extra layer of tarp to preserve engines from over cold and make it easier to start them.


Here, this BTR engine started.

Also toilets with showers, equipped with hot water.

And to get real idea how cold it is around – see the operator – he is dressed to survive.

And also kitchen in a tent.

So now you have an idea how Russian army field camp survives at -40 C.

Thanks to Yaroslav for his photos, his website is below:

    And a pack of steerable weaponry that can detect a heat signature is going to murder everything in this encampment.

    Can you say: “Fighting the last war”.

    I knew you could.
