Rubric: Russia

Ice range for training future commanders of arctic units has been constructed in the Amur region.

There are positions for IFV’s and tanks, mortar crews and firing with small arms, which are made of ice and snow. So-called ice igloos are constructed in order to allow the servicemen to have a rest and wait out snow storms, Russian Defence Ministry reports.

Moreover, there is an ice climbing wall at the range, which is used for mountaineering in low temperature conditions.
