Cold conditions, training military forces of mobility by 40% to 60%
with winter training maneuver forces the reporter Lin Jingqiu reporter
1 月 6 early in the morning, the reporter out from the warm interior, filled the air blowing snow immediately, like a cold wind blowing cheeks knife, like pain, gas from the mouth Hachu white frost soon be cold formed.
braved the swirling snow, braved the biting cold, the reporter get off-road vehicles, following the exercise forces moved into the depths of the Snowy Forest. The road was frozen as hard as iron, covered with a thin layer of snow above the car in top running, from time to time there is a “drift” feeling, the reporter can not help but reach out to hang on the windows above the safety ring, eyes gazed at the front. “Ice Road for motor vehicles is very dangerous, compared with summer, winter, cold conditions, the ability to maneuver force as a whole fell 40% to 60%.” Shi Feng, head of the accompanying items, told reporters.
team forward from the road into the forest trails, rugged mountain covered with thick snow, the team moving more slowly. Reporters found that the glass window next to the knot full of Ice, car thermometer shows the outside temperature reached minus 25 degrees Celsius. Item He adds: “minus 25 degrees Celsius is a critical point, when the ambient temperature is below this value, the people and equipment are a great test.”
cold, cold “wake up” the correspondent mind a set of data: During World War I, French frostbite 15 million people, more than 10,000 German frostbite. Winter of 1942 when World War II, German 16 Army forces in the pay of nearly 20,000 Sale Fort frostbite, frostbite U.S. 5 million people. Seen combat in the alpine region, the lack of combat experience under cold conditions, there is another strong and well equipped soldiers are of no use.
way, the reporter saw soldiers on foot unit on the frozen snow is the vast structural engineer, structural engineer camouflage, field picnic training. Reporters get off work area to frozen bodies, soldiers saw his face all red, holding a shovel to dig the frozen ground is in full swing of the land. So hard to land, the soldiers were able to dug move? Reporters tried to pick up the shovel to dig a bit, so the soil is not as hard to imagine. Command team structure work is the battalion commander, told reporters before anesthesia and then, under extreme cold conditions, permafrost up to 8 meters deep, with fire and so they had thought of many ways to solve the problem of permafrost is difficult to dig, but really to use so that when you do not. The winter training in which they found that the deeper snow where thicker permafrost layer as thin as possible to dig. With this experience, they easily solve the difficult cold conditions, structural engineering problems.
“troops are in cold areas, it is necessary to explore the cold conditions of combat experience, fighting in winter may encounter various problems.” Key head, said they winter training this year, a significant change is the original “Winter adaptive training” to “winter training.” From the “winter adaptive training” to “winter training”, the difference a few words, but never fundamentally changed the concept of training: the battle in the Cold war, soldiers training in the cold zone.
the northern winter, particularly short day, 4 pm, the day has begun to darken. Looking at the vast Snowy Forest, Ma battalion commander, told reporters tonight that they will be camping at this. (January 8, Mudanjiang newspaper Xinhua)
