    As a part of the Russian Federation has a new island
    Geographical discoveries made using the Mi-26

    Arctic rush - Page 3 111111111_588

    Crews Russian military helicopters Mi-26  opened a new island in the Arctic Ocean.

    The island is about 500 square meters , the height above sea level - less than a meter. The presence here of the territory of Russia significantly shifts the limits of its exclusive economic zone deeper into the Arctic. As a result, the territorial waters of the Russian Federation increased by 452 square kilometers. The new island was an unusual name "Yaya". This is due to the fact that each of the members of the crews of two Mi-26 helicopters began to shout: "This is me, I found it!".

    Previously unknown island was discovered by air on Vasilevsky shoal crews of two Mi-26 helicopters, transport different technique from Yakut port Tixi on the New Siberian Islands. Geographical discovery expanded the territorial waters of the Russian Federation on the 452 sq. km.

    Geographical discovery was made back in 2013, but not made public until scientific testing. Feature of many of the Arctic islands is that they are composed not of rocks and ice, over which a layer of soil. Over time, the ice melts, and the "island" disappear.

    That is why the official announcement of the fact of geographical discoveries made by the Mi-26, was held a year later, after experts Hydrographic Service conducted studies and confirmed that a small sandy patch of land is an island.

    Previously, the island was not marked on maps. In addition to the island of Yaya, the expedition managed to find other new objects: the island of Novaya Zemlya in the area, and the Straits capes. Since the last survey conducted in this part of the Arctic exactly one hundred years ago, from 1910 to 1914, the terrain has changed. Because global warming is melting glaciers centuries, discovering new islands and headlands.

    The Mi-26 is the biggest and lifting production helicopter in the world. They are capable of carrying up to 20 tons of cargo on the external load or transport cabin. Mi-26 helicopters are also used to transport Marines wounded or fuel, as well as fighting fires. Helicopter at the factory "Rostvertol" holding "Russian Helicopters" . The commercial version has the designation of helicopter Mi-26T. Currently undergoing flight tests modernized Mi-26T2 with a reduced number of crew members, "glass" cockpit, advanced avionics and options for night use.

    Holding "Helicopters of Russia" is the only developer and manufacturer of helicopters in Russia and one of the few companies in the world, has the capability to design, manufacture, testing and maintenance of modern civil and military helicopters.

    The more islands Russia discovers in the Arctic, the more oil reserves they can discover and claim for their own. Surely the charlatan PM Harper of Canada will complain saying it's an infringement of Canada's sovereignty lmao! lol1 lol1 lol1

    Russia should start screaming and shouting any time a NATO plane or ship crosses its EEZ. NATO screams and shouts when Russian planes and ships sail
    through NATO member EEZs even though it is international waters.

    Every scrap of land that can extend Russia's EEZ implies more control over the oil and gas deposits that mostly occur on the Siberian shelf and not on the
    North American side of the Arctic.

    Hopefully moving a large group of people to the arctic regions will promote the development of vehicles and equipment to make living and working there easier... which in turn should make extracting resources easier too.

    Very good point... it would be useful to test technologies for space and indeed submarines in such isolated places.

    Self sufficiency, reusable materials and equipment, and the ability to grow or make their own components for repairs would also be useful.

    Standard units had white coveralls when it snowed... no doubt for arctic units when it doesn't snow they will have light pullovers to deal with the situation.

    They are only just formed but they are based in the arctic and I am sure they will have to do their jobs 24/7 and all year round.

    Summer months should be easier, but they will likely train to operate in all conditions..

    What they're really trying to say is "Russia is not even allowed to have a organized military, even on it's own territory."

    The key part is the reference to Russian "claims" on the Arctic. Thanks to geology, Russia has basically all of the fossil fuel
    deposits in the Artic basin outside of the Beaufort and Alaskan shelf. Even the USGS map of the potential deposits puts
    most of them in Russia's EEZ. So Russia does not need to make any "claims". It is trying to make sure that NATO does
    not grab these resources by force in the near future.

    How would NATO grab them. Well, it could grab Russian islands in the Arctic based on various pretexts. It could also
    just ignore the concept of the EEZ because being a pack of imperial crusaders for NATO, might makes right especially since
    the angels are on their side.
