Pentagon report: Russia is deploying new, specially modified air-defense systems to the Arctic

Russia is moving air defense systems modified for the harsh Arctic environment to key areas near its borders with Norway and the US, the US Army's Foreign Military Studies Office (FMSO) notes in its August 2015 report. 

According to the FMSO, the Kremlin is looking to place short-to-medium range antiaircraft SA-22 Pantsir-S1 battalions at Murmansk by the Norwegian border and at unspecified locations in the east of Russia facing both the US and Japan. 

The twin-barreled Pantsir is a staple of Russian air defense, the FMSO notes. It has a range of upwards of 19 miles and can function in temperatures as low as -58 degrees Farenheit, making it the perfect weapon for Russia to deploy to its planned string of military bases throughout the Arctic. 

Altough it's primarily an air defense system, RIA Novosti notes that the Pantsir can also "protect the defended asset from ground-based and water surface-based threats." 

Pantsir battalions have been deployed to the Arctic before. But the weapon systems encountered difficulties, as the extreme operating conditions wrecked havoc on the chassis typically used to carry the missile system. The modified Pantsir will likely be mounted on the newly developed chassis for Russia's hulking third-generation Armata tank.

Russia's militarization of the Arctic comes as the region's ice melts and the area takes on greater geopolitical significance. 

The US estimates that about 15% of the world's remaining oil, up to 30% of its natural gas deposits, and about 20% of its liquefied natural gas are stored in the Arctic seabed. Receding Arctic ice would also open up new shipping routes through formerly ice-covered areas. 

To capitalize on its advantageous Arctic position, Russia has began a substantial upgrade of its military assets in the region. 

In total, Moscow's plans involve the opening of ten Arctic search-and-rescue stations, 16 deep-water ports, 13 airfields, and 10 air-defense radar stations across its Arctic periphery. Once completed, this construction will allow Russia to project hard power into a new strategic and commercial frontier.

It will have other military implications as well, since the new bases will "permit the use of larger and more modern [bomber aircraft]" in the region, Mark Galeotti, a Russia expert at New York University, writes for The Moscow Times." By 2025, the Arctic waters are to be patrolled by a squadron of next-generation stealthy PAK DA bombers."

For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.

Had heard they were claiming the Arctic on the news. I guess since the ice caps have melted away a lot they see potential in that land. Plus setting on top of the world...
