-50°C no problem: Arctic brigade test-drives 2-unit all-terrain vehicles (VIDEO)


The Arctic brigade of the Russian Northern Fleet has field-tested new specialized tracked vehicles that can carry troops across treacherous terrain like snow and swamp and cross water.

The ATV called Ruslan has two segments connected by a special powered joint. The joint can be used to make sharp turns and raise one of the sections, allowing it to climb a barrier of up to 1.8 meters high or enhance the tracks’ grip by redistributing the pressure.
