Title Modern Perspectives for Tactical Level Operations in the Arctic Region.
Publication Date Jun 2013
Media Count 124p
Personal Author V. Micov
Abstract This study analyzes the modern perspectives for tactical level operations in the Arctic region. This study examines the current activities and development of these ground tactical formations as part of the Russian Federation's Northern Fleet in the Arctic region. In addition, comparison and evaluation of the ground tactical formations, their adaptability to the operational environment, will illustrate a perspective of the military operations in the Arctic. This study emphasizes the protection of strategic interests in the Arctic in regards to international security and regional stability, as well as protection of new opened sea lines of communications and energy resources. It proves the necessity of maintaining a U.S. military presence in the Arctic based on the analysis of current Russian military activity. Based on budget limitations and current technological advancements, the study concludes that the probability of military conflict in the Arctic region over the next 15 years remains low, and military presence in the Arctic should be limited to bilateral military cooperation and permanent air-space-sea monitoring to maintain control over the Arctic region.
