TOPIC: The Cold Cold North

The Cold Cold North 13 Mar 2017 15:40 #1

Just throwing another idea out there...

Most of you have figured out I've got a thing for the Cold War...I find it very interesting. The technological advances, the poker games, and to a lesser extent the espionage.

Who: NATO, Soviet/Warsaw, and neutral countries
What: Land, sea, and air forces
Where: Stationed in, or routinely operated north of the 60th Parallel
When: Cold War era (End of WWII/formation of USAF to the dissolution of the USSR)


This is just idle chatter for the post-forum move. Most of the focus on the Cold War tends to be on mainland Europe, espionage, or ICBMs. The monitoring, patrolling & defense of the northern routes seldom get much attention. So consider this a nod to all the souls that froze their asses off in the pursuit of peace. :java

Just a note, the dashed blue circle is the Arctic Circle...the 60th Parallel is actually the next circle to the south.

The MA Cold Lake contingent is just south of that line, approximately 54o latitude, 110o longitude, 550 km as the crow flies.

Cheers,
Rich

From DDR to the 60 Parallel is quite far... From Warsaw Pact you can made only the Soviets.

Would this count?

F22 isn't really the cold war and not sure if Elmendorf is far enough north, but its worth asking. My involvement would defiantly depend on timing...

F22 is a bit new, but Elmendorf AFB is well within the area parameters. :v
