The United States continued to increase its military presence in the Arctic

According to the US "Stars and Stripes" reported, the US Air Force on March 8 for the first time a B-1B strategic bombers landed in Norway Bodo Air Force Base, this is the first time the US strategic bombers landed in the Arctic Circle.

And in January, the US Navy launched a strategic plan known as the "blue Arctic", which plans to develop a joint action next two decades the United States Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, aimed at strengthening its Arctic military force to expand military presence in the Arctic.

In recent years, along with the strategic position of the Arctic region is gradually improving, Russia continues to deploy new weapons and equipment in the Arctic region to enhance its military presence in the Arctic. From the military services have recently issued "Arctic strategy" to the recent US military deployment in the Arctic often are not willing to show the American military buildup in the Arctic region behind Russia, the future of the Arctic will become the new battleground of the US Playing . US to increase its military presence in the Arctic Arctic background in the intersection of North America, West Asia and Europe, the three strategic center of global, strategic position significantly.

With global warming, the international security environment in the Arctic is changing, "Northern Sea Route" opening possible, then, to be known as the "second Middle East" Arctic region will become the new battleground for competing parties. At the same time, Russia continues to strengthen its military deployment in the Arctic, the world’s most powerful nuclear power currently October 2020 Russian-built icebreaker "North Pole" was entered service in November 2020, Russia completed a "dagger" ultra in the Arctic sonic missile test-fired for the first time, this year Russia will test-fire nuclear-powered cruise missile at the north Pole.

Russia can be seen in the Arctic military construction has been at the forefront of the world, for the United States, which will be detrimental to their military contest between the Arctic and Russia, for which the United States plans to take the following measures: increase US military Arctic measures to increase the presence of Arctic military exercise intensity, cold forging US joint combat capability. According to US experts said the recent US military buildup continued to increase in the Arctic, including increasing the polar speech training and accelerate the deployment of polar research and development of weapons and equipment and other major measures. As the United States in the eight-nation Arctic Council at the latest introduction of the national strategy for the Arctic, does not prevail in many ways.

The problem of finding a large number of military exercises by training, targeted strike capability is an important way to enhance the current US military strategy to achieve the go-ahead of the Arctic. US Founder deliberately enhance their combat capability Polar various branches of the military, thereby coping strategies Arctic contest, strengthen the US military presence in the Arctic.

Integration of multi-military forces, enhance collective deterrence. US Navy released "Arctic strategy blueprint" shows that the Arctic in the future, rapid melting of sea ice and more and more navigable waters of the North Pole, the North Pole is making a gradual shift from "white" to "blue." More convenient sea routes, more competition for marine resources are more likely to lead to military conflict, in the face of continued escalation of the US-Russian strategic game, the US pressing harder and harder attempt to achieve transcendence. Arctic connection with a number of countries, the US military is strengthening cooperation with Norway, Sweden and other European countries, the Arctic Circle, to enhance NATO military forces, rely on system construction, geopolitical competition.

Strengthening the military deployment, so that more weapons in the Arctic in the "Sword." US military forces in the Arctic as a rising star, itself in a relatively disadvantaged position in the Arctic.

According to the US "Military Times" reported that the US deployment of additional defense budget to research and development of new polar combat vehicles, from 2022 to 2025, the US Army will invest billion dollars for the purchase of various types of polar combat vehicles, in addition to the United States Coast Guard will also 2021 started the construction of new icebreakers, and is expected to be delivered in 2024. Slowly reshaping of the US Second Fleet wins the same Arctic military contest. The face of enormous challenges, the United States will deploy more strategic nuclear submarines for deterrence.

And is planning to increase the Navy’s communication, detection, combat experience and stability information infrastructure, the future of US-Russian Arctic will continue to heat up the game at present, Russia in the Arctic has been building over 400 military infrastructure, with a variety of advanced weaponry, has the deployment of a contingent of conventional forces, air defense forces and electronic warfare units and coastal defense systems, the first ship -A Borei-class submarines improved, "the Grand Duke Vladimir" was also directly included in the Russian Northern fleet.

The Russian Navy has in turn displacement of more than tons missile cruiser "Marshal Ustinov" sailed 入瓦朗厄尔 Strait, greatly enhance its military forces in the Arctic.

You can see the years the game between the United States and Russia in the Arctic continues to heat up, both sides are not to be outdone in the military deployment. With the improvement of the status of the maritime strategy, the future of naval warfare is inevitable, the ice is melting the Arctic Ocean strategic position onto a new level, as a global military strategic location, which not only has a very broad strategic depth, and more It may become the main battlefield of the future of naval warfare. The possibility of future US-Russian war in the Arctic is small, but the two sides around the "arms race" in the Arctic is inevitable, and even intensified.
