The Russian Navy Northern Fleet’s separate Arctic brigade has taken delivery of advanced DT-10PM tracked all-terrain vehicles and A-1 snowmobiles, the fleet’s press office told TASS on Tuesday, December 29, 2015. Russian-made DT-10PM two-sections tracked amphibious carrier at RAE (Russia Arms Expo) at Nizhny Tagil in September 2015.
     
"The DT-10PM vehicle features exceptional characteristics for use in the Arctic. It carries 10 tons of cargo across soft ground, e.g. swampy or snow-covered terrain," the press office said.

In addition, the Arctic brigade has received A-1 snowmobiles. TTM-490PS-10 high-mobility articulated tacked amphibious snow and swamp-going vehicles and AM-1 quadbikes were fielded with the unit early this year. According to the press office, the hardware was prepared specifically for operations in the Arctic. The snowmobiles have the handlebar and seat heaters and special brackets for weapons.

The Arctic brigade has tested the TTM-490PS-10 all-terrain vehicles and AM-1 quadbikes this year during the exercises in the Taimyr Peninsula, Kotelny Island and Novaya Zemlya, the Northern Fleet’s press office added.

The Snegokhod A-1 army high-mobility snowmobile is produced by Russkaya Mekhanika. The manufacturer unveiled it at the Army 2015 show in June 2015. The A-1 is a derivative of the Taiga Patrol 551 SVT model and is powered by a 65-hp two-stroke two-cylinder engine. It has fasteners for two pairs of skis, a shoulder-fired rocket launcher, an AK-74 assault rifle and an SVD sniper rifle. The snowmobile also has an enriched-functionality instrument panel.
