Advent Calendar #2: Tanks in the High North

‘Tank country’ can mean lots of things, and while boreal forests aren’t usually one of them, that doesn’t stop the FDF from using it’s tanks there. A number of the tanks characteristics certainly maintain their use north of the Arctic circle, such as the superior mobility offered by tanks in a region where paved roads are few and far between. The evergreen forest also provide a certain amount of cover from airborne and long-range anti-tank systems. Picture source: Jääkäriprikaati FB
