    Typical Soviet hardware like bombers for the jump over the pole and interceptors to try and discourage SR-71 overflights
    The Russians are reactivating several Arctic bases, as are the Canadians.

    The reason why? Oil.

    Rogachevo air base had stationed at one time or another:
    Tu-128, YaK-28, Su-27 and more recently, MiG-31

    Amderma air base (also used as a civil field: AMV) had stationed:
    Tu-128, MiG-19 and MIG-31

    They have also re-opened an old emergency field on Kotelny with the intentions of building a new base. In addition, they are planning on building quite a few new air bases in the region.
