Last winter, the British Army hit a milestone with their new Ajax armored fighting vehicles passing the cold weather test in Sweden.

They’ve been flaunting this accomplishment on social media, boasting about how these machines braved temperatures as low as -36° Celsius.

I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to be outside in that kind of freeze, let alone trying to operate some high-tech war machine.

Battle-Tested in Extreme Conditions

The Ajax is the brainchild of General Dynamics, part of the Brits’ attempt to keep up with the changing times in the world of war.

The idea is to give the troops better protection, survival odds, and a clearer view of what’s happening around them.

They tested these vehicles in the Swedish tundra to see if they could withstand the cold, harsh reality of the battlefield.
