This is what you call bleeding edge DEVelopment. ;-)
The same in the Netherlands, they also have heavily armed US forces patrolling the entry way and there is a big moat with mines (or other kinds of booby traps, the actual data is state secret, everything is built by US companies)
This is a sketch of it which shows the most and entry lane quite well.
Also I see soldiers on the roof quite often, as if they are under constant threat.
Welded? I mean cutter blades are so thin, how didn't they burn down....
Unless maybe they used Kemp :?
But then again, these blades are stainless steel. Bend them to a side and they'll pop. Hit 'em w/ a hammer or a rock and they'll break whereever you want.
But I've gotta admit, it looks scary. Though as for russians I'd expect something more rugged
From the photo it looks like they are not welded but tightened with a bolt and a nut.
MIG in spite being better than stick in that situation wouldnt work.
It has to be TIG or oxy-acetylene.
But knowing russians they propably used first two and targeted the thick pipe mostly so the blade wouldnt melt. Still that is a stupid idea and they could have put something better suited for that job, of scaring away people, like Trump
For legal reasons the last part is a joke.
Edit: Further inspection of the picture reveals that those box cutter blades are actualy box cutter knifes and they are bolted to a metal piece that is welded to a pole.
So even if they were welded, they propably have metal casings that would be thick enough to weld (depends if casing is made of weldable metal tho)
