Former Soviet Tiksi (west) airfield was a large unimproved airstrip operated in the 1960s and 1970s intended for arctic staging by Tupolev Tu-95 strategic bombers based at other locations.
It also served as a diversion airfield for Tiksi (north).
Tiksi (west) was only ops in wintertime when the packed snow provided a much larger runway and tarmac area than that available one at nearby Tiksi (north).
