This medium sized map is suggested to be an arctic research outpost in Siberia as the in-game description describes it as such. It was most likely under attack by the Americans, or it could have been converted to a military base as Russian vehicles and fighter jets are present there. It snows heavily, much like the map Sub Base from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Outpost is a large sized map in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The map has many long lines of sight that favor assault rifles, light machine guns and sniper rifles. The many buildings, crates and barrels spread around the map that offer for close quarters combat with a sub-machine gun or shotgun. There are few vehicles on the map that mainly include tanker trucks. With an underground station on the other side of the map players can easily hide for cover.
The Weapon Armory is located in the large hangar near Domination Flag C, Explosives Armory near Flag A, and Air Support Armory in the building in the corner of the map on the opposite side of the other two armories. It is possible to get inside the AC-130 hull in the hangar and hide there.
Despite the map being located in Siberia (according to in-game description), on the crane near the open area, there is a plaque stating that the base is the "Infinite States of Ward Arctic Research Center" with a picture of the continent Antarctica. "Infinite States of Ward" is a play on words; it refers to "Infinity Ward."
There is a teddy bear in the top room of the large tower. It can only be seen when spectating, in Theater Mode, or if one uses a Recon Drone.
