On the average size icebreaker what is the forward progress speed through one foot thick ice, two foot, three foot, etcetera? What is the typical thickness of ice normally encountered? What is the maximum thickness that can be broken? Do the cargo and other commercial ships that use these cleared shipping lanes compensate the respective governments? That is does a Russian fishing trawler write a check to the US for example.
