During the planned airborne training exercises, the paratroopers of the Tula Guards Airborne Force made more than 500 parachute jumps from An-2 aircraft on D-10 parachute systems.

Early in the morning, the first ship group, taking off from the Klokovo airfield, made a sighting jump from a height of 600 meters to the Slobodka landing site in the Tula region. To perform such a landing, only experienced paratroopers are allowed, since during a descent, a soldier practically does not control a parachute. This is necessary for the pilots so that they can assess the situation and carry out the landing in the future, making only small corrections for the wind.

This was followed by a massive landing, during which about 500 troops were dropped.

During the jumps, the military personnel of the compound showed bold and decisive actions, as well as the ability to calmly carry out the task in any conditions.

After landing, under the guidance of the unit commanders, the paratroopers worked out tactical actions to capture the objects of the conditional enemy.

In the course of practical actions, a concealed advance to the capture object at the landing site, an exit to the specified line and an attack of a simulated enemy were worked out.

The commander of the Tula unit of the guard, Colonel Yevgeny Tonkikh, who watched the landing of subordinate personnel and the development of tactical actions on the landing site, highly appreciated the practical skills of the military personnel, their ability to operate in a complex, rapidly changing environment.
