MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

More than 30 thousand parachute jumps have been made since the beginning of this year by servicemen of the special forces of the Southern Military District (YuVO).

The landing was carried out from army aviation helicopters
Mi-8AMTSh “Terminator” from an altitude of 600 to 800 m in full gear with standard weapons.

Servicemen performed jumps with D-10 parachutes and Arbalet-2 systems to various sites on the territory of the military district both during the day and at night.

Also, during the airborne training, the servicemen practiced the landing of military cargo.

Before making the first jumps with military personnel, a two-week training course is held at airborne complexes, during which, in practice, parachute packing is practiced, special exercises are performed for a safe landing.
