MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the Primorsky Territory, at the airbase of the Pacific Fleet, cadets of the Far Eastern Higher All-Arms Command School named after Marshal of the Soviet Union K.K. Rokossovsky, during the course of combined-arms training, they parachuted together with the military personnel of the airborne assault battalion of the Pacific Fleet.
For several days before the landing, the cadets, who had not previously performed parachute jumps, went through a mandatory training program for the first jump with a clearance.
In total, about 110 people took part in the events, 48 of whom were DVOKU cadets. The jumps were performed from MI-8AMTSh helicopters using modern D10 parachutes.
After jumping, the cadets were initiated into parachutists, passing the ritual and receiving the corresponding badge. Upon completion of the events, the Pacific Fleet Marine Corps congratulated future officers on the successful completion of an important stage in the air assault training course.
