Servicemen of the special purpose unit of the Eastern Military District, stationed in the Khabarovsk Territory, have made over 500 parachute jumps since the beginning of the winter training period. The newest parachute systems “Arbalet-2” and parachutes D-10 were used for jumps.

Before jumping, the servicemen underwent a special training course, where they practiced parachute packing skills and special exercises for a safe landing.

The landing of the special forces was provided by the pilots of the army aviation of the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Eastern Military District. Jumping was carried out from MI-8AMTSh helicopters from heights of 600 to 800 meters to various sites.

In January 2021, the next stage of paratrooper training will be the landing of special forces from a military transport aircraft on the frozen surface of one of the largest lakes in the Khabarovsk Territory – Petropavlovskoye.
