In the course of airborne training with special-purpose units of the Eastern Military District, parachute jumps of military personnel and dumping of cargo were made in the Khabarovsk Territory.

Before the practical execution of jumps with personnel, thorough ground preparation was carried out. Under the guidance of experienced instructors, safety briefings and landing skills were trained.

The jumps were performed with standard weapons and equipment. After landing on unfamiliar terrain, the servicemen performed tasks to search for the dropped cargo and go to the assembly point with it.

The landing of personnel and the dropping of cargo was carried out from the Mi-8amtsh “Terminator” helicopters of the Air Force and Air Defense Army aviation formations from a height of 600 meters using the “Arbalet-2” parachute system.
