As part of the final stage of special exercises, the servicemen made about 500 parachute jumps as part of groups on the “Arbalet-2” guided parachute systems, after which they began to carry out a raid on a conditional enemy convoy. The landing was carried out with weapons in full combat gear from an altitude of 1,500 to 2,000 meters.
