Marines in practice perform jumps with weapons and additional equipment at altitudes of 900 and 1500 meters from An-26 transport aircraft. Over the course of the training camp, more than 300 Pacific Fleet marines will undergo paratrooper training.

Parachute jumps were preceded by thorough ground preparation. The Marines studied the parachute system, the methods of its packing, the fitting of the equipment and the fastening of the weapons, and also on the universal simulator they worked out all the elements of the jump to automatism.

Particular attention is paid to actions in non-standard situations in the air and during landing.

In the winter period of training, the “black berets” made almost 6 thousand parachute jumps, exceeding the figures for the same period last year. Practicing jumping elements and performing exercises with a parachute are carried out in conjunction with physical and tactical training.
