The personnel of the airborne assault units of the marine corps of the Caspian Flotilla have embarked on the final stage of the training camp for airborne training.

At the first stage of the collection, the marines studied the design and procedure for laying the parachute, worked out the elements of jumping and parachute control on special simulators of the airborne complex. The servicemen also performed complex exercises to strengthen the ankle joints in order to avoid injury to the legs upon landing. Upon completion of the training course, the Marines passed the tests for admission to the landing.

At the second stage, each soldier had to complete at least seven jumps. About 20 percent of the personnel made parachute jumps for the first time.

At present, about 100 marines are daily airborne from Mi-8AMTSh “Terminator” helicopters in full combat gear with stabilization of the fall for 3 seconds and manual opening of the parachute. VAR activities were carried out in various weather conditions, both during the day and at night.

In total, during the gathering, servicemen will have to perform about 1.5 thousand jumps with parachutes of the Arbalet-2, D-10 system and the D-6 series 4 human parachute system. Combat training activities will take place until mid-July this year.
