Servicemen of the special forces of the Western Military District have practiced actions in the event of emergency situations during airborne training in the Tambov region.

The landing was carried out from Mi-8AMTSh Terminator helicopters and An-26 transport aircraft on D-10 and Arbalet-2 parachute systems. When performing jumps, the specialists of the airborne training service of the formation worked out the actions of the personnel in the event of a conditional emergency situation on the slippers of the suspension systems: the descent of the parachute canopies in the air, the failure of the main canopy to open.

Also, during the control check, the servicemen completed the most difficult tasks from the airborne training course – landing on unprepared limited landing sites. After the landing, the servicemen had to seize the bridgehead and organize a perimeter defense.

In total, over three thousand parachute jumps will be performed during the control check by the military personnel of the special-purpose formation.
