The scouts of the special forces of the Western Military District continue their training under the training program for high-altitude landing.

The training takes place in two stages. In the first, servicemen make parachute jumps from heights of up to 4000 m at the points of permanent deployment. Here scouts carry out landing using special-purpose parachute systems, in full gear, with cargo containers to limited areas day and night. When making night jumps, parachutists use modern navigation aids.

The second stage of training takes place on the basis of a special parachute training center in the Moscow region. At this stage, servicemen who have passed strict medical selection study special parachute systems, oxygen equipment and make at least 100 jumps from heights of 4 to 10 thousand meters.
