More than 100 servicemen of the Black Sea Fleet’s marines perform parachute jumps during a practical airborne training (ATP) exercise.

Marines make jumps from a Mi-8 helicopter in the daytime at permissible weather conditions from a height of up to 800 meters in full combat gear.

Also, servicemen are practicing techniques and improving skills for the landing of tactical airborne assault forces from a low-flying helicopter from a height of 2-3 meters.

In addition to the standard elements of the airborne attack, the units are trained in fulfilling the temporary standards for the collection of troops at the designated point after landing.

Parachute jumps are an obligatory element of the annual training cycle for the marines and are carried out in accordance with the combat training plan of the Black Sea Fleet forces.
