MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In 2021, the Airborne Forces continued to improve and modernize weapons, military
and special equipment in service, as well as the introduction of new means of landing.
For modern technology – the BMD-4M airborne combat vehicle and the BTR-MDM “Rakushka” multipurpose armored personnel carrier, the PBS-950U and PBS-955 parachute-strap-down systems have been created, designed for parachute landing from VTA aircraft with personnel located inside the vehicle.
In addition, tests of the parachute-cargo system for the landing of cargo with a flight weight of up to 1500 kg from military transport aircraft of the Il-76 type have been successfully carried out.
In parallel with this, the development of controlled cargo parachute systems of various carrying capacities was carried out for the parachute landing of cargo in a designated area with high accuracy.
