About a thousand parachute jumps will be made by the servicemen of the reconnaissance units of the motorized rifle formation of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in the Volgograd Region, in 2022.

Airborne training (ATP) is included in the combat training program of all reconnaissance officers of the military district. The VAR course includes theoretical and practical classes on the study of the device of human landing parachutes, classes at airborne complexes and towns on the actions of a paratrooper when separating from an aircraft, during descent and landing, combat packing of parachutes and preparation of landing gear, and practical execution of jumps from various types of aircraft and helicopters.

The main stage of airborne training for Volgograd scouts will take place this summer. It was at this time that the personnel of the reconnaissance units would undergo training and make parachute jumps at the Daryal mountain range in the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania.

During the training activities, the servicemen will land from various heights from 600 to 1.4 thousand meters, including with weapons and with a delay in the opening time of the dome at different heights.

The scouts will demonstrate the acquired skills during various exercises in 2022, including the joint Russian-Indian exercise “Indra” in the Volgograd region.
