Russian paratroopers will receive paragliders "Dalolet"

Servicemen of the Special Operations Forces Command will receive new Dalolet parachutes with which they will be able to parachute from a height of up to 10 thousand meters and overcome with a tailwind up to 100 km, according to News.

The hybrid of the paraglider and parachute was developed by the specialists of the Ivanovo parachute plant “Polet”.

“Currently, the product passes factory flight design tests. Already in the summer of 2017, he will be placed in units of special operations forces for further testing. All work is planned to be completed by the end of next year and at the same time to transfer the first batch of unique products to the soldiers of the special purpose centers of the Ministry of Defense - A military source told the newspaper.

According to the lead designer of the Ivanovo plant, Sergey Kirichenko, "factory tests of the Dalneleta", held in conjunction with the instructors of the Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI) paragliding school, showed that the system is almost as good as full-scale paragliders in the air.

Unlike most other parachutes, the suspension system of the new product is equipped with a special seat.

“Since the Dalolet allows them to cover much longer distances than on conventional parachutes of the flying wing system, paratroopers have to be in the air for a long time. A standard parachute mount in such conditions can lead to numbness in the legs, which makes the fighter vulnerable after landing. In order to get rid of this side effect, we equipped the Dalolet with a seat that will allow the paratrooper to remain operational throughout the entire flight, ”said Kirichenko.

At the same time, according to the designer, “Dalolet” when folded is so compact that both the main and reserve parachutes are placed in one shoulder pack, and the released chest mount allows the fighter to take along a cargo container with ammunition. ”

“In a complete set the new parachute system weighs 20 kg. Formally, with a load of up to 190 kg, the “Dalolet” can overcome up to 60 km, but with a fair wind this figure can reach 100 km, ”added Kirichenko.

    Good thing, and useful in the economy of the Airborne Forces. good

      useful in the economy of the airborne

      D-10s will remain in the regiments of the Airborne Forces, and these parachutes are intended for divisional reconnaissance, including motorized rifles.

        The article indicates the recipient is more specific - MTR, which may be paratroopers too. This is not about the Airborne Forces and not about motorized rifles.

        Rather, to throw saboteurs. The perfect tool

      The thing is certainly necessary, but expensive for mass use. This is more for special forces.

    Formally, with a load of up to 190 kg "Dalolet" can overcome up to 60 km, but with a tailwind, this figure can reach 100 km

    Impressive. And they decided well with the seat. During normal jumps when you are in the air for 2-2,5 minutes. and then the suspension (albeit with a pillow) can be pretty unnerving.

    here the info went through, a double-scuba scuba gear was made in St. Petersburg, everything in the subject. You can breathe at an altitude of up to 10 meters and under water up to 000 meters. Weighs 20 kg. Class! You see, ours are getting ready for defense ....

      At 10000, his gear will freeze.

    Class !!! 100 km sitting in the suspension ... or 100 km on a pedestrian?

    They tested it. And now in the series and in the ranks of youth, so that there is experience for future “movements” in geyrop and pendosia.

    Spherical horse in a vacuum.
    The aerodynamic quality of modern paragliders reaches ± 8. This means that per meter of descent you fly 8 meters horizontally (in calm). The speed of decline is 1-1,2 m / s.
    The landing option will obviously be worse (is the paraglider not intended for parachute jumping? ... The fundamental difference between a paraglider and a parachute is that the paraglider is designed for flight.

    (with a tail wind of 100km / h possible!)

      it seems that this is nonsense, a bunch of nameplate paragliders sporting characteristics with lightweight material, large elongation, rare tapeless thin stoppers give 50 km per hour, tailwind in 50 is almost a storm paragliders do not fly, and who will throw in such weather? it’s possible, although I don’t believe that this is a high-speed glide to decrease, so far it seems to me to connect a parachute and a paraglider it is nonsense 2 different conflicting tasks, and like we could

        sorry)) the article does not indicate the speed, koment confused, well, from a great height to overcome a hundred kilometers of distance is quite possible

          Do not confuse the maximum speed of 60+ on the axle, with a balancing speed, materials (fabrics, slings) for a hybrid paraglider paraglider and a normal paraglider, about 100km wind in general banter, purely in the formula that would be enough!

    Special Forces Command troops will receive new Dalnaulet parachutes

    What about paratroopers? Airborne is not MTR ...

    If our pilots had such a parachute, from an SU-24 shot down in Syria, you would have looked calmly planned away from the location of the militant. Life would be saved.
    You might think that pilots should have similar parachutes?
