No country in the world has contributed to the development of the Airborne Forces comparable to that made by Russia. The Airborne Forces were an integral part of the Theory of Deep Operation developed in 30, and as early as 1935, a brigade was disembarked at the large exercises of the Red Army near Kiev.
In the course of the Great Patriotic War, paratroopers' formations distinguished themselves in battles, fighting, as a rule, as ordinary infantry. And although the Airborne Forces participated in several amphibious operations against the Germans, the largest Soviet amphibious operation was carried out against the Japanese during Operation Augustovskaya Storm in Manchuria in 1945. After the end of the war, the Airborne Forces became a separate branch of the armed forces, transferred to the command of the legendary General Margelov, creating a developed doctrine and material part, which are unparalleled in any other country in the world.
