ARMS-TASS. On the basis of the Ryazan Center for Special Physical Training and Survival of the Airborne Forces, an educational and methodological gathering is held with the servicemen of the Airborne Forces reconnaissance units to study the Arbalet-2 parachute system. As reported by the ARMS-TASS correspondent in the press service of the Airborne Forces, during the gathering, representatives of military intelligence and special forces units from all formations and military units of the Airborne Forces will study the material part of the new parachute system, will undergo a course of theoretical training and ground testing of the jump elements, under favorable weather conditions) will make training jumps from Mi-8 helicopters on parachutes "Crossbow-2".

The training of young scouts of the Airborne Forces is carried out under the control of experienced parachutists-athletes on the basis of the Center for Special Physical Training and Survival (Ryazan), into which the 3 Central Sports Parachute Club of the Airborne Forces was reorganized.

Parachute system "Crossbow-2" is in service with reconnaissance and special units of the Airborne Forces. It is designed to drop paratroopers of special-purpose groups with a set of necessary armament and equipment, as well as to perform training jumps from aircraft such as An-2, An-26, An-12, Il-76 and Mi-8 helicopters equipped for parachute landing of personnel.

Provides safe performance of jumps with the flight mass of a parachutist with special equipment up to 150 kg in the range of air temperatures near the earth from -35 to + 35 degrees Celsius at the airspeed of the aircraft during landing of up to 350 km / h.

The main parachute is equipped with a front free end trimming system to increase horizontal speed.

The special shape of the main and reserve parachute domes ensures the safe landing of paratroopers with minimal jump experience.

The suspension system has eight adjustment points, which makes it easy to fit it to a parachuter of any height from 160 to 200, see how
in winter and summer uniforms and special equipment.

The design of the suspension system allows you to place on it additional equipment (cargo) weighing up to 50 kg in a separate cargo container with an autonomous parachute system - UGKPS-50.

    We built, we built, and finally built ... Some kind of hybrid of military D and sports, such as software ... We were only allowed to enter the Po-9 after 200 jumps, but here ... Could we combine horizontal speed and the possibility of sharp braking when landing .. .Yes even with such a weight ... Well, if so ...

      Judging by the photo, this problem was solved by reducing the length of the lines to a minimum (you can’t think of anything else with that.) But if its speed is comparable with the old PO-16 - you are right, the preparation should be serious anyway.

        The volume of pockets, the area is larger along the course than on the sports one.
        "hello earth" is a funny thing, although everything remains the same: "Three minutes an eagle, the rest is a horse."

          I'm still not going to jump with a parachute! There has long been a desire! It's cool anyway. Yes, only breaks off somehow a little - scary after all! About 5 years ago, at work, a man crashed. The plane crashed - everyone died. crying
          In the summer - I can make up my mind! wassat

              The turning point is always terrible for me the sixth and I still don’t know why, and then it's just work. The first and plague considerations are zero, only emotions (sorry you can’t repeat it), partly the first lingering ones are similar, but emotionally not so bright.

    HUMDINGER! It is impossible to track the place of landing. What you need for intelligence

      The radius of the parachute is approximately 1 to 15 .. So you take the compass and turn it on the map .. Here and the group’s landing place ... The drop height can be tracked to a meter ... laughing

        It turns out a small such krzhok, for 2-3 weeks you can easily comb it, well, if, of course, the point of release could be detected laughing

    Not enough information. In order to get an idea of ​​the system, you need to know its horizontal speed, turn rate, deployment time, etc. And the 350 km / h limitation is doubtful, the landing from the IL-76 takes place at speeds of 400-450 km / h (400 km / h not every pilot will "hold" during the landing). I wonder if he has a stabilizing canopy? If "no" - then it's more like a sports parachute, and the scouts of the newcomer should be trained thoroughly.

      It is also possible to stabilize in free air, it is important how much the canopy "forgives" control errors during descent.

        Yes, of course it is possible, but in equipment and with a container it will be problematic even for an experienced athlete. Yes, landing with a "wing" requires skills. I think that for airborne scouts something similar to the PTL-72 would be preferable. (None of the "wing" can the lumberjack vertically and this is a big minus)

    Glad for our airborne! Years through 5-8 guess the camouflage dome under the gloomy American sky !!! But as I understand it, the emission and collection standards automatically change? For the better!

      Forced disclosure when landing from IL-76 - 100% death (dynamic impact is very strong). In the USSR, only "Oaks" (D 1.5, D 1.5U ...) were forced to open when laying "on a rope" for jumping from ultra-low heights , but they could also stack for manual opening (laying "on a ball", "ball" played the role of a pilot chute). And with the "Crossbow" - I don’t know. It looks like a "jellyfish" like on POSHKI, but not sure.

    Although such a colossus as the IL-76 is not suitable for reconnaissance landing, there is a lot of "noise and pathos". Aircraft like MI-8 - just that. Recently, information has appeared about the adoption of the Bars-S parachute system by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. True, what kind of beast is - it is not clear, I did not find information.

      Parachute system of special purpose "Arbalet-2"

      Designed for jumping with a cargo container weighing up to 50 kg from transport aircraft at a flight speed of up to 400 km / h. Provides safe landing of a paratrooper and cargo during landing on unprepared sites, as well as in difficult weather conditions.
      Allows the use by parachutists of an initial level of training or with little experience in jumping on a planning parachute. It can be used as a training parachute system.

      The parachute system "Arbalet - 2" has passed special flight tests at the GLITs them. V.P. Chkalov and can be operated in parts of the Russian Army. Since 1994, it has been in trial operation in units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia, it has been repeatedly used when jumping to the North Pole, as well as for training paratroopers. Consists of main and reserve parachute systems with gliding identical 9-section canopies with an area of ​​27 m2 each.

      The design of the suspension system allows placing on it a serial cargo container GK-30 or a special GKps50 weighing up to 50 kg.
      To ensure the optimal position of the parachutist in free fall, immediately after its separation from the side of the aircraft, a stabilizing parachute with an area of ​​1,5 m2 is put into action.
      Simultaneously with the release of the stabilizing parachute, a safety device is switched on, which ensures the opening of the main parachute after a certain time or at a given height, depending on its type and nature of the jump.

      The design of the reserve parachute ensures its reliable operation at flight speeds from 0 to 350 km / h, as well as in conjunction with a stabilizing parachute.
      The main parachute is equipped with a front free end trimming system to increase horizontal speed.
      The special shape of the main and reserve parachute domes ensures the safe landing of paratroopers with minimal jump experience.

      The introduction of the main parachute with the PPK-Uad or KAP-3 insurance device is envisaged. The deployment of the reserve parachute is carried out manually, while at the same time the free ends of the main parachute are uncoupled.

      It is possible to install imported safety devices such as "Cypres" or "Astra" on the reserve parachute.
      The suspension system has nine adjustment points, which makes it easy to customize it for parachutists of any height from 160 to 200 cm, both in winter and summer uniforms, in special equipment and in body armor.

    At school, my friend and I went to the sports parachuting section. The first two jumps in the same group were. But the third is apart. My friend-chick forgot to check the device on the spare wheel after opening the main one. Here he had a spare wheel and went with a screw around the main lines. At the beginning, hooting to the bottom, passing between the legs. Then she began to unbutton, went up and turned his head down. We stand looking, froze. I landed fine. In winter it was. The "alien" was quickly put on a parachute. And into the sky. So he was the only one from the group to jump 4 times. And stayed in parachutism. He was the World Champion in acrobatics, etc. Master of Sports of International Class. VCP Instrument. And then the ophthalmologist hacked me to the pilots, went to the tankers.

    There was a report about the Arbalet-2 parachute. He has a spare wheel in a "tube" in the same knapsack as the main one. Behind the back. The cargo container is attached to the chest, from the front.

    And yet, the Crossbow-2 suspension system is equipped with locks that allow you to quickly remove it. What caught my eye - completely from modern materials EVERYTHING! Not a single airsent. Compact and lightweight.

    quote = Muxalet] Guys! What are the kamenty? In the photo, the dome of Malva-24 ... is it possible that the Crossbow is so secret? ... :) [/ quote]
    Here was an attentive observer. In the photo is really Malva in 24 squares. This is a precision gliding parachute (a domestic analogue of the famous Parafoil). A good dome, which with a relatively small load is practically safe to land and flies to where the pilot wants. Paraavis now offers the Malva Axiom with improved flight performance. Arba’s wing profile is slightly different - there is a noticeable horizontal hump on the trailing edge. In addition, the geometry of the nozzles is different and the area of ​​Arba will be larger - 27. The Arba works to stabilize and with manual opening. A normal dome, but nothing outstanding in it (if not compared with a neutral one, of course).
    In general, all our special-purpose parachute systems (Berkut, Lesnik, Insider) are approximately the same in characteristics. True, Ivanovo (Flight) was muddied by some new dome with the telling name "Dalnolet". They say that he has some kind of special planning coefficient, although I personally doubt it, because I don't believe in fairy tales for a long time.
