The exercise was held on the basis of the 103-th separate Guards Airborne Brigade.

The landing of the GAZ-66 car with an additional cargo with a total weight of 6120 kilograms was made from a height of 600 meters from an IL-76MD aircraft. The parachute platform P-7 with the multi-domed parachute system MKS-5-128Р was involved in the testing.
says the release of the military department.

It is reported that “the parachute platform П-7 entered the division of the special operations forces of the Belarusian Armed Forces in December last year”. Special Forces took two months to master the new equipment.

“During the collection, the material part of the MKS-5-128Р multi-dome parachute system, the P-7 parachute platform and automatic devices, their operation and interaction were studied,” the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Belarus said.

      And to clarify. I’m never a paratrooper. What kind of "packaging" is there?

    I do not quite understand what it means to “test” the platform, which was adopted in 1973 or so. GAZ-66 was moored on it from the very beginning, IL-76 also appeared in the troops two or three years later. What is fundamentally new in the process of airborne landing of airborne landing gear on a security center?

    Rather, the "old school" is gone, and with it the knowledge taught once at the RCPU.
