Parachute systems for the landing of heavy equipment are not available to anyone in the world, except Russia, reports RIA News statement of the deputy commander of the airborne forces Vladimir Kochetkov.


The Airborne Forces will receive a new parachute system for the landing of vehicles with crew inside


To date, the existing airborne equipment fully complies with the modern requirements of the use of the landing force,
Kochetkov specified in an interview with the newspaper "Red Star".

According to him, the paratroopers D-6 series 4 and D-10, spare parachute З-5, special-purpose parachute systems "Arbalet-1" and "Crossbow-2" are now used in the airborne forces; equipment and cargoes are parachuted on P-7 parachute platforms with the MKS-5-128Р multi-dome system, PBS-916 (925) multi-dome parachute systems with the MKS-350-9 multi-dome system. "

In addition, the Bakhcha-U-PDS parachute-free system, which was designed to drop combat vehicles with crews inside the military transport aircraft, passed the state tests.

Currently, development work is underway to create a Bahcha-U-PDS parachute-for-platform system designed to parachute modern airborne military equipment (BMD-4M, BTR-MDM) with a crew of military transport aircraft placed inside the machine aviation (BTA). The state joint trials are completed, this year the airborne landing assets will go to the troops,
told Kochetkov.

He also said that “in parallel with this, the development of cargo parachute systems (of various payloads), including a guided planning parachute cargo system (OCD“ Horizontal-4000 ”), is being carried out to drop cargo of up to four tons in a designated area with high accuracy and parachute PGS-1500 cargo system (OKR "TARA") for dropping cargoes with a flight weight of up to 1500 kilograms from Il-76 military transport aircraft. "

According to the general, in connection with equipping the Airborne Forces with new types of equipment “on the basis of the KamAZ vehicle, a unified multipurpose parachute platform (ROC Parachute) is being created, intended for parachute landing of weapons, military equipment and cargoes with a flight weight up to 18 tons from BTA aircraft” .

If we consider the issue of delivering modern and advanced weapons and military equipment to the rear of the enemy (BMD-4М, BTR-MDM and vehicles based on them), the creation of which in itself already enhances the combat capabilities of the airborne units, landing equipment ("Bakhcha-U-PDS") will increase the maneuverability of the landing technology and will allow to fully use it for its intended purpose in the landing area,
he said.

Kochetkov noted that “the ability to deliver personnel and cargoes using planning parachute systems over long distances and with a given accuracy will significantly increase the maneuverability of the special purpose unit.”

    Very useful stuff! Good thing we're here first! But it’s even scary to imagine what the crew feels inside, almost what’s wrong, and it seems to me nothing to do. Stone down ...

      Horror! That's what he feels. There is a film about the sons of Margelov, who survived all this. True technology does not stand still. The main thing - it is not clear what it is for? This is about how to fly to the moon.

    No one in the world has parachute systems for landing heavy equipment, except Russia, RIA Novosti reports a statement by Deputy Commander of the Airborne Forces Vladimir Kochetkov

    Strictly speaking, this is not so.
    The American record is 35 tons. And I would not call it the “light technique”. They just don’t have any specialized airborne vehicles at the moment.

    Everything is relative ... On the one hand, our paratroopers have a cool technique that allows parachute landing. And the Americans, one unarmored "Humvee"
    On the other hand, Americans are not afraid to carry out parachute landings in a combat situation. And in our country, super-equipment of the Airborne Forces is used instead of much cheaper infantry infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers.

    For reference, the Soviet record is 44.6 tons. Summer of the 90th, just before the collapse of the USSR.

      I have not heard about this. At Humvee, they hit the ground great.

      But if there is no need for landing and there are no wars in which full-fledged armies engage with rear services and other pornography, and there are parts of the airborne forces, then why not use it? Otherwise, why the heck are they needed at all - to pray for them or something?

        The latter was during the second war with Iraq. Turkey got into a mess, and 900 people from the 173rd brigade were thrown to the north of the country. To capture the airfields through which the Peshmerga was to be supplied

            Practice?
            When in Chechnya paratroopers are used on the plain instead of infantry, and infantry is planted with infantry fighting vehicles and helicopter landing is planted in the mountains, is this normal?

              Well, so the army was in a deplorable state, which units at least retained some kind of combat readiness, and they used it, one by one.

      They, it seems, do not have the Airborne Forces as a separate kind of troops? That is, if an infantry general is instructed to capture something, then he has a choice between an amphibious assault and regular infantry. And in our country - to whom they entrusted, he uses his equipment.

        But there are airborne divisions. Especially the 101st is known - they traditionally gain [censorship] of all kinds, but they are more punitive in their profile.

          And what kind of troops do they enter? I just lagged behind life in that sense.
          It’s just that it’s time for the PMSM and the Airborne Forces to pass on to motorized rifles. Airborne forces, of course, have their own specifics, but not so fundamentally different after landing. Well, or transfer to the Air Force.

          Why? In some situations it is more logical to break through the front, in another - to jump over it ... Usually the method of achieving the required is not included in the task. I'm talking about a level higher than tactical, of course.

            Why?

            Because everything is exactly the opposite, they have a "landing" general can steer the infantry.
            The 18th Airborne Forces is one airborne division, one air assault, one infantry and one mountain.

            Actually, the main task of the American paratroopers is to ensure the deployment of a group on an overseas theater.
            For example, in Antarctica there is a totalitarian country, Melkopopiya, which the Americans decided to democratize. It is bordered by the country of Grandopopia, a United States-friendly democratic absolute monarchy. And the first on the border between Melkopopiya and Krupnopopiya appear paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Forces. First, the company, then the battalion, then on the rise ... It is they who will ensure the protection of the deployment area of ​​the group, the security and operation of the airfields that will be hosted by troops, well, etc.

              Ah, that's how ... Interestingly, I didn’t know - thanks.
              But the essence of this does not change. Our armed forces are 99% ground-based and, PMSM, airborne, must obey infantry. In the USA, the situation is different. It is strange that their airborne forces and the infantry are not subordinate to the marines. :)
              In any case, the Airborne Forces as a separate branch of the army is strange.

    "Horizontal-4000") for landing of cargo weighing up to four tons in the designated area with high accuracy

    And what is the order of magnitude in accuracy? Tens of meters, meters, hundreds of meters?

    In the very first test release of equipment with a crew, the commander of the Airborne Forces Margelov V.F., put his son in BMD-1.
    On January 5, 1973, for the first time in world practice, at the Slobodka airborne parachuteodrome near Tula, landing was carried out on parachute platform equipment in the Centaur complex from the An-12 military transport aircraft tracked armored combat vehicle BMD-1 with two crew members on board . “The crew commander was Lieutenant Colonel Leonid Zuev, and senior lieutenant Alexander Margelov was the operator-gunner. The operation was commanded by the father of Margelov, Vasily Filippovich Margelov. It is known that Vasily Filippovich was at the command post with a loaded pistol ready to shoot himself in case of failure. During this time, he smoked more than one pack of cigarettes.

      It would be better if he shot himself earlier:
      In March 1959, after an emergency in the artillery regiment of the 76th Airborne Division (gang rape of civilian women), he was demoted to 1st Deputy Airborne Commander.

      The boss is to blame for the "mistakes" of the subordinates. And the division is already a high level, not a company of some sort.

    We in the 80th with Pskov “fought” a couple of days, so I saw their pictures, that from the 66th remained. Then, on their platform, the trip with the ISS happened: apparently it shook well in the air, the hitch and knocked out. Gazik was with fast-connection equipment, so only a half-meter frame above the ground remained. Powerfully entered without spray. Then the Centaurs began to be trained at Zapad-81, one of our BMDs was either prepared or worked out, not in the know, and kept secret. But here is the risk - then everyone understood this perfectly. The fact is that any unaccounted object inside can become a bullet. We had a gas mask on one of the staff at the stream so that the blue was blue, so there was nothing to compare ... This is a serious and necessary matter - we were running with the Asterisks - while you find it, you’ll find it for a while.
