Parachutes of the wrong system. WFP Director spoke about the delivery of humanitarian aid to Deir ez-Zor

The World Food Program lost about 2% of humanitarian supplies that were dropped by airplanes into Syrian Deir ez-Zor due to unopened parachutes provided by the United States, said WFP Syria director Jacob Kern.

Parachutes of the wrong system. WFP Director spoke about the delivery of humanitarian aid to Deir ez-Zor

Air delivery was made every day from Jordan. From a height of 5 kilometers, the order was dropped 26 pallets to a point the size of a football field 3-4
- he said, while expressing admiration for the accuracy with which the goods fell into the place of discharge

He added that the flights were carried out by the Russian airline Abakan, meteorological reports were provided by the British Meteorological Service, the products were packaged by a Canadian company, and the parachutes were provided by the United States.

On average, we lost about 2% of the total number of goods. 8 thousand pallets have been dropped. Each contained 600 kilograms of food. We lost 200 order due to the fact that the parachutes did not open or did not work
- noted Kern.

He stressed that the operation in Deir-ez-Zor can be called successful, despite the loss of cargo and the fact that it was very expensive.

You should be calm about such things and consider that the parachutes may not open, or the cargo will be blown away with the parachute from the point of discharge. We lose cargo and ground delivery. So 2% is, on the whole, absolute success.
- he added in an interview with RIA News.

    Yes, sniper !!!
    The usual landing from 800 meters seems, but here 5 km. From such a height and "destination - then" probably not see. what

      It is possible from the very small
      And also through a fabric sleeve ... There were such experiments in deserts, where the sand is softer

      5. Tactical and technical data of the modified parachute-cargo system PGS-500.

      1. The modified parachute cargo system PGS-500 ensures the complete safety of supply cargo (from 330 to 500 kg) when dropped from the Il-76T (TD) at flight speeds of 1,3 · vs + 10 km / h in the set mode, from an initial altitude of 350 m , when landing loads with a vertical speed of 15 m / s with a wind near the ground up to 10 m / s. The modified PGS-500 parachute-cargo system allows the discharge of cargo at flight speeds of up to 400 km / h (for the instrument).

      Note: If cargo is dumped at flight speeds of more than 300 km / h (respectively, the flight mass of the aircraft), then the initial height is set to 500 m, In this case, in the PGS-500 circuit, a connector is used with a PPK-U automatic device to increase the system deployment time.

      That's why the parachutes were not opened, for accuracy. lol

      It happens, but where to go. These are not landing, but brake parachutes. More to stabilize the fall path than to land safely. On a large dome from such a height, the devil could take it to the wind.

    can be called successful, despite the loss of cargo and the fact that it turned out to be very expensive.
    Of course successful, the allocated funds have been fully utilized, and do not care that something didn’t work out. And when were their operations cheap? It is only Russia that can stir up something similar, an order of magnitude cheaper. I wonder how much the World Food Program launders money on such demonstration operations?

    If the ma had also dumped partisans into the Second World War, they would not have survived before the arrival of the Red Army.
    from the Americans too .... I’ve been fighting with them for a year now. These boobs will be destroyed by their own equipment, they think that the war can be won only by bombing. They will build up their technical power and choke on it. She will decompose them like rust. They will decide that they can do anything.

    Comrades Jews, do you still believe in the technical power of Americans?

    I watched the video with the load. Is that flour? A man stands a few steps from the landing site. Sick, al superfluous with them? Rod parachutes having two trunks on hand. A rod of cardboard, but a tourniquet of something right there .... Is it a cargo reception ?! Hack!
    A lot of years have passed since the Second World War, however, we still find German and Soviet containers in our swamps as if they were alive!

    Where did you find containers from WWII? Kerensky. And our pilots worked as they should. On that and special parachutes, for an exact fall.
