Until the end of this year, more than 30 of such parachute systems will be delivered in the interests of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
From the release of Rostec:
The development of the PBS-950-U system was handled by the Universal Design and Production Complex Moscow within the framework of the Bahcha-U-PDS development center. The new system allows you to drop BMD-4M from all types of Il-76 aircraft at speeds up to 380 km / h from altitudes up to 1500 m above the landing site in any climatic conditions. Landing sites themselves can be located at altitudes up to 2500 m above sea level.
As a test measure, over 70 discharges of military equipment were carried out. During the Center-2019 exercises, PBS-950-U will be used for the first time to land the BMD-4M with crews of up to 7 people. At the same time, to ensure crew safety, the ISS-350-12 of the 2 series will be used. This is a multi-domed parachute system. Also, air depreciation of compulsory filling will be used.
The advantage of PBS-950-U is that it can be easily mounted on a landing vehicle in the stowed position.
