Glory and pride: Day of the Russian Airborne Forces

Today our country celebrates one of the brightest military holidays - the Day of the Airborne Forces. This is also the anniversary of the Airborne Forces - the 90th anniversary, because the starting point for the formation and development of the Airborne Forces in our country is the landing of the first landing on August 2, 1930. This event took place in Voronezh, which is now rightfully considered the Motherland of the Airborne Forces and bears the title of the City of Military Glory.


The first group of Soviet paratroopers performed parachute jumps from the Farman-Goliath aircraft. The landing was carried out on the outskirts (then) of Voronezh - about 2 km from the city, in the area of ​​the Klochkovo farm. The landing site was chosen with dimensions of about 600 by 800 m.The first jumps were carried out from a height of about 350 m.After a while, Nikolai Polikarpov's designs were dropped from the sides of the P-1 aircraft weapon, including rifles and light machine guns, and ammunition for the combat training mission of the first paratroopers.

The second group of parachutists jumped from the same Farman F.60 Goliath, but from a height of about 500 m.

In the course of that operation, the possibility was fully confirmed not only to land personnel with parachutes in a given square, but also to carry out their weapons after the landing. Based on the analysis of the data, the command clarified the possibilities for the landing of military personnel.

Today, the landing site of the first landing in Voronezh is considered truly sacred for each of the active servicemen of the Airborne Forces and veterans of the troops.

For 90 years, the Airborne Forces have become a formidable force. The servicemen of the troops took part in numerous armed conflicts, fulfilled their international duty, and fought against international terrorism. The blue beret of the Soviet / Russian paratrooper is recognizable all over the world, and the service in the Airborne Forces itself is prestigious and significant in terms of strengthening the country's defense capability.

Glory and pride. Monuments to paratroopers in Moscow - at the Central Museum of the Armed Forces:

        I have friends paratroopers who fought in Afghanistan and Chechnya, and served simply. Every August 2, at 11 o'clock, they gather at the cemetery to lay flowers and bow to the fallen soldiers of the paratroopers, at the gates of the cemetery they commemorate quietly and disperse. All serious and normal men, no one bathes in fountains. Perhaps the cooks, who served at the headquarters or in the utility yard, bathe in order to show their importance and how cool they are, but even this is not doing much, after all, the culture of behavior has grown, this is my personal observation. Happy landing!

      Normal, adult guys behave normally. And they never overdo it. They treat criticism with understanding. Most of them have comrades and friends who served in the Airborne Forces. The parachute slings are remembered by heart. And its name too. The costumed man will be figured out in no time. Well, swimming in the fountain. And figs on that fountain. He was as wet. So they will remain laughing Happy holiday drinks

      I once commanded a company in one garrison, where, next to the communications brigade, there was not a pure airborne assault brigade, but an airborne assault brigade, and this neighborhood sooooo encouraged the signal soldiers to behave well and disciplined - because they sooooo wanted get to the guardhouse to the DShB-kam ... laughing

And also, in the USSR, DShB were part of the Ground Forces, before the collapse of them they were reassigned to the Airborne Forces! And then he came as Minister Rodionov, who was replaced by Sergeev and they were completely disbanded ...

          There was a time when airborne assault brigades and battalions were part of the Ground Forces, and not the Airborne Forces, so they were considered paratroopers conditionally. There was a case drinks And some of their units even wore red in my presence, a vest - only for demobilization. laughing If a friend writes about that time, then everything is correct. drinks DShBr as part of the Airborne Forces - this is quite recent (in terms of 90-year history) laughing

    I join in the congratulations!

    My grandfathers at the age of 18 were drafted in 1941 from Barnaul.

    Paternal grandfather Ivan, October 8, 1941 enlisted in the 19th airborne corps, 18th airborne brigade, 5th battalion. The station Lepikanka was sent for training in the Saratov region. In December 1941 he was brought to Moscow to study. In August 1942, the division became 35th Guards and was sent to Stalingrad.  

    His maternal grandfather Grigory, a Red Navy sailor, as part of a separate marine brigade, took part in the seizure of the port of Seisin in his extreme battlefield.

    He did not follow in the footsteps of his grandfathers, but he honestly passed an urgent one in intelligence intelligence of the Interior Ministry in '99 - '00.

    Happy Airborne Forces and Brother's anniversary!

        But, he only told funny stories about the war.

        o Moscow, there was a ski battalion of Siberians, my grandfather was in its composition.
        According to other sources, the 18th VDB was part of the 8th VDK. This information is about the 35th Guards Rifle Division, created from paratroopers who defended Stalingrad as part of Chuikov's army. According to the documents, my grandfather was wounded in August '42 in Stalingrad and the second, severely in January '43 near Stalingrad, all this time he was listed in the 35th Guards division.
        He admitted that he had parachute jumps.

In the PPD and demobilization could have gotten by a helicopter. The site is on the road, down 5 km, along the slope (gentle) 600-800 meters. Allegedly, a helicopter arrived, after 30 minutes - an hour flies away, there is no opportunity on the way.

    For honor, for valor, for courage.
    For you, fighters! For the airborne forces!
    You boldly took the oath
    To win any fight.

    Let the grief not touch you,
    Let fate spoil you.
    Let the sun always shine on you
    Only kind words sound.

    Take your colors of the sky
    The bright light does not fade in the eyes.
    Let all problems be solved once.
    I wish you health for hundreds of years!

      And I served there and there, I can compare parachute training in the Air Force and airborne training in the Airborne Forces - the Air Force was "cooler"! laughing Because l / s is ridiculously small - 4-5 people per regiment, a lot of individual work with each. And the whole service: packing-jumping, no tactics for you, no engineering training, nothing at all, just packing (including brake for aircraft) and jumps. And the jumps depended on the imagination of the head of the service - today we jump on the water, today we jump at night, today we jump to a car city (like, a settlement). Moreover, you can jump on any day when there are no flights, as long as there is a helicopter assigned to the PDG at the airfield. Others jumped sooo dofiga to demobilization, and on different domes - well, at that time they were D1-5U, D1 series "oak", PTL, T-4, UT-15, Po-9. And the height of the jumps - from 100 to 3000 m, in my opinion, I do not remember. All of them are sports parachutists, once in half a year there is something like a competition: a jump-run of 1000 meters with a parachute bag and a machine gun-shooting from a machine gun. It was called Military parachuting. Jump for accuracy, run against time, shoot for accuracy. In general, it was an interesting service in the Air Force. laughing drinks And in the airborne unit I had 76 people. l / s, but not of one nationality - there was even a red-haired Uzbek with blue eyes and a Belarusian surname laughing , jumping 2 times a year to the "limited" landing area. Even the officers did not jump on the water at night, even though it was included in the program. One dome - D-6 series 4. Boredom in terms of air traffic control! The only thing that painted life was that it was a reconnaissance company. The company commander was a former VDP instructor of the Minsk intelligence center of the GRU, I was a deputy. It was life in the fields from Monday to Friday. We run through the woods, team: group, to battle! To the right, 200 meters, 3 bricks in the grass, destroy! Whoever has PBS guns, they shoot, we run further, and so on 5-6 times, while we run to the training ground for fire training. Everyday episode, practically laughing On Mondays, we run 8 km from the ascent. to the Scout Trail - well, it's just a warm-up before the Trail itself. Monday is commander's day, a bunch of bosses come to the Trail, the Trail must be passed quickly and efficiently with an obligatory communication session, respectively, we run with weapons and in full gear. We "work" at all exercises both at home and at neighbors, up to some 100 km. on foot. There are probably two striking episodes - when the special police asked the group to take spies-radio operators and when, as in one of the episodes "In the zone of special attention", they caught armed criminals. Well, we didn't catch them, of course. They were looking for. Found and closed the question. Yes, there were a lot of things literally every day. In general, not life, but a continuous routine, it was really more fun in the Air Force, but today is Airborne Forces Day, so let's pour and drink to those in the domes! Glory to the Airborne Forces! drinks

    The first group of Soviet paratroopers performed parachute jumps from the Farman-Goliath aircraft.
    It may not be the same, but exactly the same as that FG-62 (F.62 BN.4,
    export modification for the USSR with 450-horsepower Lorraine-Dietrich V-12 engines) from the 3rd detachment of the 59th squadron of the 11th heavy bomber air brigade of the Red Army Air Force.
    In the USSR, there were only 4 such vehicles (serial number 308-311).

    Happy Holiday of the l / s of Uncle Vasya's Troops ... as well as veterans of the Soviet and Russian Airborne Forces!
    the starting point for the formation and development of the Airborne Forces in our country is the landing of the first landing on August 2, 1930

    It would be more correct to write the first large-scale landing together with l / s and BT ...
    In fact, the first combat use of airborne assault forces by the Red Army took place in the spring of 1929 in Central Asia. In the town of Garm besieged by the Basmachs, a detachment of Red Army soldiers was landed from the air, which, with the support of local residents, defeated an armed gang invading from Afghanistan. Such, here is the roll call of eras. If only because the last page in the history of the Soviet airborne forces was also Afghanistan.

      The RF Airborne Forces are the most combat-ready in the Armed Forces today. The homeland is not only bourgeois-backers. Mothers, children, fathers, Russian villages and cities need protection from external enemies.

    I have friends paratroopers who fought in Afghanistan and Chechnya, and served simply. Every August 2, at 11 o'clock, they gather at the cemetery to lay flowers and bow to the fallen soldiers of the paratroopers, at the gates of the cemetery they commemorate quietly and disperse. All serious and normal men, no one bathes in fountains. Perhaps the cooks who served at the headquarters or in the service yard bathe to show their importance and how cool they are ...
    Judging from the standpoint of objectivity, and justice without chefs in the army anywhere. In the border troops (Soviet), for example, at line outposts, they served on an equal basis with the rest of the l / s. As for the household platoon. as you put it, in the Brest Fortress everyone took the battle ... This is if you approach this issue from the point of view of objectivity and fairness. bully hi
