"From six kilometers": Russian paratroopers carried out a high-altitude landing

31

Russian paratroopers made parachute jumps from a height of 6 thousand meters. The landing was carried out using special systems for high-altitude jumping, adopted by the Airborne Forces.


According to the Ministry of Defense, servicemen of the special forces of the Pskov airborne assault unit and the Center for special parachute training of the Airborne Forces from Ryazan took part in the landing, a total of 20 people. During the landing, special equipment was used, developed within the framework of the Junker-O R&D project, including the Stayer special-purpose parachute system and a set of OXI Vysota oxygen equipment. All equipment is domestically produced and adopted by the Airborne Forces.

The new wing-type "Stayer" special-purpose parachute system allows jumping at altitudes from 700 to 10 meters with a maximum flight weight of up to 000 kg. The development is intended for special purpose units and can be used in the Far North. This parachute system has already been used in the landing of Russian paratroopers from an altitude of 180 km in the area of ​​Franz Josef Land.


This time, the landing was carried out from the Il-76 military transport aircraft flying at a speed of 360 km / h at an altitude of 6 thousand meters. The free fall time of the parachutists was a little over one and a half minutes, the descent on the open canopy was about five. All paratroopers landed safely, no accidents happened.

The new system was put into service in 2020, at the same time the first batch of new generation parachutes entered the special forces of the Airborne Forces.

    All this, of course, is very good. Let it be, the pocket does not pull the stock. But why jump from a height of 10m in the Far North? The paratroopers already have enough andrenaline.

      jump in conditions where the aircraft is not reachable by means of MANPADS. And the topic of the Far North is especially hot in the future, given the interest in it among all

        In addition to MANPADS, the potential enemy has no other air defense systems.

          some sarcasm is out of place. If we abstract from the general stupidity inherent in the Russian army, then it is unlikely that anyone will be in a sober mind to parachute to an object covered by an air defense facility as part of a medium-range air defense system.

            To abstract from the general's stupidity in the fact of landing in the Arctic from a height of 6000 meters, I do not succeed in any way.
            I have great doubts about the common sense of those who come up with such miracles.
            But when they are trying to literally pull justifications to these miracles ....... nothing but sarcasm comes to mind.
            Do not blame me.

              strange position. At all times, tests are carried out of both types of weapons and means of application, in extreme conditions, along the upper limit of tolerances. This is done in order to: 1. test the technique or application. 2. to describe all the parameters of the influence of the environment and the reaction to them of the tested object.
              All of these tests are not carried out in order to evoke emotions from the sofa makers.

                Wrong.
                In this case, these tests are precisely for the stormy delight of the sofa makers.
                It has no practical (combat) value. The Chkalov fives, for example, did not have any practical application. Window dressing. Ballet. A distracted from reality, but a very effective show for the layman.
                I finish here, because I do not see any positive prospects for the continuation.
                All the best.

                  How do you know? What do you have other than an assumption? In fact, nothing. By the nature of my work, I had to attend dozens of tests. Not only on the ground, but also on the WTC and on practical flight. And the technique is tested not only in all flight modes, but under conditions that, in ordinary practice, are instantly drawn as a prerequisite for a flight incident. For example, how would you model the stall behavior of an airplane without testing? What are the stall parameters: ground speed, vertical speed, drift, roll and slip angle, thrust mode, etc.
                  And besides, there are tests that are part of the military PR. Those. serve as a statement of the capabilities and aspirations that the Russian Federation wants to realize through its army at a particular theater. The regions of the North have recently been a tidbit for many countries. Our teachings there are a kind of statement. And this is good.
                  Well, as for the sofas ... well, there are parades for you, all sorts of military shows, and so on. More is not necessary.

            You have substantiated the drop height by the parachute capabilities.
            With a quote from the material, I showed that in this case your justification does not work, since the jump was protracted.

      Checking the capabilities of the parachute. The higher you throw, the farther you can fly away from the point of throw on this wing. Opening height - after all, it is decided by the person performing the tactical task. laughing

      And the paratroopers do not shine, they have written in the medical book - except for experimental and high-altitude jumps. Patriotic dough cut, I guess laughing

    Well done. When I see sketches about the pointlessness of landing when there is air defense, I recall 90 and discussions in society imposed by certain characters on the topic - why do we need an army, we are not going to attack anyone, why do we need the automotive industry, because we do not know how to make cars and Mercedes with BMWs better, why make planes if Boeing makes them better, friends from the west will help. They helped. "Landing in air defense conditions is a relic of the past," but only the Yankees and NATO have units trained and sharpened for airborne assault, including those with equipment. The equipment is being run-in under different conditions, a skill is being developed that may come in handy. And for the especially gifted it is written that it was not conscripts who jumped, but specialists / experts in parachute training.
