The D-12 parachute assault system is designed for combat and training jumps from IL-76, IL-76М, Il-76MD aircraft, Mi-8 helicopter and its modifications. It has a wide range of adjustments, is made of lighter and more durable materials, which allows the paratrooper to take with him more payload.
"D-12 is a parachute system of a new generation," said Sergey Astakhov, director of the FSUE "Research Institute of Parachute Engineering". - With a total flight weight of 160 kg, the D-12 ensures reliable operation in the 150-4000 altitude range and a comfortable landing for a paratrooper at a speed of no more than 4,5 m / s. The main parachute provides an average horizontal speed of movement up to 4,5 m / s forward and back, as well as a turn in any direction on the 180 for a time not more than 15. Suspension system has a wide range of adjustments. The developed parachute system can rightly be called an innovative product with a completely new quality, surpassing world analogues in many ways. ”
