Under Samara, the special forces carried out the landing from the extreme heights of parachute training

In the Samara region, the competition of special units of the Central Military District, which attracts attention, was held. Special purpose military personnel performed parachute jumps from extreme heights without special oxygen supply devices. The press service of the Central Military District on this issue reports:

Special Forces officers of the Central Military District made a landing from Mi-8 helicopters from altitudes up to four thousand meters to a platform with a radius of 25 meters. This height is considered to be the maximum in parachute training - jumps from four thousand meters and high altitudes are performed only with oxygen equipment.

Under Samara, the special forces carried out the landing from the extreme heights of parachute training

Jumps were performed at wind speeds up to 6 m / s. The participants of the competition used a special parachute system “Crossbow-2”, which provides a safe landing from various heights with a flight mass up to 150 kg (a parachutist with equipment). The range of trouble-free operation "Crossbow-2" - from minus 35 to plus 35 Celsius. Landing can be performed while the aircraft is flying at speeds up to 350 km / h.

The harness has eight adjustment points that allow you to adjust for height (the limiting value is the height of the parachuter 2 m). The parachute system has an important function of rapidly reducing speed before the parachutist makes contact with the ground.

RIA News quotes the representative of the press service of the Central Military District:

The command assessed the participants according to the level of complexity and correctness of the elements of aerial acrobatics performed, as well as the accuracy of landing. The best commandos received letters of thanks from the commander of the special forces unit of the district.

    Well done guys, paratroopers - paratroopers! It can be very useful (do not bring, of course ...) in hostilities.

      And what a beautiful parachute!
      I also always thought - why are the parachutes white, because this is an unmasking factor! And here is what you need - in the color of the sky!
      And some kind of two-layer!
      I am happy for our paratroopers!

    What nonsense, 4000 m is a normal jump height and 4500 jump without oxygen, L-410 and AN-28 lift there easily, we jump from 4000 m on DZ and tandems, 4500 are given on weekends for the first ascent. With oxygen, they jump from 6000 m, when they collect very large (record) formations.

    Well done paratroopers!
    Although I myself am a tanker, I jumped with a parachute with a round dome. I envy those who jump with new parachutes. I will no longer be allowed to jump.

      So the crossbow is not a replacement for round domes, it is an addition and not for everyone!

    The photo is not at all a Crossbow, there is an ordinary "Malva 24" classic precision parachute of domestic production, such as a wing. And you can jump in a stronger wind, on a round technique up to 5 meters, and with a wing and 10 m / s you can. Even the landing will be softer, the pillow will turn out better. The cushion is the function of the rapid deceleration. smile

      I completely agree! Crossbow 9 sections and not seven as in the photo! Although the TTDs are similar, the same oak and not agile.

    From high altitudes this is normal for flyers, and lads have too much time not to teleport their sight.
