      England and other shushar about such a number of simultaneously desantiruemy only dream.

      + also combat vehicles.

      Who knows - does anyone have analogues in the world of our airborne forces? Well, the fact that they have analogues of our MTR with parachute training is yes.

      And so here is the amount mixed with conscripts?

        Does anyone have analogues in the world of our airborne forces?

        Airborne PLA.
        It consists of 3 divisions, consolidated in the corps with attached units.
        They have their own small aircraft.
        Structurally included in the Air Force.
        Composition - about 25-30.000.
        There is also an appropriate technique - ZLC-2000.
        Almost a copy of our BMD-2.

        But our landing is the coolest of all.
        This is AXIOM.
        The teachings are serious.
        The mass landing and seizure of the port also worked out ...
        Such a subtle hint of thick possibilities)))
        Respect Hope all the guys are okay.

        There are no analogues, because there are no such guys anywhere else. In 2000 6th company 104 pdp 76gv. Airborne divisions (now DSS) almost all fell down defending their position. 89 people (about half are conscripts) against 2000 spirits. And there was an opportunity to retreat. Spirits then they even finished off the dead. What other people can fight and die like this? There are no such anywhere.

          I am proud of the Russian people! I changed the 6th company in Engenoye (there the team of the PTGr of the 76th VDD was). In general, I personally knew the intelligence officers. Conscripts are ordinary children, of whom many walk along the streets, and only the army awakens patriotism, courage, strength in them!

    In a banderop, there will be perplexity in the demolition of what they have instead of the brain. They destroyed the Pskov Marines 100 times. All of this. Now, according to their estimates, the platoon of the construction battalion in Sakhalin has calmed down. And here SUCH! Let them watch! These are not crying USA seals on an Iranian craft!

      They have it, but when and where were the Airborne Forces used after parachuting?
      If I’m not mistaken even in Czechoslovakia, in fact, only special forces landed, which seized the airfield and government and military authorities.
      Airborne are very vulnerable when landing on airplanes, while following the route and when landing.
      The Germans were successful only the first case of an airborne landing, when the fortified area in Belgium was captured. In Holland, this number has not passed: the landing party suffered heavy losses, and after Crete, the airborne forces were practically disbanded. Our major landings during the war were also not particularly successful.
      But the results of the use of special forces, in general, can be called effective.

        In 1956, the 1st battalion of the 102nd Israeli Airborne Brigade was thrown over Mitla Pass, where it conducted an operation that ended in the complete defeat of the Egyptians.

        During the Six-Day War of 1967, paratroopers, breaking through the Syrian border, captured the Golan Heights, and the moment of their true triumph came on June 7, 1967, when they occupied East Jerusalem. During the fighting, the Arab Legion defending the city lost almost half of its personnel killed.

        From 1968 to 1973, the paratroopers raided many centers of Palestinian resistance, including striking at the PLO headquarters in Jordan (March 21, 1968, 250 killed Palestinians), destroyed 13 aircraft at Beirut Airport (December 12, 1968) and stole the latest Soviet-made radar station in Egypt (December 23, 1969).

        On the night of July 3, 1976, four S-130 Hercules transport aircraft, with red berets on board, detached from the runway and headed for faraway Uganda (approximately 5000 km) to free the hostages - passengers and crew of the French plane A-300s captured by Palestinian terrorists and held in Entebbe airport building under the guard of the "Marshal" Idi Amin. The operation, codenamed "Jonathan", was brilliantly performed and was only a little obscured by the death of one of the paratroopers and four hostages.
