 Russian special forces will be equipped with new parachutes that can land from a height of 70 meters


We are currently continuing our factory tests and hope that we will be able to conduct our national tests in the foreseeable future, said hulchevic. We will try our best to minimize the time required to complete all tests.

There is no such system in the world, hulsevicz said. The advantage of the system is that ideally the parachute itself can be on the aircraft without the paratrooper carrying it, he explained. Paratroopers with full combat equipment and weapons board the helicopter. If they have to land with a parachute, the parachute will be attached to the engine room. If they can land by plane, the soldiers do not need to carry a parachute. They can land by plane or by cable. He added that the use of the system will increase the flexibility of paratroopers and special forces.

Khursevich also said that Russia is also developing four new parachute systems. We are developing new systems, in fact, in all areas, including the new space system of the eagle, the new deceleration parachute, the air drop parachute and the human parachute, he said. In other words, R & D involves all aspects of the parachute system.
