Russian Defense Technology In Use

We have always something to show you about Russian defense technology and today let us show you an airdrop of an airborne infantry fighting vehicle first. The exercise took place in the Ryazan Region.

There are three main methods of airdrop currently used in military operations.

Extraction airdrops use an extraction parachute to pull the load out of the aft end of the airplane. In this method, an extraction parachute is deployed behind the aircraft which pulls the load out and cargo parachutes are deployed to slow the load.

Gravity airdrops use gravity in the sense that the attitude of the aircraft at the time of the drop causes the load to roll out of the plane like a sled down a hill.

Door bundle drops are the simplest of airdrop methods. In a door bundle airdrop, the Loadmaster simply pushes out the load at the appropriate time.

A multi-dome parachute system looks great in the sky.

    The word is “defence” not “defense”.

    Those doors at the front must cause some subsantial drag in the open position during flight. And some serious actuators too, to push them open!
