6 Russian Tactical Drill on Pacific Coast

Russian Tactical Drill on Pacific Coast

Posted on October 30, 2014 by tim

I am not big fan of the army marching and showing what they have, however they do do this and it makes for pretty nice photos of the military equipment, which are to my taste and looks pretty captivating, so why not post them? Also, they do it in Primorye, which is on the Pacific Coast, and not for the first time. Basically they have drills there (and not near Ukraine), and lately there are rumors in Russia that the Chinese army has been moved closer to the border, so maybe they are doing something there. Anyways, here are the photos:

The official story of the drill: “On Monday 27th, marine infantries were raised by alarm, and were loaded into cars or boats and moved to another area for an emergency”. See what sort of things they are up to. An emergency.

This time, journalists went with the soldiers to see how they cope with this.

The elite marine corps, called “black berets”, participated in this.

The first episode was landing the airborne troops from the Navy warplanes into the rear of the attacking enemy.

They were jumping from extreme heights, over 3000m, using special parachutes.

You might ask why those planes are in the photos – were they jumping out of them? No. Those SU-24s were used to cover their backs.

Twice they went on ultra low altitude runs and fire into the “enemy”.

So here come the airborne troops.

This guy is the leader of the Russian Pacific Navy. His name is Sergei.

An AN-26 bringing more airborne troops.

And some other Navy and Army officials.

Then the second episode was landing soldiers from special boats.

First the scouts.

Then more boats.

And more boats.

Meanwhile, airplanes attack. Have you seen the latest movie with Tom Cruise, where they were unloading and repeating it over and over? It looks similar.

      I don’t think they need to prepare if they wanted to invade Ukraine. Keep reading news at BBC, FOX, CNN…..
