Today, we want to show you again how they train divers in Russia. We chose the 187th training center located in the city of Volzhsky, the Volgograd Region.

What does the Army need divers for? First of all, divers inspect underwater constructions. Then, they do all kinds of underwater works, like construction or blasting; they detect mines, bombs and other ammunition; work in sunk ships and boats, explore the shoreline, measure depth and do other very important things.

  1. What does the Army need divers for? I don’t know. The fact that the new pay scheme means that divers will get a 100% bonus of their monthly salary, shows just how MUCH the army wants divers.

    • It´s in fact an extremly hard work and wery risky being down there under water and breath high pressure gas so personally i think its well deserved if so. I hawe scuba cert so i know what i am talkinng about.

      • Me too. I also have a certification which is equivalent to the PADI Advanced OWD certificate.

        But somehow I’ve never been in a situation where diving is any more dangerous than most military tasks. And it certainly isn’t as dangerous as parajumping.
