Individual race with airborne insert and accelerated march
(determines the rating of each of the crew)


Responsibility for the accuracy of the paratroopers’ dropping is laid on the head of jumping, navigator on the landing area, commander of the crew of the helicopter (aircraft).

Soldiers realize the time standard of parachute double-event. After making a parachute jump the team is going to jump to the landing area and make a 1 km accalerated march with weapons, ammunition and parachute. Time is counted from the beginning of jump out of the first soldier from the aircraft and stop crossing the finish line of the last soldier of the team. The distance from the first to the last soldier during accelerated march should not exceed 20 meters for subdivision.

After the soldiers hand in their parachutes, they immediately start the second test — battle march with obstacles and shooting on the move from different positions. The total distance of the forced march is 5 km away. Each soldier executes an exercise in uniform with gas mask and personal weapons (automatic rifle with clip attached, bag with one clip, or grenade launcher or machine gun). During the exercise it is permitted to provide mutual support, but without the transfer of personal weapons.

Shooting with АКS-74, RPG-7D, PKP from different positions and finish.
