Russian Core77 reader "WR" provided some interesting information about how they conduct airdrops in his neck of the woods. First off the Russian military has got a fighting vehicle designed to be airdropped, the BMD-2. (Similar but earlier BMD-1 pictured above.) The problem encountered, according to WR: "Deploying vehicles and their crews separately meant even bigger loss of time and potentially deadly exposure for the crews reaching their vehicles on foot. Even worse: quite often crews simply couldn't find their rides."
Well, apparently something about wearing portyanki makes you freaking fearless, as the solution they developed is to drop the 11.5-tonne BMD-2 with people inside of it. Here's how they pull it off:
I'm not sure what they're saying in Russian at the end of the video, but I assume it's "You guys are all crazy, and you're all getting promoted."
