August 2 marks the 87th anniversary of the Russian Airborne Force. On this day in 1930, a Russian paratrooper unit consisting of 12 people conducted the first parachute jumps during military exercises which took place near the city of Voronezh. In 1932, the full-scale establishment of Russia’s airborne units began. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the primary goal of the Russian Airborne Force is participating in deterrence activities in strategic areas and fulfilling assignments on cooperation with other military branches aimed at resolving crisis situations during times of instability and in times of war. During peacetime, the Russian Airborne Force continues to carry out strategic deterrence missions and may also take part in peacekeeping operations. Here’s a chance to take a look at Russian Airborne Forces' mighty weapons.
