Training of 63rd Parachute Brigade Combat Teams
Wednesday, 10.8.2022 | Training
Members of the 63rd Parachute Brigade performed training parachute jumps in night conditions in the wider area of Novi Pazar.
The jumps were carried out from Mi-8 helicopters of the Air Force and Air Defence Forces, using the high jump and low opening technique, with the use of special wing-type parachutes, which enable precise landing on inaccessible terrain.
The training of the combat teams of the 63rd Parachute Brigade in night conditions was attended by the SAF Chief of the General Staff, General Milan Mojsilović. On this occasion, he also made sure that the professional staff of this unit is exceptionally qualified for free fall parachute jumps with equipment and weapons and the execution of combat operations after a helicopter landing.
Night jumps from different types of aircraft represent one of the most important segments of advanced parachute training with the aim of training and checking the ability of the special teams of the 63rd Parachute Brigade to carry out combat tasks and apply vertical maneuvers in night conditions and on unknown terrain, while achieving the element of surprise.
The continuous implementation of complex combat training in all weather and terrain conditions ensures the ultimate training and psychophysical preparedness of the members of the 63rd Parachute Brigade and improves the overall ability of this SAF elite unit to perform special combat activities and operations of special importance.
