    Night landing of units and equipment of the Pskov airborne unit during the SSU "West-2021"

    Unique footage of the night landing of Pskov paratroopers during the SSU "West-2021". For the first time in the history of the Russian Airborne Forces, units landed equipment and personnel at night, using infrared vision devices.

    The release of 600 personnel and nine pieces of equipment was carried out by Il-76MD aircraft from an altitude of up to 1 kilometer under difficult weather conditions.

    Upon landing, the paratroopers seized the airfield of a conditional enemy in order to ensure the landing of the main forces of the compound, and then made a 100-kilometer march to the Strugi Krasnye training ground, where they will have to work out raid and amphibious assault actions to capture a favorable line, destroy newly identified enemy objects, conduct maneuver defense and hold a section of the state border.

    NOTE the lights in the video suggest the helmet mounted night vision systems these troops were using were thermal sights rather than image intensification.

    A mixture of thermal and Image intensification sights were used for filming this video it seems.
