Bodycam captures parachute jump at international airborne drill in Russia (VIDEO)

Bodycam captures parachute jump at international airborne drill in Russia (VIDEO)
Hundreds of paratroopers from Russia, Belarus and Egypt have teamed up to thwart a ‘terrorist invasion’ on a training range outside Ryazan, with some of the most spectacular scenes from their drills recorded on body camera.

A defense ministry video released Saturday shows members of the Russian Airborne Troops (VDV), as well as their Belarusian and Egyptian counterparts, being marched onto several transport planes, Russia’s Il-76 as well as Egypt’s C-130 Hercules and CASA C-295.

Seconds later, action cameras –mounted on a paratrooper’s helmet and armor– capture the breathtaking moment the paratroopers and BMD-4 infantry fighting vehicles exit the planes.

The troops are then seen storming a mock-up terrorists’ hideout and breaking through enemy lines, all while receiving support from the air.
