A paratrooper’s life: Mountain division

After barely making it out of 'A Paratroopers Life: Boot Camp' James Brown moves to the south of Russia to continue his training with a new unit, the Mountain Division.

Here, tank assaults, full contact fighting and brutal obstacle courses are just part of the daily routine for the soldiers who pride themselves on being part of Russia's toughest army regiment, the paratroopers, the VDV.
