Discharges of the new parachute system for armored vehicles (BTR) and airborne combat vehicles (BMD) “Bahcha-U-PDS” at the first stage of state testing were successful. This was reported in the press service of the holding “Technodynamics” of the state corporation “Rostec”.

Chkalov State Flight Test Center (Akhtubinsk). In total, since November 2015 11 BMD dumps and one armored personnel carrier dump with holding parachute landing systems were held, “the press service said.

As explained by the head of Technodynamics Maxim Kuzyuk, the state joint tests of Bahchi-U-PDS will last until the end of 2016.

“The discharge program as part of the BMD at the finalization stage has already been completed, and according to its results we can say that our equipment worked without failures, proving its reliability and high efficiency,” said Kuzyuk. According to him, now some adjustments will be made to the working design documentation.

“In addition, as part of the refinement phase, three more out of five discharges in the BTR should be completed. We expect to start mass deliveries of Bahchi-U-PDS already in 2017, ”he added.
