The Proving Ground: Russian Paratroopers!

Here’s a great video I came across (thanks to Morrison Industries) that goes inside for an up-close-and-personal look at Russian jump school.  Its really interesting stuff – especially for us old-timers who grew up with the original “Red Dawn” and the potential scenario of finding real Soviet Desantniki landing in our back-yard.
