    Well I think we all knew that was going to happen , stay tuned there will be more action .

      Accidents happen with all militaries – recall all those collisions the US navy had with cargo ships.

      • russ

        That never ends well for Navy ships. The cargo ships are much more robust.

      • d’Artagnan

        These minor accidents do improve operational capability in the long run. That is what exercises are for.

      • FlorianGeyer

        I also recall a US military airdrop of vehicles that had the same result a few years ago :)

      It is normally the US Army logistics who drop their equipment to death…

        Not wrong and that doesn’t include planes falling off ships.

  • Did someone die?

    It looked like a Bradley after someone switched on the interior light.

  • Vitex

    that’s why you drill :) someone is going to be running round with an ammo box over his head :)

  • d’Artagnan

    The BMD-2 are heavy for air-transport and if the chutes and protective pallets are not strong the airdrop can result in accidents. These exercises are meant to improve operational capability of the Russian armed forces and occasionally accidents do happen. Russian record is very good compared to accident prone US forces.

  • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

    Im not saying this is the point of drills, but mistakes and accidents are “ok”/tolerated during exercises, thats the point of exercises, to get experience that would prevent events like this in a sharp/real scenario.

  • Damien C

    The guy responsible is going to watch his rank hit the ground faster than those vehicles

    • FlorianGeyer

      Surely its better to investigate the cause first, rather than quickly jumping to conclusions, Damien?

  • Dušan Mirić

    They did it on purpose to lower pressure on their US counterpart dropping three Humvee the same way :P
