    Speaking of which, what's the name of BSD's 1st Company, Airborne? I'm asking because of the SzGiATB designation of their CT company so I assume other companies have similar names.
    Hi,
    I don't wanna be offense, but I doubt that 30 jumps per MONTH is required for a paratrooper. As an ex-Paratrooper of the German Army, I made it only to 44 jumps in 5 years. The rule in the German army was 5 jumps per year to keep your license, we were also not allowed to do more than three jumps per day.
    Jumping from a plane/helicopter is also a big cost factor, as you have to pay the operating hours of the machine and every MoD is looking to save money.
    Maybe there is a difference for free fall jumps, but again this would mean +300 jumps per year, what would result in near to no other training then jumps.

    Depending on individual number of jumps, they can do up to 10 per day. Usually, they have 3-5 jump days per month, with 3-6 jumps per day. I'm a civilian parachutist and I make around 15 jumps per month. Remember that these guys are airborne commandos, Croatia's best, not just paratroopers. I assume you weren't in KSK?

    They jump primarily from Mi-171s, whose aircrews get a lot of flight time. Remember that dropping paras is flight training for the pilots too.

    Will that be AMV's new camo?

    Thanks for clearing this out.
    No, I was not in the KSK, only regular Falschirmjäger.

    I remember very well that the pilots sometimes did some funny things for training.
    Like Konturenflug (contour flight?? don't know the correct english word)

    No problem! I have a great deal of respect for Falschirmjägers. You guys know how to kick ass. Konturenflug is called nap-of-earth flying in english and yeah, that's quite something. Takes a lot of skill to do it properly.

    About AMVs, does anyone know if they started distributing them to units?

    1. First of all thank you for your reply.
    2. Please dont give me that crap about wiki here and there - questions. I simply asked, because I didn´t find any info about the mariens and paratroopers on this thread or even anywhere else on the net.

    I don't think the AMV's are going to be distributed until they fully equip them.

    Ok, i'm joking but you are rigth, there is almost a non-standard vhs in the lot , not only the barrel but also the pressure valve seems to protrude from the weapons body more than usual.

    "Black Bear 10"
    Is the name of the international military exercise to be held in the Republic of Croatia from September 13 to 22, 2010 on "Gasinci" military training ground near Djakovo and in "Dracice" Barracks in Djakovo. Approximately 350 members of military police, as part of the NATO project of Multinational Military Police Battalion (MNMPBAT), from Republic of Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic and Republic of Poland.


    Because Croatian MOD media section is unable to publish a few photos, if they were not politicians there , most of these pictures I post thanks to Polish and Czech MOD media.
