Bakhcha-UPDS multi-dome parachute landing system

Holding "Technodinamics" of the State Corporation Rostekh ships parachute systems for armored vehicles (APCs) and combat vehicles (BMD), developed in the interests of the Airborne Forces for state joint tests. In 2017, the landing force will begin to be delivered to the Russian troops.

Holding "Technodinamics" of the State Corporation Rostek ships parachute systems PBS-950U ("Bakhcha-U-PDS") for state joint tests in the State Flight Test Center of the Ministry of Defense named after V. P. Chkalov. "Now the products are at the first stage of state joint tests, which will last until the end of December 2016," says the head of "Technodynamics" Maxim Kuzyuk. - The first discharges of combat vehicles with the means of landing the "Technodynamics" were successful. " According to him, deliveries of parachute systems to the airborne troops will begin in 2017.

The new system, developed by the Universal corporation "Universal", which is part of the holding company, is intended for delivery to the land of combat vehicles with crew, dropped from Il-76 aircraft and their modifications. It allows you to deliver the equipment to the designated point, ensuring the complete safety of the combat vehicle and its readiness for action immediately after landing. According to its characteristics, the system of "Technodynamics" does not have foreign analogues.

Bakhcha-U-PDS consists of a suspension, shock-absorbing, and also a parachute system. The parachute system was developed by the Parachute Research Institute (part of the "Technodynamics") and includes 11 blocks of main parachutes of 350 square meters. M each. An innovative solution when creating the landing equipment is the developed principle of "forced boost", which is guaranteed to ensure reduction of overloads to acceptable values ​​at the landing.

Parachute freeform means PBS-950U ("Bakhcha-U-PDS") is designed to land the combat vehicle of the BMD-4 landing force (with the crew inside it) and the BTR "Rakushka" from the Il-76 family aircraft. It consists of 11 blocks of basic parachutes of 350 square meters each.

At present, the following types of landing vehicles are manufactured at the Universal: the PBS-950 is designed for parachute landing of the BMD-3 landing combat vehicle with its crew and machines on its base weighing up to 13,200 kg. On land from the IL-76 (M, MD, MD-90). 

PBS-950U (Bakhcha-U-PDS) - is designed for parachute landing of the BMD-4 landing combat vehicle with the crew inside it and BTR "Rakushka" with a mass of up to 14500 kg. On land from the IL-76 (M, MD, MD-90).

PBS-952 (Octopus PDS) - is designed for parachute landing of 125 mm self-propelled anti-tank gun 2S25 "Sprut-SD" with the crew inside and cars on its base weighing up to 18,000 kg. On land from the aircraft IL-76M (MD, MD-90). Parachute landing aids PBS-950, PBS-950U are designed for landing combat vehicles of the landing BMD-3,4 and modifications on their base with a crew of Il-76 aircraft.

In the summer of 2014, the Holding Company "Aviation Equipment" of Rostekh State Corporation successfully completed one of the main stages of testing a new multi-dome parachute-freeborne landing system PBS-950U (Bahchya-U-PDS). The new PBS-950U is designed for delivery to the land of a BMD-4M combat vehicle with a crew and a mass of up to 14500 kg. Of the Il-76 type aircraft, which are traditionally used for the transport and landing of heavy military and civilian cargo. It is planned that, after successfully passing all the test stages, the PBS-950U (Bahcha- U-PDS) will be supplied to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
