Military unit of air assault brigade holds doors open day
What is a typical day like of a Kazakh paratrooper? To get the answer to this question we were able due to schoolchildren and orphanages. The military part of Astana air assault brigade held an open door day. The children had the opportunity not only to look at the equipment, but also to sit behind the wheel of armored personnel carriers and other military vehicles. Particular interest in children caused excitement of the paratroopers to show a bit more of what they do at work. They demonstrated their shooting skills,unarmed combat, as well as staging simulated capture of civilians by terrorists.
Radzhan ZHANYSSOV, DEPUTY COMMANDER OF AIR ASSAULT BRIGADE:
We showed for the first time the technique of arms. So, children got to see and know the professionals that are standing on the borders and performing day to day duties. The oldest of our equipment dates back to 2012. We have a fully staffed team and we are always ready to perform any task at hand.
