Transcription of the video

Supplying troops by land or with the usual airborne procedures is too dangerous? At the end of 2021, WTDWehrtechnische Dienststelle 61 tested a newly developed system to drop cargo from high altitudes with great precision. In this CDSContainer Delivery System-HALOHigh Altitude Low Opening system (container delivery system - high altitude low opening), after the load is dropped, first a smaller pilot chute and then the main parachute opens. The dropping tests were conducted at altitudes between 1,800 and 3,700 meters above the Altmark Combat Training Center in a dropping zone more than 7 kilometers long. It was possible to complete all test items very successfully – a hit accuracy of below 100 meters was achieved. 62 Air Transport Wing and the Airborne Operations and Air Transport School actively supported WTDWehrtechnische Dienststelle 61.
