Joint Russia-Egypt ‘Defender of Friendship 2018’ drills underway

Russian and Egyptian air troopers practiced parachuting out of a plane near the capital of Egypt on Tuesday as part of the joint 'Defenders of Friendship 2018' drills.

After the jump, the troops simulated a coordinated attack against an enemy, as well as practicing jumps from a helicopter using a rope.

The joint drills include more than 400 paratroopers and 15 helicopters and other aircraft from Russia and Egypt, along with Russian BMD-2 and BTR-D armoured vehicles.

The exercises began on October 15 and will run until October 26.
