The Female Battalion

Icy pre-jump drills & ill portents – Female Battalion Ep.7

It’s -25°C and the ground is covered in ice. Perfect conditions for a parachute jump! Stuffed into multiple layers of clothing, the cadets feel more like laundry bags than lethal paratroopers as they go through their pre-jump drills. As fourth-year students, these exercises are already routine but the girls must still call on all their experience to avoid injury when crashing down into the snow. The next day, they rise at 3:00am and head out to the airfield, but some well-known portents have cast doubt on the prospects for the jump.
