There appears to be a number of armed forces throughout the world who have never deployed parachute troops at all but still maintain the capability.This is an important topic. With the last worthwhile British Army operational jump (non SF because fcuk knows or cares what they get up) taking place 76 years ago, its a crucial capability. Right up there with tent-pegging, field gunning and that slightly weird thing they use to do at HMS Ganges.
So crucial I’m amazed that CDS hasn’t decided to disband the Paras and put the Rifles in to do the job properly.
Perhaps they're onto something.
