The upgrade of weapons of the Russian Airborne Forces demanded to design new airdrop means. Platformless PBS-950U and PBS-955 parachutes have been created for BMD-4M vehicles and multirole BTR-MDM armored personnel carriers. They airdrop the vehicles from airlifters with the crew inside. In 2021, new parachutes will be delivered to another two battalions armed with BMD-4M.
