Just so we are clear , the military parachutes are not torn or substandard as many commentaries are suggesting. Like aerodynamics in Formula 1, the holes will help reduce drag , increase stability and manoeuvrability in ways that are better suited for military operations.

Those who speak don't know while those who know don't speak...

What are you saying bros? This is a sample of a US military parachute. pic.twitter.com/G19GDW7ETA

They always want to say bad things about the country

For Learning purposes
 
In reply to @OvieNews
I hope you would still maintain this passion for Nigeria, after feb 2023(Tinubu's loss).?
 
In reply to @OvieNews
That's what illiteracy brings, when people fail to read to understand or better still, don't read any more to learn.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Your big mouth. Show us with other pictures from professionals around the world where this is obtainable. Your greedy government have squandered military budgets and gone to buy second hand school bag and you are coming here to yap trash. Stop embarrassing your unborn children.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Sebi they have internet. Let them believe whatever they want to. No matter how you tried to explain, they won't bulge.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
So why were they not landing softly???😁😁 some landing on Cars, Trees while other landing on Bill Board😎😎Shege go reach everybody Las Las🚴🚴
 
Wasn’t that obvious? 🤷🏾‍♂️
 
We here don’t need this display sir,
Let them take it to Boko haram and capture them Cox that’s how other countries do or to Abuja-kaduna railway kidnap.
Our military can do this and we still suffer insecurity in this country?
Insecurity is one of the disease killing us.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Yup, they are called "vents".. The parachutes ought to have pilot chutes on top tho, with such massive vents

In reply to @OvieNews
We know...... at least the reasonable ones amongst us do, but those muthafuckas just wasted our oil money with abject landing failures. Terrorists won't even need to fire any weapon, dey go just siddon dey watch dem break legs pic.twitter.com/MVLhqLN4Di
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Its either the didnt make the jump from a high enough altitude or the parachutes are faulty. How else do we explain them landing hard on cars and trees? In any case, this is Nigeria, we are not good at so many things.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
So their inability to maneuver suggest they lack basic training to use parachute....... Why must we disgrace ourselves in this manner. pic.twitter.com/4CCcn9CV1q
 
In reply to @OvieNews
This holes be like wetin Dem use hand tear
 
In reply to @OvieNews
We know. I don’t think you should bother explaining to ignorant people who have refused to learn
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Look at what your so called Nigeria air force is doing here🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/zyh47CO5Ve
 
In reply to @OvieNews
You dey mind daft people thinking they know everything? You should have left them to keep wallowing in ignorance
 
In reply to @OvieNews
The Indomie genZ have a lot of learning to do...
 
In reply to @OvieNews
You know you are saying rubbish but go on...
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Oyibo already added the hole for air balance and maneuverability , what’s the second hole doing there ? This is a fairly used sumtiz simple pic.twitter.com/M28iri1QPv
 
In reply to @OvieNews
God protect our troops 🙏🏾
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Except they can't even manoeuvre, hence their harsh landing?
 
In reply to @OvieNews
I don’t know what you’re saying boss, but those guys were landing very fast Haba na. But another this if loving ones country means not criticizing their fuck up Omo I no follow oh. Nigeria suppose don pass this level.
 
 
In reply to @OvieNews
You just practice this lie 🤦 Look for a new lie.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Please show me another country where your above statement use the same parachute like ours
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Are dey preparing for war?
 
In reply to @OvieNews
With all the increased stability and manoeuvrability, most of those niggas still couldn't manoeuvre shit. Kudos to those who took training serious and performed well.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Stupidity.....terrorists in uniforms...what do you expect....clowns!!
 
So why them still land on top tree and cars?
 
In reply to @OvieNews
How you take know sir? Shey you follow dem use am?
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Increase stability and manoeuvrability 😂 🤣 yet they were hanging on the trees and falling like pack of cards in public square "Federal Secretariat" ooo 😂 🤣
 
In reply to @OvieNews
So much for stability blah blah.. while they are falling on trees and cars.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
APC military wing spokesman. Continue
 
In reply to @OvieNews
These are 2nd World War parachutes, these parachutes have been phased out many years ago because they do not have any controls or soft landing. Stop defending mediocrity, the world has moved past this. These parachutes are a DISGRACE, the paratroopers will sustain fractured legs.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Well there was no stability or maneuverability in that landing which says a lot about the quality of the chutes
 
It was obvious that they were not torn.
I didn't bother to educate anyone because if anyone who is sincere look closely they would see that the openings were not cuts but circle - like designs.

Thanks for the éducation though.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
I'm so saddened on how Nigerians laughed and mocked our brave soldiers
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Oga keep your explanation e don happen e don happen let’s move

If you wanna lie, make sure the folks you lying to can’t do research m.youtube.com/watch?v=ULP3r6…
 
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Noah build an ark... u know everything
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Oh i see That why they were so balanced on air and dropped down in styles
 
 
In reply to @OvieNews
But the way these guys have been falling goes against your position, so it's either you are wrong or they don't know how to parachute!
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Be defending rubbish. Failure na failure abeg.
 
 
In reply to @OvieNews
A lot of hate in Nigerians. Chai, how we wan progress when the so called citizens of the country discredit the little improvement in the country. This happens in all sector. God help us in this country ooo. Na we dey do ourselves. Issh ✌🏾🕊
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Let them make sure they do it tomorrow 🤣
 
In reply to @OvieNews
Are not a fool like this ???? APC really are fools so no surprise . Bastard
 
In reply to @OvieNews
enemies of nigeria are out there castigating our gallant troops
 
In reply to @OvieNews
How is this even funny try jump out of air plain 5000 feet above sea level, let see how u feel about it, congrats the this guys that have try it coodoos to u all I’m proud of u , practise make perfect
 
Can't people see that it's even cut in a certain pattern?
 
In reply to @OvieNews
You just like deceiving yourselves. You shall know the truth and you will be set free. Nigeria needs help! Simple.
 
In reply to @OvieNews
is it true we lost some paratroopers?
 
So why where they falling from the sky like mangoes?
 
In reply to @OvieNews
The military is an adventure
 
 
I bet you only few understsnd the concept of aerodynamics. In engineering everything must balance that also tells the difference in holes sizes.
But what do I know? Agenda must agend for children of anger.
