Russian Paratroops Equipped With Impregnable Video Messenger
Russian paratroopers are now able to set up video links between themselves and even can hold secret videoconferences involving dozens of participants thousands of kilometers apart by using a dedicated messenger service successfully tested during the Caucasus-2016 military exercise earlier this year, Izvestia reported.
The "paratroop messenger" is more than just an online cinema, it is a means of troop control, that's why it is accessible to the Russian military alone, is 100-percent hack-proof and functions separately from civilian networks.
"The new video communications program, which is part of the Andromeda-D automatic control system, is currently being introduced in the Russian Paratroop Forces" a Defense Ministry representative told the newspaper.
"During a recent drill we used this program to establish stable video links between the headquarters of several regiments and divisions ensuring better interoperability and coordination between the headquarters and commanders on the ground."
