Red Dawn : Soviet paratroopers jump with no weapon attached???

Soviet paratroopers jump with no weapon attached???

When I was in the Airborne, we jumped with our weapon in a weapons case that was attached to our side.

In the scene where the school teacher was killed, you see a weaponless Soviet paratrooper go into a crate and pick up some random Kalashnikov and gun him down. Each weapon is zero'd to his/her own operator so picking up some random weapon is not feasible.

And if this is their style of jumping, what if the para-dropped weapons crate caught a different wind and ended up on the roof of the school? They would be in big trouble.

You're asking a lot of specifics for something that represents other countries from 33 years ago.

Maybe they didn't count on being dropped right in a schoolyard and thought they'd have more time to prepare.

I think these are supposed to be passive details enough to be plot filler and not micro-analyzed.

U know those were actually American Paratroopers, right? Notice they're using American canopies? Maybe u were one of them?
