Troop and tactical military equipment.


When you jump into the unknown, you need a military tactical parachute system you can trust with your life. Our tactical parachute systems embody the spirit of daring adventure, designed to meet the demands of elite military operations.


What is a tactical parachute system?


Let’s go over the basics. A tactical parachute system is a specialized set of parachuting equipment designed for military demands. There are various types of military parachute systems, each tailored to specific mission requirements. During airborne operations, this system design incorporates precision, control and reliability. The system is also instrumental for delivering military personnel or supplies swiftly and accurately to targeted zones.


What is the difference between tactical and standard parachute system?


Before we sign off this mission… We need to leap into zone about the differences between a tactical parachute system and a standard parachutes system.


Mission-Specific Design:


Tactical Parachute System: Purpose-built for military applications. These systems often come in various types, each tailored to specific mission requirements. Requirements could be anything from troop insertions, cargo drops, reconnaissance or special forces missions.


Normal Parachute System: Typically used in recreational and sport parachuting. These parachutes systems may not have the same level of precision or control. They are designed for general use and may not be suitable for military missions requiring specific landing zones or manoeuvrability.


Precision and Control:


Tactical System: Offer a high degree of precision and control. Allowing Military personnel land accurately at targeted zones, often in hostile or challenging environments. Some tactical parachute systems are steerable and can be maneuverer to reach precise landing locations.


Normal System: Used in recreational activities may not prioritize precision and control to the same extent. While sport parachutes offer a level of manoeuvrability, they are not designed for precision landings in specific military zones.


Reliability and Robustness:


Tactical System: Tactical systems are engineered for the utmost reliability and durability under challenging conditions. They undergo rigorous testing to ensure consistent performance in military operations.


Normal System: Prioritizes safety but may not be subjected to the same rigorous testing and extreme conditions encountered in military operations.


Training Requirements:


Tactical System: Requires specialized training due to the advanced control capabilities of the design. Military personnel need to be proficient in operating and manoeuvring these systems.


Normal System: Used for recreational purposes and often require basic training in parachute deployment and safe landing techniques. This may not involve advanced manoeuvring training.


What equipment will you find in a tactical parachute system?


The mission requirements? The tactical parachute system includes a range of specialized equipment. Specific components can vary depending on the type of system and the mission requirements.


Common equipment typically found in these systems include:


  1. Main Parachute: The primary canopy to slow down the descent of the parachutist or cargo. Tactical systems use round, cruciform, square or rectangular parachutes as designs are based on the mission profile.


  1. Reserve Parachute: As a safety measure, tactical parachute systems often include a reserve parachute. This is a backup canopy deployed manually in case of a malfunction with the main parachute.


  1. Harness and Container: The harness is worn by the parachutist and contains both the main and reserve parachutes. It securely attaches you to the canopy, ensuring a safe and controlled descent.


  1. Deployment Bag: The deployment bag holds the folded main canopy. When the parachute is deployed, the bag releases the canopy into the air, allowing it to open and slow down the descent.


  1. Static Line: A static line is a cord attached to the aircraft. It automatically deploys the parachute as you exit the plane. This is a common feature in round and cruciform parachute systems.


  1. Control Lines: In advanced systems like square or rectangular parachutes, control lines enable you to steer and manoeuvre the canopy.


  1. Drogue Chute: Some tactical systems may use a drogue chute; a small auxiliary parachute deployed to stabilize and slow down the descent before the main canopy is deployed.


  1. Cutaway and Reserve Handles: These handles allow you to release the main canopy and deploy the reserve parachute if needed.


  1. Safety Devices: An included safety device like an Automatic Activation Devices (AADs) that can automatically deploy the reserve parachute if you fail to do so.


  1. Navigation and Communication Equipment: Depending on the mission, you may carry navigation and communication equipment to facilitate coordination and landing in specific zones.


The choice of equipment within a tactical parachute system depends on the specific mission objectives, terrain and operational requirements. These components are meticulously designed and integrated to ensure reliability, precision and safety.


What freefall parachute does the military employ?


Aerodyne developed the MC9 system to provide advanced manoeuvrability and precision in freefall for military personal. The military primarily employs a variety of freefall parachute systems. These specialized tactical parachutes often include the MC9, square or rectangular ram air parachutes.


The MC9 Freefall Parachute System was developed for tactical military operations. This extraordinary tactical training parachute utilises the latest in Aerodyne’s weave technology. The system uses Top Skin Zero Porosity materials which provide a comfortable rate of descent of about 3.75m/s.


This includes an Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) and Static Line, all while being AAD Compatible. This free fall parachute system includes accelerated free fall, static line, custom pinstripes and embroidery. The MC9 is another Proud Product of Team Aerodyne.
