The T-10 Troop-Back Parachute provides capability to safely deliver an airborne soldier and individual equipment, from an aircraft in flight, for a vertical assault on an enemy.

The T-10 extended skirt parachute was standardized by the US Government as a troop personnel parachute in the early 1950's, and has been used successfully since that time with relatively few modifications.

In 1976, a major change was made to the basic canopy with the addition of;

  • Anti-inversion skirt netting, this improved the reliability of an already very dependable parachute that many canopies already in service were retrofitted with the netting.

In 1986, the T-10B canopy was further improved to new version T-10C. The canopy was improved by;

  • Increasing the pocket band free length from 4-inch to 7 1/2-inch and decreasing the pocket depth from 5 to 4 1/4-inch. This change reduced the opening shock by providing a slightly larger diameter at the skirt hem; providing a lower rate of descent and a softer landing. All T-10B canopies in service have now been upgraded to the new pocket band length.
  • Designed for deceleration and stabilization of vehicular and bulk-type platform air delivery cargo loads

In 2006, the pack assembly was revised by adding one each static line stow bar to each side of present webbing loops used for stowing the static line. These new stow bars are used for additional stows at the folded ends of 15-feet 5-inch yellow static line. A static line is attached through the break cord strap on inside of the bag under strap pocket and around deployment bag main strap or attached directly around the deployment bag main strap if the break strap is eliminated. In 2000, the T-10D was introduced. The T-10D assembly incorporates a detachable deployment bag. The new bag includes;

  • 15-feet universal static line, 5-feet extension static line, and snap

The universal static 15-feet or 20-feet static allows a solider to be dropped from several different aircrafts.
The chest, back, and leg straps permit size adjustments. Each riser is 30-inch in length with the male fitting of the canopy release permanently attached.
