INV-II-402 OR 403
The INV-II-402 OR 403 Main Parachute is a 35’ diameter parabolic Troop Back Parachute with anti-inversion netting. It is also available in a larger 42’ diameter version for the heavier leaded jumper. Both INV-402 & INV-403 XL have venting with anti-inversion netting to optimize the rate of descent and to minimize oscillation. Both have 28 gores and block construction using low porosity, high UV resistant rip-stop nylon fabric. Two control lines are attached to the outside suspension line, line 5 and line 24, to provide turning capability.
The II 402 and II 403 XL both provide the capability to safely deliver airborne soldiers with individual equipment from an aircraft in-flight for vertical assault. The system features a static line deployment. It is limited to use in winds not to exceed 35 knots at altitude and 16 knots at the surface.
