The T-10 Parachute is a series of static line-deployed parachutes used by the United States armed forces for combat mass-assault airborne operations and training.
Introduced in the early 1950’s with successor variants surfacing of the years to follow, the T-10 Parachute system proved to perform exceptionally well in some of the harshest conditions. A staple parachute for both training and combat, the system features a 15’ universal static line and 5′ extension static line while being treated with the army’s foliage green colour scheme.
The T-10 has proved itself in the field with a combined service life of 16.5 years; service life of 12 years and shelf life is 4.5 years.
A truly brilliant parachute which Aerodyne is proud to produce.
