The MC1 series troop back personnel parachutes are designed to provide precise, maneuverable, and safe landings for airborne soldiers and their equipment. This series is particularly suited for premeditated jumps requiring accurate landings in small target areas.


MC1-1D (SkyInnovation Modified) Parachute is optimized for premeditated jumps where precision and soft landings are crucial. Key features include:

  • Improved Deployment Bag: Features a universal static line and upgraded canopy cloth with 0-5 CFM porosity per MIL-C-44378 specifications, reducing the rate of descent in high-altitude drop zones.

  • Enhanced Comfort: Modified harness and pack with longer shoulder pads, a saddle cushion, and an added yoke flap for better handling and comfort.

MC1-1B Parachute

The MC1-1B is ideal for precise landings in small target areas. It shares the basic canopy design with the T-10B but includes:

  • Maneuverable Canopy: Eleven cut-out areas in the 30 gores create a gliding descent.

  • Control Lines: Two control lines extending from outboard orifices to toggles enable 360° turns.

  • Anti-Inversion Net: A 3-3/4 inch mesh net attached to the canopy skirt extends 18 inches below for enhanced reliability.
