Airborne gear during the Korean War
Posted 08 November 2010 - 07:43 PM
Did they use the M-1936 as in WWII, or was there a way to rig the M-1945 for airborne use?
I've been looknig, but my search-jitsu has been weak. Maybe some period pics, or even better would be a lay out :ermm: :pinch:

Does anyone know if the carrying of that pack board caused frequent injuries upon landing? Great photos, thanks.
Only if the soldier forgot to deploy the line...
As I understand it, the packboard was attached to a rope they were supposed to let go before landing. If they forgot to do this, which I doubt, I would suspect they were hurt.
