Four color parachute question


Recommended Posts

I posted this to Field Gear Forum Monday and have had one reply. Wonder if this Forum would have more information - opinions ??

 

>>Picked up a parachute the other day, raining ever since so I haven't photo'd it yet. Four color, white-green-brown-orange and have seen some on ebay that are called equipment 'chutes. I am wondering if they were military used, Vietnam maybe ? Has a bunch of straps and heavy metal ends so probably complete. Now would there be any markings and if so where ? <<

 

Got one reply, so far.:

>>Some years back USAF personnel chutes were multi-color. If downed you could use it for hiding. In the desert--Tan, snow--White, Jungle----Green. If you wanted to be spotted--break out the International Orange portion.<<

 

Thanks,

JimM
