SET-10 & SET-10 XL Main Parachute


For Airborne Operations, SET-10 and SET-10XL steerable round main canopies are engineered to put Paratroopers safely on the ground from lower exit altitudes.  Two sizes - 35 FT and 42 FT - allow for a wide range of exit weights and deployment speeds. Updated harness/container design or conventional "T-10 Style."


The 7-Gore TU steering modification optimizes forward speed and turning ability. The two largest steering vents are covered with netting virtually eliminating inversions. The maneuvering vents are controlled by steering lines running to toggles at the risers.

SET-10 is unique in its performance - while similar to the MC-1-1B in size and gore shape, and similar to the MC-1-1C/D in its non-porous material. The non-porous, UV resistant canopy cloth results in forward speed and turn rates comparable to the MC-1-1B while the rate of descent is significantly reduced. This fact alone reduces landing injuries, improving overall mission effectiveness.

The block construction of the SET-10 significantly reduces the time and effort required for repairs.
