Invasion II Non-Steerable
TPDS-INV-II-400 or 401XL
The TPDS Invasion II Non-Steerable Main Parachute is a 35’ diameter parabolic Troop Back Parachute with anti-inversion netting. It is also available in a larger 42’ diameter version for the heavier loaded jumper. Both INV-400 & INV-401 XL have venting with anti-inversion netting to optimize the rate of descent and to minimize oscillation. Both have 28 gores and block construction using low porosity, high UV resistant rip-stop nylon fabric.
The Invasion II 400 and Invasion II 401 XL both provide the capability to safely deliver airborne soldiers with individual equipment from an aircraft in-flight for vertical assault. The system features a static line deployment. It is limited to use in winds not to exceed 35 knots at altitude and 16 knots at the surface.
