General Information

General Information
The G-12 64ft (19.5m) Cargo Parachute Assembly was developed primarily for use in the deceleration and stabilization of bulk-type platform air delivery cargo loads. The G-12 can be used singularly or in clusters of two or more, depending upon air delivery load weight, and can be dropped from minimum altitudes rang- ing from 475ft AGL (144.7m) to 550 ft AGL (167.6m). In its basic configuration, the G-12 is capable of sup- porting up to 2,200-lbs (1,028kg) pound payload and when in a cluster of two, the assembly is capable of supporting up to 3,500-lbs (1,587kg). All material colors are U.S. Army Foliage Green #504.
