T-10R; NSN 1670-00-892-4218 (PN 62C4317-10)

MIRPS; NSN 1670-01-420-4256 (PN 11-1-4012-1)

The T‐10R, MIRPS parachute is reserve type designed to be activated manually, by means of a ripcord, by the parachutist in the event the primary parachute malfunctions. Both parachute assemblies consist of a flat circular 24‐foot diameter canopy, and a pack assembly with ripcord.

The 24‐foot type troop chest reserve (T‐10R) has a spring‐actuated umbrella type pilot parachute with bridle line. The modified improved reserve parachute system (MIRPS) has a deployment assistance device activated pilot parachute with bridle line and apex weight.

The 24‐foot reserve assembly is intended for use with the 35‐foot, T‐10 series or MC1 series main assembly. It is not to be used as a primary canopy. In the event that it is needed, it is manually activated through the use of the ripcord. The basic assembly, when packed for service, weight approximately 13‐lbs. The packed assembly requires less than 27‐lbs manual pull weight on the ripcord handle to activate the spring-loaded pilot chute, thereby deploying the reserve canopy instantaneously.

All parachute assemblies are qualified, manufactured and inspected
in strict accordance with current applicable MIL-DTL-6645, MIL-DTL-7567, and MIL-STD-849.
