G-11 SERIES; Cargo parachute systems, 100-foot diameter
The G-11 series, G-11A/B/C/D, cargo parachute assembly was developed primarily for platform airdrops and continues to be the only cargo parachute of this size which is readily available for military use. The G-11 can be used singularly or in clusters of two or more, depending upon air delivery load weight, and can be dropped from minimum altitudes ranging from 700 ft. AGL to 1,300 ft. AGL. In its basic configuration, the G-11 is capable of supporting a 5,000-lbs pound payload and when in a cluster of eight(8), the assembly is capable of supporting up to 42,000-lbs.

G-12 SERIES; Cargo parachute systems, 64-foot diameter
G-12 series, G-12D/E, cargo parachute is designed for medium capacity use with the A-22 air delivery cargo bag and with variations of platform rigged loads.
The G-12 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 ranging from 475 ft. AGL to 550 ft. AGL. In its basic configuration, the G-12 is capable of supporting up to 2,200-lbs pound payload and when in a cluster of two, the assembly is capable of supporting up to 3,500-lbs.
