MC-6+ Maneuverable Troop Parachute System

The MC-6+ is the next evolution of the trusted MC-6, used by U.S. Special Forces since 2009. It’s tailored for precise infiltration of heavily loaded jumpers. With enhanced features including a larger canopy, higher maximum deployment weight, and slower descent rate, MC-6+ maintains the legacy of safety and reliability.

MC-6+ Main Canopy

The MC-6+ canopy is a highly modified 28-gore polyconical parachute with a 36 ft. nominal diameter. Its unique drive system enables quick turns with minimal pendular motion, allowing control of forward speed and turn rate. With a low descent rate, it ensures safe infiltration into various drop zones, including high elevations. Despite its slightly larger size, it can be packed into a standard MC-6 pack tray for easy transition with main parachutes.

The MC-6+ has demonstrated superior performance at higher weights compared to the MC-6 and MC1-1C. It retains the unique capability of allowing jumpers to back-up in deep brakes, facilitating easy correction of landing point overshoots. This contrasts with the MC1-1C, which requires a hazardous 360° turn for similar corrections. Additionally, the MC-6 exhibits softer openings at higher elevations and avoids damage seen in the MC1-1C under similar deployment conditions.
