    It's not a parachute. The bag is a weapons and individual equipment case (aka WIEC bag) You only have part of it. This is the outer part that wraps around a felt padded canvas mat that holds all the equipment. Once it is fully assembled you attach it to your main pack web for you airborne jump and jump it in just as you would a rucksack. You'll need a lowering line too ad there are three different types based o the year of use. To lower it pull out the pin and pull up on the red bee hive. Someone just placed the chute with the case.

    These were used from the 1960s into the 1980s.
