Fort Bragg paratroopers are slowly transitioning to jumping the new T-11 canopies. The entire Division is expected to be jumping the T-11's this year. The units have not all been certified on the new parachute yet but soon will be.
Fort Bragg shared video footage on their Facebook page of soldiers jumping the new parachutes.
In March the senior leadership of Fort Bragg underwent training and completed their first jump on the new parachutes.
The Army's new T-11 parachute is a square-shaped canopy, rather than the traditional round-shaped parachutes.
The new shape is supposed to reduce injuries by creating a slower, more controlled descent.
For new Army soldiers in Airborne school, they are using them now and will 'grow up' with them.
Most paratroopers at Fort Bragg will take a one day refresher training course for harness training.
