Chinese parachutes overview

The leading parachutes manufacturer of China (the monopolist?) – Jincheng company (金城, “a golden city”) manufactures a lot of various parachutes, but most of them are round.


About Jincheng Group

These parachutes are troop SBS-9, reserve BFS-6A and BFS-7, training XLS-3, amphibious training (landing on water) XLS-6, and a little bit weird “low-altitude” troop SBS-10 parachute (it consists of three round parachutes working simultaneously).
As we know round parachutes are purely a drag device (that is, unlike the ram-air types, they provide no lift) and are used in military, emergency and cargo applications.
The rest 4 parachutes are more closer to sport – round YDS-3D Sports (similar to russian training UT-15 canopy) and three ram-air systems: tactical SBS-11, YDS-6A Sports and YDS-10A.

BFS-6A Reserve Parachute

Used with SBS parachute systems, BFS-6A is to ensure the safety of the solider in case that the main parachute is in malfunction. Features of BFS-6A include rapid opening, fast inflation. Thus, this reserve parachute can be deployed in quite a low altitud – 100m, which makes this system a very reliable reserve parachute. What’s more, BFS-6A is of light weight and small volume, which does not add much load to the solider.
Applying aircrafts include Y-5, Y-8(C), An-26 and IL-76.

BFS-7 Reserve Parachute

BFS-7 reserve parachute is compatible with YDS parachute systems equipped with the main parachute release device. This reserve parachute is designed for experienced sportsmen. It can ensure their safety during training or competition when the main parachute of YDS system is in malfunction. Because of its cone canopy, BFS-7 reserve system is much more stable than the round reserve system with an even canopy.
Applying aircrafts include Y-5, Y-8(C), An-26 and IL-76.
