This is one robust X-form parachute!
Also known as crossforms, these parachutes come from a demil'd application, most likely as a retardation device for a mine or torpedo airdropped at very high speeds. The suspension lines are 3/4" tubular nylon and are sewn completely over the canopy. We're talking rugged here, but lightweight. Each suspension line culminates in a nylon sleeved eyelet. Every hem is double stitched to tubular nylon. Arms of X-Form are joined with tubular nylon completely encircling canopy.
