Excellent, original WWII German Luftwaffe RZ-20 Fallschirmjager Parachute, Fl. 30214!  The Fallschirmjäger were the paratrooper branch of the German Luftwaffe before and during World War II. They were the first German paratroopers to be committed in large-scale airborne operations. Throughout World War II the Fallschirmjäger commander was Kurt Student.In 1941, Fallschirmjäger adopted the RZ20 (Rückfallschirm, Zwangablösung or “Backpack Parachute, Static Line Deployment”) parachute, which is distinguished from its predecessors by the harness’s four quick-release ports. Each release port can be opened by two quick actions. Due to the excellent deployability of the chute from the pack tray upon exiting the aircraft, the trooper would be under a fully inflated canopy just over 120 ft from the plane.  This allowed them to jump super low (80-100 meters) and kept them out of the air for long periods of time.
