I got a brand new weapon case (I think) a while back. I think it is Aerial Drop Case for a weapon but I am not sure. It is woodland camo, with some padding, lots of straps and silver metal buckles. I found a stamped marking (some of the markings are a little fudged so I am not sure if I read them correctly) and it reads:

81397-ASBY 11-1-6966-1
CONT. NO. DAAD - 15 -99-C-002
AERIAL 70133
Date MFR 5/00

Anybody got a clue as to specifically what this is?
Here are some pics:

Ya know, IIRC it was decades ago when it was first published that marajuana makes ya forget things.

ps - I find a receipt for the purchase always comes in handy at a time like this.

No receipt. Got it with some other stuff. Guy I got it from said it was a weapons case of some sort but not sure for what or how to use it. It really does look like a drop case for some weapon. I am trying to find out for what weapon specifically.

As for the marijuana.....never partook

So it's a case that holds a packed parachute? It seems awefully long for that...

If it's about 57" long, that's the one.

A lot of good camo, straps, buckles, and hooks there. Find someone with a heavy duty sewing machine and make some tacicool gear from it.

Not a bad idea. Maybe I will make this into some kind of drag bag/shooting mat.....
