Ripcord

On April 10, 1970, Hill 927 was occupied by troopers of the Screaming Eagles of the 101st Airborne Division. By July, the activities of the artillery and infantry of Ripcord had caught the attention of the NVA (North Vietnamese Army) and a long and deadly siege ensued. Ripcord was the Screaming Eagles’ last chance to do significant damage to the NVA in the A Shau Valley before the division was withdrawn from Vietnam and returned to the United States. At Ripcord, the enemy counterattacked with ferocity, using mortar and antiaircraft fire to inflict heavy causalities on the units operating there. The battle lasted four and a half months and exemplified the ultimate frustration of the Vietnam War: the inability of the American military to bring to bear its enormous resources to win on the battlefield. In the end, the 101st evacuated Ripcord, leaving the NVA in control of the battlefield. Contrary to the mantra “We won every battle but lost the war,” the United States was defeated at Ripcord. Now, at last, the full story of this terrible battle can be told. From the Paperback edition.

HELL ON A HILL TOP-for four months in 1970, Hell raged on the hill tops of Ripcord, 805, 902 and 1000, all just east of the A Shau Valley. HELL ON A HILL TOP Instead of backing away from the fight, the North Vietnamese mortar, recoilless rifle, heavy machine gun, sapper and regular infantry attacks increased. The last offensive around Ripcord was starting to look like the last stand. Unwilling to keep American soldiers at high risk at this stage of the war; Ripcord was evacuated on 23 July. The battle went unnoticed for 30 years until Keith Nolan's book, RIPCORD, was published. As powerful and gripping as was the story of great leadership and courageous fighting by our soldiers, the magnitude of the enemy force still remained unknown. The author, the 3rd Brigade commander during the siege and evacuation, made trips to Vietnam in 2001 and 2004 and interviewed the 324B Division Commander whose first-ever division sole mission, was to destroy Firebase Ripcord. The full story is now told.

The objective of this study was to determine how much pull force a free-falling man could exert on the ripcord handle of a back-pack parachute. There were 41 free-fall parachute jump tests conducted using 11 USN and 11 USAF test parachutists in order to ascertain the maximum forces which can be exerted on manual ripcords. Subjects exited an aircraft at 10,000 ft (MSL) 110 knots (IAS), went into free-fall attitude and then, in accordance with approved Navy or Air Force procedure, exerted maximum force against a dummy ripcord handle (containing a strain gage), which was anchored to the parachute harness. Other physiological and force parameters were acquired through 9-channel FM/FM bio-telemeters. Under the conditions of this study, 22 military parachutists generated average ripcord pull forces of 115 pounds during 41 actual aircraft baill-outs with observed values ranging from 40 to 210 pounds. Larger subjects generated significantl greater ripcord forces than lighter subjcts. For the USAF assemblies, the actual force required to withdraw the pins from the cones averaged 42 pounds.
