Their Characteristic "Cuack" identifies them as of American origen.

It seems to be a kind of migratory and invasive bird.

We urge Axis to protect local fauna.

The Hunting season will open Soon TM

@XOOM The Reddit-published development image above shows a German (or Italian) chute, not American (or British). 

American primary chutes all through WWII had a double harness, which allowed limited steering via side-slip and also allowed a substantially larger canopy. This greatly decreased injuries compared to the early war German chute, and allowed American troopers to jump with a much heavier payload.

Note that the arms are over the head as if to pull the shroud straps, which aren't there yet. So, maybe there's already an intent to replace the parachute graphic with a correct one.

As a detail, though, to grab the shroud straps at the wye, which is where you can get enough of a hold to be able to apply your full body weight via one arm. the elbows have to be at head height with the hands a forearm-length higher and the fingers upward. The current arm positions would work to pull the suspension straps sideways, but that's not the task. See the arm position in the photo I attached above.
