Is this a heavy drop or LAPES setup?

Thanks to Ramiaen for the pic!

In one of my previous lives I recall the USAF and 82nd being big into LAPES (low altitude parachute extraction) operations.  Haven't heard or seen it done in YEARS but if I recall correctly that looks more like that type thing than a heavy drop.

Anyone know for sure?  Additionally the reader that provided the pic says that the op was conducted in Oct.  Anyone know the results or can provide a link to pics?
