Can anyone advise what type of projectile has a trajectory as shown in this pic?

Seems it just runs out of kinetic energy and drops to earth, I'd have expected a smoother flight path but know nothing about the subject.

Para illum. The round should be fired at a higher trajectory, then the parachute opens and it floats to the ground. I have used them in this way to mark targets and lines of advance at night. Set the fuse to zero and it open on the ground.

Most memorable moment: Call of duty, right before you make the assault on the barn house, they are like... OMG IT'S A FLARE! And that annoying *** siren goes off, and you are like... shit an MG

Thanks - a parachute explains the strange trajectory. Thanks
