ONE-MAN LIFE RAFTS
One-man life rafts are used with various soft
and hard types of survival kits. They are intended
for use by aircrew members forced down at sea.
They can also be used when forced down over
land for fording rivers and streams, or as a shelter.
LRU-7/P LIFE RAFT ASSEMBLY
The LRU-7/P consists of a simplified one-
man life raft, a static line release mechanism, and
a special container with tabs for attachment to
the parachute and seat pan. Although simplified
in its construction, the LRU-7/P is comparable
to the standard Navy one-man life raft except it
contains no survival items (fig. 6-10). The
