Although a tiny item and nor a weapon naturally, it's worth a chapter of its own as it's an essential item for SAR missions, a genre in itself.  For the purpose of the game, two "universal" types have thus been defined.  The source is a contemporary supplier but details remain sketchy as our query was left unanswered.

Carried internally, liferafts are dropped in the same manner as a bomb would be but for the fact that their descent is retarded by a parachute.

The same item may be dropped to land survivors as these rafts, supposedly equipped with a roof, may be used as makeshift shelters and the packages allegedly contain a survival kit briefly described here.

Not that it matters much, unless the rescue mission involves a number X of survivors, thus impacting on the means to use to rescue them (when offered the choice).
