The LRU-15/F-2B Life Raft Assembly is a 20 (twenty) man life raft - the primary survival equipment for aircraft personnel forced down at sea. US Mil-Spec: MIL-L-009131

The life raft is made up of two single-compartment circular tubes connected by an equalizer tube, a non-inflatable floor suspended between the circular tubes, and a boarding ramp permanently attached to each circular tube. The floor is equipped with a built-in inflatable floor support and inflatable boarding ramps are located on opposite sides of the ramp. A sea anchor, used to retard drifting, is stowed in the sea anchor pocket and is located at the junction of the circular tubes. An inner lifeline, boarding handles, survivor holding handles, a heaving ring, and emergency survival equipment are available as optional equipment for the safety and survival of the aircrewmen.

The inner lifeline, attached to the floor, and the boarding handles, attached to the circular tubes and boarding ramps, also provide a means for securing the accessory container to the raft. Top-off valves are located on each side of the floor support.
