Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC)

Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC) are inflatable 'Zodiac' boats which can be both paddled and powered by outboard motors.

The most commonly used CRRC is the F470, which is used by Navy SEALs and many other U.S. Special Operations units. CRRCs are stealthy, especially when paddled, lightweight and easily stowed when deflated.

  • can be launched from surface vessels such as MK V SOCs, frigates or surfaced submarines
  • can be carried up from submerged submarines by SEAL divers for inflation on the surface
  • inflatable by foot or C02 tank in short time
