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.
