Beats the AF 38 revolver and 18 rounds of ammo we had in our survival vest in Nam. No weapon at all in the survival kit.
Wonder how they'll fit all that in with a life raft and all the other stuff that goes in the ejection seat kit? Sounds like something will have to go?
Of course we weren't going to fight off a squad of VC anyway. Some of the guys would throw away all the ammo if about to be captured,especially if civilians were going to get them. Because the civilians would use the revolver to kill them.
One of my classmates ejected out of an F-4 in 67 and made it to the ground. They killed him, and his remains were not recovered until 88. Another classmate was a guest at the Hanoi Hilton from 67 until the POW release.
