AIR SEA RESCUE CRAFT
- A small but seaworthy vessel designed for the rescue of downed aircrew, often under wartime conditions. Such vessels were typically manned by uniformed (Royal Air Force) personnel, and varied considerably in size and form. The smaller types were high-speed planing craft, and normally termed Rescue Launches; the larger types were slower and had secondary functions as range control and target towing vessels.
