Survival Vest and Flotation Question


Recommended Posts

Would the SV-2 survival vest and LPU-23 life preserver be correct for a mid 90's USMC Prowler crewman? Or, would the SV-2b also work? I'm about to venture into some new territory by possibly putting together a full display. I have the flight helmet, torso harness and csu15 G-suit all from the same aviator who was ECMO on Prowlers. I figure the next step would be the vest and flotation device and then I will worry about possibly adding the vest contents.

RIP Molly...Oct. 2000 - July 2013 For 13 years you have been my best friend and companion, giving love and asking only for love in return. May you rest now, free from your pain. I will miss you girl, and will keep you in my heart forever....the sweetest dog and best friend ever! I'll see you again one day.

For a mid 1990s USMC EA-6B Prowler ECMO, I would use the sage green SV-2B survival vest along with the LPU-23B/P or LPU-23C/P life

preserver unit with printed yellow warnings instead of the earlier black and white glue on warnings. The flare and dye pouches

for the LPU were probably not used at this time. Hope this helps.

Thanks. That is what I needed.
