(What's in a) Survival Pack


Kaerri's Man. =)
So, maybe you're like me and wondered what in the heck is actually in the survival pack that's stored inside of yourmecha?

So what's in a Survival Pack for our intrepid heroes? Well, it comes in a satchel with a hard case and soft case in it. Inside the satchel is the following:
Some items from the UEEF Military Survival Pack (but not all, as the UEEF is not the ASC). (Reference: Shadow Chronicles, page 93).

Bivouac Bag
High Intensity Flashlight
Compass/Internal Mapper
Mini First Aid Kit
Survival Knife
Small hatchet
Collapsible maul
Collapsible entrenching tool
4 signal flares
2 smoke grenades (yellow)
30 feet of rope
One pair of climbing gloves
Concentrated Sanitizer (48 uses)
Canteen (1/2 gallon/ 1.89 liters) of water
Food bag (10 day MRE-style food rations).

And what's in the hard and soft cases? Well, thanks to our reliable friends at Time Magazine who have spoken with Navy Seals, I say, this is what is inside!

Yes, the universal handcuff key is included. =)

NOTE: I intend to write out the list when I have the opportunity. Until then I'll leave you with the article. EDIT: Here it is! The Navy SEAL survival pack comes with a hard case and soft case.
