I like that escape pod arrangement on the back - it's like something Blofeld would use for a dramatic exit in the climactic scene of a Bond film. Presumably, the support structure swings down so the occupants don't hit the water as alarmingly as my first impression suggested.

I believe they do hit the water as you first believed ... there is some reason for this IIRC but I cannot recall the details or where I saw it explained I am afraid.

Here you go ... jump to 2:55 for the launch

Freefall lifeboats are required by SOLAS and SLA in vessels which are in danger to sink so fast that conventional lifeboats couldn’t be released in time. Those freefall lifeboats can be released almost instantly when required.
