Re: Newest type of EPA

Still no pepper, no self-heating and no cutlery?? Mmmmkay. But they make sense for field-exercise use only, everything contained in one bag, smaller packs of crackers, meal pouches.

Re: Newest type of EPA

I "borrowed" the photos from ebay kleinanzeigen (German craigs list run by ebay). Here are the links to it. I only saw them yesterday for the very first time. https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/bundeswehr-epa/1046190894-230-6813 https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/epa-individual-com...

Re: Greetings from England !

Hi vespa, welcome to the board! As I tried some international ones myself in the past few months I'd recommend to grab a few Norwegian Arctic Field Rations.

Re: ***18s Are Here!!*** - Canadian IMPs

Do you have a smoked meat one left and how much with shipping to Germany? I'm really eager to try one of these.

Also contained a double wheat snack bread, strawberry jam, peanut butter, Irish cream cappucino,peppermint candy rings and raisins. Didn't open the accessory packet, visual check reveals the Tabasco bottle is go...

A rather pitiful attempt by the Bundeswehr to avoid mistakes from the lost world wars to win the next one. :wink:

Re: 2020 German EPA's

Except for generations of German soldiers using "Erbswurst" pea soup. :wink: Nothing like a hot soup during a nightly fire watch. That's the only item I like about the reproduction or civilian EPAs, adding a beef bouillon cube.
