海军单兵自热食品
I translated this literally.
Navy Individual Soldier Self Heating Meal
Probably, this is the ration of the China Navy.
This ration exists ten years or more before.

Re: PORK-FREE MRE

I am curious as to why this would even be a thing when a line of halal rations already exists??? Or is it the laws in certain countries require rations with absolutely zero pork content, whether meat or byproducts? I imagine that Pork-Free MRE is what has packed the existing MRE components. Additio...

Re: Mislabled MREs

"Red Beans & Rice" exists in the Menu 2-C of HDR.
http://www.mreinfo.com/other-us-rations ... ly-ration/
And "Thai Chicken" may be a menu of MRE...

Your MREs may be the ration of an order specially.
I remember that the component of HDR were contained in "Menu C" MRE.
