Re: New Close Combat assualt Ration

Very interesting! The cheese bar kind of makes me think of the old school Food Packet, Survival, SA-4 (Survival Arctic). That's exactly what I was thinking with seeing that too, cavguy! Hey I saw this one at task & purpose. Little quiches and french toasts too. https://taskandpurpose.com/military-t...

Re: Flying Ration Question (Australia)

The ration looks authentic actually but it not being OD green, I am not sure of why. It is an authentic container, it has the same NSN code. Same stamping. Tightly taped up just like one would. So your best bet? If you are concerned about not having an OD green container to have after you eat the ra...

Re: RCI Entire box question (65 DOLLARS)

Just realized you may think these are RCIs judging by your title to the thread. This would be a case of 12 MCIs that he is selling. The RCI was a larger 24hr ration that came 6 to a case. Just wanted to clarify this to help prevent any potential confusion. Ooh shoot I totally read that wrong. Danng...

Re: RCI Entire box question (65 DOLLARS)

Hey Simon, If you offer that guy $400-475 for that case of 1962 MCI's, he would take the offer. I bought a case of 62's from the same guy for $400 + shipping. Note: The hole on picture 4 in the corner of the case. Large enough for a whole slew of things to move into. (This is the reason why this ca...

Re: Which ration packs contained these smokes?

Those cigarette packs are likely from RCI's. (Ration, Combat Individual)

Nice find - if you list them on Ebay tobacco collectors and certain ration guys will pay about $25-$50 per pack depending on how badly they are in the mood for them. They appear to be in good shape too.

Re: Article: The Russian Army was fed inedible rations

The Russian rations certainly do not last long either. Got 3x Emercoms they expired in March. Almost 100% inedible even to my standards. Only $26 shipped but now I see why. (Seller is on ebay he does ship fast though) And Ukrainian rations along with Kazakh. Also can get pretty rough on the quality ...

Re: Little weekend food trip

It's always great to see your photos of you, your buddies, your awesome camp setups, and some rations.

How was the apple spice breakfast cake? I feel like I can almost smell it looking at the picture. :)

The lemon poppy seed cake looks maybe 5 years old but not 11!
