International Ration Review Russian Army IRP Menu 1 (2016) [Illustrated]


ImageImage
Contents of the IRP [No Order]
Wet Naps
Image
Water purification tablets
Image
Spoon, I'd venture to say, just as good as US!
Image
Stove, possibly new version?
ImageImage
Tea, Black, like my Heart!
ImageImage
Pepper, Graphite lubricant grind!
ImageImage
Crackers, surprisingly vary vary tasty!
ImageImage
Apple Jam!
ImageImage
Sugar! Tones and tones of white coma inducing sugar!!!
ImageImage
Caviar of Zucchini, Google my have been lost in translation.
Image
Beef stew w/ vegs!
Image
Now on to the Review!

This red glob is some kind of puree of zucchini? Taste an awful lot like some tasteless vegetable in a heavy tomato paste. Nothing bad mind you, just, different. It reminded me of a bad tasting baby food.
ImageImage
Apple Jam, I duno if in America we just love sweet and sugary stuff, but this Apple Jam taste more like Apples than a American Jam that's Apple flavored. Vary yummy and vary sticky! This IRP could of done better with two of these packs, as you run out with just one pack of crackers.
Image
Now onto the Main entree! Beef Stew w/ veg's. Compared to American MRE's, the meat in these Russian IRP's taste like it was made in a restaurant! The potatoes strings hold up well and do not snap or fall apart. The Beef taste of a nice Roast, melts in your mouth leaving you wishing for more!

I just got one of these. Russian IRPs has been one of my favorites. The only issue I have is they have alot of fat in them.

What kind of camera did you take those pics with? Looks like you can lick the screen and get a sample taste. Nice spread

the schnozberries taste like schnoz barry's!

I use the camera on my cellphone. Proper lighting makes a lot of difference, as well as OCD levels of keeping it clean.

Great review and pics! The IRPs are definitely one of my favorite rations. :)

The vegetable puree is great for dipping crackers.

YTFRC - As I viewed the pics, was thinking you're a millionaire to afford a top of the line professional camera cause those are top quality photos... the water purification photo with your palm is so amazingly detailed, wow... may I ask which phone?

That would be outstanding? I, for one, would appreciate the know how.
