EPa "Typ I" vs. (advanced) "Typ 1"

Post by housil » Fri Aug 05, 2016 9:30 am

For ~10 years we (German Army "Bundeswehr") had their new EPas Typ 1 -19.

In 2012 EPas now changed from Roman number "Typ I, II, III..." to now Arabic numbers and with their numbers they also changed the contents and what I have heard to now 12 different EPas.

So what is new/different?

New numbers
Typ11.jpg
it´s bigger
Typ12.jpg
Typ13.jpg
It weights a little more
Typ14.jpg
Typ I as you know it
Typ15.jpg
The new Typ 1 with new pouches
Typ110.jpg
Typ I entrees
Typ16.jpg
Typ 1 different entrees
Typ111.jpg
Typ I pate + marmelade
Typ17.jpg
Typ 1 still the same amount
Typ112.jpg
Typ I satchets
Typ18.jpg
Typ 1, note much more sugar now (8 satches), just one butter replacment but now a cereal bar
Typ113.jpg
Typ I canned bread, crackers ("armor sheets"), "snack" (either fruit salad or semolina)
Typ19.jpg
Typ 1, still canned bread, just different labeling, new crackers, no snack anymore
Typ114.jpg
These are now brand new in the EPas:

Muesli and a dessert creme
Typ115.jpg
Also new beverages and a cappuccino

They come also now with (some) new entrees. Maybe I´ll get a new Typ 3 case soon. They have as entree Spiralnudeln in Hackfleischsoße (noodles in Bolognese sauce) and Erbseneintopf mit Mettwürstchen (Pea stew with "mettwurst")
