Russian RPMK 6 Man Ration

Postby shawker71 » Wed Sep 06, 2017 11:31 pm

Hey everyone, today I got a huge box from Sniip3r that I have been excited about getting. I first learned about this ration from a video Oldsmokey sent me and after watching it I knew I had to have one. I contacted Sniip3r and he worked his magic and here it is. Unfortunately 3 mains were crushed in the process and it had to be reboxed but otherwise all was intact. Now on to the pics...

DANNNNGG! That looks so cool! What a great find! Let me know when you end up eating any of that. And that can opener looks like more of a sword than a can opener :D :D

I forgot to mention this box was almost 22lb. The butter, kasha blocks and pea soup are unique to this ration I believe.

That is quite a bit to lug around ain't it.

Odd you say that. Logistically that would be a nightmare to tote unless it was for a vehicle team or static emplacement. Anybody with thoughts on it?

Wait until I break it open. It is very cool crumbly blocks.

I was thinking Armored Crew ration. But looks like most of the Russian vehicles I find have a 3 man crew.
