24h ration prototype review, Spanish Emergency Unit

Post by carlosflar » Tue Jun 12, 2018 8:18 am

So around two years ago the Spanish Army developed and produced a batch of 24h rations designed to be used by the Army emergency unit, a fast response unit inside the Spanish army(they deal mostly with national and international disasters, for example the wildfires in chile a couple of years ago). You can see how they work here(sadly no subtitles):

and here

The ration was designed to be lightweight, weighing a bit less than 1,2kg(2.5pounds) and with a high-calorie count (exact numbers unknown, but i was told it was over 4500kcal).
This ration was produced in a small quantity to be tested by a part of the emergency units, in a very small quantity and thus I doubt that there are more of these, I managed to get my hands on one and I sent it to the US but supposedly I got damaged during the shipping and was tossed away...
Luckily one for some reason ended up on the hands of an airsoft youtuber who did a simple review of it, it's not the best review, but you can see something of the insides...

Being these a prototype and knowing that the Spanish army is planning on changing the food the soldiers receive it's quite possible that in a short future the Spanish army rations will look like these!

I hope you guys enjoy knowing about but sadly I think this is all the public info there is about them...

Examples of food it could contain: hatches Parmentier(kind of like mashed potatoes with meat and parmesan cheese), salmon with pasta and vegetables, pasta bolognes, eggs with spanish ham.
