Foil trays into frh?

Postby alcockell » Mon Oct 31, 2016 3:40 pm

Hi folks

I was wondering, you know the foil trays used in Russian, German rations etc- has anyone tried throwing them into an frh to heat them up?

I doubt they'd fit. Besides, there's no reason to put anything but water inside the FRH - despite the instructions. Sandwich your food items either side of the FRH, wrap the whole thing in some kind of insulation, and then add the water and tuck in the top flap.

Not yet...
But I guess the German ones wouldn´t get this warm as they are more thick than a MRE entree. But I´ll try it :wink:

Usually those type of rations. Have their own unique FRH, or use folding stoves.

I think some of the Polish rations have a foil main entree tray, and they come with a super sized version of the FRH.

but then you would miss the fun of playing with an open flame.... :mrgreen:

Seriously, I don't see why it wouldn't work. It may not get them piping hot, but should at least knock the chill off.

I've tried - if I understand correctly what you mean by a foil tray. Actually the Polish single meal rations have foil trays and a big FRH - you can see it e.g. on this vid
Have access to: Polish, Russian, French, UK, US, sometimes other.
