Allegedly Austrian Ration

Postby housil » Sat Jun 14, 2008 6:24 am

"Nobody" has seen an Austrian Raion yet - thats why there are more rumors than facts about them.

Sometimes on Ebay some seller offer "Austrian Raitons" but after a closer look, they are also just ordenary civilan supermarket crap... :evil:

Even on the homepage of the Austrian Army (Bundesheer)
http://www.bmlv.gv.at/facts/management_2010/index.shtml
are no information how a real Austrian Ration will looks like.

Another "maybe" I got on ebay Germany. The seller promised a "genuine Austrian Ration".
http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie ... :IT&ih=001

The content seems like Reiter Travellunch,

Image


the same as used in the German EPa leicht (1st generation).

Image


The label say´s "Tagespaket" on it - it is the Austrian name for a 1-day-ration.

Image
but it has a "best before" date on it. Very unusall for a military one.

The accessory pack
Image
also contains some civilian made coffee a.s.o. but a bar of genuine EPa chocolate :shock:

I called the manufacturer in Augsburg, asking him some questions. They replyed that their company is producing for "several armies", but can´t give any furter information.
He recommanded me, to comapre "my" ration with a regular, civilian, outdoor shop, Tagespaket sold in their shops... :wink:

If you remove the red card board label - it´s seems the same. :cry:

As I paid less on Ebay than in the outdoor shop - I wouldn´t complain at the seller. I just pleased him to explain me the "genuine Austrian" before I will give him my feedback... :twisted:

This ration:

Image

was sold from some "smart" guy, ripping off collectors. It is devenitively a home made fake ration. The label was made on a ordenary printer, showing a WWII German Wehrmacht soldier. If contains some ordenary supermarket crap.

This one:

Image

you are right, say´s "Tagesportion für den Jagdkampf" and is a genuine one. But the Austrian Army also changed to Reiter Travellunch.
I also know that asian page with that ration.

Image
MAGGI is also a German company, producing instand food

Image
The label of the canned bread say "Bundesministerium für Landesverteidigung" (= Deparment of Defense ) and I guess this one will be a genuine, former, Austrian one.

See pic of a female Austrian soldier resting from the site

Image

all food she has are candy bars. No evidance for his ration... :cry:

See what BABEL FISH made out of it:

The luck 儞 僩 偺 慜 偱 absorbs the old woman 偝 傟 偨 儗 乕 僔 儑 儞 傪 怘 傋 傞 ball 惈 temporarily 巑 丅
:?:

I read in a Austrian Ration forum, that also the soldier didn´t got the ration. They got all ordenary (civilian) food supply, never a Tagesportion.
