They have the model 9 green bag, which seems to be a typical single meal, then they have the model 13 tan bag, which is somewhat larger and 2 mains complete with heaters, but except for a tiny vegetable side, and 1 drink powder, nothing else in the #13. I've seen the smaller 'Fast Food' Chi-Com packs. Whats the deal on how they issue these? Maybe a 2 day plan, with 2 each fast-food and 2 each 09 single meals, a 1 13 for back-up?
The nutrition facts on the back both 09 and 13 state that one pack provide around 5000kj Calorie,
I guess it's technically design to feed a man for a day...?
I believe the hole punched on the bag make them "defected" which allow them legally resell to civilian.
these's new pic for the new PLA ration, type 17
looks like it is one of the prototype for the next gen PLA ration
similar to type 09, with one main plus accessories
