I think it's real. I have a bunch of pics of this type of ration that I haven't posted to the site yet. Let me work on it this evening and I'll try to either get the pics posted in this thread or on the Russian Rations page.

Russian Rations

I remember reading somewhere that the ration you have is the one they used before the newer ones in boxes came out. It was on a website somewhere, I just don't remember which one. :)

Hey jubifahrer - I was just about to add those pics to the site when I took another look at the Russian Rations page:

http://www.mreinfo.com/russia.html

At the bottom of the page, I have a couple of pics of the ration you're asking about. I'll still put the new pics up, but you should also check out the ones up there right now.

Neat pictures !!
I hadn't realized how large the green 'dry ration' was, the soldat's put it into perspective! Things are really bad when you look foward to a can of ... Carp ! :?

Here are the direct links to his images. I'm guessing you might have a blocked referred problem - or blocked domain for whatever reason.

If those don't come through, I have local copies so I can just post those.
