German EPa 1993 ? Type 4 ?

Post by Giantdeer » Wed May 25, 2022 1:13 pm

Hi All

I know there are some very knowledgable folks on here in regards to german rations, I have recently come across this german ration but whats throwing me off is that all items ( where marked ) have a PD of 1992 apart from one drinks mix marked PD 1993. Im assuming this is an " 80's " style EPa but is it very late production as im reading they changed styles in 1993 ? Also have the drinks mixed been replaced with the silver type or were these also found in the " 80's " EPa ?

Any info will be great to learn, Thanks.

In 1977, they were golden:

but that 1979 EPa:

was now silver


I don´t know when exactly they changed the Uelzena drink mixes to the tan Orifo ones, but in the early 2000s, they still had the silver ones for sure, I still have them. So yours weren´t replaced.
