What is inside a dry ration
Like something out of a trip to the 34th mountain brigade, I brought a box lunch IRP-7 (PRI - individual diet), presented by one of the officers, and I decided to try it.
I remind you that this is only one of the proposed options for brazing, other equipment may be different. Specially photograph next to a box of matches, to be able to assess the dimensions
The opened packaging
Now rations are issued in such cartons, foil inside coated. I do not like such a scenario, t. To. Box less resistant to damage than previously used plastic.
For example, in this embodiment, the handle very quickly overstrained, but for her, I actively and not pulled. If you pull out of a tightly packed haversack or rucksack - come off. Also, after opening it became clear that despite the external integrity of the box somehow been damaged bag of sugar and a packet of jam, causing part of the cans and packages have to scour from the above mentioned products.
To top it all one of the spoons supplied was almost broken in half. Either I'm so unlucky or box really afraid compressions.
Made of "Leningrad" (. Krasnodar region is a diversified structural production of the RF Ministry of Defense), whose principal production - JSC "Gryazinsky Food Factory" (Lipetsk region)
is removed from inside the box in which the contents tightly packed rations
Instructions for use
Meat with green peas and carrots
Buckwheat porridge with beef
Herring in oil
Total biscuits 4 packs (8 pcs.), Two of them of wheat flour of the first grade, and two of wholemeal wheat flour. Earlier biscuits dry rations were made only of first grade flour
dry beverage concentrate
The set of three tea packet
Now it is not burnt sugar extract, as before, but quite a normal packet of tea leaves
To tea is two bags of apple jam
Sugar on the three tea cups
The bag full of paper, no protection from moisture is not present, so reserve a long time to bring into the field either breaks or gets wet. uncomfortably
The novelty compared with earlier suhpaykami - black pepper and salt. I never wanted to pepper or salt packed lunch, so meaning they do not see much (salt, however, it is possible for a normal food use), but the thrill will definitely be glad
What pepper, the salt, then again in paper bags, which does not allow them to maintain a reserve in the field.
Multivitamin - 1 pc.
hygiene items presented disinfectant wipes. Now there are two options - body and equipment and cutlery. In the fields in any graffiti will not pay attention, the more makeup wipes the same :)
Punching, separating tissues, poorly done, which is why when you try to separate them was opening one of the packages. It is necessary to fix
Included are three simple paper napkins
And for three spoons against one in earlier versions. In the photo there are four, t. To. Comes with cheese
The same spoon, which was bruised in appearance absolutely the whole box. Visible traces of jam from the damaged bag
opener for cans
Hunting matches and dry fuel. At the last traces of the same extruded jam
I reveal banks. They are, of course, can be heated in a closed form, but you have to make sure that the bank did not explode due to overheating and then open the uncomfortable hot. Therefore, I preferred pre-open
Bank with vegetable caviar opened easier - just pull the corner
Bank with melted cheese is revealed even more convenient
The meat and green peas
Herring in oil. It was awkward to open, t. To. The bank was slightly deformed and the oil immediately rushed out. It is better to pack in the same rigid jar, like cheese
Biscuits wholemeal flour
Let's heating. I pull button Disconnect trivet and container with tablets
Here is a working condition trivet
If the tablet has been removed from the container by a simple push down the float, being made of a soft material, does not want to push the package, as a result of which it had to cut with a knife. Imperfection
Sulfur on the tablet, of course, ignited by a scratching of the grater, but the flames almost immediately damped, so we had to set fire to the matches. Save on sulfur, or what?
Personal advice - if you warms canned food, then put trivet so, as in the photo. And if you want to boil water in a cup, then turn the trivet. Then the tablet would be directly under the cup and the flame will heat it, not atmosphere;)
Before heating finely recommend "chop" the content, so more quickly and evenly heated and then there are more comfortable - Do not spray when the awkward attempts to separate the piece
Hunting light the match
I think, or is it dry after fuel burn-up leaves more "fume" than before?
Impressions from the process of eating.
1. Spoon - sucks. Firstly, it is terrible to press it, a feeling that is about to break. Secondly, who came up to do her sharp edges? Almost every time you send the next portion in the mouth, hurt the inner surface of the lips, which scraped with a spoon. Well, that spoon now more spacious than the previous rations, but make it a little stronger, and round off the ends.
2. Beef Stew. I am glad that it went back the taste of meat that was lost in previous years.
3. Buckwheat. Nothing has changed, as it was good, and remained.
4. Meat and green peas. I'm just not a fan of such dishes, so not much of an impression it made on me, but in the fields will go with a bang. A very satisfying thing, by the way. 5. Herring. Conventional canned fish.
6. Vegetable caviar. Again, not a big fan of such dishes, so prefer to just put the tomato sauce. But again, in the fields will go for a sweet soul.
7. Processed cheese. Just cheese.
8. Jam. Very good comes with biscuits. Negatives - no notches on the package for the strain. As a result, we have to tear the teeth.
9. The concentrate beverage powder. If drinking "Jupiter" or "invite" you know how it looks. In the field, rather drink
10. Seabiscuit. Those that are of first-rate flour is normal, wallpaper - as something not very good, probably because the products do not eat bran. Unusual.
11. Tea. Finally, the conventional packet rather than extract and sugar.
Well, the PRI-7 good rations, which it is necessary to modify slightly in terms of packaging and quality components. It is a pity that there is no candy, they would not have prevented.
