Looks good so far. Looking forward to a write-up, when you have the chance.

If you don't mind me asking, why do you issue cans of water instead of bottles, canteens or even camelbaks? It seems to me that they would be handier than a can of water.

What is the canned water used for exactly? Soldiers drink more than three times that per day; it seems such a little amount to have as drinking water.

The canned water is for a supplement to the canteen/camelbak, and yes bottled would make more sense... have to change that later.

Fixed it for you. You needed more micronutrients in the ration and you had too many carbohyrates relative to the amount of protein in the food.

I'm actually planning to design my own field rations, and there are two things that I'd like to know if they're practical:
-Doogh: a drink of yogurt, water and mint. It's similar to Yakult, if you've ever had that. Would this be an efficient source of dairy?
-Lavashak: a pressed fruit roll made of plums. Very easy to make, can be dried and last for a long time. Would this be a good field ration?

Sorry if this is a threadjack, thought it would be appropriate to post here while everyone's on the topic.

For a field ration the issue is how perishable-- I dont how well doogh is going to keep, now obviously the field kitchen can have it available for regular mess, but as a pack ration not sure- can it be dehydrated and reconstituted? If you can give a doogh pouch mix then yeah should be good, I have had a similar drink by the way and the stuff is soo good, I assume the stuff that isnt sweet.

A to the Lavashak - commonly called "Fruit leather" and its an excellent ration snack or accompaniment, I use it in mine.

So...I should use the lavashak/fruit leather for field rations, but the doogh for mess hall? Sounds good.

I don't know if I'm talking out of my ass, but I've got this theory that soldiers should be given "health" foods while behind the lines and high-calorie ones in the field. Feedback on this idea?

While we are on the issue of food can I ask something. Do you know those factory made meals that they cook for you, than freeze and pack in sealed boxes. And when you want to eat them you just heat them up in a microwave. Considering that I am issuing a microwave with each vehicle how practical would these be for field rations.

Obviously, these would not be used for long term over seas deployment but for a defensive purpose there would be a great benefit in that I could gather up supplies from commercial suppliers almost on a moments notice all the while providing my soldiers warm cooked meals to keep morale up.

Step 2 - The designers than go and do their best to make something that works and still looks mostly like what the Great Leader drew.
Step 3 - Once finished with that, throw it away and make something that actually works.

Purp the sodium content in those meals is ...fucking absurd.

So you could do something like that, just dont use those.


Mehdi--
when I say "Mess" understand that an army brings kitchens with it onto the battlefield. YOu will have Mess halls in the rear of your lines and this food will be by and large vastly superior to common rations.

I do not know what you mean by "health" foods or by "behind the lines" as that implies in enemy territory.

You never give soldiers high calorie foods that are excessive--- soldiers eat high calorie foods because they are doing high calorie burning work.

You should be accutely aware of what you are feeding your soldiers, and always be making sure calories are delivered to where they are needed.

Well the British issue a kettle with theirs and Lyras issues a refrigerator. So what's the difference? Its not like the difference in volume would be great betwen a refrigerator and MW combo as opposed to the refrigerator and kettle combo that Lyras does.

If the sodium content is too high than why would a government not regulate it anyway? I mean, the health of the population and all that.
