Modern Army Issue Ration Pack

A look inside a modern 24-hour ration pack for an individual soldier.

These items would make up a ration pack for one soldier for 24 hours. They would be packaged in a cardboard box and carried by individual soldiers while on active operations.

The packs are designed and developed to meet all the nutritional requirements a soldier needs, while also providing a constant release of energy. Each pack contains up to 4000 calories and high levels of carbohydrates.

This pack contains 52 items including three main meals, hot and cold drinks, sugary sweets, fruit and snacks. Each pack also comes with some practical items such as, tissues, waterproof matches, water purification tablets and cutlery.
