    US Army MREs are also known as Meals, Rarely Edible :)

    I was just curious about what meals were available to the Indian forces, and any special rations that are used. A bit surprised that tankers have a special ration.

    i have a friend in supply corps of IA. he told me that the type and quantity of rations are dependent on following:

    1. type of work
    2. terrain
    3. personnel

    so u have the ration scale is different for other ranks and officers. to give u general idea, scale of foods which give high calories (carbs and fats) might be more for other ranks than officers. officers will have more protein content in the scale.

    the personnel posted at high altitude have seperate scale of ration. i have heard stories of chocolates and cheese packets being used to create a sitting place.

    similarly air crew (army navy and air force) have different scale of ration. same is the case with submariners, marcos.

    then there is emergency ration which is issued to troops. it is also dependent on type and scale of work of person.

    i hope i have answered ur question. u can scroll up net to check various items being supplied.

    I don't know much about this subject but from what I have read on other forums, especially from OEE, no other army provides fresh and healthy food as the Indian army.

    Right. We dont eat any of the packed crap, if we could help it.
    We ate freshly cooked food, even if we had to do it ourselves.

    The only thing edible in the MREs are the tea rations and the sugi halwa.
    But since I served in a regiment where the men are considered the most enterprising I never faced problems when it came to food.

    Healthy /= awesome :)
    Of course, a diet heavily tilted towards dairy, veggies and minimum dosage of red meat is going to be healthy but definitely now awesome.

    Sorry for the OT. Here is what you will find in MRE for soliders of NATO countries as compiled by NYTimes. It seems french MRE is the favourite according t the article
