Abstract : The Marine Corps has an ongoing requirement to provide nutritious meals containing the required caloric content to FMF units operating away from established or semi-permanent field feeding facilities. The introduction of a cold-weather ration into the Marine Corps field feeding system will provide the individual Marine with a ration that contains the 4,500 calories per day required for cold-weather operations. A compact, non-freezing ration is required for cold-weather operations flexibility. The required initial operational capability (IOC) is FY87. The desired full operational capability (FOC) is FY88.
