The proposed new field system provides the responsiveness, mobility, and flexibility required to support the USMs combat role of the 1990s and to ensure combat troops receive frequent, high quality, highly acceptable hot meals. Major components of the system include Mobile Food Service Units, Modular Field Kitchens, and the T Ration. The T Ration incorporates Tray Packs, precooked heat-and-serve food items for the entree, starch vegetable, and dessert meal components as well as bread products, condiments, and beverages. In addition, the new system offers a 9 reduction in total cost, 66 reduction in personnel requirements, a 73 reduction in water requirements, and a 94 reduction in fuel requirements.
