Star Army Field Rations, Type 30

The Star Army of Yamatai Type 30 Field Rations are small ration packs in plastic bags, designed to supplement the older, canned Star Army Field Rations, Type 29. Rather than having separate cans with various ingredients, the Type 30 rations include full meals, one meal per baggie. The foods are sterile and have a lot of preservatives in them so they don't need to be refrigerated. Shelf life is about 5 years and the cost is 20 KS each. They are comparable to the MRE except for the lack of an included heater.


Starting in YE 30, these rations were manufactured on various worlds where suitable farmland was available.

In early YE 43, the Type 30 ration was officially discontinued1) which means the last ones made will expire by YE 48. A similar commercial alternative exists: Emrys Emergency Rations.

Each meal includes one main course and a random side/dessert item, plus a set of standard side items.
