provide the best and safest means of Class I ration support (U.S. Department of the Army, 1990). The KCLFF meets the requirement of providing two hot Arctic T Rations daily in temperatures as low as -70°F (-57°C).
Soldiers in extreme cold environments are being offered the KCLFF, M-577 TOC extension, the Arctic T Ration, MREs, and the RCW. They are therefore provided with the right meal, at the right place, and at the right time.
The following recommendations are made regarding field feeding of U.S. soldiers in the cold:
