To be honest this kinda sucks... every soldier would like to have a nice, hot meal after an entire day of tiring work in cold, harsh environments. I'd be pissed if my dinner only constituted of an energy pack lol. BTW has the standard MRE of the PLA improved already or are they still terrible like the one tested on YouTube?
Of course they have hot meal, like hot steamed sweet rice. One of the best

Honestly for my asian taste, Asian countries MRE like China, and Japan is much better than some western MRE.
Some western MRE kinda like junk food packed in one bag for my taste.

You need to learn more, before trolling in here

But yes, that's all depends on our own personal taste

Except they do have hot meals constantly? At no point do they not have those and I'm not even talking about MREs but actually pot cooked meals. There is plenty of post here that shows it and more recently there was another showing a new kitchen that was fielded.

I know that the PLA has field kitchens and field heaters but I'm talking about MREs and field rations for troops under combat situations where mobile kitchens and even fresh food are not available ex. a small group of soldiers manning an observation outpost somewhere remote or special forces fighting behind enemy lines. It's similar to how US Marines who are out on combat missions in rural Afghanistan have to rely on MRE too because they can't carry a field heater around let alone a field kitchen. As for the bad MRE I remember watching a major MRE-tasting YouTube channel who didn't like the PLA MRE. But in the end being able to eat hot meals is still much much better than only having a cold energy pack.

PLA MREs have improved a lot over the past year or two. If you're talking about Steve1989, he did a review of the 2018 Type 17 MRE a few months ago where he talks about substantial improvement compared to the Type 13 he reviewed a year ago, even going as far as to say that the Type 17 was pretty good.
