    An un-used Optimus 85 Loke.
    The version used by the Swedish armed forces, Enmanskök M/87 MT (One-man-stove M/87 with accessories), only differs in the stamping on aluminium parts (armed forces three-crowns and the production year). The Enmanskök M/87 MT is used by Ranger units in the north as an alternative to the Enmanskök Jägare MT (One-man-stove Ranger with accessories), ie Optimus 91. The earliest issues of the windshield on M/87 had a hole for the regulating wheel and no internal ring to support the purple-flame burner. Later issues had both the supporting ring for the alcohol burner and the hole for the regulating wheel for the kerosene burner and could therefore be used both with Optimus 85 and 91.

    Used mine in ME and CA. Result where good. But too much of a Mecano in the Winter theatre. KISS roles.
