Discussion in 'Gunners' started by Redcap, Oct 5, 2005.
The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
What is the make up of a modern artillery battery?
Either Rimmel or Max Factor.
(No, dont worry about my coat, I'll be running too fast to get cold )
PE, WE or how many actually turn up?
No matter what the answer, 148 Bty thow a spanner in the works.
Rapier FSC, Javelin (SP or light), Light Gun, AS90,MLRS, ISTAR or HQ Bty? All are different.
There are a lot of different types of Battery and establishment tables as mentioned above, if you can be more specific i am sure an answer will be forthcoming.
From memory, for a light gun battery at PE:
2 Gun Troops with 3 Guns (7 men each, including driver), Gunline Section Commander (the Troop Sergeant Major) and Troop CP (Troop Commander, Driver and CP Acs/ Signallers)
Battery Recce Officers Group (BRO, driver and a couple of odds and sods)
Battery Commanders Tac Group and 2-3 FOO Parties (4 men each)
Battery CP and echelon (BK, BSM, BQMS and other bods, including ammunition echelon)
About 90-100 all up, a companies worth with 6 guns.
Separate names with a comma.
