Manorbier Range-Is it closing?

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by Rerun57, Feb 21, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Thought I saw Stormers piggy-backing to Castlemartin today. Does this mean Manorbier is being closed and Castlemartin used instead? Anyone know?
  2. Castlemartin allows a more tactical engagement setting, with some limited fire and manoeuvre, so is preferred for non-technical firings. However, it is hard to get on to the range with guided wepons as it usually very busy with direct fire systems. However, I do believe that Manorbier's future is under review along with many other bits of the training estate.


  3. We used to low load them to Castlemartin unload them there and then drive them to Manorbier, not sure if this still happens but if I remember right it was something to do with the road access to Manorbier with the low loaders.
