The Liverpool & Manchester Gunners
We are the firepower behind 7th Armoured Brigade - The Desert Rats - using the AS90, the most advanced 155mm self-propelled artillery gun in service with the British Army.
Our regiment is organised into Fire Support Teams (FSTs) to find the enemy and our gun batteries provide the firepower for the strike. Our FSTs find the enemy on the battlefield in Warrior Observation Post Vehicles, using lasers, thermal observation and night vision equipment.
Our three gun batteries are equipped with 18 AS90 self propelled guns, capable of firing over 24 km. Once the enemy location is identified, the FST coordinates guns, mortars, attack helicopters and fast jets to deliver a devastating strike. We have fired AS90 in Iraq and our soldiers are trained to serve with Light Gun in Afghanistan.
