105 Regiment roles
Fire Support Teams (FSTs)
Our light role regiment is organised into Fire Support Teams (FSTs) to find the enemy and our gun batteries provide the firepower for the strike. Our dismounted FSTs find the enemy on the battlefield using lightweight lasers, MSTAR radars, thermal imaging and night vision equipment. Once the enemy location is identified, the FST coordinates guns, mortars, attack helicopters and fast jets to deliver a devastating strike.
The Command post is the “brains” of the unit. Taking information from the FST’s and calculating the gun data using an advanced Firing Computer, in order for the guns to strike the target with pinpoint accuracy.
Guns - Our three gun batteries equipped with Light Guns are highly mobile, accurate and pack a lethal punch. The 6 man Gun Detachments are the work horses of the unit, working as close knit teams to deliver fire in all weather conditions, day or night.
Logistics - Logistics soldiers form the backbone of the Royal Artillery. Without drivers, chefs and logistics specialists resupplying the Batteries with ammunition, food, water etc we simply could not function.
105 Regiment has the honour of firing 16 Royal Salutes at castles in Edinburgh, Stirling, and Hillsborough in Northern Ireland.
We participate in all manner of sporting activities including Parachuting, Sailing, Orienteering, Diving, Rock Climbing, Hill Walking, Mountain Biking and skiing.
