Fire Support Teams (FSTs)

Our dismounted Fire Support Teams (FST’s) of Artillery Observers FIND the enemy on the battlefield using lightweight lasers, MSTAR radars, thermal observation and night vision equipment.  It’s then down to our Artillery IT Systems Operators to FIX their location and provide accurate gun data to our four gun batteries who are equipped with 105mm Light Guns which are highly mobile by land, air and sea, to provide the firepower for the STRIKE.

Gun Batteries

Our four gun batteries are equipped with 105mm Light Guns.
You operate and maintain the Light Gun, one of the Army’s most versatile weapons. It’s used to support infantry and other combat units anywhere on the battlefield, so this is an exciting role that sees you travelling with the gun as it’s driven or flown into action. You work with your crew of Light Gunners to hit enemy units up to 10 miles away.

The Light Gun is mobile and deadly, but it relies on teamwork to make it effective. You learn to operate as part of a close-knit, six-man crew, sharing all the different jobs on the gun and making some good mates along the way. You’re trained to drive the towing vehicle, and you also learn the IT skills you need to use the weapon’s state-of-the-art targeting systems.

Command Post

As an Artillery IT Systems Operator you use digital communications equipment to make sure troops get the information they need. You get information from FST’s, and operate the computers that control artillery targeting.
The Army relies on your analysis and ability to think on your feet. As an Artillery IT Systems Operator you could be coordinating fire from a range of Artillery guns. Whatever type of strike you’re controlling, the role demands first-rate IT skills and in-depth knowledge of the weapon systems.
