104 Regiment RA

Artillery Systems Operators
104 Regiment are a close knit and thriving Regiment which trains on and deploys with some of the Army's most advanced Artillery systems. As a Close Support (CS) Regiment, we train regularly in the UK and abroad with our paired Regular Units. But the training doesn’t just stop there, our members enjoy a range of social, sporting and adventurous training opportunities.

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 observation and night vision equipment – all state of the art and at the forefront of technology, we will train you right from day one.

Our four gun batteries equipped with light guns are highly mobile and even air mobile. Once the enemy location is identified, the FST coordinates guns, mortars, attack helicopters and fast jets to deliver a devastating strike.

Royal Gun Salutes & Ceremonies

The Regiment also has the honour to fire Royal Salutes in Cardiff to celebrate Royal birthdays and anniversaries, the Regiment often provides ceremonial duties in support of other special occasions, in full ceremonial dress in front of crowds and cameras.

Supporting Roles

The Regiment also provides soldiers as radio operators, clerks, drivers, logisticians, physical training instructors and combat medical technicians, all of which are roles you can join and train with in 104 Regiment.
