CRTC's orders are to deliver combat-ready validation training to all units across the British Army ensuring they are ready to fight battles on land.
From our base in Paderborn, CRTC delivers all armoured Combat Ready, and Mission Ready training validation. Our primary exercise is Iron Storm for the 3rd (UK) Division.
