THE first major gunnery exercise
for the 2013 training year was held
during March when 8/12 Regt
deployed to the Cultana training area to
conduct Exercise Thunder Walk/Run in
the lead up to Ex Kite Hawk in April.
Offensive support sub-units deployed
to the field as 101 Composite Bty with
a gun troop of six M777A2 Howitzers,
while Combat Service Support deployed
to establish a tactical patrol base.
CO 8/12 Regt Lt-Col Julian West said
the exercise provided a great opportunity
to practise gunnery across the spectrum
of conventional operations.
"This involved training from the
coordination and execution of joint fires,
including Danger Close and Direct Fire
serials, to the tactical deployment of the
gun line, small-arms live-fire practices
and a regimental route march," he said.
The regiment successfully complet-
ed a road self-deployment of military
and civilian vehicles from Robertson
Barracks to the Cultana Training Area for
Thunder Walk focused on joint fires
teams training with the groups conduct-
ing live-fire immediate neutralisation
missions as well as infantry minor and
The gun line conducted live-fire and
movement and was tactically tested
through a complex enemy scenario.
Elements from the Adelaide-based
102 Coral Bty also deployed to Woomera
to successfully conduct a trial of the
Excalibur Precision Guided Munitions.
Ex Thunder Run consolidated the
live-fire training with a focus on the
speed of response after a call for fire,
and culminated in the conduct of live-fire
danger-close missions which had high-
explosive rounds impacting 175m from
dug-in friendly troops.
The exercise allowed the regiment
to enhance its digital gunnery proce-
dures with the newly acquired M777A2
Howitzer and the Advanced Field
Artillery Tactical Data System.
