Members of the 1st Armoured Regiment, Australian Army put their vehicles to the test in the attack lane at the Cultana Training Area during Exercise Predators Run this week.
Infantry dismounts were coordinated with firepower from the Australian Army’s M1A1 Abrams main battle tanks, M113AS4 armoured personnel carriers, 155mm artillery and mortars, as well as Royal Australian Air Force F/A-18 Hornets, in order to enhance soldiers’ warfighting skills in a combined-arms environment.
Exercise Predators Run is part of the 1st Brigade’s ‘Predator’ series of exercises, designed to prepare soldiers for operations as the brigade moves towards the force generation cycle ‘Ready’ phase in 2016.
