Current Artillery Units
 

 

The RAA Association (New South Wales) Inc supports the work of the Regiment throughout Australia.

Being located in New South Wales, the birthplace of the Regiment of Artillery in Australia, the association works closely with the local units.

Artillery structure changes from time to time to meet the operational needs of the Australian army. The army is currently part way through the most extensive restructure since World War 2 as part of the Adaptive Army doctrine. The changes will flow through until approximately 2016.

Field artillery in the regular army is transitioning from 105mm howitzers to 155mm howitzers and as a result the term 'field' has been dropped from the unit titles.

The Army Reserve Field Regiments and Batteries were disestablished at the beginning of 2013 and Light Batteries have replaced them on the Order of Battle. This reflects the move from 105mm howitzers to 81mm mortars.

Units and Sub-units are named using Light Blue text. If the unit has a website a hot link is indicated by the Dark Blue text.

There are two Army Reserve Light Batteries in NSW:

7 Light Battery is based at Dee Why.

The Battery is supported by its past members through the 7 Fd Regt Association. You can find out about the regiment's history through the association's link.

23 Light Battery is based at Kogarah.

The Battery is supported by its past members through the 23 Fd Regt Association. You can find out about the regiment's history through the association's link.
