JULY will be a very busy month on the plain, with four major armoured exercises – starting with the Land Warfare Centre Armoured Division Exercise on July 2 and 3, with Challenger tanks training on the Imber and Larkhill ranges.

This is followed by a squadron from the 2nd Royal Tank Regiment with Challenger 2 tanks, 1st Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment Armoured Infantry Company in Warrior AFVs, and an armoured engineer squadron from 26 Engineer Regiment conducting low level training across all areas.

The next major exercise will be a Land Warfare Centre Exercise from July 14 to 17.
