U.S. artillerymen recently began a new training program on Forward Operating Base Constitution with the Iraqi Army to assist them in combating terrorist indirect-fire-attacks.Staff Sgt. Bruce W.

The fire finder radar system training is a 30-day class designed to teach the IA how to operate and maintain a system that will allow them to detect and track incoming artillery and rocket fire.

A team of radar section leaders and senior radar operators from Battery B, 2nd Battalion, 5th Field Artillery Regiment, is partnering with the Iraqi Army to teach them operator-level maintenance and operation of the radar system.

The training is broken up into four phases covering all components of the system including preventive maintenance checks on the humvee, generator and the radar system.

The Iraqi soldiers also worked with communication systems like the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System.

Staff Sgt. Danny W. Tinnie an instructor with Battery B, 2nd Battalion, 5th Field Artillery Regiment, said this training gives the Iraqi Army more capabilities to defend itself from terrorist attacks.

“This training is important for the Training, from Page 1 Iraqi Army because they will have the capability to detect indirect fire from mortars, artillery and rocket fire,” said Tinnie. “This gives them the point of origin where the round came from and the point of impact.”

Staff Sgt. Bruce W. Zolman, an instructor with Battery B, 2nd Battalion, 5th Field Artillery Regiment, said the Iraqi soldiers picked up how to operate the system quickly and wanted to learn everything about the equipment.

“They were able to understand and grasp each subject and were able to demonstrate the proper maintenance and safety procedures for each piece of equipment,” said Zolman. “The Iraqi Army soldiers were very eager to learn the system. It helped the instructors teach this course to them.”

“With the training we provide the Iraqi Army, they’ll be able to identify and maintain the major components of the radar system and use the system to defend themselves against indirect fire,” he said.

خطوة ممتازة و مبروك لصنف المدفعية اتمنى ان تزداد اعداد المدافع و الراجمات بشكل اسرع كون اعدادها لغاية الان محدودة
سؤال العديد من اسلحة المدفعية للجيش العراقية لم تصب و كانت موجودة فاين هي خصوصاً مدافع الهاوتز النمساوية عيار 155

Hi Mirage

The old artillery pieces are in Taji mostly. Some are being slowly renovated and put into use at Taji. For example the D30, M46, Type-83, BM21, 107mm are all from the old army stocks. Similarly some M109A1s were put into use from old stocks.

I saw that at least some GH-N-45 "austrian" guns are being renovated too.

شكراً جزيلاً اخ حيدر على المعلومات سؤال لماذا لايتعاقد صنف المدفعية مع الكتلة الشرقية ذات اسعار انسب و امكانية جيدة مثل راجمة الصواريخ Uragan الأعصار 220ملم أو سميرتش" او حاصدة الموت وهي من عيار 300 ملم علماً ان النوعيتين المذكورتين هي في خدمة عدد من دول الخليج

Hi Mirage F1.

Iraq has not allocated much budget for artillery at the moment. As you can see all their incoming artillery is either renovated from old army stocks, or like the M109A5 and M198, they are donations from other countries.

Of course, with the great threat of Iranian artillery and artillery rockets Iraqi forces face a huge dilema. To be honest the current artillery is of zero use against Iran's huge artillery and rocket forces... and I think (as I have heard) Iraq is not planning on matching Iran gun-for-gun, but in developing air power to destroy Iranian artillery on the ground, along the US style of warfare.

Of course this airpower is not developed yet...

Soldiers of 105th Field Artillery Regiment, 5th Iraqi Army Division conducted dry-fire crew drill exercises at Kirkush Military Training Base in the Diyala province of Iraq, May 19.

Iraqi Army soldiers conducted the full speed drills to practice for an upcoming live fire exercise prior to Operation Iron Lion, a provincial capstone exercise demonstrating Iraqi Security Forces capabilities and cooperative operations between various ISF agencies.

Iraqi forward observers, fire direction operators and gun crews synced at full speed for the first time during the integrated dry fire crew drills. “There were several purposes to this training exercise,” said Capt. Lance Magill, field artillery training chief, Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 2nd Battalion, 11th Field Artillery Regiment, 2nd Advise and Assist Brigade, 25th Infantry Division. “It gave them the opportunity to field this new artillery equipment, and employ the M198 weapon system at full speed.”

During the dry fire drills, Iraqi forward observers identified targets while the fire direction center computed and sent forward data to the gun crews at full speed in preparation for upcoming live fire exercises.

Throughout several weeks of artillery training with the Iraqi students, U.S. instructors also seek to transform some of the students into instructors capable of taking the training regimen back to their respective units, Magill said.

“One of the biggest pieces here is our train-the-trainer efforts,” said Magill. “Field artillery is a perishable skill. We have selected and have been training IA soldiers that will go back to their units and sustain and perpetuate this training for their soldiers. That is what is going to make these guys keep getting better and more professional.”

The dry fire exercises are instrumental for artillery teams to learn teamwork, Magill said.

“Integration is essential for this to work,” said Magill. “The forward observers and the fire direction (soldiers) can know their job in and out independently, but they have to know how their pieces fit together to be able to accomplish the mission.”

The M198 howitzer crew drills, and the capstone scheduled to follow later this month, attracted several different Iraqi news media outlets from across northern and central Iraq to document and broadcast the new indirect firing capability of 5th IA Div.

“We all came here to cover this training and how they will use this weapon and how they will be a better army because of it,” said Munjid, a journalist with the Iraqi Media News network. “We will also be here to cover the capstone; it is a very significant event that will show the improvements in security and bring peace of mind to the Iraqi people.”

Even after the live fire exercise and the Iron Lion capstone event, Magill said the partnered efforts between U.S. and Iraqi forces and artillery training will bring long lasting benefits to the Iraqi Army.

“This equipment translates into more capability; it makes them more viable on a linear battlefield,” said Magill. “It’s a huge piece in their modernization and essentially, it makes a more complete army for Iraq.”
