Hi, just a curious question here.

What exactly are the tasks and duties of the three batteries currently assigned to the RCAS in Gagetown ("W" Bty, 45 Bty and 65 Bty)?

I know the two numbered batteries are marked as "depot" batteries, but nothing I've read describes anything beyond that.

45 Battery is OP, Air Defence, and targeting and run the IG course as well. 67 battery run gunline courses (DP 1.1, 1.2, etc), AIG, and STA. W Battery is a gun battery that supports courses being run for the school.

Both 45 and 67 are listed as depot batteries for historical reasons but are in fact training batteries.

Okay, let me see if I get the terms right:

STA - Surveillance and Target Acquisition (ground radars and UAVs)
OP - Observation Post (the forward observers)
IG - Instructor of Gunnery
AIG - Assistant Instructor of Gunnery

Those are correct
