Some imagery of B & D Coy operating in urban environment on Caerwent training area. An exercise focused on the transition from rural to urban, and supported by medics from 144 Parachute Medical squadron to give an extra dynamic of having CMT's embedded in sections.

Great to see all this. Out of interest what weapons can you be trained on in 4 PARA? Are all trained on the GPMG?

During recruit training the focus is on the SA80 IW, once CIC is completed the focus on completing training for GPMG, Pistol and Sharpshooter (subject to availability in each Coy)

Black Storm - OBUA confirmatory exercise. Force on force Simmunition followed by scenario of a dawn deliberate attack onto a series of compounds.
This sounds amazing. I think @Snows was talking about simmunition the other day, saying it’s like paintball? 4 PARA exercises look unreal. What’s in the first picture? Is that a model of a compound?

Yes. It's part of the orders process before an Operation to give a visual representation of the Commanders plan.

Great to see how “green” 4 PARA is. My mate is in the Army Reserve but with a REME unit and says he is bored to tears. Whereas 4 Para looks like exactly what people would imagine they do if they join the Army.

A transfer is easily arranged with the unit PSAO....
