But the plan says that deployment of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan has led to changed training needs and the use of Otterburn by the AS90
and rockets has been very limited.
On the ground, visitors got up close to some of the armed forces' most heavy-duty equipment including the world's latest battle tank, the Challenger 2, and an AS90
self-propelled 155 mm artillery gun.
These included Challenger 2 main battle tanks (Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, 2nd Royal Tank Regiment and Queen's Royal Lancers), Warrior fighting vehicles (1st Black Watch, 1st Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, 1st Irish Guards and 1st Light Infantry) and AS90
self-propelled guns (3rd Regiment Royal Horse Artillery and 26th Regiment Royal Artillery).
The discovery was made by officers from the 3rd Regiment of the Royal Horse Artillery, who moved their AS90
guns to the location on Friday night.
From the ground, it was pounded by 155mm AS90
heavy artillery from 3rd Regiment, Royal Horse Artillery, and 105mm light field guns from 29 Commando Regiment, Royal Artillery.
It operates one of the Army's most advanced weapons, the 155 mm AS90
self- propelled artillery gun.
The MOD claimed that Otterburn was the only range suitable for test-firing its M28 Multi-Launch Rocket System and 45-tonne AS90
Britain's land invasion of Kosovo is expected to be spearheaded by 40 Warrior troop carriers, 28 Challenger I battle tanks(above), six AS90
artillery batteries and 100 light armoured vehicles currently in Macedonia.
A Perkin-Elmer Sciex Elan 5000 ICP-MS equipped with the Perkin-Elmer AS90
autosampler and a parallel path high solids nebulizer obtained from Technical Solutions were used.
Though supporting arms will also suffer, it will not be to the same degree; indeed the Army Air Corps looks set to benefit from Options in keeping with the increased significance given to the helicopter on the modern battlefield, while remaining artillery regiments will have their firepower enhanced by MLRS and AS90
