Posted on:

3SDL has been key in providing Defence with critical operational training support.  

Our team has supported the provision of Close Air Support (CAS) and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) emulation of UK and other Nations’ CAS and ISR platforms, and aircrew tactics and procedures, for Field Army Training Branch training events in the UK and Kenya. In doing so we have delivered live sorties exposing UK Land forces to the most realistic and comprehensive training environment possible.

Our collective, highly-regarded training provision provides realistic input and workload supporting the British Army's ability to learn and develop in a training environment, and giving our soldiers the skills and confidence for when they are next called upon for real.

3SDL’s contribution, on the ground and in the Air was judged by HQ Field Army to be exceptional and has made a significant contribution in meeting the Force Generation of UK Land Forces.
