The role of the Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery is to maximise the combat power of the Australian Defence Force through offensive support coordination and indirect firepower, surveillance and target acquisition, and ground-based air defence.
Artillery influences the battlefield by providing indirect fire support, systematic surveillance, accurate target acquisition and subsequent destruction. It defeats or weakens enemy combat power, utilising:
- 155mm and 105mm artillery guns
- RBS 70 missile systems and PSTAR extended-range radars
- weapon-locating radars, ground-surveillance detachments and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
On 19 September 1962, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted the title of the Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery.
