    Default Operation Slipper - 7 RAR mortars

    The current group of mortar personnel serving in Afghanistan are the first mortar element from the 7th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (7 RAR) to deploy to a war zone since Vietnam. A section of nine soldiers provides a combat ready, offensive support capability for the 450 strong 7 RAR Task Group and remains on constant standby to react to short notice tasks. The 7 RAR Mortar Platoon was re-raised on 27 January 2011, following the delinking of the 5th / 7th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (5/7 RAR) in 2006. Until now, the 7 RAR mortars had not seen operational service as an independent battalion since their tour of Vietnam in 1968.


    The 7th Battalion Royal Australian Regiment Task Group mortar section prepare to fire two 81mm rounds simultaneously during a live fire on the heavy weapons range at Multi National Base - Tarin Kot.
