Units of the Australian Army’s 1st Brigade, Darwin and Adelaide, have begun arriving in the Shoalwater Bay Military Training Area, Queensland for Exercise Predator’s Run 2019.

The Exercise, which will run from 8 June to 3 July 2019, is part of the Brigade’s routine training and involves approximately 1100 soldiers.

Exercise Predator’s Run will include a series of live fire activities between 30 June and 2 July, using the 1st Armoured Regiment’s M1A1 Abrams Tank and Australian Light Armoured Vehicles (ASLAV).

Live fire training ensures the Australian Army is able to deliver the highest capability possible in defence of the nation and its interests.

Residents living near the Shoalwater Bay Training Area can expect to see increased heavy vehicle movement, dust, noise and smoke.

The Australian Defence Force thanks the local community for their support during this important training activity.
