M1A1 Abrams Tanks on Exercise Diamond Run
M1A1 Abrams Tanks on Exercise Diamond Run (1.27 mins)
Tanks from 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment (Queensland Mounted Infantry) 7th Combat Brigade conduct a live fire exercise at Shoalwater Bay Training Area as part of Exercise Diamond Run 2017. It's the first time 7th Brigade has employed its newly acquired M1A1 Abrams Tanks on exercise. The incorporation of tanks into 7th Brigade is an important milestone for the Australian Army as it marks the conclusion of Plan Beersheba, a significant restructure of Australia’s three combat brigades. Ex Diamond Run is a major exercise that evaluates the foundation war fighting skills of the Army’s 7th Brigade.
