Fire support team

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A fire support team (FST) is a British Army unit responsible for directing artillery fire and close air support (ground attack by attack aircraft) onto enemy positions.[1] The term FST replaced the previous name of Forward Observation Party and reflects the inclusion of fires other than artillery into their control.

The FST can comprise six people:[2]

  • A FST Commander
  • The Team 2IC (second in command) - known as an Ack.
  • A Forward Air Controller to terminally control Close Air Support (CAS) and manage airspace.
  • Signallers
  • Drivers
