BATUS - British Army Training Unit Suffield (BATUS)

  • The prairie used by BATUS is the only training area available to the Reaction Force that is big enough to allow large scale manoeuvre against doctrinal templates: we deliver the most innovative Combined Arms Live Fire in the world, in a politically and economically stable allied nation.  The BATUS main effort is to safely train nominated forces and it is planned to conduct 4 EXERCISE PRAIRIE STORMS in 2017. Between 8 to 10 thousand troops will be trained here this year which will bring much needed revenue to the Alberta economy. The BATUS Mission contains Consent to Train activity which is vital to the BATUS future hence why we are honoured to be involved again at this year’s Medicine Hat Spectrum. We look forward to making new friends within the Community.
