Fire Control Orders app on British Forces News

You may have read Nick Barker’s blog about his trip to Salisbury Plain with Radio 1 Newsbeat to see LINE’s Fire Control Orders app on the iPad in action.

Here is British Forces News’ take on the day:

“Now you can learn how to fire heavy weaponry on the iPad. The Army’s just begun using iPads for training soldiers. Forces News reporter James Hirst has been to see it in action at the Royal School of Artillery on Salisbury Plain.”

The app was also the talking point of a Defence IQ interview with Major Tom Ellis in which he discussed the Army’s critical training developments in recent years.
