Army Ranger Wing
The Naval Service
is responsible for patrolling an area of 132,000
sq. mls of sea which is the equivalent of four
times the size of the island of Ireland. The
sea conditions on the Atlantic coast are often
extremely hazardous offering an operational
challenge to the ARW which is trained to complement
the activities of the Naval Service.
All ARW Combat Divers undergo a Boat Handling
Course. On this course the student is introduced
to the ARWs inflatable and semi-rigid craft.
The Course subjects include Boat Maintenance,
Global Positioning System Navigation, High Speed
Handling, Interception and Boarding of all types
of vessels in all weather conditions. The craft
are also used as troop carriers in various roles
for Maritime Intervention and Seaborne Operations.
