The Artillery Corps is part of the IDF Ground Forces.
The function of the corps on the battlefield is to provide firepower to support the ground forces.
The corps combines field operations with innovative technology.
The corps is composed of support units (parallel to infantry brigades) that divide into regular and reserve battalions.
Regular service artillery support units partake in routine security activities along Israel's borders. In southern Israel, for example, artillery soldiers operate against terrorist threats from the Gaza Strip.
