This article contains quite a bit of material which isn't directly relevant to this battalion and is adequatly covered in other articles. For instance, the 'Origins' section is about the formation of the RAR 20 years before 5 RAR was formed, and the first two paras of the 'Iraq' section are about 5/7 RAR, not this battalion.

I agree, this material could be removed with out detracting from the article. Anotherclown (talk) 10:54, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I agree, Nick. This article is on my list, but I'm not sure if I'll have time in the next two months to do any work on it. AustralianRupert (talk) 06:47, 6 October 2010 (UTC)


Does the article mention the AFVs 5RAR uses? 5/7 used to have M113s but I don't see mention of the current AFV in the 5RAR or 7RAR articles. Brettr (talk) 03:05, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
