45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team

With the advent of the United States Army’s modular structure, the mission of the Field Artillery Brigade incorporates those missions previously performed by Corp Artilleries, Division Artilleries and Field Artillery Brigades. The Field Artillery Brigade gives the division, corps, joint task force or land component command a headquarters to plan, synchronize and execute lethal and non-lethal supporting fires in support of current and future operations throughout the command’s Area of Operations (AO).

The Field Artillery Brigade (FAB) is capable of employing Army and Joint Air, surface and subsurface fires, as well as Special Operations Forces, Information Operations, Civil Affairs and Airspace Command and Control elements. The Field Artillery Brigade also has the necessary command and control structure to integrate attached ground and maneuver forces and function as a maneuver headquarters.

Vision Statement:

The 45th Field Artillery Brigade will continue to build upon its tradition of excellence and service by developing a professional military force that is fit and ready to serve. We will fulfill our solemn obligation to our nation and state by defending our nation against enemies both foreign and domestic and serving Oklahoma with dignity and respect. The 45th Field Artillery Brigade will continue to be the embodiment of the Citizen Soldier.


Significant Activities:

The capstone event for the 45th Field Artillery was annual training conducted at Ft. Sill, OK. This Unified Land Operations (ULO) training event allowed for the Brigade to further develop the combat ability of the organization. In addition to organic Oklahoma units, the training included the 1-129 FA Battalion of the Missouri Army National Guard and the 4-133 FA Battalion of the Texas Army National Guard.

The additional units allowed the Brigade to conduct multiple synchronized fire missions in a non-simulated environment to include night time rocket fire under illumination and Brigade sized time-on-target missions. Lastly, the 45th Field Artillery Brigade welcomed a new Brigade Commander, Col. Gregory Lankford.

Soldiers from across the 45th Field Artillery Brigade continue to serve their friends and neighbors by responding to State Active Duty missions in support of tornado, flood and winter storm relief. We are also vital partners with the communities where our Soldiers serve.



The 45th Field Artillery Brigade is composed of an organic High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) battalion, the 1-158th Field Artillery (FA); a support battalion, the 271st Brigade Support Battalion (BSB); and two separate batteries/companies, Headquarters and Headquarters Battery (HHB) and the 205th Network Signal Company.
