Pictures have been released showing the big upgrades to the giant Delamere Air Weapons Range.
Established in 1988, the bombing range is located on more than 21,000 hectares, 120km south of Katherine.
Millions have recently been spent upgrading the facility.
The RAAF describe Delamere as one of Australia's premier weapons ranges for practice gunnery and both inert and high explosive bombing.
Military aircraft have the freedom to practice tactics that they could not do elsewhere.
Besides its large tracts of unoccupied land it has 18,000 metres of vertical airspace clearance.
New living and working facilities have been established further outside the blast impact zone which will allow the target areas to expand and increase the training capability of the range.
Delamere is also part of the Growler Airborne Electronic Attack Capability program.
Australia has bought 12 Boeing EA-18G "Growler" airborne electronic attack aircraft, and Delamere is a key to Growler training even though they are to be based at RAAF Amberley.
The enhanced accommodation, recreation and messing facilities have greatly benefited the morale of the team said DELAWR Officer in Charge Range Operations, Wing Commander (WGCDR) Lynette Horne.
"The permanent staff that live at DELAWR now have their own ensuite and landline phones in their living accommodation allowing them to remain in contact with their families," said WGCDR Horne.
"The buildings have been designed to make the harshness of the outback more comfortable. There are covered walkways, fans in most areas, a brand-new gym and full sized commercial kitchen.
"The new facilities have more work stations and work areas meaning that we can more easily accommodate exercise personnel. We now have a dedicated and permanent facility for Raytheon, an operations center and briefing room, a dedicated medical room with trauma bed and purpose built explosive ordnance storage areas.
"The new facilities have enhanced our ability to provide a high-quality support base for operations in the field. All the permanent staff here look forward to the future growth of the range," she said.
DELAWR is being established as a key Electronic Warfare training range in addition to its key role as a weapons range.
Over the next few years Delamere will continue to see an increase in equipment and infrastructure.
