The regiment was raised in 1811. The regiment was motorized in 1942 and
was an armored infantry regiment between 1949 and 1963. The regiment is located at
Revingehed and has the best training ground for maneuver excercise in Sweden unless
live ammo is to be used since such training can not be performed at Revingehed. Live fire
excercises are held at Ravlunda and Rinkaby. From 1993-2000 it raised the 7th mechanized brigade
with Strv 121 and Pbv 302. After 2000 the regiment will continue to train Strv
121 and Pbv 302 units for the new brigades.
