Armoured Corps


The Indian Army fields 63 Armoured Regiments and the list below includes only 61 regiments, excluding the President's Body Guards. From the 65th Armoured Regiment onwards, the term 'Cavalry' and 'Lancer' was dispensed with and all subsequent raisings are designated just as Armoured Regiment (AR). Several regiments have, or have had, independent reconnaissance squadrons which are a combination of tanks or armoured cars, infantry, and heavy mortars. These serve, or have served, as reconnaissance units for armoured divisions, independent armoured brigades, and other formations. The listing below is organised on numerical seniority and is not based on the seniority dates of the regiments;
